favorite... SURF 'N SAFARI!
Get ready for wet and wild fun with...
This game was produced in 1990 by Gottlieb, creator of the most popular pinball machines on the planet!
Gottlieb was known for creating non-violent, family-friendly and just plain
fun games during the 90's. They came up with titles like Cactus Jacks,
Super Mario Brothers and Surf'n Safari to cater to families. Surf'n
Safari is the epitome of what pinball should be... a great theme with fabulous
artwork and a very easy to understand, yet challenging set of playing
rules. This game was produced in limited quantity with only about 2,000
units out of the factory, making it a somewhat rare title. Everyone that
plays this game agrees that it's a true blast to play! So come join
RODNEY the ALLIGATOR in his magical water park as he takes you on a tour of
his island oasis where you can laugh and play, and more importantly... score
Listen to RODNEY the ALLIGATOR as he laughs, talks to you and clues you in on what parts of the playfield you need to visit. Shoot the ball gently to make the SKILL SHOT into the PLUNGE upkicker for a randomly awarded value. The main goal of the game is to complete the center light grid by shooting for five specific areas of the water park. Each area must be visited five times to complete the sequence toward each of five special scoring rounds. Hit the PIPELINE at the left and watch the ball get popped into the cage to return back to the flippers. Complete it and the orange target becomes worth 3 MILLION per hit for a limited time. Shoot the RAPIDS ramp repeatedly at the upper left and when you complete the sequence, the PIPELINE will become lit for a MULTI-BALL FRENZY with a JACKPOT shot! Go for the BOOMERANG and watch the spinner zoom as you collect big points on your way to the 250,000 point round! Drop the center targets five times and then you get to hunt for all of the animals on the playfield for the SPECIAL! Go for the WHIRLPOOL ramp and watch the ball spin round and round until it drops into the POP-BUMPER arena! Complete the WHIRLPOOL and you're awarded with a shot at a timed EXTRA-BALL round. There are loads of other features too, such as the SOUVENIR SHOP which is a kicking target that can award points or even an EXTRA-BALL! Visit the SNACK BAR drop-targets for a progressively advancing point value, or visit the ARCADE for big points and a shot at the SUPER SCORE! That's just the start... this playfield has an incredibly entertaining and well thought design that will keep you challenged for hours at a time. This classic and FAMILY-FRIENDLY theme goes great in any home gameroom!
A simply beautiful Surf N Safari game! Generally if you can find this title, it will have a severely worn playfield, broken ramps and plastics and a faded out cabinet. The playfield on this game is in excellent condition due to the installation of a clear mylar protective layer that was installed over most of the playfield when the game was new. The often broken Rapids and Whirlpool ramps have been replaced with new old stock original Gottlieb parts! The drop-targets, playfield posts, flipper linkages and bats are brand new too! The backglass on the game is a new old stock original Gottlieb print. The cabinet is fantastic with only minor of imperfections and some touch-ups. The chrome legs have been polished and brand new levelers were installed. The game plays lightning fast just like it did in 1991!
