of Universal Studios most famous Monsters form a band and together they play
Monster Bash. Who knew they could even play
instruments or sing for that matter? Monster Bash features the Creature from
the Black Lagoon, Bride of Frankenstein, Frankenstein, Mummy, Wolfman and
Dracula that are all beautifully represented on the playfield. Even Dr.
Frankenstein and Egor are present.
Collect all the monsters and their instruments to start the Monster Bash, Mosh
Pit and Monsters of Rock modes. In Drac Attack Dracula comes out into the
middle of the playfield while trying to dodge your shots. Frankenstein
actually rises up from the laboratory table extending his arms after he's
assembled. The Brides head pivots up and down, as she gets ready to meet
the man of her dreams. In Mummy Mayhem the
Mummy is revealed after his sarcophagus pushes open. The Creature is under
green plexi glass and comes up from the Lagoon during the Creature Feature
mode. Full Moon Feature includes the Wolf-man as begins to itch and gets
If you like interactive toys, horror
monsters and campy humor then Monster Bash is a pin for you. Designed by one
of the geniuses behind
George Gomez delivers a pin that is a lot of
fun to play, watch and hear. The game also includes a "Phantom Flip" feature
that will make certain shots on the playfield like "Thing Flips" in
Adams Family. The music is top notch with some modes having creepy
organ music. The speech is amusing and varied enough not to get old. The
light show and DMD animations are some of the best in pinball. The game
feels like it was done in the spirit of
and the Party Monsters and
Stiff. Speaking of Elvira...she makes an appearance in the
backglass (see below). Top to bottom Monster Bash is really entertaining with
solid flowing shots. While not the deepest pin around, its pure eye and
ear candy make it a fun pin to play.
