Surf Side - 1967
A bit dirty to start with
Melamine + alcohol cleans it up nicely
Quite an attractive machine. Fun as 1-player but SUPERB as 2-player... you can steal the multipliers.
New roto decals (thanks to Lee of Pinball Rescue!). Also every lamp socket replaced... backbox too. Nice and bright for decades to come. *whew*
Someone left an anonymous, appropriately-themed token of appreciation...
*GASP* what madness is this?!??!
Aha! Cabaret lighting! (colors since adjusted to the traditional red/yellow)
Rumor has it that Gottlieb stopped installing these because operators weren't replacing the bulbs. Too time consuming? Bah! Every one of mine gets 'em back!
Tired of those boring cards which look like laundromat instructions? Me too. A friend made a nice replacement.
Gotta love the matching font and original style.
Alas, this game is over...
Surf Side is an excellent looking and playing game with wildcard opportunity for a free ball and some seriously crazy last-minute turnabouts in 2-player mode. Wonderful flow between upper and lower areas. Constant motion.
It's a keeper. Grab one if you can...
