- TRIVIA -

Video Pinball was released in February 1979 in the USA.

Video Pinball was the world's first video attraction to simulate a pinball game, and was an instant winner. With fluorescent 'disco' 3-D play-field, challenging targets, bumpers, slingshots, rollovers and drop targets, Atari Video Pinball had it all, but without all the mechanical objects associated with classic pinball games. Even a pinball 'nudge' feature is included to give a more realistic feel to the play action. Approximately 1,500 units were produced.

A Video Pinball unit appears in the 1982 movie 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High'.
