Press Release – Tilt Amusements Signs on to Sponsor RetroJAX Weekend 2019

Jacksonville, Florida – October 12, 2018 – Jacksonville Arcade & Pinball Expo is proud to announce that Tilt Amusements has once again signed on to support RetroJAX Weekend 2019.  

As a longtime friend and partner of the show, Tilt Amusements has always been heavily involved in the Jacksonville Arcade Expo. In 2015, Tilt sponsored our PINRAFFLE event where we raffled off winner’s choice of a brand new Stern pinball machine. Tilt also delivered several new-in-box Stern pinball machines to the 2015 show creating a beautiful, interactive floor display and allowing our guests to play the newest pinball machines on the market at that time. 

We are thrilled to welcome Tilt Amusements back as a sponsor for our 2019 show! If you are considering a new pinball machine for your gameroom, we’d like to strongly suggest you reach out to Trent at Tilt Amusements.

 

About Tilt Amusements

TILT Amusements is a full-service pinball and coin-op sales and maintenance business owned and operated by pinball enthusiasts. Where you buy your machines, and who you let service them, really matters. Don't make the mistake of spending thousands of dollars with a vendor who is just some dude in a bathrobe reselling stuff over eBay. We take this stuff seriously - we love pinball and want to do everything we can to preserve this unique mechanical form of entertainment for generations to come.

About Maple Street Biscuit Company
Maple Street Biscuit Company was started by Scott Moore and Gus Evans, and they hand built it right here in Jacksonville, Florida. They opened their doors on November 8, 2012 to a community with open arms and hungry tummies.
There lies a heartbeat behind Maple Street before it ever opened its doors, and it wasn’t out to just make a profit. It was out to make a difference and be a part of the community. Walking into every Maple Street, you should be walking into a culture created around the idea of just that.
