Pinball Heaven at the Ideal Home Show

Pinball Machines at Olympia London

Taking place between 18th March and 3rd April, the Ideal Home Show is the UK’s premier interior design event showcasing everything from eco builds to smart technology. With over 500 exhibitors at London’s Olympia, Pinball Heaven were thrilled to be asked to take part.

“The organisers approached us to see if we would like to install pinball machines into the Duke’s Head pub for the duration of the exhibition and we were happy to be able to say yes,” said Pinball Heaven’s Managing Director, Phil Palmer.
“A key focus of my business is to promote the pinball culture to a wider audience and what better way to do this than to have our pinball machines showcased at one of the UK’s busiest exhibition venues during the Ideal Home Show.”

Whoa Nellie and Spiderman Vault

After discussions with the organisers, who had decided to go for a retro feel, Pinball Heaven have donated Whoa Nellie and Spiderman Vault, two games which Phil thinks will suit the Duke’s Head location.

Pinball Heaven Supporting the Katie Piper Foundation

In supplying the machines, Pinball Heaven are also helping to support the Katie Piper Foundation, the Ideal Home Show’s charity partner for the second year running, who work tirelessly to make it easier for people to live with burns and scars. Each machine costs just £1 to play, with 100% of the money raised donated to the charity.

Phil said, “I am pleased to be able to work with the event organisers to support such a worthwhile charity and I hope people visiting the show enjoy playing the games we have supplied.”

Stellar Performance from the Stern Star Trek Pinball Machine

Stern’s Star Trek Pinball Machine has been the best selling pinball machine of the last two years and, at Pinball Heaven, we can understand why. Designed by Steve Ritchie and based on the JJ Adams films, the Star Trek Pinball Machine has been a perennial favourite, standing the test of time for pinball fans in both the UK and worldwide.

Before we take a look at the pinball machines itself, let’s explore the Star Trek pinball machine story because the gameplay really is a classic in terms of good versus evil. Players are in the hot seat straight away, embarking on a journey to protect and defend the planets of the Federation. Your specific goal is to defeat the U.S.S Vengeance, rescuing Spock and other Starfleet colleagues in the process.

So, on to the gameplay. The Star Trek Pinball machine playfield features seven multicolored LED paths that lead gamers on easy-to-understand color-coded routes. There are six missions for casual players matched by 18 complex treks to immerse enthusiast players deeper in the game. As players attack an oncoming threat with three action-centered flippers, the all-LED playfield will captivate onlookers and enhance the player experience with features like phaser flashes and photon torpedoes.

With several different missions to choose from and superfast gameplay, the Star Trek Pinball Machine really does provide an immersive gaming experience including voice clips taken from 2 movies as well as custom speech by Karl Urban; Stern sent the actor a Star Trek Limited Edition as a thank you. In the opinion of everyone at Pinball Heaven, having custom speech from actors involved in the Star Trek films really adds to the game play and enjoyment.

The machine features a deep rule set, provides excellent flow and, should you wish, there are many modification options available that will allow you to customise your Star Trek pinball.

Of course, we couldn’t write a blog about Star Trek Pinball without a brief nod to Captain James T Kirk, so as an aside, does anyone know what the “T” stands for? Answers in the comments section if you do.

Funhouse pinball machine total restoration in the making

Here is the making of another of our funhouse premium restorations!

We start by taking all the old stuff off the old playfield and getting the parts and loom over to the new playfield, replacing as we go.

Every last part comes off the old playfield until all we are left with is the wooden playfield.  Then we have to transplant all the parts and or replace with new, onto the new playfield.  Many hours work goes into making a Premium Restoration machine.  More updates to follow
