Family Pinball Machines
Pinball has historically had some risque topics or themes. Games like Metallica have adult or family mode, mainly to control the foul language.
If you are considering a pinball machine for your home but want to be sure that the themes will not be too suggestive or the language too foul, check out the family friendly pinball machines that we have available above. And below are some family themed pinball machines that you should keep an eye out for even if they are not currently in stock.
Monopoly | Stern
While Monopoly the board game may have been the fuel for more family fights than any other game, the pinball machine is certainly great for the family. Few games have lasted as long as Monopoly either. The pinball machine is also so good that it has stuck around.
It’s got all the familiar aspects from the board game. It has the Electric Company, The Railroads, and you collect all the properties you can. You even get to lock your balls in the bank for your multiball.
With great sound, a full playfield, and a great theme, Monopoly by Stern is one of the best family friendly pinball machines.
Monster Bash | Chicago Gaming Company
Ranked as one of the best pinball machines, Monster Bash is a blast to play. The point of the game is to wake up the monsters from Universal Studios. You’ll know these monsters as Dracula, The Wolfman, Frankenstein and his Bride. Don’t forget about the Mummy and the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
These monsters are iconic. While they are monsters that has scared audiences for decades, today many don’t see them the same way. When we watch these older movies, they are nowhere near as scary to us as they used to be. They’ve actually become the icons of family friendly, scary movies. The pinball machine is no different. It’s one of the most fun family friendly games around.
The Munsters | Stern Pinball
Stern did an amazing job capturing the character and fun of the original Munsters show. Even down to their black and white premium version, the game is very true to the show. The best part about it is that the show, and thus the pinball machine, is very family friendly. Find Spot, go down into Grandpa’s Lab, and help Herman get to work on time in this fantastic pinball machine.
Batman ‘66 | Stern Pinball
While the new Batman films may have become very popular, nothing screams “Batman” quite as much as Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin. Batman ‘66 is a game where the whole family can help Batman fight the evildoers. Round up Catwoman, the Riddler, The Penguin, and even some less known villains to rack up big points.
Roller Coaster Tycoon | Stern Pinball
Roller Coaster Tycoon is a game where you try to fill your amusement park with as many guests as possible. Ride the many roller coasters (wireframe ramps), plunge the wishing troll, and stack your multiballs with this pinball table. This family friendly pinball machine also has a very packed playfield, so each shot is very satisfying.
Star Wars Episode I | Williams
This might be an outlier on the list, but who doesn’t like heros? Star Wars may be one of the most epic tales ever told. Episode I is unique in that it also incorporates a TV screen in the game, so you can line up your shots and hit holograms on the table. It’s a very fun game to play and is great for the family.
