About Gamers Corner

Type Spaceball was a sensation at carnivals, fairs, school demonstrations, and shopping center grand openings.  But, by 1970 it was fun that only acrobats were enjoying.  Eddie knew that Spaceball would be enjoyed by a much larger population, so he developed a safe, fun, and profitable version of the game for the general public.  Spaceball was very successful and eventually evolved into Jumpshot, which was even more sussessful than Saceball.  Jumpshot went on to become a staple attraction at family fun centers, amusement parks, carnivals, campgrounds, fitness centers, and other locations where people visited to have fun!  Eddie Cole's JUmpshot is the exclusive source for the originaland patented productthat has been copied, but never equaled!
