Let’s Go to the CIRCUS!

Jolly good, tally hoe and Bally Hoo! Let’s take a quick jaunt to circus for the day! Oh the sights and sounds on the way to the front arch. As you enter into the big top feast your eyes upon the real treat as talented acrobats fly through the air, fearsome animals roar and prance, and clumsy clowns juggle with dozens of multi-color balls!

Oh-Ho what’s this?! The ring master invites you to the center stage to help out the strong man! Can you hit hard enough to reach the 10x score multiplier? Or perhaps you fancy the double kick out bonus holes instead! Invite up to 4 players along for the day to try your skill in the 3 ring circus!

Fun Fact: Ballyhoo is a circus term that originally referred to a spotlight cue meaning to sweep the light across the spectators in a figure-8 pattern. The more you know!

 

Description

Bally Hoo Pinball Machine For Sale

The history of the Bally Hoo pinball machine is quite notable. Bally Hoo is an homage to one of the original pinball tables known as “Ballyhoo” which was popular on counter tops in the 1930s. Ballyhoo’s popularity is largely credited for starting the pinball machine industry as we know it today!

3 decades alter Bally Hoo was manufactured in 1969 by Bally Manufacturing. Bally Hoo is the first game to introduce 3-inch flippers instead of 2-inch flippers. The original Bally Hoo flyer lists these larger flippers as “Jumbo Flippers” and boasts them as a new feature. Additionally, Bally Hoo features a center post ball saver that prevents play from stopping. As a result of these extra features, this machine is perfect for kids of all ages!

This special version was produced for Germany at the same time as the US version. You’ll note the German “Spieler” on the backglass which translates to Player. English speaking players have no trouble enjoying the artwork and counting the score.

Note: These are photos of the actual game you can purchase!
