Capital Punishment debate coming to an arcade near you

Just for yuks, teach your kids about the death penalty during your next trip to the arcade!

For a mere 25 cents, you can get strapped into a pretend electric chair and “experience” what it’s like to get a small current zapped through your body. This “Hot Seat” amusement ride was inside an arcade at Olde Town, kind of a cheap man’s Disney about 10 miles outside of the Magic Kingdom.

In case you are curious, there was no lethal injection game anywhere in sight.

This make-believe Death Row location is perfect if you want your last meal to be cotton candy and fried dough (with an overdose of confectionery sugar, of course).

If the manufacturer were smart, they’d skip the amusement park market and go for the slam dunk at every fraternity house in America.

(CURATOR’S NOTE: For sentimental traditionalists, there is also a rustic wooden electric chair arcade game.)
