Just visited American Pinball today and everything looks great. Looks like production should be starting in 2 weeks on games going to Expo. The production playfield looks very vibrant and should pop under the added lights. Game was playing super fast today. Thanks Rosh and Balcer for giving me a update of the new production facility. I couldn't take pictures, but the lines, stations and final testing areas are coming along.

If you want to get in on a Houdini Pinball machine, Pm me or visit our site below.

I have a Houdini and the shot that goes into the magic trunk may need to be adjusted. The lower catapult coils strength will need to be adjusted. Its a simple adjustment which the operator should make. If it is going into the trunk and then going through ball search then its a switch adjustment. I have 71 plays on my game and had to make a few adjustment, but it is playing like a champ. Feels like a 90's Bally / Williams game! Very fun to play satisfying shot. not to difficult, great modes, movie modes and multiballs.
