Went to Ashville NC to visit the Pinball Museum and while the total number of tables weren’t that big as expected the selection was pretty nice. When you 1st enter they had some classic recoverd tables from the era when Pinball was banned. You go to the bar and get your bracelet which allows you to play as many games as you want. For what it’s worth it’s not bad cause it covers the cost to help maintain these machines. While i had limited battery life (I need to remeber to charge next time) I took am many pics of the tables i actually played.
One of my all time favorites was on display and you know me playing it a lot on twitch. Fish Tales was how i remember playing it. Never did get my personal best from the virtual game but i did get some good multi ball action.
I never played Midevil Madness before and was great to play it for the 1st time ever other then the virtual version which I am working on mastering. The ball play was as expected and i was able to trigger all the events to enjoy them as i did in the virtual version.
Twilight Zone was ok but still played like i did back in the day as well as on the virtual cabinet. I can’t enjoy that table somehow. Just glad that table was on Free to Play mode.
Lord of the Rings was an interesting table. It had a lot going on and it had some snippets from the movie.
I managed to be able to play Star Trek which is based on the original series and they had the lastest Star Trek pinball table and it was the deluxe edition.
Lastly there was the Batman table which is based on the TV show batman from the 60’s! All the main characters and villians are on the table. The objectives are pretty simple but getting the ball to go where you need it was challenging enough. This has became one of my new personal favorites and hope to come across it again.
There is many more to show but with the limited battery i had on my phone i needed to save some battery life so i sadly didn’t take any more photos. I can tell you that the other tables i tried were pretty neat. They had two KISS tables where one was from the 1979 and the other one was released in 2015. They had Mars Attack which i have played many times in many arcades i been to. It seems that table is pretty common. Creature of the Blue Lagoon was on display but i never played it since it’s not a table I would want to play. Nothing wrong with it cause it’s a good table but just can’t get into it. There was Haunted House which I remember playing on a simulation for Windows 95 back in the day! There was a King of Thrones table and while i never watched the series the table itself was enjoyable. There were many more but i can’t remember the names of them.
One table you did see was two player but one person played on one side and player 2 played on another side. It was soccer themed and the playboard tilted based on who was up for defending. I thought that was the coolest designed table i ever seen!
While the place was meant as a pinball museum they did have a few arcade machines as well. There were the classics like Mrs Pacman and Galaga and Digdug. There was Tempest, Joust, Track and Field, Burger Time, Time Pilot, Area 51, Qbert, Street Fighter 2, and many more. They had a few multicades that were the small versions that had many retro games installed. They even had a retro consolse section with Super Mario Brothers, Mike Tysons Punchout, Tetris, and Sonic the Hedgehog. There was one more but it was some colecovision game which i believe may have been missle command?
Lastly they had a very rare game that was based on Star Wars. This particular game was the 1st of it’s kind to be based on a movie. Because of how rare it was it was the only game you had to use quarters to play!
