Old Fascination Game
#11
It was a pretty fun game. I had an aunt that would play it all day.

I think it had the best air-conditioning in the whole park. The games were fast and the prizes were pretty good.

Somebody asked me how Fascination worked. A couple of us posted this link before, but we forgot to explain that this is exactly the same as Lagoon's old Fascination. The balls are even the same color.



There was one winner per game. The more people who played a game, the higher the number of prize center points the winner got. You got double points during scheduled 'happy hours'. The barkers would change the game rules up sometimes, but normally you needed to get 5 in a row to win. The yellow and red rows gave higher payouts in the normal game. Everybody used to cash in points at the end of the day and the prize center lines took FOREVER.

To further clarify/simply, Luke told us Fascination was basically a variation of BINGO. One of my grandmothers would go play BINGO with her girlfriend in Michigan pretty much every weekend (even on Thanksgiving...which caused some family drama...ah, the Holidays and Family...LOL!).

It does look kinda fun. Do you think one reason the game was removed could've been the fact that it was hidden from view in a building? I never even went in there.

It was a casino-like experience for older people. I went and played as a kid, but I usually only ever saw one other kid in there at the most. The decent selection of medium and higher priced items available from the prize center were within reach of consistent Fascination players. The people who it was targeted at knew it was there. I think they took it out as part of a shift away from catering to grandparents.

One of the prizes was a Chevy Sprint! I always thought when I saw a Sprint driving down the road, "I wonder if they won that playing Fascination?"
