Custom Close Encounters at Free Play
« on: November 14, 2017, 08:33:38 PM »
I will be displaying a custom Close Encounters of the third kind at our vendor booth at Free Play. It is a complete restoration featuring different cabinet graphics, drop target & spinner decals, LED lighting, new Starburst playfield inserts, under cabinet orange LED strip landing lights and under backbox sides ice blue LED strip flying lights. When the game ends the landing lights come on. When a new game is started, the landing light turn off and the flying lights turn on. Also the 5 music notes from Close Encounters play at game start. Illuminated flipper and credit buttons have also been added. Come check it out.
