Space Shuttle Has Blasted Off Posted on December 12, 2018January 8, 2024 by Kris Bliznick We just sent this great Space Shuttle pinball machine on its way to its new home. This machine looked amazing when we were finished with it. Check it out! Williams came out with Space Shuttle in 1984 and produced around 7,000 of the games. (IPDB) The game turned out to be a huge hit, and is credited with saving Williams from bankruptcy. This machine was showing a little fade on the cabinet, but otherwise the paint was in great shape. The playfield, however, was blown out completely. We took a big breath, then sanded it down and installed a hardtop. This turned out to be a great choice! With just a little preparation and forethought, this turned out looking amazing. We installed a new space shuttle too, and a few other custom touches. We also installed Cointaker LEDs throughout the machine. Enjoy the game, Jordan!
