classic... NIGHT RIDER!
A vintage players classic from Bally... NIGHT RIDER!
This game was produced in 1977 by Bally, who hands-down made the best and most
well-known games of the late 70's and early 80's. Games like Eight Ball, Silverball Mania, Mata Hari
and Night Rider ruled the arcades,
bowling alleys and corner stores! Bally
was known for creating great playing pinball machines with the best and most
popular themes. The mid-70's was a time when the life of the American
truck driver was celebrated. With popular movies like Convoy and Smokey
and the Bandit and TV shows like BJ and The Bear, it was a great time to be out
on the open road in your rig. Bally capitalized on this by creating a
pinball machine with a trucker theme. They first made this game in an EM
or electro-mechanical format, but with the advent of the "new" digital
tecnology, they re-released it in the solid-state form that you see here.
It was an immensely popular game with over 11,000 units produced between the two
formats with the majority being the digital version. Pinball machines are
presently enjoying a renaissance period with young and old alike experiencing
new-found joy in these games of the past. This game has genuine vintage Bally
feel with a classic playfield layout that's a true BLAST to play!
You'll love the classic chimebox sound effects of this early digital game that cannot be recreated by the sound systems in more modern games. It's a throwback to a simpler time in life when you could find classic games like this at the boardwalk or in the local bowling alley. The vintage retro sounds will drive you along as you try for HIGH SCORES, EXTRA BALLS and SPECIALS! One of the best features on this playfield are the two banks of five drop targets, which everyone loves to see disappear as the ball crashes into them to add to the bonus ladder in the center of the playfield. Go for the top kickout saucer with it's constantly changing point value and try to get the DOUBLE BONUS! Complete the target banks and the playfield special will light for the next completion! Blast away at the upper spinner targets for super scores! The whole playfield is loaded with all of the great classic pinball elements like roll-overs, slingshots, pop-bumpers and more! Adults and children alike go crazy for this game and you will NEVER tire of it! Many enthusiasts will agree that this game is one of the most collectable digital Bally games of the 70's. The popular theme goes great in any home gameroom!
