Goldfish racing. No kidding. In some parts of this country youll find a race course consisting of 12 long transparent tubes filled with water. The goldfish are separated from plastic model “sharks” by a thin wall, but at the starting signal the dividing barrier is let down. Players sitting at a counter operate levers which control the movements of particular sharks. As the sharks chase the spooked goldfish across the finish line, a photoelectric cell records the undisputed winner, causing its number to flash on the scoreboard.
