Located in Channahon, IL, this “Home Use Only” Bally/Midway Journey is truly a rare find for someone, and that arcade collector will be more than eager to dole out a premium to snatch it up. From the different views of this classic game, it looks pristine. Here are the photos of the Journey arcade machine.
Here is the description about the Journey game that was posted by the seller;
Original Bally/Midway JOURNEY Arcade Game
-Was won by wife at Journey concert in Chicago in 1982.
-Set up for home use.
-Have schematics and manuals for machine
-Everything powers up except for the screen
A pretty amazing but not surprising classic game to come up for sale. My perception of Chicago and surrounding cities in Illinois is that collectors will continue to find treasures throughout the city for years to come. With so many arcade game companies with operations in Chicago, I have to believe that there are machines out there that are yet to be found.
Turns out ZF Camaro out in Maryland was the individual who won the Journey arcade game auction on ebay (Klov thread with much better photos), and it just arrived this week! Wow, almost five months later. That is a long time to wait for an any game, but when it is a Home Use Only collectible game like Journey, it is worth the wait.
