Theatre of Magic became a permanent part of the Hassell Castle Collection in December of 1999. I acquired this machine from a local arcade that was selling it at a price that could not be beat, $950! I can tell that I am the second owner of this machine by it's pristine condition. It came with all the literature, extra slingshot plastics, stickers and promo plasticsl.
The only thing Theatre of Magic needed when I brought it home was a new Magic Trunk cover which I've already replaced and have one to spare for the future since I'm sure these won't be available forever and they tend to break easily.
Since I've had my Theatre of Magic I've done some customization to it. I've installed Gold Side Rails, legs, leg bolts and lockdown bar. Who said "The Addams Family" was the only machine to come in gold.
I've also enhanced the sounds of my Theatre of Magic by installing the Pinball Pro Subwoofer Kit. This subwoofer and built in amplifier replaces the speaker commonly found in the bottom of the cabinet. Now my Theatre of Magic rocks the house with deep bass.
The Tiger Saw now spins!!!! Tom Callahan of The Repair Connection has designed a kit that will make the Tiger Spin saw blade spin like it was meant to. Check out his website for the full details and pricing. I've added it to mine and it really brings the playfield to life. Thanks, Tom for designing such a wonderful kit!
This game is extremely challenging and I have yet to beat it. In my opinion, Theatre of Magic features some of the neatest innovations in newer pinball technology. Theatre of Magic is considered to be one of the top most earning pinball machines currently, and I can see why.
