The Three Trials
Marvin's Marvellous Mechanical Museum, Detroit, USA
Previously at V&A Museum of Chidhood, Bethnal Green

The player is challenged to keep their hand pressed down during three horrifying tests. First blood stained rotating blades descend. Next scratching noises are heard, three rats dart out, the player feels a sharp flicking sensation. Lastly hot air blasts up, a gauze effect reveals a bed of flaming coals. If the player has held their nerve for all three acts, flashing signs proclaim victory.

The Three Trials a mean machine.
