Sega gets ready to exhibit an epic line up of games at EAG 2017!
With a strong line-up of tried and tested games the company will show thirteen new games, as well as nine established hit games. Sega will have products in every major product category to show at EAG International expo.
Sega’s Justin Burke says “For EAG 2017 we have a brand new stand layout, designed to be inviting and welcoming to our guests. It will be more of an experience than ‘just another booth’; we’ve simplified the layout to make navigating it easier, featuring special areas for Daytona, hit skill wall games, video, novelty and dedicated features for Sega Total Solutions and Sega Prize International. We want people to enjoy the journey through it”.
Sega had a fantastic reception to the global launch of Daytona Championship USA at IAAPA. Visitors to Sega’s stand 550 at EAG will be able to experience this legendary title, in a fantastic 8 player set up allowing them to enjoy all the new features, tracks, cars, as well as the original classic track that has been remastered for the 21st century.
A solid feature of the Sega EAG booth over the past years has been the ever popular ‘Skill Wall’ that is now synonymous with every great FEC location, developed and made popular by ICE and SEGA. This year will be no exception with a new addition from ICE in the form or Bean Bag Toss. This next carnival game in ICE’s success story following games such as Milk Jug Toss and Down the Clown is a hit waiting to happen.
Sega will also be launching its own carnival themed game “Hoopla”, designed with the family player in mind it strikes a chord with childhood memories of fun at the fair. This simple game sees players get as many hoops on pegs in a set time.
A new video redemption game being launched is Fly O’clock; this compelling two player video redemption game has unique one-touch game mechanics and features a 55” vertical monitor. This clever and energetic game electrifies the competition! Time flies when you’re having fun!
Burke concluded “We are on fire right now with our product range! With continued business confidence in the UK and abroad on the back of a great season this year the desire to invest in quality product has increased and we know we have the best product to cater for that. The impressive success EAG in the past has earned it a reputation as the ‘must be at’ trade show event of the year, for both national and international coin-op amusements industry. So see you at EAG stand 550!”

They are available in both static and mobile models.
Also on display and fully operational will be a mobile DigiWall, the interactive climbing wall which offers a variety of computer based climbing games and challenges for participants.
Additionally, Innovative Leisure will be promoting its range of high ropes courses and junior ropes courses, which are proving extremely popular in a range of venues around the UK and Europe, plus the Water Wars water balloon game, the Downpour Derby water-based attraction and its Zip Line attractions.
Commenting on his company’s participation in the show, Manging Director Phil Pickersgill said: “We have been a supporter of VAE each year since its inauguration in 2015 and have enjoyed success at each event to date. The show provides the chance to meet with existing customers and many potential new ones and having actual products on display always ensures we attract a lot of interest. We are again looking forward to VAE 2017 and the opportunities I am sure it will provide.”
The Innovative Leisure team will be welcoming visitors to stand 1170 in the VAE section of the show.
