Re: Ice Hockey game at Elephant House

Postby pennymachines » Sat Jul 18, 2015 11:00 am

After a little more research, I've concluded that Rock-Ola didn't make Ice Hockeys. This seems to be a myth perpetuated in the UK, possibly because a Seeburg game ended up with Rock-Ola pinball legs. Anyway, I've amended my earlier post, till someone proves me wrong. Also, looking through the Arena I see a plain cabinet example (Lot 137, Coventry sale, 2010) which was attributed to Seeburg:

Apart from the cabinet detailing, the game design is identical:

Chicago Coin developed the concept further than any other manufacturer.
They made Slap-Shot in 1950:

and Criss Cross Hockey in 1958, with one of the manikins controlled by the machine:

They updated Goalee in 1961 into Pro Hockey:

and produced the 10 manikin Hockey Champ in 1968:

Well thank you all for your comments I know the game is a bit naff. But I've been a ice hockey fan for many years and coached a lot of street hockey back in the day so anything ice hockey related I'm always interested.

These machines take good money in an arcade
And are very reliable
The public love them
Too,,I know were there is one with the art work on the top
But the ply bottom is rotted
It's in a mates warehouse and been sitting there for
Ages ,I think he wants about 500 for it
It also has no legs
I would go and get some pictures
But I am in bother at moment as I have snapped my archiles tendon :cry: :cry: :cry:
And in plaster for next 3 to 4 months

Thanks for the info and get well soon and if I'm not offered a machine that is complete with very little work to be done, I'll keep that one in mind, but reading the other posts it sounds a bit dear. But if I don't get one it might be worth doing the work.

Best regards,

Just noticed that Mutoscope also made a version of the Ice Hockey in the 1930s. And looks like it's almost exactly the same as the Seeburg down to the figures around the playfield and sticks routered into the outer case! The 1957 Munves catalog list both makers under the same photo for $75, I think it is the Seeburg, as it appears to have the squared basic legs, while the Muto advert shows early curved top pinball style legs.

As far as I can judge from the single exterior image, it looks good and original to me. If you do buy it, I'd appreciate a scan or close-up of the ice hockey player graphics on the corners.
Good luck! :cool:

PM, forgot to mention earlier but the 1950 date you posted for the Chicago Coin Slap Shot is way off. It's very late 60's or early 70's. We had one and it used quite modern parts and I figured it had to be early 70's. Just quickly looking around I see dates of 1968 and 1969 plus into the 70's listed. This great site for flyers says 1972 http://www.pinball-gallery.com/recherch ... AGO+-+COIN

I got that date for the Slap-Shot from The International Arcade Museum, but I guess I only had to look at it to see it's later. 1972 sounds more plausible.
