pinball streets in your...
A true players classic... TAXI!
This game was produced in 1988 by Williams, the maker of the greatest and most collectable pinball machines on the planet. This game is incredibly popular due to it's
crazy Taxi-driving theme which requires the player to pick up fares from the
likes of Dracula, Santa Claus, Lola (Marilyn Monroe), Pinbot and last but not
least... Mikhail Gorbachev! Who on earth is not familiar with that nutty
array of characters? Williams was always on the forefront of pinball innovations and this game
was the first to feature a dual 16-character alphanumeric display. It
also features an additional JACKPOT display as a separate feature in the
backglass! The game also has a real light-up TAXI placard right on top
of the backbox and a REAL BELL inside the cabinet that rings when you carry
passengers, which fits right into the
You'll love all of the hilarious sound clips of the different passengers. Listen as Gorbie exclaims, "HEY COMRADE" and "GIVE TO ME RIDE!" This playfield has a fast playing and well thought out design that will keep you entertained and challenged for years on end. Launch your ball into the SPINOUT skill-shot ramp and watch the ball go round and round until it comes to rest, hopefully awarding you some BIG POINTS if you can time the shot correctly. The game also features criss-cross dual upper ramps. The left ramp is also accessible via a CATAPULT! Shoot for the banks of DROP-TARGETS to pick up some passengers, then when you get them all, go for the PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT! This game even has MULTI-BALL play! There's more to it than that... the playfield has all of the classic elements such as pop-bumpers, roll-over lanes, captive holes, targets, slingshots and more! The classic and family-friendly theme goes great in any home gameroom!
Taxi games get so much play that it's really difficult to find one in decent condition, let alone the wonderful shape that this one is in! The playfield on this game is very nice with an original factory protective mylar intact from when the game was first put in service. Some wear and ball swirl marks are present in the non-protected areas. The ramps and plastics are all in good condition with some imperfections and repairs. The slingshot plastics and center target cover plastic (typically broken items) as well as all of the plastic posts on the field are brand new. The backglass translight is in good condition and the Taxi topper is brand new. The cabinet is in excellent conditon with minor blemishes and some touch-ups. This game plays lightning fast just like it did in 1988!
