I'm impressed with the pinball idea too. It personalizes it, yet continues the theme with a bit of whimsy and as you know from this site, stuff like that can be frowned upon. You've got moxie and a great pad!

Thanks. When I set out to build this bar, I was determined to fit a pinball in it somewhere, and when the opportunity came up to buy the Bali Hi machine, it was just too perfectly serendipitous to pass up.

I've really never gotten any flack from the folks at TC for mixing themes, and quite frankly, it wouldn't make the slightest bit of difference to me if I did. It's my space, and I love it.

It certainly is. Bally only produced about 70 of them, and only 4 or 5 are known to still exist, so it's very rare and collectible.

Been a while since I've posted here, so I thought I'd stop by to clean up the dead links. Not much happening in the Hai'deway over the past year or so, but I did find a nice round bamboo shelf on a recent visit to Duluth, MN, which I've repurposed for my mugs:



The Hai'deaway is a big hit with my cow-orkers, but I still haven't managed to train them to show up in Aloha wear...although one wiseass (on the right) keeps showing up in an NSA t-shirt:

Nice shelf Mr B H! I hear them referred to as “rounders” I’ve seen em with wood shelves and with glass shelves.
Haven’t found one in my price range yet but I’m looking.
Mahalo for sharing.

Your bar looks amazing! Thank you for posting again, I don't think I had seen it before. Hope that pin is still working! I love all the OA art you have incorporated.

@nui 'umi 'umi: I think the "rounder" set me back about $40. Not exactly a bargain, but not a budget-buster either...which is the way most of my finds go these days.

@lunavideogames: yep, the pin still works, although the contacts and playfield are way overdue for a cleaning.
