Noteworthy features

  • Ferris Wheels

Trivia

  • Was third in Barry Oursler's roller-coaster themed pinballs. The other two are Cyclone (1988), and Comet (1985). Hurricane integrated the "mystery wheel" found on Cyclone's backglass into the newer dot-matrix screen technology, and expanded the number of playfield toys with an additional Ferris wheel and a ball-capturing "Juggler", while at the same time, maintained a high number of ramps.
  • Most Recent Upgrade: ROM chip to L-2
