The Addams Family® (1992): is considered by many to be the best pinball
table of all time, which is backed up by the fact that it broke all previous
sales records for flipper games. Based on the movie of the same name released
in 1991, this is a brilliant design from Pat Lawlor and Larry DeMar. All of the
memorable characters and themes from the film are perfectly integrated into an
incredible gameplay experience. Notable features include the first ever optical
target bank, ball affecting magnets under the playfield and the 'Thing' hand that
comes out of its box to magnetically grab the ball! The 'Thing Flips' is an exclusive
Williams/Bally innovation. Using advanced artificial intelligence systems, the game learns
to shoot the ball into the Swamp from the upper left flipper. 20,270 units of this table were produced.
On a personal note, i have fond memories of playing this table at a now defunct arcade in my home town. Good times.
