We're back!

After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.



Cosmos was designed in 1968 and Test-Samples were produced in July 1968.

Artist Jerry K Kelley wanted it to be the first black Pinball-Machine but the Management of Bally resisted.

10 years later Williams released FLASH with a black Cabinet and it revolutionized the Look of Pinball forever.

Serial-Run started in January 1969 with a white Cabinet. They also had a newly designed Apron with the new Logo Bally Manufacturing Corp.

Especially for the swiss Market COSMINT was presented, the very same Machine with an altered Logo in the Backglass. Production-Run of COSMINT is included in COSMOS.

The above intro text acts a bit like a 'wiki' and can be edited by all Pinside members, including you!
