Play The Frank Zamboni Google Doodle

Google has a special worldwide logo, aka Doodle, for Frank Zamboni’s 112th birthday. The interactive Doodle allows searchers to play the Zamboni game by cleaning the ice after it is being used by children, hockey players and ice dancers.

Frank Zamboni invented the Zamboni ice resurfacer in 1949, and it’s found on virtually every ice skating rink across the world.

Here is a video of me playing the game:

This is an extremely fun Google logo, one of the few game oriented Google logos we’ve had.

    How come it isn’t interactive for me? No ‘play’ button. Doodle shows just like the logo above, and hovering over it does not change it. Is there something to press?

    There is a play button on the second ‘O’ of Google.

    What a hoot, and a wonderful tribute to Mr. Zamboni, never thought I’d get the chance to ride a Zamboni, so it was a fun wee game!!!

  • Thomas Jackson

    Does not show for me.

    If you can’t play the game, it might be because of the browser you’re using. I wasn’t able to play it in my IE, but I was able to play it when I thought to try it in Chrome.

    The Zamboni Google Doodle shows as a static logo in Internet Explorer 8. I believe the game will work using any of the following browsers: Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer 9, Safari.
