Wizard's World Arcade opened in the summer of 1973. This pic was taken between 1976 & 1979. The arcade added the space of the Skillo in 1980 & remained open through the summer of 2001. The site is now occupied by Serena Restaurant in Pier Village, Long Branch, NJ.

Here are a couple of pin pics a year or two before closing. Still needed several ash trays in 1999.

The Armstrong vinyl asbestos floor tiles were installed in 1975. A lot of the wear came from Gottlieb electro mechanical pins. Many proto types were tested right there in the late 70s.

Palisades Amusement Park in Northern New Jersey closed in 1971. Here is a great pic of the B&M Arcade. You can see plenty of 5cent/5ball pins in the back center section. Use to scour my house for 5 pennies & walked to the park to play at least 1 game.

Worked as a mechanic at Sportland Arcade, while in High School, the last 4 years that Palisades was open (1968-71). Plenty of great em pins!
