NEWS : PINBALL WIZARD: ‘JERSEY JACK’ BUILDS, DESIGNS MACHINES IN NEW JERSEY : ABC NY CHANNEL 7

You may find yourself going to an arcade to enjoy some family fun playing pinball this summer, and it turns out that there are only very few companies who produce the machines. And one of them is in New Jersey.

“A pinball machine is a mechanical device that just makes everybody smile,” said Jack Guarnieri, of Jersey Jack Pinball.

 Guarniere, better known as Jersey Jack, has sold pinball machines for decades. But now, he also makes them.

Located in Lakewood, Jersey Jack is one of only two major companies making the machines in America. He started his company in 2011 and began taking orders for his first machine, “The Wizard of Oz,” which features all the characters from the story and is more experimental than the old-school pinball games.

“We’re taking you on a journey where you get immersed in a game,” he said. “And it’s a lot of fun.”
