New World Record Set on Tapper!
Bill Rosa set a new world record (pending verification) on the Bally Midway classic Tapper in a 24 hour marathon session at Full Blast Arcade in North Ridgeville, OH on February 8th, 2019 with a score of 14,826,200 beating the previous mark set by Lauren Featherstone at Free Play in Arlington, TX on July 25, 2017 of 14,000,600. Rosa's run ended when the tap control jammed and the owner scored a point in the midst of trying to fix it after disconnecting the control panel and flipping it over to un-jam it. With a belief that Twin Galaxies would rule any points score by someone other than the player would invalidate the run, it was decided to stop the game there to verify the board. Congrats William Rosa!
