Girls Just Want To Play Pinball

Girls Just Want To Play Pinball 150 150 GAD Vending

Pinball began a resurgence before COVID and continued to be a popular home game purchase. As everything opens back up, pinball is a central feature in many arcades, and commercial establishments. But it’s not just men that are enjoying pinball.

In the past, pinball was considered a game guys played. Same with video games. Many pinball games are designed for the male audience with male dominated movie, music and other themes. And pinball machines are perceived to be located in smoke filled, pool halls.

Times are changing. With the release of popular games that feature a strong, female lead like Stranger Things, The Avengers: Infinity Wars and Elvira, there is a cultural changing vision. Plus, men don’t have much of a natural physical advantage in pinball. Women are getting why pinball is so much fun. This is bringing up more women to play and compete in tournaments on both a local and national level.

Owners are finding more profit in putting in pinball machines in bright areas that are female friendly. As more women discover pinball, it makes a better sport for everyone.

If you are interested in learning more about pinball tournaments, pinball launch parties or just great places to play, call GAD, use Pinball Map app or check Pinside.

In the past, most pinball machines from Stern were made in three levels. With various changes that affected both price and functionality, this brought the price closer to what a home user felt comfortable paying. But, pinball for the home user still remained a bit out of reach.

Stern announced their PIN line to bridge that gap. They’ve since brought along three titles that play well to the family. Star Wars Comic Art Pin, Star Wars Pin and Jurassic Park Pin.

All three of these titles are available, in stock (at the time of this writing) at GAD. And, for an additional fun thing, say

“GAD Know Pinball” and get $100 off your new PIN.

(Stern Pinball) A Pinball Adventure 65 Million Years in the Making… Stern Pinball Announces New Jurassic Park Pin, a new stylish, affordable, and fun pinball machine designed and engineered for the home!

Jurassic Park Pin immerses players in a pinball journey 65 million years in the making. Based on the blockbuster film Jurassic Park from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, the Jurassic Park Pin experience will transport players to Isla Nublar, an amusement park where escaped dinosaurs are running amok! With the volcano on the island erupting and threatening to destroy everything in its path, it is the player’s mission to rescue park staff, evacuate and recapture dinosaurs, and escape before it’s too late! Players will experience heart-pounding excitement right from the start in this action-packed pinball adventure filled with suspense, twists, and turns around every flip.

Jurassic Park Pin brings to life the most fearsome predator ever to walk the earth with an interactive, custom sculpted T. rex. Players will battle against the Spinosaurus by bashing a captive ball and corral Raptors in their enclosed pen with precision shooting. Fast flowing metal ramps, lightning quick spinners, and kinetically satisfying physical drop targets will provide players with an adrenalized game experience packed with unmatched action and fun. The all-LED playfield lighting provides dazzling light shows in sync with the iconic Jurassic Park theme music to create an immersive pinball experience.

The easy-to-setup Jurassic Park Pin is affordable, reliable, built to last, and engineered with genuine Stern commercial-quality parts. The playfield is housed in a stylish cabinet with dynamic, high definition, hand-drawn artwork. Complementing the iconic theme and exciting gameplay, Stern Pinball’s powerful SPIKE™ electronics hardware system enables high-definition graphics and innovative animations on the LCD display. SPIKE™ also reduces system complexity and energy usage, resulting in enhanced reliability and simplified servicing.

“Jurassic Park is an iconic film featuring something we all love…dinosaurs! The Jurassic Park Pin is designed to provide quality family entertainment and bring pinball fun to homes everywhere,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc. “This game will be an incredible addition to any home!”
