Twin Galaxies Entertainment Festival

For years, the website Twin Galaxies has served as the unofficial arbiter of video-game mastery, scrutinizing high scores and crowning world champions in everything from pinball to Donkey Kong. So who better to host a weekend of gaming competitions, exhibitors and freeplay on nearly 800 retro and modern games? On October 2–4, the Twin Galaxies Entertainment Festival turns the Museum of Pinball into the Mecca of gaming, filling the 40,000-square-foot space with live music, celebrity appearances, and more. Throughout the weekend, guests can casually play on any of the hundreds of machines—both retro (Pac-Man) and modern (Pac-Metrosexual)—or test their skills in events such as pinball tournaments or gaming decathlons on classic systems such as the Intellivision and the NES.

Arcade Expo

The Museum of Pinball is a reunion of sorts: it's where more than 800 vintage pinball and arcade machines come together for a nostalgia-fueled weekend of gaming and high scores. Situated on 18 acres of land in Banning, the Museum of Pinball plays host to offer attendees 40,000 square feet of arcade action—including free play on all machines.

They also bring the gaming experience outdoors to the Starcade, which spans 5 acres of land speckled by gaming cabanas. The cabanas house retro machines, and allow gamers to compete in the sun and beneath stars without worrying about their parents grumbling, "Why don't you go outside and do something constructive?" The 2016 event will also feature gaming tournaments, special guests, and pub pinball quizzes.
