Where Can Fascination Now Be Found

Sunday, October 14, 2001 9:37 AM
Now That Cedar Point has removed its Fascination what other parks can you experience this game at? I can't imagine that there are many left.

SFDL still has one fascination area left open... the one in Darien Square was demolished in 2000 but there is still one open.

Fascination is the old game where you would roll a rubber ball under glass to light 5 lights up in a row.

Kennywood still has Pastime, which I have fallen in love with in the past year.

And it was only a quarter to play (well at Indiana Beach aneyway) .My grandmother used to sit there and play for hours since she wasn't a coaster fan. It is a nice way to get out of the boardwalk.

Canobie Lake still has it. It is really just for old people and people who don't enjoy rides.

There are Fasciniations at the Circus Circus hotels in Reno and Nevada. There is also a Fasciniation by itself on Market St. in San Francisco. This one actually pays money if you win, the ones at Circus Circus only offer prizes. It cost 50 cents to play and you win $2.50 if you win. You can also win those weird ways and get more money(there's a travelling light, and some other bonuses for diagonals. The max you could win is $20.00) The problem is this place is full of crackheads (I am not kidding) who stay there all day and are quite good at it.

Sethman, I am neither old nor do i not enjoy rides. Fasination parlors are great places to go and just kind of take a break from standing in lines.

I belive SFWoA still has one (If I am thinking of the right game) Also, there is a whole building with just Fascination that appears to be very popular at Geneva-On-The-Lake, Ohio.

Conneaut Lake Park claims to have the last remaining Fascination game in Pa (which I'm pretty sure they're wrong). Its right next to the Skee-Ball machines with the almost square balls..

After blowing nearly 10 bucks on it during PPP, I'm pretty sure Knoebel's has Fascination. :)

I think SCBB has it, but I can't remember real clearly.

Well I played it this year at Darien lake and at Knoebels.

I have video of my brother and I playing CP's Fascination on one of the last weekends last year.  :)  I have to get it transfered to the puter so I can put it up on my site.  I need a media converter to transfer it from 8mm

Well, after this year, Conneaut's machines are the last ones. Go it? Knoebels old machines are in Wildwood at a Fascination place just south of Wild Wheels Pier on Spencer ave. Also, Olympic Arcarde has it at 24th st., just North of Morey's Pier.

I'm a little confused Agent Johnson. Are you saying Knoebels is removing their Fascination games?

Say it ain't so...

Lynch, you should have been riding Phoenix, Twister, and the Roll-O-Plane...not to mention those BUMPer cars, Power Surge, and hanging out at the trading area.  PPP is definitely an event we'll attend again!

I am not saying they are or are not. The ones in Wildwood are claimed to be from there, but I have not personally seen if they are "all" of them from Knoebels. Reguardless of the whole scenario, not to many places have Fascination. It is a great park pastime, and it is slowly leaving the classic parks. However, it still is quite popular at the Jersey Shore.
