Pinball Hall of Fame Walkthough Tour Part 1 (2013)

This week we're going back to the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas for a two part tour! Part one of the tour showcases the lineup of newer Stern tables including both premium versions of AC/DC and Metallica. You'll be seeing full videos on both games coming soon! This part shows off many of Tim Arnold's Gottlieb collection in which he owns every game they ever made. He has two rows dedicated to the "wedgehead" style games with titles like Central Park, TKO, Centigrade 37 and one I'm not too fond of, Sky Jump....

This part also shows off the oldest game in the museum, the "World's Fair" machine was built back in the 1930's and it still works to this day. It's all mechanical with no electricity at all. Just load up the ball and shoot to try to uncover the postcard in the middle to score points. This also shows off their Wizard of Oz machine which is sadly a basket case. The board is still running a prototype version so they can't upgrade it until they get the final board sets and many of the lights and toys don't function correctly. I hope they get it back up and running since many people are very interested in playing it.

Be sure to tune in on Thursday for a look at the second part of the tour which includes more solid state games from the 70's, 80's and 90's and a look at the collection of different arcade games!
