Cirqus Voltaire Pinball Machine by Bally

Cirqus Voltaire Pinball Machine for sale. This is a 1997 pinball game, designed by John Popadiuk and released by Midway Games (under the Bally label). The theme involves the player performing many different marvels in order to join the circus. Some of the captivating features include a neon light running along the right-hand ramp.

A pop bumper rises up from the middle of the playfield at certain times. A mini-playfield at the top of the center ramp with a magnet catches the ball for locking. The most notable feature is the Ringmaster, a head that rises at certain times and makes cracks against the player.

It was the first Williams/Bally pinball machine missing a real replay-knocker. The replay-knocker device driven by a coil to produce a loud bang when hammering against the wood of the cabinet. Instead this sound effect  pre-recorded and played via the regular speakers.

It was also the second machine (after Capcom’s Flipper Football, released in 1996) to move the dot-matrix display (DMD) from the backbox right into the cabinet, so the player isn’t distracted from gameplay when watching the DMD (an idea that was taken to the maximum with the Pinball 2000 architecture two years later).

Game Features:

Flippers (2), Pop bumpers (3), Slingshots (2), Stop magnets (3), Standup targets (9), Kick-out holes (2), Spinning targets (2), Speech, Playfield-mounted dot matrix display. The menagerie ball, a large plastic ball trapped within a cage above the left slingshot, hit it with the ball in play and disrupt ball direction. cirqus voltaire pinball machine.

The Ringmaster is an animated head that elevates from the underside of the playfield and makes wise cracks at the player, who tries to defeat him by hitting him with the pinball in various modes. A stop magnet is on the top of the Ringmaster’s head, holding the ball there when the head rises up.  Cirqus Voltaire Pinball Machine by Bally

One of the three pop bumpers “disappears” by dropping down until its flat plastic top is level with the playfield.cirqus voltaire pinball machine. The backbox animation simulates a cannonball fired to ring a bell, although the bell  really just a piece of plastic with a bell drawn on it.

This animation mostly activated automatically by the game but one feature allows the player to continuously fire the cannonball using the flipper buttons in a timed mini-game. Gain points if the ball takes a certain path in the fall (this path having a switch).cirqus voltaire pinball machine cirqus voltaire pinball machine
