Puerto Rico is in the Caribbean, not Central America.
We didn't have Toys'R'Us growing up. We could only get toys from department stores that no longer exist: Barkers, The New York Store, Woolworths... I guess they didn't bring that game to use on the island.
I didn't know that Steeplechase was based on an arcade game either. That's cool. That from the time Atari adapted arcade game gameplay with no licensing.
