For those of you in the United States who missed the episode of John Ratzenberger’s Made in America where John tours the Stern Pinball factory, Travel Channel will be reairing the episode tomorrow at 3:30PM EST.
The show takes place while the Elvis pinball table was in production, so the episode focuses on that table in particular, as well as gives you an overview of how the Stern Pinball factory operates. It also includes an interview with Stern Pinball founder Gary Stern.
Stern Pinball is the last operator of coin-operated pinball machines in the world. It’s amazing to see that they still do things the old-fashioned way, not just with pinball tables, but with the way the whole factory operates. I’m not going to spoil anything, but I will say that it is a must see for fans of the silver ball, and for arcade fans in general.
