We were lucky enough to have a Cactus Canyon pinball machine come through the shop last week. This rare game is highly sought-after, the last traditional pinball machine Bally put out before closing shop.
Check it out!
Bally came out with Cactus Canyon in 1998, and produced around 900 games before halting production to work on its Pinball 2000 games. That turned out to be the last gasp for the venerable company.
Cactus Canyon has reaped the benefits since. It turns out that being a rare game at a pivotal time in pinball makes you highly collectible.
This was the first of these games we’ve seen in the shop, and we were glad to have it. And we were even happier to outfit it with full Cointaker LEDs.
A few custom touches made this game even more beautiful.
But we’re not the only people who like this one. With its great theme, fun toys, and decent layout, this game scores highly among collectors and novices alike. In fact, it’s ranked #32 on Pinside’s best-of list.
Western games are always popular, but the toys on this one make it even better than average, with its pop-up bad guys, moving train, and more.
It was nice knowing you, Cactus Canyon!
Enjoy your new home!
