Our many loyal fans know that the team at Pinball Heaven love everything pinball machine related but even we aren’t sure we could beat Joe Scuderi and his appreciation for all things KISS. As a drummer in his own rock band, former professional cricketer Joe has been lucky enough to indulge his passion for rock music with a room dedicated to KISS as well as owning both the original KISS Pinball Machine and a brand new 2015 Stern KISS Pinball Machine from Pinball Heaven.
The first Kiss Pinball Machine was introduced in 1978 however it wasn’t until 2015 that Stern, in partnership with Epic Rights who are the global licensing agents for Kiss, announced a new line of Pro, Premium and Limited Edition Kiss Pinball Machines.
First up is the high fidelity stereo sound effect using Stern’s new SPIKE platform with an upgraded 3-channel audio system. This is over 3 times as powerful as previous generation pinball audio systems and allows players of the 2015 KISS Pinball to hear 10 of the most famous KISS hit songs.
But the upgraded sound system is just the beginning; other features include:
- Custom speech from Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons
- Full-colour high-intensity animated LED music lights
- High-fidelity stereo sound effects and music
- Original Gene Simmons/Demon head moulded to
- K-I-S-S spell-out Drop Targets
- Blood-Spitting Demon Bass Solo player experience
- Fire-Breathing Demon “God of Thunder” Multiball Event
- Flying Starchild “Love Gun” Multiball Event
“KISS pinball machines reflect the energy, excitement, and experience of a live KISS concert. Players will experience 10 famous KISS hits in the concert arena playfield and embark on an exhilarating experience ultimately becoming elite members of the KISS Army. Players score points and finish game objectives to fuel the audience’s energy and excitement. Higher scores amp the experience–the higher the energy level, the bigger and louder the show–resulting in a KISS concert experience like none other. Players are awarded for completing game goals with a variety of in-game front row seats, backstage VIP access and fun multi-ball modes that thrill players of all skill levels.”
