It Really is a Scream

Shop Notes 9 March 2018 | Comments Off on It Really is a Scream

We just finished a full shop job on this awesome Addams Family pinball machine. This game is always great, and the owner of this one requested some really cool custom touches that made it even better.
Check it out!

Bally came out with The Addams Family pinball machine in 1992, thirty years after the original TV show debuted, and one year after the Anjelica Huston-led adaptation hit the big screen. (IPDB) (IMDB)

The game was a record-breaking hit. Bally produced more than 20,000 of the games, and went back to production to make even more.

The Addams Family Gold was a hit too, and this game remains atop nearly every player’s list of top games.

We gave this one a full shop job, pulling everything off the playfield to be tumbled, washed, buffed, polished, or otherwise cleaned.

We installed Cointaker LEDs throughout as well, upgrading many of the LEDs that already were in the game.

We installed these killer flipper bats too, and Super Bands as well, for extra bounce.

Does Uncle Fester look a little pinker than usual?

That’s because of this LED strip we put inside the trough. Our customer had requested this, and we thought it looked great!

We also backlit the swamp, to give it this cool green effect.

One more cool trick: Upgraded pop bumper rings. That looks so cool!

Our customer had thought of everything for this game! He even had these new target stickers.

But our favorite upgrade might just be these art panels. Aren’t they sweet?!

We even installed the illuminated flipper buttons! Enjoy the game, Phil! We had fun making it look so great!
