Halloween 2017

What do you get when you take a 5.1 Outdoor movie experience, add in 98 glow ice cubes, 120 glow sticks, a makeshift haunted house, a table full of tasty treats and enough sugar to induce a diabetic coma?    Halloween 2017 at our house. :)

Here's a clip from our Nest cams from the block party & awkwardly appropriate halloween-era music track that captures the meta-narrative and sea of neighbors & friends that came out to enjoy some Arcade and Pinball fun.

Halloween Party 2016

A quick clip showing some of the awesome level of activity from our Halloween block party / outdoor movie.

Full clip of some of the video feeds from the gameroom during the party. 

I've gotten a little tongue-in-cheek heat from friends in this hobby about scaling back on pinball in our gameroom but watching these clips reinforced to me that I made the right call. Moving away from 'how many more pins can I fit in this room?' and towards, "how can we make this space fun and inviting for a variety of arcade-nostalgia seekers" paid off in a big way!  

For Halloween 2016 we had a great turnout for an outdoor halloween movie and some arcade goodness. :)

We watched Hocus Pocus on the outdoor screen. There is something just fun and magical about outdoor movies in the cooler fall evenings!

A certain dark-side force user got to stop in for some pinball action to many of our Star-Wars themed guests' excitement!

Halloween Block Party 2015

We've always really enjoyed Halloween, such a great holiday for kids (of all ages). :)

Halloween, 80's movies and music and arcades naturally gel with one another. A good trip down nostalgia lane! For our Halloween party this year, we turned it into more of a block party. We had 45+ guests over for an outdoor showing of Ghostbusters. It was a pot luck with a ton of great food and friends.

This feed is from one of the Nest cams in our walk-out basement.
