Ball Bowlers
When games were not hand held and the sounds were not digitally produced.

Today’s kids have literally thousands of games at their fingertips. But no matter what game they chose, the format is always the same. Digitally produced images, phoney sounds and no human interaction.

But there was a time when playing a game really meant PLAYING. You used real balls, saw live action and enjoyed real sounds as you played the game. Antique Ball Bowlers were one of the most popular games of the era from the 1950’s through the 1990’s.

A Brief History of
Ball Bowlers

For Your Reading Enjoyment

Remember the 50’s? Malt shops, a new food craze called Pizza and everyone went bowling.

Bowling was the great American pass time. It was during this bowling rage that United invented coin operated Ball Bowling machines. These machines were solidly made with formica lanes and were anywhere from thirteen to thirty-two feet long.

Other companies like Chicago Coin and Bally quickly followed suite and soon almost every corner bar and arcade had their own Ball Bowling machine.
