Rockettes (Gottlieb, 1950) VP9.9 v1.0
IPD No. 1991

New VP9.9 Build of Rockettes. Gottlieb's Rockettes, designed by Harry Mabs with art by Roy Parker, was released in August 1950. 1,000 units were produced so this game is rare today. Harry Mabs designed the flipper in 1947, and remained an innovator for his entire career. Recreating several of his machines has given me an appreciation for Harry's design work that I didn't have before. He quietly invented many things we take for granted today. In Rockettes we see one of Harry's inventions in the form of the bi-directional kicker hole. It is an appropriate tribute to the stereotypical Rockettes dance line as the dancers kick in unison with one leg, then the other. Making high score takes getting the "line" to kick UP, then getting the ball in the bottom hole while it is lit.
