A classic arcade stall from as early as the Victorian era, Tin Can Alley is a staple of arcade and game stalls and can be found in most modern fairgrounds.
The aim of the game is to shoot the ‘tin cans’ which are placed along a table or ‘rickety fence’ at the back of the stall. Traditionally the toy rifle used to shoot these was either a cork or pellet but more modern arcades often use a laser rifle which hits a reciever on the can. Some rides even replace the gun with baseballs that are thrown at the cans. All methods have their pros and cons!
