Elton’s derby race games are a midway classic, but on quiet days at a park it can be frustrating waiting for other players. No such problem with Crazy Fruits, which requires just three players for a full race, or can be played by a single player against the machine.
The coin-operated game is also operator free. Players roll the ball to make their fruit – Berry, Nana or Pip – move. Red holes score 3, blue 2 and yellow 1. A cheeky soundtrack adds to the fun, provided in-house by an Elton employee.
The unit occupies a 3-square-metre footprint and dispenses redemption tickets to the winners. Payouts and the speed of the pear character that single players race against are fully adjustable by the operator.
