Cara Mia, Look at this Pinball Machine!

Shop Notes 1 October 2015 | Comments Off on Cara Mia, Look at this Pinball Machine!

This Addams Family pinball machine was a big project, getting a new playfield, new plastics, and more. We think it was worth the time and effort. What do you think?


Bally came out with this game in 1992, and it’s gone on to be one of the most popular games ever made.


There were more than 20,000 games produced, and this thing lands on nearly every pinball enthusiast’s Top Ten list.


The game came out a year after the movie version of everyone’s favorite oddball family, starring Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia, among others.


Here’s a great shot of the new playfield we installed. We also added new plastics, color-coded post rubbers, Super Bands, and more.


Full LED-treatment, custom pop bumper bodies, and you can see the mirror blades too.


A beautiful touch added after the above photos: Green LEDs in the swamp that stay illuminated even when the other lights go dark. It’s a really nice effect in this game!


Here it is with the reflection in the mirror blade.


One final customization: A strip of LEDs inside the topper that produces a really nice backlighting. Enjoy the game, Ryan!
