We are fortunate to have a beautiful example of one of the classiest modern pinball machines ever made. Theatre of Magic has players exploring the theatre, full of illusions, tricks, and wonderfully creative mechanisms that will dazzle you game after game. The shots are forgiving and flow well, making ToM a favorite among beginning and casual pinball players. This doesn’t mean it’s easy!

The fast way to some big points is through the left orbit shot. Every time you complete this shot, you’ll earn one letter in the word T-H-E-A-T-R-E. Once complete, the magic trunk will rotate, revealing a hole that when shot, scores the Theatre Jackpot! Theatre of Magic has plenty of modes and variety to challenge players of all skill levels.

Theatre of Magic pinball machineQuick Tips:

  • Spam the left orbit shot to quickly earn letters in T-H-E-A-T-R-E. The ball will return safely to your right flipper after each successful shot so you can do it over and over again.
  • Avoid the magic trunk until you absolutely need to shoot it to progress. The trunk has a habit of sending balls straight down the middle, so aim for the ramps and orbits instead.
  • Shoot ramps to earn letters in M-A-G-I-C. Once you spell M-A-G-I-C, the locks will be lit at either loop shot around the trunk.  Lock 2 balls and the trunk will rotate, revealing a bullseye target.  Shoot the bullseye with your 3rd ball…and watch the magic!
  • If you lose a ball to the outlanes, don’t despair! A magic magnet may automatically activate and save your ball before it drains!
