Full of wonderful old memories. That horse racing game takes me back years. Been on it many times but never come close to winning.

Cool photos. I once won one of those horse racing games. A lot of fun to play!

Daisy said...

Love the photo of the bumper cars! Do they still call them that? Brought back memories of Coney Island, Asbury Park, Olympic Park.

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. How exactly does "shoot the freak" work? I have never been to Coney Island but I hear it is a dump nowadays. What was your take?

Have not been to the fair in years. I really need to get back. I really like the bumper car shot.

These pictures should have a theme music of loud rock'n'roll and the hustle and bustle of crowds!

Barbara said...

It's mostly about taking a chance and moving fast. There will always be people willing to do both. Great shots, as always!

thanks everyone!
1, 3, 4 and 6 are London, the rest are Coney Island.
Daisy, we still call them bumper cars.
Gary - I loved it! it poured with rain, a real torrent, so all the rides were stopped, it was wild. Kind of a dump, but I liked that
:-)

It's funny but the carnival and fair games are the same all over the world. Great pictures. Nice Theme Thursday.
