General Show Information / CAX 2017 Dates Announced!!
« Last post by Jeff Kinder on January 18, 2017, 09:34:35 pm »

We are very pleased to officially announce the dates for this year's California Extreme Arcade and Pinball Show. It will be held on July 29-30, 2017 at the same fantastic location - the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, California. Please join us for our 21st show with hundreds of your favorite arcade and pinball games, both past and present, all gathered together for another fun-filled weekend of pure arcade excitement for folks of all ages!

We are working on this year’s lineup of seminars, guest speakers, and other arcade-themed events that make the show so much fun each year. On that note, we are looking to you, the arcade community, for suggestions for topics and speakers. Is there something you would like to see presented (or even to present yourself)? This is your chance to let us know what you would like to see! Send us an e-mail at and let us know. We welcome all suggestions and will consider each one carefully.

The hotel will start accepting reservations at a later date (another announcement will go out). Please do not contact the hotel until we let you know the block is open as you will not be able to get the special CAX group rate.

Start making your plans, requesting time off work, making reservations by planes, trains, automobiles, and especially trucks to come out and join us for another crazy, arcade-filled weekend!

And be sure to let us know if you're interested in bringing games and/or volunteering to help us out by contacting us at Both are most welcome (and can possibly be worth free admission and/or other goodies!).

Thanks to all of our previous exhibitors and volunteers. We hope we can count on you again, and if you've never brought games or volunteered before, why not give it a try this year? You'll have a great time!

General Show Information / Panic Park
« Last post by Ken Chaney on July 10, 2016, 11:51:30 pm »
The Panic Park contest will be back once again!  This is a crazy event with some twists beyond the usual wackiness of Panic Park.  There are some rounds that just call for extra interaction with the player, and your hosts mean to apply it!  You'll have to wait to get the details, but there will be Easter Egg prizes in addition to the cash and of course a cheezy crown for the overall champ.  The plan this year is to run A SINGLE 16 player single elimination bracket with a $3 entry, all cash awarded to the top 3 places.  You'll love it, but will need to sign a waiver!  Planned time for the tournament is Sunday afternoon at 1:30.  Signup will be before the tournament at the registration desks.

Oh, and hey, we're considering making change this year.  No promises, let me know what you think about it.
