Take yourself to the exotic pacific islands and curse the enormous gap between the flippers. Aloha is one of several polynesian themed games from the early 1960s including Paradise and Tropic Isle. This machine, in particular, has both a beautiful playfiled and backglass with multiple lovely hula dancers in bright purple, yellow and red colors. Although the concept of play is simple, build up yellow and red bonus points and collect, it can be very difficult to actually collect the point you build up, especially in a two player game. That's because the bonus will carry over to each player and ever the next game! In addition to the tricky flipper gap, there is also a large gobble hole which can be both an asset and a set back depending on if it is lit or if there are bonus points stored up. Overall, this is a great example of an early 60s pin with all the bells and lights you need. Aloha!
