Monster Bash is a pinball machine produced by Williams. The game features some Universal Monsters including The Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Wolfman, Frankenstein's monster, the Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula and The Mummy.

Description[edit]

The main goal of the game is to collect the instruments of the iconic horror characters and form the Monsters of Rock band.[1] The table includes a Phantom Flip. Players can let go of the flippers with this auto-play feature and watch the game complete the shots.[2][3]

The machine has an easter egg mode called “Lyman’s Lament”. It features different music and comments of programmer Lyman Sheats while the ball is played.[4][5] The game uses the DCS Sound System.

In 2018, Chicago Gaming announced they would begin production of a Monster Bash[6] remake as part of their series of classic pinball remakes, which includes Medieval Madness[7] and Attack From Mars[8].

Digital versions[edit]

Monster Bash is no longer available as a table of The Pinball Arcade because of an expired license.
