Nolan Kay was born in Clearfield, Utah back in 1943. He enrolled at the Utah State University in 1961, transferring to the University of Utah College of Engineering graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. During his college years, he worked at Lagoon Amusement Park and for Litton Guidance and Control Systems.
While working at the amusement park, he saw customers mainly at the midway arcade games. This of course got him to thinking and as they say the rest is history. In 1972, he and Ted Dabney started their own business. Maybe you’ve heard of it Atari?
In any respect, what you may not know is that he sold it to Warner Brothers for 28 million. Nolan Kay Bushnell also opened another business you may have heard of Chuck E. Cheese’s Pizza Time Theatre.
