SEARCH TERM SAYREVILLE, NJ -- New from Coast To Coast Entertainment is Twilight, an ultramodern crane designed to broaden operator opportunities in today's space-constrained locations. It measures only 28" wide, so it is easy to intermix with larger equipment. The height is comparable with contemporary wide-front merchandising games, and the depth makes it easy to align the fronts when banking games. Twilight is finished in an eye-catching blue and white style.

"We wanted to offer our customers a crane that works with all of the merchandisers that tend to be a bit wider than a normal game," said Coast To Coast's Jim Chapman. "We also noticed that the majority of merchandisers are white, so we developed our new color scheme with that in mind."

Operators are sometimes challenged for space in their locations, so Coast to Coast built Twilight to work in conjunction with the larger games, Chapman explained. "Now they can add our 28" crane much more easily alongside their merchandisers. Twilight is still the same depth, so the operator does not really give up much space at all, and still receives the benefits of a crane."

The new Twilight crane is available for immediate shipping. Information, including directions to local distributors, may be had by calling Chaps at (800) 224-1717, ext. 726, or emailing him at jimmychaps@aol.com.

Coast To Coast Entertainment LLC markets cranes, redemption games and prizes for them. The company was founded in 1999 by Gary Balaban and John Maurer, who have been business partners in arcade and route operations since 1985. Coast To Coast also offers the Stage 2 controller board for amusement machines of all types, to add remote monitoring and data delivery to smartphones or computers.
