CHICAGO, IL – July 26, 2019 – Stern Pinball, Inc., a global lifestyle brand based on the iconic
and outrageously fun modern American game of pinball, announced today the availability of a
new line of pinball machines celebrating the iconic film, Jurassic Park . Jurassic Park pinball
machines will be available in Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition models.

Like the blockbuster movie, the Jurassic Park pinball experience generates heart-pounding
excitement as the player progresses through the game. As the game starts, the player is
transported to Isla Nublar, an amusement park where escaped dinosaurs are running amok!
The player’s mission is to rescue park staff and recapture dinosaurs from the chaotic
environment unleashed by Dennis Nedry’s computer virus. All dinosaurs, however, are not
created equal as players will battle Raptors and the mighty T. Rex! The game immerses players
in the fun world of battling dinosaurs in an action-packed adventure filled with twists and turns.

The Premium and Limited Edition models feature an amazing animatronic ball-eating,
ball-throwing T. Rex that interacts with the ball and the player. These models also include an
interactive Raptor and Raptor Pen featuring a ball-lock mechanism guarded by a motorized
gate. The action does not let up with unique mosquito-in-amber pop bumpers and a custom
metal horizontal helicopter spinner.

“ Jurassic Park is a classic film featuring what everyone loves - dinosaurs! The game is
designed to be easy to play, but difficult to master,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of
Stern Pinball, Inc.

The Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition models also feature a Jungle Adventure Vehicle target in
the middle of the playfield that is a spinning Newton Ball. This kinetic target registers direct hits,
determines the direction players navigate on the island during gameplay, and lights T. Rex
modes. All models include three full sized flippers, four custom ramps, a spinning “Spitter”
target, in-lane up/down lock post that sets up critical playfield shots and distinctive hand-drawn
art highlighting iconic dinosaurs from the series.

The Limited Edition model is limited to 500 units globally. The Limited Edition model includes
additional unique features such as a sequentially numbered plaque, an exclusive mirrored
backglass, exclusive custom themed cabinet artwork, a custom autographed bottom arch,
exclusive custom art blades, anti-reflection pinball glass, and a shaker motor.

Complementing the immersive theme and exciting gameplay experience, Stern Pinball’s
powerful SPIKE™ electronics hardware system enables high-definition graphics and innovative
animations on the video display. SPIKE™ reduces system complexity and energy usage
resulting in enhanced reliability and simplified servicing. The state-of-the-art electronic system
also powers a high-fidelity 3-channel audio system that is three times more powerful than audio
systems of previous generations.
