January 12th - 15th, 2023 Riverside Convention Center
Four full days of open competitive pinball play welcoming players of all ages and skill levels. INDISC hosts a total of 8 tournaments over the course of the 4 day event
including The Open IFPA World Championship™.
It Never Drains in Southern California began back in 2012 with only 45 players packed into the back of a sports bar in downtown Riverside, CA. After a two year stop at a bowling alley in San Dimas and a few years as part of the former Museum of Pinball’s INDISC Pinball Festival, we’ll be competing for the first time at Riverside Convention Center as part of Riverside Game Lab’s Festival of Fights event.
