TOURNAMENT INFO

On Saturday night the Festival will be conducting another social comp for players to engage in some fun competitive pinball.

The Tournament will follow the popular knockout format where players go head-to-head and receive a strike for losing a game. After receiving 5 strikes, a player becomes eliminated from the competition, with rounds continuing until there is the last player standing.

No experience in competitive pinball is necessary to participate, our friendly Tournament Team will be on-hand to facilitate the action every step of the way.

Tournament Entry: $20

Note. Tournament entries are additional to Festival Entry Passes and can only be purchased on the day at the Festival.
