PULASKI, WI -- New from Bay Tek Games are five models appealing to a variety of clientele. They made their formal debut at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions show in Orlando, FL.
Three are updates of the perennially popular alley bowler design. Beer Ball, aimed primarily at bars and taverns, began shipping in October. Well-suited to league play, it offers operators and location owners a variety of promotional concepts; for example, an optional printer can dispense hardcopy scores for subsequent redemption.
Fireball Fury and Alley Ooop are designed to appeal to arcade operators. Alley Ooop is a classic alley bowler with a stylish new look and a basketball theme. Beer Ball and Alley Ooop both measure 30" wide x 114" deep x 80" high, and weigh 400 lbs. Fireball Fury features a longer alley, and is embellished with chase lights and vibrant colors. It measures 135" deep x 30" wide x 79" high, weighs. 650 lbs. and is available for operation on 120/240 VAC power at 50/60 Hz.
Bay Tek also offers reinforced metal fronts to extend the service duration of alley games in boisterous environments.
Pull My Finger is an eye-catching novelty redemption game dominated by a large purple monkey that invites prospective players to pull its finger. Doing so launches a ball onto the playfield; the player's challenge is to aim the launch and time its release in order to drop the ball into one of six continually rotating targets with different ticket values. Shipments began in October.
Previewed at the IAAPA Attractions Expo in mid-November was Crank It, a novelty ticket redemption game with a small footprint that has been designed as a complement to Bay Tek's popular Big Bass Wheel. Like both versions of that game, Crank It presents the player with a series of values displayed on the perimeter of a large reel; applying just the right force to spin the reel will maximize ticket payout. It measures 30" wide x 39.25"deep x 82" high.
