The left side of the game board features four targets that pop up and down when they are hit by the balls. There are numerous light-up games built into the table, including the Kiss flippers and the ability to spell the band name "Kiss" while you play. The pinball machine also features original music and sound effects taken directly from the band.

Quarter input functions on the Kiss Pinball

Both the Bally and Stern Kiss pinball machines feature quarter inputs on the front. As you shop for the arcade devices, look to see that the quarter input is still in working condition. The Bally machine features three quarter input holes while the Stern machine features two. If the quarter function does not work in the machine, you may find a more affordable price and can still operate the machine and activate the credits options for free pinball games.
