Pan scores highly at IAAPA with new shooting gallery

repair Shop, Pan Amusements new themed electronic shooting gallery, was an instant hit at IAAPA which delighted Managing Director Paul Whittaker. "Remarkably the gallery, which made up part of our stand, was sold within an hour of the show opening and we also received a number of other firm commitments."Not only a new theme, Repair Shop is another milestone in market leader Pans commitment to constantly improve both the movement and electronic control of its galleries. "Although our galleries are a traditional amusement we have to be aware of the high standards of the latest characterisation and animation," says Paul Whittaker. "After all we invented this kind of attraction so we have to set the benchmark." The new gallery features multi-action elements on all targets which were really appreciated by potential customers.All galleries in both standard and bespoke themes have an all-age and international appeal. Pan, making its 15th consecutive appearance at the show,

noticed that this year there were far more visitors from South America, particularly Brazil, Chile and Columbia. India and China also offer huge potential for the company. The Sideshow midway game which was mainly promoted on the SEGA stand continues its phenomenal success and has a new bonus feature to increase its attraction. SEGA now has a worldwide distribution agreement with Pan for Sideshow and both companies are looking forward to large increases in sales for the game which appeals to both theme parks and FECs."Our presence at this show continues to excite and surprise us and never fails to deliver business," adds Paul Whittaker.For further information contact Pan Amusements on +44(0)161 652 8092.

New amusements fire Pan expansion

The world's leading manufacturer of electronic shooting galleries, Pan Amusements, had an extremely successful show at London's EAG 2012. Managing Director Paul Whittaker comments, "I think it demonstrates that our recent developments in mini and midi sized shooting galleries and a new midway game, in response to worldwide trading conditions, is certainly paying off."

Pan took the unusual step not to display any of its trademark larger themed or bespoke galleries but instead focused on Sideshow - a 3-gun gallery, Professor Coggins - a 4-gun gallery and Clownin' Around - a 2 player water game. Clownin Around was also promoted on the SEGA and Crown stands - another indication of the popularity and potential of this new amusement."

Because of our reputation we still received many enquiries for our larger galleries including confirmation of the sale of an 8-gun Repair Shop which although ordered by a Turkish company is due for location in Iraq. Even so the more economically priced galleries were those that caught the eye. There is no doubt that operators are looking for versatile amusements which take up less space with a realistic outlay. Shorter payback times are also well in demand," says Paul Whittaker."

Our expansion both in the type of location served and the range of products we offer means that we have been able to build sales in times of general economic difficulty" he adds.

First ever single player shooting gallery from Pan Amusements

The worlds leading manufacturer of electronic shooting galleries, Pan Amusements, has launched its first ever single player shooting gallery.

Recently Pan has had phenomenal success with new compact 3 and 4-player galleries which appeal to amusement arcades, FECs and theme parks that are looking for economically priced attractions. One theme, Sideshow, is particularly popular and the new single gallery boasts the same theme and the same wide appeal.

Paul Whittaker, Managing Director of Pan comments, "Following the success of our 3 and 4-player galleries there is huge interest in a single player. Its a sign of the times but amazing that we have never done it before. One thing that operators can be sure of is that it is made to Pans high standards of design, electronic operation and play value."

The Sideshow single player packs nine exciting targets into a small area including spinning plates, clowns bowtie, stars, spirals and ducks. All targets have sound effects and are boosted by background music and an encourage to play hit the bullseye voice."

Our large trademark galleries which operate in venues worldwide are still very popular but we have to respond to market conditions which remain uncertain for the leisure industry" adds Paul Whittaker.

Pans persistence rewarded at IAAPA

Innovation in manufacture and new product development over the last twelve months were justly rewarded for Pan Amusements at IAAPA 2011, with several firm orders across its whole range.

Paul Whittaker, Managing Director of the world-leading electronic shooting gallery manufacturer commented, "Operators were delighted with the new Professor Coggins 4-gun mini gallery with 14 interactive targets and priced under £20,000. Clownin Around, an exciting competitive water game for two players, delivered all the thrills and spills the name suggests and created considerable interest."

Launched at last years exhibition, F.Aulty Repair Shop, the latest of Pans themed galleries continues to build its reputation as the new shooting star. "This gallery was the first to benefit from newly developed animation techniques and increased characterisation which has now been introduced into all our galleries," adds Paul Whittaker.

The long established Pirates themed gallery proved popular with South American visitors with two orders from Brazil and one from Colombia. Also at the exhibition a 15-gun gallery was confirmed by Scheels for another of its expanding group of all-sports superstores. Pan has now made five individually designed galleries for this leading USA retailer

Despite the current economic conditions, real opportunities have arisen for Pan. "We have seen the need to offer products that cover every sector of the markets in which we operate "theme parks, FECs, retail, food or general leisure outlets - at realistic price points which deliver rapid payback times," says Paul Whittaker. "However one thing that will always remain the same is Pans reputation for reliability and exceptional play value."
