Stern’s ‘Elvis’ is the first pinball ever to brandish the Elvis name and was designed by pinball's leading designer, Steve Ritchie. It stands as a unique celebration of the music, the life, and the legendary legacy of The King of Rock n' Roll®.
In the ELVIS® pinball machine Elvis sings, "See See Rider," "Blue Suede Shoes," "All Shook Up," "Hound Dog," "Jailhouse Rock," "Heartbreak Hotel," and "Burning Love." Actual recordings are used from the famed "'68 Comeback" television special, as well as the "Aloha from Hawaii" television special. Lest there be any doubt, it's actually Elvis singing!
Not only does he sing, he also dances! A mechanical Elvis with shaking hips and gesturing hands moves forward and back in perfect sync with real Elvis tunes, bringing the microphone to The King Of Rock & Roll's® lips every time he sings a phrase! This incredible effect of Elvis dancing and singing is highlighted with re-mixed high quality sound tracks that draw people into the game.
In addition to the mechanical Elvis, the mechanical-action toys on the pinball include: a jailhouse (Jailhouse Rock); a Hound Dog that the player sends up a pole when hit; a five bank of drop target; and a Heartbreak Hotel with an opening front door on a clear Lexan second-level playfield.
The object of ELVIS® is to collect Elvis songs, win the Top-Ten Countdown, and collect points by spelling out the name E-L-V-I-S.
Jerry Vanderstelt, the incredible artist behind THE LORD OF THE RINGS®, hand painted the artwork for ELVIS®. Al Dvorin, Elvis' tour manager and bandleader lends his voice as one of the game's announcers. Performer Jamie Kelley provides an Elvis sound-alike speaking voice for "Elvis commentary" heard as one plays the game and the singing is of course by the great man himself!
