The new Jaws pinball machine from Stern Pinball recently arrived in Middletown, NY.

Everybody loves Jaws. I mean, even the popular Hopewell Inn in Hopewell Junction adopted a mascot resembling the iconic shark. The 1975 Steven Spielberg classic starring Roy Scheider as police chief Martin Brody, who, with the help of a marine biologist played by Richard Dreyfuss, and a professional shark hunter (played by actor Robert Shaw), hunts a man-eating great white shark that attacks beachgoers at a summer resort town. Well Stern Pinball is at it again, with an amazing new machine paying homage to the classic thriller.

We've covered some Stern Pinball releases over the years here. Back in 2016 we talked about a new Kiss pinball machine that was in the works, and a couple years back in 2022, Rush pinball arrived in the Hudson Valley. If Stern Pinball is releasing a cool new machine, you can bet that Stephen Keeler at Rock Fantasy in Middletown, NY will be aquiring it for the shop's ever growing pinball room with over 50 machines. The shop also hosts regular tournaments, and actually hosted the New York State Pinball Championships last year. The first time the championships have been held in the Hudson Valley.
