MARQUEE PICTURE NEEDED FOR Xenon - Click for details on how to contribute.


This was the first "talking" pinball machine ever. It had a female robot theme and would greet the player with a seductive voice saying, "Welcome to Xenon" when the coin was put in. It would respond to bumper hits with some fairly R-rated "Oooh" and "Aaah" sound effects in the same robotic female voice. Nice graphics on the panel, fun to play.

I am fairly certain Bally had a TV Commercial done for this one when it first came out too.
