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.
