Ripley's Believe It Or Not Pinball By Stern 2004 at
Another classic pinball from Pat Lawlor but not as popular as some of
his other titles.
This could be seen as a Stern version of Twilight Zone as it too is
full of different items.
This side artwork features a pinball on top of various photos from the
Ripley collection with a deep blue background.
The side artwork features a shruken head. This is a feature that
is aslo on the playfield.
The front door has a sticker and the front art carries a photo of Mr.
Here is the lower playfield view. Note the dog with the false
teeth on the left slingshot plastic.
In the lower center of the playfield is a matrix which must be
completed by the player.
The left side of the playfield has a kickout scoop in about the same
spot as Addams Family and Whirlwind.
Here is a closeup of the shruken head which talks to the player during
the game. This is a recurring theme in Lawlor pinball games with
being present in Funhouse and Roadshow. However, due to shrinking
budgets today the head on this modern Stern pinball machine has no
animation or electronics.
Here is a view of the bottom of the playfield.

Notable Features: 'Believe it or Not.'® feature: This multi-level

A very strong magnet under the shrunken head catches the ball, holds it
for a second,
then shoots it to the rear. In another mode, the magnet stops the ball
gives it back to the lower playfield.
