A powerful toy - the Atari Jaguar

Unbelievable, but true: unmodified Jaguars were used to build 'kiddie rides'. In these machines the company 'Carousel International' used the Jaguar to operate as the main controlling unit.

Two rides, 'Speedster II' and 'SkyCopter II', have been published but the third one, 'SpaceGuy', was never released. All of the rides were programmed by Mario Perdue (who writes himself responsible for 'Breakout 2000'). The rides are no longer manufactured, but can still be found near supermarkets and some Chuck E. Cheese pizza parlors.
