Everything about this machine overall is great..for the money at 169.99 (during Thanksgiving sale). IF ONLY BOTH OF THE FLIPPERS WORKED ALL THE TIME.....We have had this pinball machine for less than 24 hours and the right flipper doesn't always work at the moment you need to causing frustration for the whole family because the ball comes down and the flipper doesn't always work causing you to lose a turn or lose the game. If that flipper worked I would recommend it to everybody because overall it is great quality and is as close to the real $4,000+ pinball machines as I have seen so far. The flippers could be a little longer because it makes it a little more difficult - but after a while we got used to it - ever our 4 year old. I say buyer beware because at the regular price of $300+, I might not recommend it and the hassle it is to return a large item at Wal-mart that has already been assembled (so I'm finding out now, I have to return it first to get a replacement, rather than them sending me a replacement and me returning it within a certain period, which is why I am online writing this review)...that might have the same problem or another one and one that might possibly get worse, especially this item that is so popular I cannot find it in stock anywhere. This was our son's big Christmas present and while we have had a blast with it, we are still pretty darn dissapointed about the flipper and sure hope it doesn't get any worse, but for only $169 we are thinking not to return it and buy another one before we return the first one (even if I have to pay full price) to make sure the flipper works because again this is a wonderful piece that every family should have if everything works on it. It is a great size, It's not too tall or too short - we all stand while we play it and don't have any problems. I hope this review was helpful, as I didn't see many reviews when I bought this. Does anyone else have flipper problems I wonder?
