A couple nights ago, I spent a couple hours at Pinball Wizard Arcade in Pelham, NH to escape the heat. 4 new pinball machines were awaiting my attention. First and foremost, the latest new production game, Tron: Legacy. This is not the Limited Edition model. I was a little underwhelmed, but when I achieved the Light Cycle multiball, my opinion changed. It was frantic and fun.
Here’s a lovingly restored Cactus Jack’s from 1991:
Hook (1992) surprised me and turned out to be a lot of fun. The other machine I played years ago must not have been working so perfectly or looking so good.
Finally, a favorite among modern era pinball fans, Medieval Madness. This machine was set to 4 tokens.
I bought one of the arcade’s new T-shirts and owner Sarah surprised me with a quick tour of the back room where she said she has about 100 games in various states of repair.
If you haven’t checkout out Pinball Wizard Arcade, do yourself a favor and give it a shot.
