Fun Land (Gottlieb, 1968)

Fun Land

Fun Land

A classic Gottlieb 1960s Wedgehead, Fun Land is a brightly colored game with an amusement park boardwalk theme and a playfield that's equally interesting and challenging. The backglass depicts a pretty girl shooting at targets at the boardwalk arcade, and the cabinet includes brightly colored flags reminiscent of those used at carnivals.

The open playfield includes spinning targets and a rotating arrow that offers a total of 20 positions in which you can score the Special. The challenge is that as you play, the lighted arrow moves based on the ball striking the three well-placed pop-bumpers or the two duck spinners, which means you're chasing the Special often! The game also has 10 "shooting gallery" rollovers / targets. Hitting all 10 targets re-lights one of 10 numbers for the Special score.

Fun Land scored a 7.8 out of 10 on the Average Fun Rating scale at Internet Pinball Database.
