Hi all !!
After much searching with friends of my adolescence (in Durazno, my hometown, 180 km from Montevideo, where I live now) , we found these pictures of the Amusement Arcade I frequented to play pinball.
This photo was achieved thanks to the person who painted the front of the amusement arcade in 1988 .
As it is seen in the image, at that time, we used to walk or cycle there, as it is a small town and everything is quite close.
This is the current image of google earth
everything changes !!!!!
In this other Amusement Arcade I have no photos of the front, but I have of the inside
In this picture . I can identify 2 machines : the first one is the Time Line ( Gottlieb ) and the second one is the Black Night ( Williams ).
I loved the Time Line, was not difficult to play and it was great fun.
It was the first of the row, I remember exactly as seen in the photo ( November 1981)
I cannot identify the other machines in this picture, if anyone can, please, go ahead!
In the following picture shows that the last one is the Flight 2000 (Stern) .
I love it and I have it in my wish list !!.
Here is the Flight 2000.
I remember in this Arcade was the Xenon (Bally), Flash Gordon (Bally), Space invaders (Bally) and others , but I think they are not in these photos .
Maybe someone can guess from the cabinet drawings Can anyone risk guessing ?
There was one pinball, I can´t remember and I'm trying to remember with other friends, it was so easy and we were leaving late at night when they closed and the next day we returned and we continued playing with the credits of the previous day.
We loved it , because, with only a quarter, we played a lot of days !! HaHa
When I remember his name I ´m going to post it.
I think it is not in these photos perhaps because it was some time after this picture was taken ( around 83-84 )
When I came to Montevideo I used to go and play here.
It was a huge place with dozens of pinball and video games. It closed a few years ago as most places in Uruguay did. The only places where a pinball remains is in one of the "molls"
I'll be waiting for your comments and your pictures.
I hope you like the idea of this topic
