I have a 3-day weekend in October. Am thinking of going to the Pinball HoF. Never been before. Who here has been? What do I need to know about it? Is October a bad time to go for any reason? It won’t be over Halloween.
If I don’t take advantage of this weekend, my only other 3-day weekend is Labor Day, and I don’t want to go then, because I’m sure Vegas is really crowded then.
This is a weekend when the preschool where I work, and the religious school where I teach will have Sunday, Monday and Tuesday off for “Fall break,” but my son does not have Fall break at the same time (a concept that didn’t exist when I was in school, but my summer was a month longer), so I won’t need to be home for him, and he’ll be 12, so he can manage after school by himself until his father gets home.
All I want to see is the Pinball HoF. I want to fly out Sunday morning, stay in the cheapest hotel/motel I can find, take a cab on Monday to the HoF, spend all day there, go back to the hotel, and get either a red-eye, or early morning Tuesday flight back to Indy.
It looks like I can get a roundtrip ticket for under $300. Hotels are pretty cheap too. The whole trip, including cab fare and food, but not including what I spend at the HoF, can be done for under $700.
Is it worth it? How much can I expect to spend at the Hof?
For what it’s worth, I really, really love pinball.
