  • Pinball Prom!! - A Fancy Dress Split Flipper Event at Netherworld - 8th of July

    Join us for an extremely special evening in the Netherworld - our very first Pinball Prom!

    Dress in your semi-formal best for a Double Split Flipper Tournament where you can arrive to the ball with a partner or fly solo in the hope of finding the dream 2nd half of your pinball duo.

    The event is a fundraiser for Happy Tails Animal Rescue Inc. hosted by The Pinball Podcast's Jessica DeNardo and Netherworld's Jimmy Nails, the prom will include a karma keg, door prizes, giveaways, comp prizes and awards for best dressed.

    Registration is at 6pm for a 7pm start for a 3 Strikes matchplay comp on Sunday the 8th of July. Entry is $20 per pair with all proceeds donated to Happy Trails. Grab tickets via pinballprom.eventbrite.com.au or just show up on the night.

    We'll be doing formal photos for all attendees with a prom photographer and will almost definitely spin a slow dance on the decks at some point. We'll consider punch. It's your special night, denizens!

    Check out more about Happy Tails via happytailsrescue.com.au. All money fed to Magic Castle during the month of July will also be donated.
