“He rides again!”
The despicable Black Knight returns, and rides into the future in this stunning follow up to the classic 1980 pinball machine ‘Black Knight’ designed by industry legend Steve Ritchie. The Black Knight has brought back several of the original’s iconic features and introduces a number of new ones. Returning is the enormous elevated playfield and Magna-Save features. Brand new is the guarded Drawbridge Ramp that allows players to lock three balls for one of the most challenging and tense multiball modes in pinball history.
On top of this is one of the greatest soundtracks any pinball machine has ever had, with an angelic choir encouraging you in your battle, as well as the Black Knight himself (voiced by Steve Ritchie) taunting and directly challenging the player in their battle to the finish.
Black Knight 2000 features lightning fast features and modes that truly challenge your speed and accuracy. Take on the Double Knights Challenge Multiball to score millions from the upper playfield, claim rewards from the central Lightning Wheel and if you’re truly heroic enough, play for the Knight’s Ransom to send your scores to royal proportions.
- Large Elevated Playfield: Almost half of the upper playfield is dominated by the enormous elevated playfield structure. Score hits on the bumpers, or send balls around the drawbridge for Multiball.
- W-A-R: Spell the letters in WAR for fast hurry-up rounds worth big points.
- Drawbridge Ramp and Lock: Sink the protective target bank and send three balls around the drawbridge to begin Multiball and go for the jackpot.
- Double Knight’s Challenge: Take on this two-ball challenge, where you must spell WAR as many times as possible for millions of points.
- Magna-Save: Save your ball from ending with this excellent outlane-saving magnet, controlled by the player.
- Lightning Wheel: Claim one of several different rewards by taking a spin on the game’s Lightning Wheel. Score points, hurry up, Multiball modes or more…

Our Black Knight 2000 machine has been exceptionally looked after, and is one of the best playing examples of this machine that we have ever seen. The original artwork has been protected by the original mylar. This mylar has raised slightly in places, but and the artwork still looks sharp as a result of its protection. There is some small wear to the playfield in some areas (namely the Magna-Save spot) but does not impair the game in any way. The machine also truly benefits by having a complete LED upgrade.
Some machines we sell are fully restored, where we will fit new decals, new playfields, new parts such as ramps, and even upgrade certain items, such as the sound components. Where this type of reconditioning process has been undertaken we will make it absolutely clear that this is the case and the price will reflect the amount of time taken and costs incurred in this process.
Reconditioning and Servicing – 26 Point Checklist:
Buying a pinball can be a lot like buying a car: there can be problems underneath the bonnet that you wouldn’t even know about, until they interrupt your fun!
It’s worth noting that pinball machines are complicated in their workings. There are pitfalls to buying a second hand pinball machine elsewhere, and if you don’t know what to look for, you can have an incomplete machine running at less than its potential. Furthermore, you could purchase a machine that is 20-30 years old and has a serious electrical fault.
However, every machine that comes through our doors undergoes an extensive 26-point check with our trained engineer. This service is exclusive to every pinball we sell at Home Leisure Direct. All machines undergo a full PAT test by a fully qualified engineer to eliminate any risk. We also check everything including the lighting, coils, flippers, full mechanics, electronics and everything else in between. These checks ensure that all components are rigorously tested and working.
This even includes cosmetic touch ups and a full wax clean. We complete this 26-point check to ensure your new pinball machine is in tip-top working order and ready to spend a new life with its new owner.
Pinball Table Measurements:
Please ensure you fully check that a pinball of this size will fit into your intended location.
We sell our restored, reconditioned and used products to home users; as a result, a functioning coin mechanism is not included, because the machine will be set to freeplay. However, we do offer the option to install a coin mechanism, in case you wish to set your newly purchased pinball up for that traditional feel where you can insert coins, or even charge your friends to play.
For an extra fee we will recondition the coin mechanism in your chosen pinball and test it thoroughly, leaving it in full working order. Please select from the drop-down options at the side of the screen.
This pinball machine comes with a 1 year parts warranty. All parts that are faulty will be replaced. Often we can solve any problems over the phone and supply any necessary components for the customer to fit. If necessary our specialist repairer can visit your home to inspect and repair your machine on-site, but this would be chargeable. Please call us for a call-out quotation. If parts are required which are not carried at the time these will need to be ordered for you, and will sometimes need to be imported from the States – therefore, there can be a wait for the part to arrive.
After our 1 year warranty has expired we will continue to offer you complete support for any problems you have, either over the phone or by email, and can provide a chargeable engineer call out should it be required. Whatever happens, we will be able to look after you and your pinball machine.
Pinball machines are complicated items, which don’t like being moved about, nor do they like the cold or humidity. Therefore, if you chose to move the pinball machine from where we originally installed it, or it is stored in a cold or damp location, our warranty will become null and void. We won’t be able to supply any parts for your machine free of charge if it has been accidentally damaged or you have tampered with it in any way.
Where a used/secondhand/reconditioned item is not being used in a home, but is instead being placed in a commercial location such as a bar, pub, cafe, restaurant, bowling alley, trampoline park, youth club, office, factory, or similar, we will offer a 30 day on-site service warranty should any problems occur which are not a result of any misuse or malicious damage. This warranty will cover parts and labour.
