    On the Jurassic World Pinball table, film dialogue from your favorite characters accompanies fierce action inspired by iconic film scenes. . Relive colossal moments as you train your Raptors, neutralize Pteranodons, feed the Mosasaurus or just barely escape the Indominus Rex. There’s even a mode that transforms the pinballs into Gyrospheres – enjoy the ride!

    The Jurassic Park Pinball table is the finest video pinball adventure this side of Isla Nublar!! Guide classic film characters through your favorite cinematic moments from the original Jurassic Park in a whole new way. Hunt Velociraptors or outrun the T. rex in the iconic Jurassic Park jeep – watch out though, objects in the mirror are closer than they appear!

    Return to Isla Nublar in Jurassic Park Pinball Mayhem where escaped dinosaurs wreaked havoc on the park. Keep them at bay while you rescue trapped workers and tackle other emergencies in your quest to return the park to its former glory. You can even play as a Stegosaurus defending yourself from a fearsome T. rex!

    No music from the films again? I'm assuming not since dialogue was mentioned, but music was not, and it's not in the video.

    Jurassic Park!! Awesome!!! And the tables look great, too.

    My only concern is the music. I mean what's the point of these tables without it? Especially the music from the 1st movie is a must-have.

    I know that they have a "streaming mode" in the game which plays royalty-free music for when you stream on twitch/etc or take video to post on youtube. So perhaps that's what they've done here. I don't know for sure, but I do know that that exists.

    WOW... really look forward to that one. As for music, and as a musician, I would hope that there is the original John Williams score represented as well, it is inevitably connected to the film experience and atmosphere.

    As for original dialog.... I nearly would take a bet that this one is in there somewhere: "Life will find a way..." LOL

    Brilliant.... except.... It's 11 days until the 20th... Goddammit...LOL

    AS much as I liked the last licensed tables, the lack of the music theme has made me not play the tables as much as I would like. It's nice that the original voices and sound effects are there but the atmosphere won't be the same without the iconic Jurassic park theme by John Williams. It has to be there.

    I’ve had a busy week so I only just watched the trailer in true detail. The tables look really good. The water FX on Jurassic World is amazing.

    I have one big question though. How is it possible that one of the best players in the game already has gameplay videos of the new tables on his youtube channel? I assume this means that he already owns them?

    This is so unfair towards other expert players. By the time they’ll have access to the tables he already knows them through and through.

    Pinball is a very competitive game. I really hope I’m wrong about all this and that there’s another explanation because otherwise, big shame on you Zen

    I really, really hope so.
    I’m almost sure it wasn’t a price in the Back To The Future tournament though and I haven’t heard of any give giveaways either.

    Here are the videos btw:

    Jurassic World: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfmfKSoXMyE&t=4s

    Jurassic Park: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSRnHpv5EhQ&t=88s

    Jurassic Park Mayhem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSRnHpv5EhQ

    Somebody's already commented on one of the videos about the release date of the tables.
    The player answered that for more info you have to visit his own personal website. lol.
    I followed the link but the website's is in French and at first glance, I couldn't find any direct info on how he obtained the tables...

    Someone just PM’d me on Steam. Now rumours are flying around that the lupsclub members already knew there was a Back To The Future tournament coming before it was even announced.

    I’m not that paranoid but I just checked the tournament end results and they are placed 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7.

    Please tell me this isn’t true Zen

    Default I agree

    Does seem strange to me that I have only ever seen them playing in official Zen Tournaments. How about allowing some of us who frequent this forum posting bug reports and posting high scores to the leaderboards have an opportunity to beta test your new tables?

    1. Rolled a star wars machine................ie played over 99 levels and rolled it back to level 1.
    2. Rolled Nintendo punch out, several times, same quarter.

    I'd have been delighted to receive this gift from Zen, but keep calm and follow this link : http://blog.zenstudios.com/press/
    where you can download the "Bootleg" file, if you too wanna see and stock these 3 videos on your own tv cumputer.

    Btw for more info... follow the lupsclub ! (LOL) (hint : you can translate the messages in your own language easily with a right clic on Chrome). If you did it and search the icone of JWP thread, you could have read how I got those videos from the Zen press website.

    Hey,
    thank you for the offering!
    Right now we have the capacity to test out the newer releases, but as FX3 had a beta testing phase, we may also have them in the future.

    @wims

    Thanks for reacting. I really appreciate it. But oh man, why didn’t you just mention that info in your video description on youtube.

