A Pinball Machine of Astronomical Proportions: Galactic Dimension

[Thanks to Niklas Roy for the info!]

We’ve covered unique pinball machines on AH a few times, most recently with this post about an 8-player pinball machine and some others. Today comes word of another unique table, something that makes the famous Hercules or Big Foot pinball machines look small, Galactic Dimension.



To quote the creator of the project, Niklas Roy:

Galactic Dimension is a supersized pinball machine which I’ve built for Phæno – an amazing science center in the German city of Wolfsburg. The pinball was built on a steep ramp in the exhibition hall and has a gigantic playfield, which measures 3×6 meters in total…I repurposed everyday items like hair dryers and office fans for the playfield elements, giving the visitors the idea that they could also build such a contraption at home.

Since the chances of most readers not being able to make the visit the Wolfburg, here is a video showing it in action. Looks like fun – see a non-licensed game can be cool! 😛

    Just watch. Gary Stern is going to try marketing one of these with a license attached.

      Almost forgot he’ll also have a limited edition to go along with it, but you’ll have to pay a P-R-E-M-I-U-M. har har!

    Looking back on my previous post, I suppose it was a tad bit in bad taste. However given the current state of affairs, this is after all something to think about when you take another look at it. Obviously he’s taking some of us for a ride.

    Now back on to the subject at hand, I’d imagine it would be interesting to see how the ball physics will work having a jumbo sized table like this. Kinda makes you wonder if every amusement location should have one.

    This is awesome! I usually play with regular-sized pinball machines and already find enormous satisfaction in doing so. I can only imagine the fun and excitement that a supersized pinball machine can offer. I’d love to try this!
