Pinball Wizard Gets his own Game Room

A bikini-clad girl. Her diver boyfriend. Malicious mermaids. Lurking sea creatures.  Unfathomable for a Belvedere lagoon home or undeniably fun for the master bathroom of a pinball game collector?  We say the latter.

This collectible Fathom pinball machine,  and photographs of the bathroom it inspired, will be among 250 others at the upcoming Pacific Pinball Exposition. Most games will be available to play.
