Unique layout, fun game with really bad art and theme.
No plunger, flipper is the plunger.
Would love to retheme one.

Endless multi ball 2 3 and 4 short games great music of surf John Trudeau unique shots of travel perfect set of rules and placement for difficulty and play field multipier to 5x if you can keep it moving along the switches...found tonight a sneaky shot from third flipper past left drops thru pops finally passing thru right upper inlane amazing most difficult shot but has power of the knuckle flip enjoy

Of course the backglass is not a work of art, but finally it sticks well with the theme and with the game board.
There is much worse in the 80B system.
The rules are simple and effective, but in the long run the game becomes very tiresome,
The sounds and effects are quite amusing, with the barking of the dog.

At first glance Spring Break looks like an easy, ugly game with a very strange playfield/flipper layout, simple rules, and not much too shoot for. And that's exactly what it is.

In general I don't like the Premier games. They sure are weird and sometimes in a really cool way, but Spring Break is not one of the few that does it for me.

Hard to find game even thought there were 3,550 made. Not all that desirable, but i think there is some charm here.

Playing with the multiball "on" makes this game annoying...you're almost in constant multiball. Working for it is Better.

Shallow rules even for this era of gottliebs.

All that said, I really enjoy it. Art, while cheesy, perfectly fits the theme. It is a snapshot of the era.

One ramp to hit, that feeds to mini...and it is mini...playfield in the top right. Now they fit 4 things to hit up there is amazing. Not a game you could play for days on end, but it is a nice change of pace...

Music is also the best for these era of gottliebs.

I enjoy new pins, old pins and everything between. This 80s pin is awesome! Its fun and reminds me of the beach playing in the arcade. :-)

Like most of the Gottlieb Premier machines from this era, its quirky as quirky can be. Cheesy backglass that perfectly defines the time and a multiball per ball that should keep novice pinball players amused.

This is one of the ugliest pinball back-glass's out there.

The dip switches really change the games playability. It has an automatic plunger and it can be set up to launch 4 ball multiball on the 1'st ball of the game, instead of normal play, hitting the "1","2","3" targets to start multiball. The PF has an odd layout, no Outlane on the right, two flippers on the left, smaller PF in the top right that has only one flipper. The top right PF can be accessed by hitting the ramp on the top left.

The game dose a good job of showing you where to hit. There's two groups of three drop targets to advance the bonus.

Rules not too deep and very good for a fast game.
