Published: February 9, 2008 at 9:20 AMI normally play the quarter pitch, whack-a-mole, & basketball. Being 6'4" helps win me big prizes in the basketball games. And I usually can take the 5-7 year olds at the whack-a-mole game....LOL!

Published: February 9, 2008 at 11:28 AMI never play carny games. They are a ripoff, even if you win, the value of the prize is less than the money spent to win the item.
Published: February 9, 2008 at 3:32 PMEven though I voted No, I actually only ever play them when there is absolutely nothing else to do and I have a little more money to blow.
Published: February 9, 2008 at 9:51 PMMy husband won something on the first try for me at the California Adventure Paradise Pier. That is a good place for a few games the way they have them. I think to have more is dumb and needless at Disney. I don't play them anywhere really that was the only time. There is more to do and it is cheaper to buy something better quality in the stores at an Amusement park.
Published: February 10, 2008 at 1:15 PMI love them but my wife has all but banned me from playing them.
We actually need to find a Childrems hospital locally that we can donate them too as our spare room is slowly being overrun by them.
FYI, I don't play them for the prizes, I play them to make syself look masculine for the wife, lol.
On a visit to Seaworld just before Christmas year we played the ringtoss game and my wife actually won. She ended up walking around with a 5ft+ Shamu whci drew a lot of attention.
I did wonder why there were a lack of Carny games at Disney, thanks for the info and why there aren't any, but I did notice a few at Disneys BoardWalk.
If anyone knows of any local Kids Hospitals please send me an email with an addy or phone number, I am in Orlando!
