“I built this collection picking them up one by one, and I put them in my house,” says John Weeks, who founded the museum together with his son, Johnathan Weeks. “I’d fill up buildings with them, storage units.”
There will be a variety of entertaining tournaments there including “Gauntlet” “Pingo” “Pinnect Four” “Parents Just Don’t Understand” and “Swing your Partners.”
Museum of Pinball released a video in support of their Kickstarter effort. Imagine if a budget, Storage Wars/pseudo-reality show was done by pinball people complete with the interstitial confessional segments to bracket the dramatic action.
Museum Of Pinball envisions a total of over 120,000 square feet of pinball and arcade games near Palm Springs, California, and they want to use Kickstarter to help them accomplish this goal.
