Summer 2001, family friend vacationing. More than likely visiting Cedar Pointe. A mini arcade included in the corner of our hotel's lobby. The crane game caught our attention (my buddy and I, shown above). The crane game was our shit. Of course we won. Then it gyped us. The crane pulled a "drop right in front of drop box" bullshit.
This was unacceptable.
Verified our arms and hands couldn't reach, even with anything as a prop (which usually worked for us). So we shook it. I don't even remember if we got our prize, because red alarms everywhere started going off. They had to evacuate the hotel.
All for a shit quality plush toy.
