Quoted from MCE_LLC:

I picked up Jungle Queen as a project pin through Craigslist. It was in someone's basement for 15 years and then a garage for 3-5 years. Play count is ~22000. It has some EM issues that need to be sorted out. It's my first EM pin and my first project so I expect it to take a while. Physically, it's in great shape.I love the artwork.The backglass is in great shape.The playfield is pretty good as well.It seems to have held up well.What is all this stuff?The problem is here somewhere. I just know it.


Enjoy the process! Just take your time examining the architecture and thinking your way through the layout and mechs. One thing at a time. Does each relay switch on/off or off/on when it clicks? Do the reels reset to zero? Feel free to start a new thread if you'd like to share the process. Can't think of a better first candidate to start with... very nice find indeed!

Yes indeedy... though finding them in a 12W is a real bitch.

No,YZF, they don't! They can own a WOZ but that's where I draw the line.

Haha... no worries, your secret is safe with me. :p

Quoted from MrBellMan:

I still have my share of Bally keepers!

Good choices! Flash Gordon and Eight Ball Deluxe are my two favorites from the Bally golden age.

Quoted from dasvis:

Welcome to the club John - my $120 OC is getting close to first start up after many months of labor. I love these mid-70's Bally EM's! -- well, everything except those damn light sockets.

Yep... I think the Bally 70's-era is probably my overall favorite. Starting with Hi-Deal in '75 they began using that sexy curved top rail for the arch instead of stamped metal plates. Just looks fantastic.

Bow & Arrow, Old Chicago, and Freedom (particularly the prototype edition) are the "Big Three" from this era in my opinion. Huge & gorgeous backglass art, fun layout, fast gameplay... it's all there. Love it.

Never played Heat Wave but I have one coming up soon in my restoration queue. Always loved the artwork and theme (Texas, yanno). Most importantly the unusual layout/moving targets/backbox animation looks fun.

Quoted from o-din:

I guess you'll be playing [Heat Wave] then. Beyond the artwork, features, and layout, it has progressive rule set that allows higher scoring as you progress thru the game, but at the same time the shots that allow you to progress become less and less. Makes you get that one more dime feeling.

Best I could do since to my knowledge Williams never released an "El Niño" pinball machine... sheesh... more rain all week!

Aztec is cool. Very simple, but in just the right way. Williams was finally getting their EM act together just as EM's were being sent out to pasture. Rancho, Hot Tip, Grand Prix also winners from the late era.

...and game # 2 is Gotlieb 1967 Surf Side. I am not a Gotlieb guy but it has cool double flippers and roto target goodness. Played a really nice one today at the Roanoke Pinball Museum.

Hey Ballypin! That was one of my personal machines on the floor. It won a best original ribbon at TPF in 2015 I believe. People LOVE playing Surf Side in 2-player mode after I teach them the rules. It is so much more fun with another player... easily Gottlieb’s best multiplayer of the 60’s.

Did we meet while you were there? Pardon... these 80-hour weeks are hell on my memory!

Phantasm would be perfect. I mean, come on, THE BALL OF DEATH!

Jumping Jack yesterday... Jungle Queen, Sheriff, and Big Day today.

So many EM’s, so little room.
