Behind the scenesEdit

The manual refers to the holes near witch's hovel as the Dark Forest Abyss.

One of the trickiest puzzles on this playfield is the Endless Desert Temple Stone Wall trap. The key is to hit the ball into either side of the Dark Abyss next to the Witches' Hovel. When the ball is released, it is in perfect position to be hit into the Stone Wall trap. The Stone Wall trap opens when you hit both the Open and Sesame targets. It is timed and you must hit the ball into the temple before the wall closes. Score 250,000 points and Cedric flies off to Madam Mushka. Another tricky spot is the path to Queen Icebella's Mountain Castle. To get the ball up this path, hit the ball into the Yeti cave. After the Yeti drops the ball into the water, hold the left flipper up and let the ball hit it. The ball will travel up the left flipper lane. When it comes back down, wait until it is lust to the tip of the left flipper and whack it good. With practice, it works every time.
