Long Description:

After beaching it all day, come in off the sand, cross over the boardwalk and enter this arcade. This vintage ride is among many other rides and is at the entrance to Hollywood Arcade along the boardwalk and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The machine lifts you up, over and around, and round, in a circle. Rides are fifty cents. The machine only takes quarters in on old fashioned coin collection box, which says Giant Ride on it.

This nostalgic antique has a yellow background with polka dots in the round field, behind this is a blue border and above the name of the arcade is painted. I have seen a few of these on the boardwalk, some are original and some have been customized like this one. The seat is red and made of metal. It is the furtherest coin operated ride to the right. Have fun!
