Jurassic Park Pinball Machine Released by Stern

Stern Pinball Jurassic Park Pinball Machine

Stern Pinball has today announced the release of its new Jurassic Park Pinball Machine

The original Jurassic Park pinball was launched in 1993 and was considered by many to be one of the greatest Data East titles ever produced. Jurassic Park pinball was fully loaded and came factory equipped with a topper, shaker motor, 3 scoops and several innovative features, a “taser gun” shooter featured a “Smart Missile” which was a homage to the 1981 arcade hit Defender. A large motorised t-rex head not only looked around as you played, but could eat and swallow the ball, only for it to appear elsewhere on the playfield!

Following the buyout of Data East by Sega and marking the release of the Jurassic Park sequel, in 1997, Sega launched their Jurassic Park: The Lost World pin, however sales of the Sega machine were said to be significantly lower than the original and in 1999 Sega Pinball sold out to Gary Stern.

Full Colour, HD Monitor & Animatronic T-Rex

Fast forward 20 years and Stern’s new Jurassic Park pinball machine, the third machine to be based on the 1993 film, boasts full colour, HD monitor, although it doesn’t seem to display movie scenes but custom graphics instead, and an animatronic T-Rex that regurgitates pinballs in the Premium and LE versions.

Jurassic Park – Game Trailer

Heart Pounding Excitement

Like the blockbuster movie, the Jurassic Park pinball experience generates heart pounding excitement as the player progresses through the game. As the game starts, the player is 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. All dinosaurs, however, are not created equal as players will battle Raptors and the mighty T. Rex! The game immerses players in the fun world of battling dinosaurs in an action-packed adventure filled with twists and turns.

Premium & LE Jurassic Park Pinball

The Premium and Limited Edition models feature an amazing animatronic ball-eating, ball-throwing T. Rex that interacts with the ball and the player. These models also include an interactive Raptor and Raptor Pen featuring a ball-lock mechanism guarded by a motorized gate. The action does not let up with unique mosquito-in-amber pop bumpers and a custom metal horizontal helicopter spinner.
“Jurassic Park is a classic film featuring what everyone loves­­­­­ – dinosaurs! The game is designed to be easy to play, but difficult to master,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc.

Jungle Adventure Vehicle Target

The Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition models also feature a Jungle Adventure Vehicle target in the middle of the playfield that is a spinning Newton Ball. 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, in-lane up/down lock post that sets up critical playfield shots and distinctive hand-drawn art highlighting iconic dinosaurs from the series.
