Apollo 13 is a pinball machine based on the film Apollo 13. It was designed by Joe Kaminkow and Joe Balcer, and released by Sega Pinball. It is notable for its 13-ball multiball mode, the largest of any pinball machine ever made.


After starting a game, you have a choice of "Regular" or "Novice" mode. "Regular" is the normal 3-ball arrangement. "Novice" is timed play; the player has 2 minutes when any drained balls are autoplunged, and after the 2 minutes expires, the game is over when the ball(s) on the field drains.

You can start a game in "League" mode by holding the left flipper button in while starting a game, and "Wizard" mode by holding the right flipper button in.

There are 9 Missions; after doing all of them, Master Alarm is lit at the right saucer. The Missions are:
  • Orbiter
  • CO2
  • Manual Burn
  • Rocket 2-Ball
  • Moon's Gravity
  • Under Volt
  • Life Support
  • Docking
  • Lite Extra Ball
Once the 9 missions have finished, the wizard mode Master Alarm will start. It's a 40-second frenzy where every target scores 1 million and adds 1 million to a Jackpot that is lit at the Blastoff ramp. The Jackpot does not reset after collecting it, and does not have a limit. This round can be worth many points if the player has mastered the ramp shot.

Game Features:

Multiball, 13 balls at once - the largest multiball of any pinball machine! Pop-up post between flippers prevents ball drains for the first 30 seconds of the multiball. Pop bumpers (3), Slingshots (2), Flippers (2), Ramp (1), Lanes (2), Spinner (1), Kickout Holes (2), Spot Targets (9), Orbit (1). Rotating moon grabs balls via an electromagnet and carries the ball up to the playfield glass and down into a hole where it is dropped beneath the playfield. Shaker motor inside cabinet for earthquake-like effects. Trough at top left of playfield hold eight balls

We have several shipping methods to accomodate your needs.  Here is an overview of the various options and pricing for common game room products.  For all methods, the delivery address must be accessible to an 18 wheeler freight truck.  If you need a smaller truck, please call us so we can make arrangements for you.  Please inspect the items when they are delivered and report any damage to us in the presence of the shipper.

Shipping method definitions:

Liftgate delivery (curbside delivery)

Liftgate deliveries arrive with the item(s) on a pallet.  For pinball machines the legs will be taken off and the backbox folded down.  The driver will drop the pallet to the ground with a liftgate and is not required to move it beyond that point.  Frequently, they will assist in bringing the pallet into your garage, but not always.

In-home delivery

With in-home delivery two workers will bring the item inside, anywhere on the main level of your home or business.  They are required to unpack the item(s) if you request them to.  They will not, however, do any required assembly on the machines.  If in-home delivery is selected for a pinball machine, we will typically leave it on its legs so all you have to do is flip up the backbox and plug in the machine.

Delivery and setup

If you select the Delivery and Setup option, the items will be delivered anywhere inside your home or business and any light assembly work will be done for you.  The typical delivery will include two workers, but more will be added if required.


Pinball machines and standard arcades:

Liftgate delivery - $399.00 + $300.00 each additional machine
In-home delivery - $599.00 + $400.00 each additional machine
