The Greatest Pinball on Earth!!

I've been looking to purchase a Cirqus Voltaire for nearly 3 years. I finally found one. This game ROCKS. I totally lucked-out and got a Sample (very early production) game!

Here are some pictures of my Cirqus Voltaire machine. I will be taking more pictures eventually, probably after I shop this one out. It's filthy right now, and I don't want to show it off in that state. Unfortunately, I'm having so much fun playing it, I don't want to take it out of comission long enough to shop it out. Click the images for a larger view.

A no-flash picture of the full Cirqus Voltaire playfield. Check out that neon! The backglass on Cirqus Voltaire. They moved the DMD panel into the playfield area, and worked the speakers into the artwork of the backglass. Very neat.


This is a custom desktop background that I created for this game. Images were taken from the flyer, and from a picture that Duncan Brown posted to his website. Click the appropriate Link below to download a background for your computer.
