* NewGamePlus: This is the first Pat Lawlor game to reset the modes (door panels in this case) immediately after playing the WizardMode, allowing them to be played again on the same ball as opposed to not resetting until the next ball.

* WizardMode: "Lost In The Zone", which is reached after collecting all of the door panels. In this mode, all six balls are launched onto the playfield, and the player has 45 seconds to make as many shots as possible.

Pat Lawlor was given free rein in the game's design; the result is arguably one of the most complex pinballs ever, with more patent-pending features than any other table ever made and an impressively deep ruleset. It has been rated "Best Electronic Pinball Machine of All Time" on the Internet Pinball Machine Database. Despite this, in its initial release it didn't sell well -- the huge success of ''Pinball/TheAddamsFamily'' was [[ToughActToFollow tough to follow,]] though ''Zone'' has since been VindicatedByHistory.

Due to the runaway success of ''The Addams Family'', Pat Lawlor was given free rein ''carte blanche'' privileges in the game's design; the result is arguably one of the most complex pinballs ever, with more patent-pending features than any other table ever made and an impressively deep ruleset. It has been rated "Best Electronic Pinball Machine of All Time" on the Internet Pinball Machine Database.

** If the Powerball is on the field, then access to the Powerfield is disabled, since the Powerball isn't affected by the magna-flippers.

* DevelopersForesight: If the ball exits the Powerfield undetected and doesn't hit any switch on the playfield before draining, a new ball is fed to the autolauncher to compensate.

* UnexpectedGameplayChange: The Powerball. You get more points for make shots with it, but it is lighter than a standard pinball and is riskier to handle as a result.
