carnival classic... HURRICANE!
The last of the great carnival-themed pinballs...
HURRICANE! This game was
produced in 1991 by Williams, creator of the most desirable and popular modern
pinball machines to ever exist on the planet! This game follows in a
long line of popular carnival-themed pinball games designed by the great Barry
Oursler. First there was Comet in 1984, then Cyclone in 1988, followed
by Hurricane in 1991. All of the games share the same theme and similar
artwork, but they are all quite different from one another. The previous
games came before the advent of the Dot-Matrix score display and didn't have
multi-ball. Those two items alone opened up a new world of possibilities
to take the series to the next level and it certainly shows in
Hurricane! All of the carnival themed games are constantly requested due
to their fun and colorful artwork combined with their ability to hold the
players interest with unique and interesting playfield layouts. Everyone remembers the carnival music and the voice calls of the
midway barkers enticing you to play. This game has a
lightning-fast playfield and
very addictive layout that makes you feel like you're right back at the old
amusement park or on the boardwalk, just like when you were a kid!
"DUNK THE DUMMY!", "RIDE THE COMET" You'll love all of the voices and sound effects in this game that really put you right into the carnival atmosphere. Hear the people scream as they fly around in the rollercoaster... hear the ducks quacking at the shooting gallery... hear the midway barkers enticing you to play their games of skill and chance... it's total immersion! Check out some of the carnival-themed features on the playfield such as the DOUBLE FERRIS WHEEL, the COMET and HURRICANE ROLLER-COASTER RAMPS, the JUGGLER or the DUNK-TANK! Shoot the juggler at the right time and you can spin the oversized and animated COASTER MYSTERY WHEEL in the backglass! Blast the ducks at the SHOOTING GALLERY or hit the cats at the BALL TOSS! From the crazy ramps to the banks of targets, roll-overs, pop-bumpers, tunnels and much more... this playfield has a timeless and classic layout that will keep you entertained and challenged for hours on end. Hurricane's classic and extremely family-friendly theme goes great in any home gameroom!
It's difficult to find really nice Hurricane games as most of them have badly faded cabinets and playfields in poor condition to say the least, but this Hurricane is quite the exception because it's BEAUTIFUL! The playfield on this game is in excellent original condition with no touch-ups and the original factory Diamond-Plate finish still shines like glass. The playfield artwork plastics and ramps are in great condition with only minor imperfections. The ferris wheel assembly has been fully serviced and a new drive belt was installed. The backglass translight and spinning mystery wheel are in excellent original condition. The cabinet is fantastic with only minor blemishes which have been touched-up. Brand new legs, playfield glass and coin door have been installed. This game plays lightning fast just like it did in 1991!
