If you’re of a certain age, you probably have fond memories of walking into a drug store, movie theater, or arcade and encountering a wall of Pinball Machines where a few dollars could provide you hours of entertainment. This simple pleasure is harder and harder to find these days, owing in part to the rise of video games and mobile apps, but believe it or not there are still companies out there making new pinball machines.
One of the light tenders is Jersey Jack and they’re out with a set of three new Pirates of the Caribbean themed pinball games. If you have some spare coin, you can pre-order either the standard, limited, or collector’s edition.
“We are so excited to welcome Pirates into the Jersey Jack family,” said Jack Guarnieri, Jersey Jack Pinball founder and industry veteran. “This machine embodies our vision to deliver beautiful and thoughtful games to our fans, with a theme that will entertain pinball enthusiasts and newcomers alike of all ages and backgrounds.”
Players can choose to play as one of 22 movie characters, fire their pinball-loaded cannon from the rocking Black Pearl on the upper playfield and enjoy features such as an interactive concentric map with 216 usable combinations for gamers to experience. This game will also feature Jersey Jack’s proprietary audio system with a five stereo, surround sound system, along with custom voice narration by actor Kevin McNally (character and first mate, Joshamee Gibbs).
All games are wide-bodied, will feature hand-drawn playfield art, a 27-inch HD LCD display, a 4.3 inch apron LCD display and premium LED lighting, as well as 27 targets, 5 flippers, 2 magnets, and custom animation and movie clips.
How much will this set you back? The price starts at $9,500. How much would you be willing to pay to have your own Pirates of the Caribbean pinball game in your home or business establishment?
