Classic Game Room reviews Gottlieb's 2001 from 1971, a pinball machine from the past depicting the future in the past!! While this 70's electro mechanical pinball machine has no relation to the classic film, 2001 A Space Odyssey, the inspiration is clearly there. Girls in spandex flying through "space", colors, stars and a dude surfing on a triangle, it's Gottlieb's 2001! This pinball video review shows 2001 the pinball machine on video with gameplay from Gottlieb's 2001 at PAPA World Headquarters in Pittsburgh. Look at the backglass (2001 back glass), bumpers, flippers and drop targets. It's Gottlieb's 2001 pinball machine at the arcades!
