Flight 2000 (Stern Electronics, 1980) Pinball Machine

$ 2000 or best offer!!! Will also TRADE for Freddy Nightmare on Elm Street

Fully working 100%. Many parts restored. Full list below.

Theme: Space Flight / Outer Space / Space Travel / Robot

When Flight 2000 hit the floor at the arcade, it instantly drew a crowd. The artwork is excellent on the game, the multi-ball action and targets keep you on your toes, and the sounds and robotic voice keeps you mesmerized! When it’s “game over”, you find yourself saying “Just 1 more game!”

Notable Features: Flippers (2), Pop bumpers (2), Slingshots (4), Memory drop targets (5), Standup targets (3), Kickers (2), Spinning targets (2), 3-bank drop targets (1), Captive ball walker, Dual in lanes, Mini-post between flippers. 3 or 5 ball play. Has robotic voice. 3-ball multiball where each ball is launched through 3 separate "lift-off" stages. This takes place at the upper left of the playfield inside a unique maze-like ball lock arrangement where a captive ball walker delivers the ball to kickers to finally propel the ball to the top arch.

Flight 2000 is on the short list of greatest pins of all time and holds the #1 spot on the list of most under-rated pins of all time. Achieving multi-ball on a F2K is Nirvana. Flight 2000 may be the fastest and most dynamic wide body ever made, and the nudging over the inlane/outlane is a blast. Further, while the space dedicated the ball walker pushes the drop target down the field; it creates an extremely long, sweeping, satisfying shot entering the left spinner. The locking mechanism allows you to really savor the successful shot. There is no multi-ball inflation and there is no score inflation in F2K. It's one of Stern's first seven-figure score displays and it takes a masterful game and some luck to roll it over. The ball lock and special act much like ramp shots without actually being ramps. Getting multi-ball is an incredible feeling with the amazing three rocket stage sound effect. Unforgettable. What makes it amazing? 4 slings, so tons of lateral ball action, Sweep-able drops with a special score for it, The spinners - The spinners are amazing, 4 banks of drops, Great speech, good pops that help you or hurt you, Henry Williams in his prime, Undeniable impeccable art from Doug Watson. Many call High Speed the first pin with a narrative, but there is a well-defined narrative in F2K.
