    Re: Midway Games at Paradise Pier

    Ask Walt Disney. Well Sort of, He did a ticket system (A,B,C,D,E) depending on what yo....You guys know that story. That is similar to a midway game by having to pay more to do stuff but yea.

    If you are guaranteed a prize of some sort, then you might not feel this way.

    but im just happy this hasnt turned into a "hate the games" thread.

    now to set some records straight:
    -all the games are $2, except Boardwalk Bowl which is $1
    -New Haul Fishery is the game where EVERYONE will win a prize
    -Shore Shot, Cowhuega Pass and Reboundo Beach(my home for the last year) offer extra shots for $5 ((SS & RB $5 = 3 balls, Cow $5 = 8 shots))
    -the Games were built as a last minute addition to the Pier with Reboundo Beach being built last, hence why on the billboard next to Catch-A-Flave it's not listed
    -There never has been, nor will there probably be Disney prizes at the Games due to cost (why give them away for $2 when we can charge $10?)
    -these are games of skill, meaning yes, they are a tad difficult.
    --the basketballs are NOT overinflated, they're the proper size/weight and PSI, ive filled them myself.
    --the softballs DO fit in milk can from the proper angle and they can even bounce in
    --the fruit baskets at San Joaquin Volley do NOT have springs/rubber/etc in the back that cause them to bounce out. just follow the directions and it'll go in
    --the targets at Angels in the Outfield (the only game with "Disney" in it) are very light and it would be better to throw the ball as you would a dart, instead of a baseball. Accuracy > power
    --the fish at New Haul Fishery are marked with a code revealing to us the prize you win. its a 1/15 for a medium and 1/30 for a large (but you win everytime, so it shouldnt matter right?)

    lol, ok rant off now
    *Gosh* maybe I have issues but this message just seemed to justify everything I dislike about the gates of hell, I mean the Midway games at the Pier.

    How many dissapointed children do you send away in a day? Is that worth the extra 2 bucks? How can anyone who works at Disney be proud of this?

    Is it not interesting that this is the only area of the park that I felt stress and mistrust.... but again, maybe I have issues.

    we do our best to send kids who look like they cant win the tougher games away or to Fish or Angels.

    if they insist, then we cant stop them.

    the Games are a part of Store Ops, in case you didnt know.

    and i'm curious, have you ever gone up to the games, or even played and chatted with us? we're not the evil/smelly/dirty carnival folk of days past. we're upstanding Disney CMs. hell, the morning crew have been there by at least 2001
