Using cork to refurbish classic Skee Ball games:
Bangor Cork’s Colored Cork Rolls Help Bring Arcade Games Back to Life
Remember fun summers from years ago, days spent at the beach or boardwalk arcades, with a slice of pizza in hand while racking up prize tickets on classic games? Whatever memories from that time may come to mind, Skee Ball is a timeless amusement game that everyone remembers and enjoys. Despite the years that have gone by, Skee Ball remains a popular staple to arcades, offering companies like M&P Amusement Company the opporunity to the opportunity to bring new life to old machines.
M&P Amusement Company, one of the oldest arcade distributors and operators in the United States, gives people the chance to turn nostalgia into reality with their restored and refurbished skee ball games.
“Original skee ball games from back in the 80s and early 90s have become extremely popular in homes and bars,” said Gene Goodman from M&P Amusement Co. “Everyone wants the original classic.”
M&P travels all over the country to find antique skee ball machines. Often, one of the most common problems with an old game is the wear, tear, and discoloration on the alley – a key element of the game. M&P needed a solution to not only replace the alley, but to also find the right color to maintain the authenticity of the final product.
After searching multiple places unsuccessfully to find the answer, M&P found Bangor Cork’s colored cork roll that can be cut to length. M&P uses the Hot Salsa colored cork roll to replace the old alleys, ensuring minimal maintenance required and enduring visual appeal.
“We were able to find the right color and high quality cork we were looking for from Bangor Cork,” said Goodman. “We are very pleased and happy with the products.”To learn more about M&P Amusement Company, and to see the hundreds of products they have available, visit their website today.
