Just watched the video of the Orlando show and saw a Hercules there. I have been to the Expo in Chicago twice and it was there also. Is it at all the other shows too? Is it written somewhere that if you have a show you must have a Hercules? Just kind of curious. Is this the same one that basically just goes out on tour each year like a Band?

I am involved with 2 shows we have them at most I like the WOW factor many people have never seen one .WE at PINBALL expo started bringing one several years ago.. Everyone else jumped on the wagon cool

Allentown 2013 did not have one. I remember playing one as a kid and it seemed massive.

The Northwest Pinball Show back in June had one. It was very popular. Lots of people said, "Wow!"

Plus the tv news crews did some of their stories while standing in front of the Hercules machine.

The MGC 2013 did not have one. I would like to see and play one someday.

2013 Detroit show did not have one,nor did Kzoo, Ohio show did.

It's a fun game when the ball has been replaced with the faster unit.

Could you imagine having them set that beast up in the hallway at that hotel!?

I was the originator of using the track ball instead of the cue ball at expo a few years back

No way to put it in the hallway!! Maybe put it where the Woz was setup?? There would certainly be a line just as long to play it. Would still need to hang a couple of air fresheners next to it!

I just witnessed this beast for the first time at CP's. Crazy huge. There was a little girl wanting to play it but couldnt get her hands to stretch far enough to reach both flippers, so we each took a side and played a game together.

It was at Expo in Chicago , Stall the ball on the flipper and the lights in the whole hotel dim .
I kid . It sure is nice for someone to haul this beast to a show for people to enjoy.

The Hercules at the Orlando show (Gamewarp) is mine. It has been to almost every show in the state for the last 3 years, like others said, it's really the wow factor. Media almost always use it to frame the shot. The thing gets played from open to close every day of every show it goes to, no joke. it is huge, it's in your face, and it's something that people that have not played pinball in many years will remember after the show ends!

And yea, Mike clued me in to the whole trakball thing at expo last year

Thanks for housing that monster we enjoy a game or 2 at the shows

Once I played one with flippers that could actually propel the ball to the top of the playfield.

tell me more about this track ball mod please?

#19 6 years ago

Once I can figure out how to cram one of them into the bathroom or something, maybe the MGC will get one

My son suggested adding a shaker to Hercules....an off balanced Washing Machine Motor!
(Thanks Brian!
