    Picked one up today. Looks like a relatively low run and cool layout. Not much info online, so wondered if anyone had more information or opinions on it. Thanks!

    It looks like Polo and Mini Cycle have the same playfield layout and were manufactured the same month. The two player Mini Cycle has a lower production. I played a Mini Cycle on location in the early 1970's. I like the playfield design. Either one is a nice game to own because the playfield layout is identical.

    Huh never seen either of those; nice pick up.

    I just sold my Mini Cycle. It was an ok game.

    I liked ripping the 5 rollovers at once for the 500 points. I found I never really went for the vari-target because it would take 2 shots to get it up to 500 or 1000, and then you still have to pray for a saucer shot or lit side drain. So I would rather just collect 500 with the rollovers with the right flipper. Not much to do with the left flipper, except maybe try for the 500 pt return to the shooter lane by rebounding off the lower pop. I was never able to do that more than a couple times though. Right outlane was *brutal*; so wide and all wood (no rubber) leaves you little chance to save it. Challenging game though.

    I have seen lots more Mini Cycle pins
    than Polo (only seen/played one of them).

    Popular layout. Was still being used in 1972. Space orbit.
