The Getaway: High Speed II Pinball Machine is manufactured by Williams, makers of some of the greatest pinball machines in history.
Released as the sequel to Steve Ritchie’s groundbreaking ‘High Speed’ machine from 1986, The Getaway: High Speed II picks up where ‘High Speed’ left off, revisiting the classic game design and literally supercharging it. Stepping up to the Getaway will reward players with easy to learn objectives that will take time to master, high octane action on the open road, an intense multiball finale and most importantly: Even more blistering speed than the original.
The goal of the game is to run the red traffic light, then get away from the armed police pursuit that results and chases you down the highway. Strap yourself in, run the red light and leave the police in the dust!
- Run the Red Light: Show the police who rules the road by running the red traffic light, and escaping from the armed pursuit to score enormous jackpot rewards.
- Gear Shifter Plunger: Unlike a traditional plunger, players launch balls using an authentic car gear shift lever.
- Build up the Revs: Shoot loops to rev your engine, then shift gears using the gear shift lever to access higher levels of rewards.
- Electromagnettically powered ‘Supercharger’: Launch the ball into this powerful engine to watch your ball accelerate to incredible speeds.
- Red Beacon Light: Large red police style beacon activates during certain modes, lighting up your entire game room.
- ‘The Getaway’ Video Mode: Speed down the highway weaving in and out of traffic to earn large point rewards.
- Hard hitting soundtrack including ZZ Top’s hit ‘La Grange’.
- Red powder coated side rails and legs
- Additional playfield mods (Donut Shack building)
- Additional backbox lighting
- Internal wall artwork
- LED upgrade
On Display in Our Showroom:
If you’d like to try out a classic pinball machine, we have a vast collection of over 15 different classic titles from various big pinball manufacturers like Bally, Williams and Data East on display in the showroom. All of these games are set up and set to free play for you to try for yourself. Even if we don’t have the exact machine you’re looking for, we can recommend other games that may play similarly.
We recommend phoning our showrooms ahead of your visit so we can give you a rundown of every machine we currently have on display to try.
We are keen pinball enthusiasts and have experience of owning and playing a wide variety of pinball games. If you are looking for high quality impartial advice it is definitely worth paying us a visit. There’s nothing like playing a few games to get a real appreciation of how good a game really is.
This ‘The Getaway: High Speed II’ machine was previously used in a public environment, and as a result does have some external scratches and wear to its cabinet (visible in our product photos). Despite this, the playfield is immaculate and each light and mechanism on the machine has been checked over, ensuring that the machine plays at 100% of its potential.
Some machines we sell are fully restored, where we will fit new decals, new playfields, new parts such as ramps, and even upgrade certain items, such as the sound components. Where this type of reconditioning process has been undertaken we will make it absolutely clear that this is the case and the price will reflect the amount of time taken and costs incurred in this process.
Reconditioning and Servicing – 26 Point Checklist:
Buying a pinball can be a lot like buying a car: there can be problems underneath the bonnet that you wouldn’t even know about, until they interrupt your fun!
It’s worth noting that pinball machines are complicated in their workings. There are pitfalls to buying a second hand pinball machine elsewhere, and if you don’t know what to look for, you can have an incomplete machine running at less than its potential. Furthermore, you could purchase a machine that is 20-30 years old and has a serious electrical fault.
However, every machine that comes through our doors undergoes an extensive 26-point check with our trained engineer. This service is exclusive to every pinball we sell at Home Leisure Direct. All machines undergo a full PAT test by a fully qualified engineer to eliminate any risk. We also check everything including the lighting, coils, flippers, full mechanics, electronics and everything else in between. These checks ensure that all components are rigorously tested and working.
This even includes cosmetic touch ups and a full wax clean. We complete this 26-point check to ensure your new pinball machine is in tip-top working order and ready to spend a new life with its new owner.
Pinball Table Measurements:
Please ensure you fully check that a pinball of this size will fit into your intended location.
We sell our restored, reconditioned and used products to home users; as a result, a functioning coin mechanism is not included, because the machine will be set to freeplay. However, we do offer the option to install a coin mechanism, in case you wish to set your newly purchased pinball up for that traditional feel where you can insert coins, or even charge your friends to play.
For an extra fee we will recondition the coin mechanism in your chosen pinball and test it thoroughly, leaving it in full working order. Please select from the drop-down options at the side of the screen.
This pinball machine comes with a 1 year parts warranty. All parts that are faulty will be replaced. Often we can solve any problems over the phone and supply any necessary components for the customer to fit. If necessary our specialist repairer can visit your home to inspect and repair your machine on-site, but this would be chargeable. Please call us for a call-out quotation. If parts are required which are not carried at the time these will need to be ordered for you, and will sometimes need to be imported from the States – therefore, there can be a wait for the part to arrive.
After our 1 year warranty has expired we will continue to offer you complete support for any problems you have, either over the phone or by email, and can provide a chargeable engineer call out should it be required. Whatever happens, we will be able to look after you and your pinball machine.
Pinball machines are complicated items, which don’t like being moved about, nor do they like the cold or humidity. Therefore, if you chose to move the pinball machine from where we originally installed it, or it is stored in a cold or damp location, our warranty will become null and void. We won’t be able to supply any parts for your machine free of charge if it has been accidentally damaged or you have tampered with it in any way.
Where a used/secondhand/reconditioned item is not being used in a home, but is instead being placed in a commercial location such as a bar, pub, cafe, restaurant, bowling alley, trampoline park, youth club, office, factory, or similar, we will offer a 30 day on-site service warranty should any problems occur which are not a result of any misuse or malicious damage. This warranty will cover parts and labour.
