Building a man cave? Sure, you need a stereo, a TV, some manly stuff to hang on the wall and a secret place for your porn collection, but those are all standard accouterments. What about an old-school stand-up arcade game? A mechanical pinball machine? A jukebox?
Pish. It’s all been done before. What you need for your cave, my manly friend, is this.
A Chuck E. Cheese location in Visalia, California (which is southeast of San Francisco between Fresno and Bakersfield), is looking to dump its old animatronic band (manufactured c. 1985). It hasn’t been used in a couple of years but the seller says that it works just fine even the doesn’t know how to work the thing.
The band–officially Beach Bowzer’s Band on a cabaret stage–comes with everything you need (manuals, parts, tapes) to install it in your home. Maybe you could hack it so that it plays something more interesting, too.
Keep in mind, too, that Chuck E. Cheese is getting rid of all their animatronic bands. It’s truly the end of an era.
