Imagine my delight when I found four pinball machines tucked in the corner of their game area. If memory serves they were 75¢ a credit, but you got five balls instead of three! Indiana Jones (Williams), World Cup Soccer, Avatar, and South Park? Pretty sweet lineup!
I started going down the line, playing each machine, and a few of the kids came over to watch. I let them each play a ball (probably their first game of pinball!) and then they took off to keep bowling. When I got to South Park, I was very surprised to see this:
Somehow, the machine had a Harley Davidson dot matrix display! All the sounds were still South Park, but absolutely nothing corresponded to the animations and points that were being scored. It was pretty surreal!
Like, you'd hit a shot that was supposed to start multiball, but instead it would just give you points. It was pretty weird - a sort of pinball mashup. It would be cool to do this with different machines and see what kind of combinations you could get. Anyway, I was very proud of the fact that I was able to start multiball (somehow!) and that I also earned a replay before my game was over.
This was the only weird thing about these machines. Everything else played great! So if you ever find yourself in the Presidio, definitely swing by and play a few games!
