The Penny Arcade on Disneyland’s Main Street has a ‘game’ that is awesome. Man, I love this thing!
It is a cabinet with an electrical coil inside, and a large gauge at the top. There are two simple metal handles protruding from the front of the cabinet. You drop your money in and grab the handles. An electrical current flows through your body. As the current increases the needle on the large gauge moves up and up. The ‘game’ is to hold onto the handles – with ever-increasing current – until the needle reaches the top and the bell rings. If you let go, or when the bell rings, the game is ended and the current is shut off. After playing it several times in a row, your biceps start to flutter and you feel energised. It’s a great game!
What is this game called, either by trade name or generically?
Do any plans or schematics exist online?
What kind of coil does it use? Something out of a Model T Ford? Or is it from another device? Or were the coils made specifically for this machine?
