Flippers (2), Pop bumpers (3), Horseshoe lane (1). Going through the horseshoe lane or top center rollover when lit changes a center outlane located below the flippers into a kicker that propels an otherwise drained ball upward through the flippers back onto the playfield. Balls that exit via the left or right outlanes can be nudged by the player onto unique wireforms that will route the ball to this center outlane/kicker.
Design by:
Jim Patla
Art by:
Kevin O'Connor
Notes:
One of the playfield plastics shows artist Kevin O'Connor's Jeep Cherokee drawn in chrome. According to Kevin at the 2004 Texas Pinball Festival, some of the reflections in the silver balls on the sides are of Kevin himself, who wore a beard for many years.

The game came to O'Connor as a blank whitewood and he designed the art from an idea he got from a comic by a comic who drew everything in chrome, tying in well with the pinball.
