OK, maybe not *quite* that hot, but you get it.
Stern Pinball released not one, not two, but three Jurassic Park pinball machines — pro, premium, and limited edition. Like the blockbuster movie, the Jurassic Park pinball machines generate heart-pounding excitement as players progress through the game. The game starts with the player being transported to Isla Nublar, an amusement park where escaped dinosaurs are running amok. The player’s mission is to rescue park staff and recapture dinosaurs from the chaotic environment unleashed by Dennis Nedry’s computer virus. As you may remember from the films, though, all dinosaurs are not created equal! Players will have to rally as they battle both raptors and the terrifying T. rex.
“Jurassic Park is a classic film featuring what everyone loves – dinosaurs! The game is designed to be easy to play, but difficult to master,” says Gary Stern, chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball Inc.
Check out the gameplay trailer below.
The high-quality machines range from $5,999 to $8,999, depending on which version you choose.
The premium ($7,599) and limited-edition ($8,999) models feature an animatronic, ball-eating, ball-throwing T. rex that interacts with the ball and the player. They also include an interactive raptor and raptor pen featuring a ball-lock mechanism guarded by a motorized gate. And the action does not let up with mosquito-in-amber pop bumpers and a metal horizontal helicopter spinner.
The pro ($5,999), premium, and limited-edition models also feature a Jungle Adventure Vehicle target in the middle of the playfield. This kinetic target registers direct hits, determines the direction players navigate on the island during gameplay, and lights T. rex modes.
All models include three full-sized flippers, four custom ramps, a spinning “Spitter” target, an in-lane up/down lock post that sets up critical playfield shots, and distinctive hand-drawn art highlighting iconic dinosaurs from the series.
