Creature from the Black Lagoon Pinball Machine
Own the pinball machine that made history! Creature from the Black Lagoon was the first pinball machine to feature an Animated 3-D Hologram! As a part of the storyline of the playfield you have a chance to unlock the 3-D holographic animation which reveals the Gill-man creature in shocking realism!
You’ll be stunned to learn that in addition to historic 3-D Hologram technology, this pinball machine also features Creature movie scenes and gives multiple opportunities for players to participate in the playfield story! This is a rich play experience as would be expected from a newer machine with solid state electronics on board.
It’s no surprise that this machine was originally manufactured in 1992, a full 40 years after the original movie was released in 1954! This makes Creature from the Black Lagoon a modern pinball machine with extremely robust gameplay features and all the bells and whistles you would expect from a movie pinball machine.
The game was designed by John Trudeau and the software was done by Jeff Johnson The artwork was done by Kevin O’Connor

STARTLING! Animated 3-D CREATURE hologram!
