Dad’s old Clamshell Mutoscopes at Disney World, Florida

by on Jul.15, 2006, under Jim

Back in the late 70's, my dad who reconditioned old slot machines sold at least 4 of these Clamshell Mutoscopes to Disney for their new theme park in Florida.

 Click images to enlarge Up until the late 80's these where located in the penny arcade on Main street. However, Disney turned the old penny arcade into a modern video game arcade and removed all their penny machines, including the ones pictured above. Fast forward to 2006, I now live about 40 minutes from Disney World. While at the park a few weeks ago we where caught in one of Florida's daily rain storms. When I took cover in the newly remodeled train station's second floor, to my surprise, I came across my fathers old machines. I remember playing on these in our basement along with all the other old slot machines, steam shovel games and some very old pin ball machines.
