Grew up with one in the basement and recently got another one. I usually like to play EM's but not own them. This one has unique gameplay and with the childhood memories makes it a keeper for me. My only wish is that it wasn't quite so symmetrical.

Gold Rush is one of those games that took a chance. In some ways it succeeded, other ways, not so much.

The Pros:
An interesting layout with a shallow saucer right in the middle of the flippers. Nudging on this game is paramount. Some people like bagatelles, some do not. I personally dig them quite a bit. The artwork on this game is through the roof (other than the cab)

The Cons:
It is difficult to get the ball back to the top of the PF. between the 2" flippers and the saucer in the gap, many people will not enjoy playing this table.

The Takeaway:
An interesting game with some gameplay aspects that make a unique combination within the pinball world. Ted Zale was not afraid to take chances and this game is proof of his adventurous spirit.
