Nip-It

Nip-It

Bally’s Nip It will forever be remembered as the game Fonzie frequently played at Arnold’s Diner on the American television series Happy Days. The game’s main feature is the “Balligator” mechanism. It is located in the upper right-hand corner and diverts the ball to an otherwise secluded area of the playfield. The game also features a two-ball multi-ball mode.
