Meet the Phantom of the Opera!

Shop Notes 26 April 2016 | Comments Off on Meet the Phantom of the Opera!

We just finished a full shop job on this Phantom of the Opera pinball machine. This is a really fun game to play, and a good value for the price! It’s fun for fans of the musical, or anyone looking for a dependable game.

POTO 1

Data East came out with this game in 1990, and produced around 2,750 machines. (IPDB)

POTO 2

The game, of course, takes it theme from the famous novel and its many incarnations. “The Phantom of the Opera” was first published by French novelist Gaston Leroux in 1910.

POTO 3

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

POTO 4

Then we installed LEDs throughout: insert, GI, and flashers.

POTO 5

We checked all the mechanics of the game, and everything works 100%.

POTO 6

There are some fun features in this game, including the “magic mirror” in the center, and the organ door that traps balls for multi-ball action.

POTO 7

Sing once again with me our strange duet. / My power over you grows stronger yet. / And though you turn from me to glance behind, / The Phantom of the Opera is there, inside your mind.

POTO 8

Enjoy the game, Pete!
