Hi All,  just thought i'd start a thread for this year's show!

 

Free Play Florida is 3 days of gaming fun in the middle of Central Florida just minutes from all your favorite theme parks.  We cover anything electronic gaming from Atari to Pinball and everything in between.  Tons of panels, interactive things to do, gigantic arcade games, artists, and celebs.  I'll post more as e get closer, but for fun here's our first guest announcement!

 

 

Returning to the wonderful Doubletree Sea World in Orlando, Florida November 17-19!  

 

Tickets are only $25 a day or $65 for the whole weekend of fun!

 

Hope to see you there.

I will be a vendor again this year. Looking forward to going again. If anyone on here is looking for Atari or Nintendo NES/SNES games let me know. I will be taking a lot of stuff with me.

Heya everyone, thought i'd update with a couple quick things!

 

We are just under 2 months until the show and here's your first look at our official event shirt!  Also, as i'm sure you are all just as big of Atari fans as I am i'll announce here first that we've partnered with Scott Dayton, Atari Age, Robb, Albert, and Cybertron Games to make a special complete limited edition boxed game to celebrate the event!  Scott has masterfully modded Midnight Magic to have a cool Florida Retro gaming theme.  We'll share the final result very soon, as our event is a 501c3 non profit the sales of the game help us put on the event!  

 

We have also announced some great guests including the voice of Space Ghost, George Lowe, Walter Day, Billy Mitchell, Todd Rogers, Brian Colin and of course the ever popular Keith Apicary.

 

 

Thanks for reading and hope to see you there!

Looks like it is official That AtariAge will be there this year. This event is turning into a very nice retro video game convention as well as having the arcade games and pinball machines. If you live in the South East make sure to look into going.

aww man, I'm going today but I have a cold. Can't really talk.  Maybe that's a good thing.  So if you see me in my BiffsGamingVideos shirt stay a few feet away and learn sign language.  For some reaon I always lose my voice when I have a cold.
