“No job too big, no fee too big!” – Dr. Peter Venkman
Few franchises stand out quite like the classic Ghostbusters. The witty blend of humor and horror captivated audiences in the 1980s and the originals still hold up today. Now, Stern Pinball has taken this iconic license and given us a great pinball machine to enjoy!
There are three different versions of Stern Pinball’s Ghostbusters. Each game is based on the first two movies, featuring hand-drawn artwork by “Zombie Yeti”, likenesses of the original actors and plenty of voiceovers that keep players coming back for more. All models also feature Stern’s new SPIKE electronics system for improved reliability and maintenance.
