A Game Which We Call The Twilight Zone

Shop Notes 30 October 2016 | 1 Comment

We just finished a full shop job on this Twilight Zone pinball machine. This game is a perennial favorite among players and owners alike. And this particular machine appeared home-use only!
What a beauty!

Bally came out with Twilight Zone in 1993, and produced more than 15,200 machines. (IPDB)

tz2

The game, of course, is based on the Rod Serling-led TV show, which aired 1959-1964, 156 episodes. (IMDB)

“It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.”

We installed full LEDs in this machine, if you couldn’t tell. Insert, GI, and flashers.

tz6

We fully shopped the game, pulling everything off the playfield to be tumbled, buffed, washed, polished, or otherwise cleaned.

tz7

How many different episodes can you pick out in the background of the translite?

Here’s one of those toys we were talking about: The mini playfield, complete with magnet flippers.

Another great toy: The gumball machine in the back left corner. We added the colored marbles. It’s usually empty.

Rod, you never looked so good. Enjoy the game, Ed!
