A friend and new collector has placed his two EM Bally Pinball Machines Delta Queen Safari , in the gameroom of their AirBnB in Wyoming.
I gave Mike his first pinball, a Delta Queen, Add-a-ball, and like most collectors he wouldn't even let folks see it. MINE! MINE! After a while, his kids brought the neighbor kids to play, and he felt the joy and smiles pinball can produce. The children had never seen such a thing.
I promised Mike the Safari Pinball as another freebee. It was broken up and ugly. But like most Bally machines, with little effort it runs like a champ. Unbelievably, a long time customer ( Pinball Chandler) happened to have a headless Safari with good playfield plastics and all it's guts. Mike has the plastics replaced and it's now a fine example of a mid-run Safari. His machine is Add-A-Ball ready but doesn't have the relay, DM me if you have an extra please.
A pretty cool opportunity to play a couple of classic Bally games in Free Play. If you are vacationing to Sturgis, Mt Rushmore, Yellowstone, or The Grand Canyon, this is a great place to stay for a family or group of friends.