    Also, if you really didn’t have any knowledge of the tournament beforehand then someone is trying blacken both you and Zen because I’ve seen time-stamped screenshots of chat windows with lupsclub members discussing the tournament before it was even announced and they looked pretty flippin’ real.

    Btw
    Sorry to the few Zen devs that I had on my Steam friendlist. I unfriended you because I don’t want to get caught up in the battle that’s been going on since you pulled FX2 from the Steam store without notice on the day FX3 came out and what followed with the coupons. A lot of Steam friends I’ve known for years got duped by this and I can sympathise with their feelings. It’s one of the reasons I have a hard time trusting you guys myself right now. I’ll think I’ll stay away from forums, etc. for a while and just try to enjoy the game.

    I hope you understand.

    Because it becomes hard for me to explain on Youtube or other websites what I've already wrote on my forum, where I waste many hours to built something with special handeling. That's why now I simply put the forum link when somebody asks me something in social network. I'm not a pro in communication.

    Yes, it's because we played so much at BTTF that we finaly went back in the future to buy an almanac with the mention of Zen tournament. If you still have this screenshots, I'm very curious to see them and destroy them before a temporal paradox takes all my team. So if you wanna talk with me by MP, it will be better than on this thread.

    Yup, we are sure that Trump wants to nuke us, with the help of Putin

    Joke appart,
    If you follow the LupsClub, you'll see that tournament scores are recorded and posted on Youtube (after tournament's end, of course).
    (You'll then see that those scores are legit).
    You'll also know that, for now, nobody inside the LupsClub get access to the tables before the release, and that we are buying our tables.
    And i don't think that Zen is leaking prized tournaments dates to any team.

    Some Twitch or Youtube guys get early access on some tables (Alien Pack or Jurassic Pack, for example) and none of them are LupsClub's members.

    I'll be honest. Before making that comment I first searched my recollection, then afterwards, went into tournaments and physically searched twenty tournaments and did not see LupsClub participating in any of them. Of course, I only saw the top 8 and did not dare scroll the page as for whatever reason that tends to freeze the game on my ps4. I assume my slow internet connection is the reason, and not as I sometimes secretly think, as a result of an ongoing collaborative effort by Trump and Putin to infiltrate the network. Not the ps4 network, that would be silly. I meant, the entire network, worldwide. I then, after a long moment of meditation and taking of my medication, searched previous zen tournaments, but I only know how to do that by searching my previously played tournaments, which was only like 4 zen tournaments and I think they were in the top 8 in two of those.

    OK, i was thinking you were talking about tables leaderboards, not "unprized tournaments" leaderboards.
    So you're surely right.
    But take a look at the tables leaderboards, in classic mode. You'll see the LupsClub.

    Not me, i'm not as good as my mates

    You can just see me in "Secrets of the Deep", 5 minutes challenge

    Of course I know who LupsClub is. I don't frequently play classic mode or participate in many tournaments, but have seen their names posted from time to time, but since you directed me towards the classic mode I did check a few tables and was impressed to see their names among the top 5 on several tables (I assume far more, I only checked several), one of which is my favorite table. So, I will be pushing them down that board momentarily. My previous response was based on the conspiracy theory MuddyWolf_Beta proposed, hypothesized rather, that suggests that the members of LupsClub unfairly receive advance copies of certain tables from Zen. I don't necessarily believe or disbelieve any of this. Don't care to be honest. Sometimes just for fun I throw rocks at wasp nests just to see what happens.

    I dont care for, Secrets of the Deep.......................................Lucky you :P

    You're very kind zKnight79. Just in case any of your club are interested in bettering it, which is easy to do. Just look at any of my scores on this table to see just how easy. I only tried to just better the previous high score and inadvertently hit a bomb that gave me an extra 900 thousand. This was achieved on ball one and I let my remaining 4 xtra balls and ball two and three drain. I have the majority of it saved on video, but I really don't care to post videos with tips for people so that later they can beat me and I must then again spend the time to regain it. I got nothing but respect for your club. Im just kind of an arrogant ass sometimes and see my tables as mine and LupsClub, without question, clearly, amazingly talented, but your overall domination of the boards is kinda borg like. I got like 5 tables for now I consider mine and will fight to keep them. You guys can have the other 65.

    Default Why doesn't add to Universal Folder ?

    Hi everyone

    It is an bug or will you create an new folder for the Jurassic Tables? This tables may be add to the Universal folder's with ET, Back To The Future and Jaws. It's seem strange feeling for me! Or will you receive special condition from your new collaboration with Universal Studios.

    In waiting of your advice, have an good day.

    The tables go into their own Jurassic folder.
