Capt. Fantastic is an offshoot of the Who's rock opera Tommy. It features some amazing artwork on the playfield and backglass. This art is very politically incorrect by today's standards and was to an extent when it was released as well. The artist hid many sexual scenes in the backglass causing the manufacturer to change it during production (by adding silver stars over the objectionable areas). A home model of this machine was created as well but I do not have any knowledge of the differences between that and the production version (but I do know they are different).
Scoring is only capable of handling 5 digit numbers. As such, rolling the game is not very hard to do (compared to achieving some modern wizard awards). In the 8-10 games I've ever played I was within 10K of rolling it at least twice.
In the standard way - starting at the bottom of playfield and working around clockwise.

IS THERE A STANDUP TARGET IMMEDIATELY BELOW THE BOTTOM BUMPER?
These rules apply to each ball. Nothing is carried over from one ball to the next.
A ball which goes through the middle lane will open the inlane/outlane diverter until it is used. The diverter then closes and one may use the middle lane to open it again.
Bonus is built up by ??? (Star rollovers?)
Bonus may be doubled by the ball going through both the left and right lanes.
Completing the Drop Target 5-Bank once lights extra ball at the right inlane.
Completing the Drop Target 5-Bank twice lights special at the left outlane.
Completing the Drop Target 5-Bank three times awards a special.
