Im done visiting Videotopia.... Send me back a page

It was the early summer when we all piled in the car to make the trip from New Jersey to the edge of Baltimore, Maryland to see the Videotopia show. Al Warner (of Alís World) Jeff Kindler (of the dragons lair project) and his girlfriend and a couple friends we met on the way all hop it the car for the 4 hour journey to the Museum for a day of fun.

For those not familiar with the Videotopia Expo, It is A traveling museum collection of classic coin op games with additional trivia insights to video gaming in general, console and coin op.
We met Jeff Anderson outside the door who got us in and provided us with a private tour into the "behind the scenes" of the Videotopia show. With that said, we spent the day playing! Click the icons below for pictures of our day of fun!
