Bally - 1993
of Rod Serling's most uncanny and popular episodes of the Twilight Zone in
one great pinball machine.
Zone (TZ for short) is widely regarded by pinball collectors as one of the best
machines ever produced and the ultimate in pinball experiences. Much effort went into designing this pin and its obvious from first glance. Its sci-fi/fantasy theme is directly taken from the
original television series
"The Twilight Zone"
featuring its host,
creator and writer
This pinball even plays a version of "Twilight Zone" as its main theme music by
Pat Lawlor and designers incorporated a few
extras into TZ from other pinball machines they created including Funhouse (FH), The Adams Family (TAF), Whirlwind (WW) and Banzai Run
(BR). Many of the items on the playfield and artwork can be
directly traced back to one of nostalgic television episodes.
Twilight Zone is a wide-body pinball machine with interesting playfield and
numerous toys. The
playfield features a working analog clock, 3 pop-bumpers, 4 flippers, working gumball
machine and mini playfield. Even the plunger has a slight twist. The
pin has a manual skill
shot plunger that will send it to an auto plunger to launch. Twilight Zone
is the first and only pinball machine to use a very light ceramic pinball termed "Powerball"
that plays extremely fast on the playfield. There are 18 game modes and 5
different multi-ball modes such as the famous 6 ball "Lost in the Zone"
multi-ball. If that wasn't enough it also has 2 magnets under the
playfield to catch and re-direct pinball's back at the player. The back
glass also has a dot-matrix display for game status, score and entertaining
animations. As you might have guessed, Twilight Zone is probably one
of the most complicated pins ever conceived to date. Great artwork, incredible sound-effects and fantastic
music all oozes effortlessly together in this incredible pin.

what your game will look like upon completion.
Nice bright display
Do you think you have what it takes to
get Lost in the Zone?
Clean enough to eat off of
