Noteworthy features

  • Rocket Ramp. A ramp with a beautifull plastic Apollo Rocket on top.
  • A big plastic moon accompanies the right ("blastoff") ramp. Its magnet can grab the ball and rotate it around to a big hole beside of the ramp.
  • Saturn Abort handle functions as plunger.
  • Lunar lander with red mode start light on bottom that looks like flame.

Trivia

  • Incorporates a 13-ball multiball, the most of any existing pinball.
  • Trivia: Tom Hanks did not give permission for his image to appear in the game, so artists "included" him in the backglass as the suited astronaut.
  • Plays "Spirit In The Sky" during multiball

Backbox ornament(s)
