After 40 years and 40 million record sales, Rush have staked their place as one of rock’s greatest bands of all time. But for the band, it was never about the huge global success they won, but about music, friendship, fans - and now pinball!
This new premium table from industry leaders, Stern Pinball, brings together the music of Rush, the excitement of a top class playfield and the humour of the band members, with surviving members Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee contributing exclusive custom speech for the new game.
This pinball table is like having a Rush concert right there in your home! Sixteen of the band’s most iconic songs are included, featuring Headlong Fight; Far Cry; One Little Victory; Working Man; 2112; Tom Sawyer; The Spirit of Radio; Freewill; Cygnus X-1 (Book One: The Voyage and Book Two: Hemispheres); The Big Money; Subdivisions; Limelight; Fly By Night; La Villa Strangiato; Bastille Day and Red Barchetta.
That amazing selection of songs – which you select using the left and right flipper buttons – is further enhanced by exclusive live concert footage and custom animations designed specifically for this game.
For each of its games Stern designs new and innovative features never before seen, and the Rush Premium is no different with its fantastic Rush-inspired sculptures. Clockwork Angels clock is a Neil Peart drum with a motorised minute hand and illumination at 12 positions. A custom-sculpted electromagnetic Time Machine ball lock has a motorised ramp entrance, and custom lighting effects across the sides and floor.
Among the other stunning elements are a ‘Dead End’ vertical upkicker which porepels pinballs up a wireform ramp return for non-stop action, and a secret double up-post ball lock hidden behind a bank of 3 musical instrument drop targets which, when activated, start a timed lock towards Freewill Multiball. But there’s more! Shoot at the Time Machine to charge it up and you can travel back in time to Time Machine Multiball, which will throw balls through the front or back, thoroughly testing your skills as a player.
The Rush Premium pin features a full colour translite inspired by Rush’s classic 1981 album, Moving Pictures, and which saw the band seamlessly blend progressive rock with new wave, gaining them more fans than ever before. The translite is perfectly matched by more hand-drawn artwork by the artist Michael Barnard, which flows across the cabinet.
For style and longevity, the side armour, hinges and legs are finished in hard-wearing wrinkle finish black powder coat, while the steel bottom arch ensures durability and stability.
You can also match your skills against players all over the world thanks to Stern’s Insider Connected™ gaming system, a comprehensive technology initiative which enables you to interact with the game and with a global network of players. Either scan the QR code on the bottom arch of the pin or go to the Stern Pinball website. Once you register, you will be issued with a unique QR code which can identify you at any connected Stern pinball machine anywhere in the world.
What does this mean? Well, once you log into a machine, you can track your progress, earn new game specific achievements, engage with the player community and participate in promotions and Challenge Quests. You can also find the locations of connected machines or explore pinball activities in your area for the ultimate pinball experience, wherever you may be.
Rush was comprised of some of the talented musicians in the world and it was important that this machine provided the best musical experience possible. Thus the Rush Premium is fitted with a stereo sound system equipped with a three channel amplifier and a 10-band graphic equaliser, with a separate control for backbox and cabinet speakers. The table also features a CPU mounted line-out audio connector which allows for external amplifications.
The Expression Lighting System™ sees 96 intelligent RGB LEDs for full colour spectrum control. This system is synchronised and adjustable, and is responsive to what is happening on the playfield for a truly immersive experience..
Like all Stern pinball collections, The Rush is available in three different editions. The Premium edition includes extra features and more interactive playfield elements. The Pro edition is the most affordable and accessible. And if only the best will do, the Limited Edition is the ultimate, highly exclusive and collectible version of this iconic machine.
