The Greatest Pinball on Earth

 Industry first !  For the first time ever, Cirqus Voltaire brings the Dot-Matrix display to the playfield. Gameplay and animation are integrated as never before.

The disappearing pop bumper returns, as the BOOM! balloon. Rising from beneath the playfield, players pump it up then blast it to earn big points and an extra ball.

As always, incredible sound and music from the industry-leading DCS Sound System [DCS logo].
(Unless your sound card got shot out of a cannon, listen to some of the sounds of the Cirqus right now).
