I enjoy my Ice Revue and recently I picked-up a nice playing Central Park that I am enjoying quite a bit.. I came to the conclusion that I really like this period ,they were really putting out some beauties:
World Fair
Bowling Queen
Majorettes
North Star
Kings and Queens
Buckaroo
Bank a Ball
Ice Revue
Hawaiian Isle
Central Park
Cross Town
King of Diamonds
What a great run of machines Who wouldn't want every one? For now I think I see a Cross Town in my future.

You've actually described the '63 - '68 "Upgraded Cabinet" Era of single player Gtb's........'63, (Slick Chick, Sweethearts), '67, (Sing Along), and perhaps '68 Royal Guard, 4 more great 2" flipper games fit into this mold as well of what seems to be the multi-special sequence era, (something not seen for a few years prior). Your taste in EM pinball is excellent, IMO. This feature more or less tails off again with '68 Funland.

Royal Guard is a great game. I wish it had the jeweled posts. If you can get the specials lit on it, you can go to town, but sometimes it will totally mess with you. It alternates those fan targets above the slings and it always seems the side lit is the side the ball is on.

61-67 is a brilliant time for Gottlieb games. So many classics, just a question of finding them.
As for Ice Revue - having had it a year now, I think as a player it is as good as any of the 60's games - just let down by the dude on the backglass!!
