California Extreme review

The 16th annual California Extreme show on 7/12-13, 2014 was a monster hit with attendance approaching 5 figures. This is one of  highest head-count shows in the world. Thousands of classic and current pinball, arcade, and console game enthusiasts flooded the Hyatt Santa Clara ballroom to partake of the flipper and joystick arts. This explosion of hobby popularity seems to be touching all regions of the country and has growing pains that other entertainment categories can only wish for. We will definitely be seeing everyone again next July for CA Extreme 2015.
