To Danny Leach
Still enjoying your site and I try to contribute in a small way
as gratitude for all the work you do and to encourage other to pump out
The article you have named Carnival Queen Stepper
You were wondering what the card is about, its setting the
zero position switch for the magic screen, I have attached a photo of the
card, not the best condition card but it is readable. A lot easier than
reading the one you have.
The article titled Dedis Fun Machines.
You were correct in thinking it was from an Australian Forum
with "baseball machines".
I brought a Cypress Gardens BG and the guy gave me a Dedis
Fun Machines BG as an extra. I asked him what it was about and he said
along the lines that when the cops came around, Cypress Gardens or Beach
Time was on their bad boy list but Dedis wasn't so it could stay.
The top LH corner logo is a reflection. The BG seems to suit
Beach Time with the F line. The replays across the bottom though have me
The article you have named Carnival Queen Coin Boxes/Doors
My Cypress Gardens still has what looks to be the same coin
box and had the armouring (now removed). as in your photo.
I can send a close up of that if you want.
Is that one from Oz?
I have also attached a photo of my Carnival Queen, just for
interest, this one has the playfield painted red. The colour actually looks
good but not as good as original. My CQ has wooden legs but the fliers of
it have steel legs. I know Cypress Gardens and Beach Time came out with
wooden legs and many photo on the web show wooden legs (like Phils Bingo
They may of been
retro fitted though.
Does anyone know when the actual change occurred?
Thanks for you site and I hope this is of interest to you.
Cheers from Oz
