Classic Game Room: FUTURE SPA pinball machine review
« on: October 14, 2012, 08:44:36 PM »
Future Spa review. www.ClassicGameRoom.com Classic Game Room reviews FUTURE SPA from Bally released in 1979, a disco fresh look at exercise and relaxation in the future! Future Spa is an amazing wide body pinball table with beautiful, well drawn and painted artwork depicting a Logan's Run style future where people jog with mustaches and bath beneath women floating in space held by dissolving ribbons. You may want to avoid the water and lift light sabers instead... Set pleasure levels to ULTRA SONIC because Future Spa is as much fun to play as it is to look at!

Interesting review. I dislike the game for the same reasons the reviewer likes the game. I think that with most of the reviews I've watched, he learns how to play the game on the day of the review. Try having a Future Spa in your line-up for more than a week or two !

I think his reviews are great and explain the rules etc quite well.

I've never even seen one in the flesh, so I can't comment on the game play, but the machine sure does look pretty!

I played this game many times in my early teens and didn't mind it at all back then.
I don't know how i would feel playing it now but if i did i suppose it would really take me back to my youth.

I play it every now and then on Pinmame for a laugh.
That's good enough for me for this one.

Wouldnt own one - but I do like the in-line drops as well as the unique lower exit area's the game has on it.

Hi Guys,

I own this game and it is AWESOME to play once you look past the retro graphics (which I love by the way!) and get onto the playfield.

It has a devious hole on the right side which, if you're good enough, you can bounce over. It has an additive set of drop-downs which multiply, then set extra ball, and specs.

It's a fun game - love it!

For me I have never played or even seen one   but as I love slow old wide bodies :lol  all from the golden pin era  it would look good in my collection   

Ive always been keen for a couple of games put it hasn't happened !!!     I also love the in line targets  and lots of bumpers   

Who knows  one day I may end up with one    thanks for posting       Howzat
