Mike Johnson is a fan of The Goonies, and a fan of pinball machines. So naturally he wanted a Goonies themed pinball machine. So to celebrate the movie’s 30th anniversary, he made this custom made pinball machine. The only known Goonies pinball machine that exists.
Mike loaded this machine with all kinds of impressive details. From the skull-shaped plunger, to the cave, to the sound effects and music from the movie, it’s truly impressive. As a pinball fan myself I can say that it is a true work of art. He modded an existing Hollywood Heat machine and totally revamped the theme.
After it was finished it let others play it at a Goonies themed art show at the BART brew gallery in Orlando, Florida, where a custom-built Goonies arcade cabinet was also on display:
I wish I was in Mike’s area so I could play his machine. He did an amazing job.
