The Original Arcade Classic

Roaring Creek Arcade
Knoebels Amusement Resort - Elysburg, PA
They have a lot of different Skee Ball lanes at Knoebels, but the vintage ones in the Roaring Creek Arcade are my favorite.  You have to pull down the lever after inserting your quarter for the balls to load in the chamber.

A Little Spark of Madness...

Robin Williams
1951 - 2014
The world lost a very special spark of madness today.  Even when tortured by sadness, this man brought smiles and laughter to the hearts of millions.  You will never be forgotten and will always be missed.  Farewell, my hero...
