    yeah, i remember a lot of them from memmory. just that dinosaur slingshot one gets me. surprisingly, if anybody's into emulators, mame and visual pinball are adding some games like that as we speak! i've already got chuck e cheese's match game running! i always try to get it perfect.

      As I said in my post, I did have to google the name of Cyclone.

      But if retrotyrone remembered even 1/4th of his list I'm very impressed.

          which one was cyclone?

          The one in the picture I posted. The light went around the perimeter of the base really fast and you had to press a button to stop it. Depending on where you stopped it you got a certain number of points.

          Here's a vid...

            another game i loved to play was coin circus, those clowns were worth some big time tickets, i did get a few valuable prizes, like a life-sized stuffed pikachu! apparently, his stuffing fell out after 7 years, but he was a little cutie! i sort of felt like ash! if only they had a starmy, and a graveler, i would've had misty, and brock's evolved geodude!

                Wow. Nice job remembering the names of all of those games.

                I remember a few of the ones you mentioned. I LOVED Wheel Em In. No telling how many quarters I threw into that machine.

                The other one I remember playing a lot was Cyclone (never would've remembered the name but just spent about 10 minutes on Google trying to find it).




                And then of course Skee Ball and that mini-basketball game.

                  i don't remember that one, but i do remember a game where you have to fill something up with water, and while you do that, it plays Surfin' USA. i can admit, ticket games were sort of boring on that level, you might not get something worthwhile, but when it comes to music and sound, they really outdid themselves. tap-a-tune was addicting, because even though tickets were worthless, you really wanted to see how many songs you can get before time runs out, and see if you can beat your score the next try. robo bop was a top one, because, as a treat for getting up to 10, you get some classic movie and tv themes! i didn't have a clue as to what they were when i was little, i knew a few, ghostbusters and the jetsons were 2 i could remember from the top of my head, but now that i'm older, i figured out the themes, they had star wars, he-man, mighty mouse, 2001 a space odyssey, star trek, ET, jetsons, ghostbusters. when i recognized the he-man theme, i said, "come on! they've got he-man as a theme? for real bro? where's she-ra!"

                    Skee-Ball and that token game that plays the Beach Boys' song "Good Vibrations" everytime you win tickets.

                      You actually noticed the names of those things??
                      To me, they were all just the same old crap "oh, a ticket game, yay.....". You do something less than fun, get a handful of tickets, but have to spend several hundred such tickets to get a cracker-jack toy.
