The video games topic started to get quite a few mentions of Pinball Machines, so I thought Id start a separate topic for it.
A great site for information on pretty much every Pinball Machine made is The Internet Pinball Database
As mentioned in the other thread, I have 3 Pinballs.
King Pin - Gottlieb 1973 http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=1374
Sinbad - Gottlieb 1978 http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=2159
STTNG - Williams 1994 http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=2357
Over the years, my other favourites have been (in no particualr order):
The Addams Family
World Cup 94
Eight Ball Deluxe
Simpson Pinball Party
Terminator 2: Judgement Day
Playboy (1978 Bally version http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=1823)
Attack From Mars
And Im sure theres a number Ive missed.
Who else owns some and/or spent way too much time and money in Amusement Parlours when young?
Which ones stand out (for good or bad reasons - EG: The ill fated Banana Flippers experiment - Disco Fever)?
And does anyone else get boxes of stuff delivered from Marco Specialities in the USA?
Sleep is overrated
King Pin is my era the rest are modern.
BTW the link to the Playboy machine is wrong.
My dad used to run a kafenio and after school Id go and play the pinnies, including some old style like Coney Island.
