Strange Science is a pinball machine made by Bally Midway in 1986. It is unique because it is one of the few pinball machines to incorporate neon lighting. The theme is a crazy scientist who intends to do a mind transfer with his particle separator – transferring the mind from his pet ape Gertrude into a poor unsuspecting damsel in distress. I guess by playing the pinball machine, you’re helping?
My friend had been looking for a Williams Jokerz! pinball machine. I located one in Spokane Washington and he managed to secure it. He said if he bought Jokerz!, he would probably want to sell Strange Science. I offered to help him out with that.
When the neon topper goes off, the entire room goes red. It’s kind of cool.
I will say, this is probably the heaviest machine I’ve ever moved.
