Released in 1975, Williams’s Big Ben simply oozes nostalgia. This Single Player game has two flippers, two pop bumpers, two drop targets and one kick-out hole, and although this might all sound a bit tame by today’s standards the table more than makes up for this with its characterful artwork and simple old world charm.
Fully restored by our workshops, Big Ben was originally designed by Steve Kordek and features artwork by Christian Marche. A reported 2900 units were manufactured and the table has a 3 or 5 ball (adjustable) replay.
This example is in superb condition and is all set to ring your bell!
A Stanford engineering graduate, Williams devised the “tilt” mechanism for pinball machines and their early models often included innovative features and pinball firsts, such as mechanical reel scoring and the "add-a-ball" feature for locations that didn't allow game replays. By 1967, pinball was in the middle of its so-called "golden age", and the number of pinball units sold began to increase dramatically.
The company went on to produce the legendary Addams Family pinball table, which remains one of the world’s most sought after machines and sold over 20,000 units in its time, setting an enviable record that still stands to this day.
The Games Room Company is one of the oldest pinball dealers in the country. Our founder, Reginald Waldersmith, played his first pinball game in 1960, and described it without irony as being “flipping excellent”. We’ve been selling pinball machines since 1962, so know a thing or two about our products!
