TRIVIA

4 Player Bowling Alley was released in April 1979.

Also released as a Cocktail Table model: "4 Player Bowling Alley [Cocktail Table model]".

One of Midway's myriad bowling games, this was the first that featured the popular 'Flash' variation with its timing-based scoring scheme. To support this, an external display was used to highlight the appropriate section of the score scheme.
