Free Play 24hr outdoor Pacman @ Montreal Pinball Medics 923 Girouard

Post by Rob@PinballMedics »

I have set up an arcade cabinet outside my shop so people can play for free any time of day or night. It is the first in a collection of outdoor pinball and video games I am building out of old container imports and barn finds for events at the museum.

923 Girouard in NDG, come and play any time. If I'm here I can always use test players on the pinball machines too.

Right now it is set for Ms Pacman, and I will change the game every week.

That's amazing and it hearkens back to the Japanese tradition of games setup in front of shops.
That is cool I didn't know that, we just had this ugly cabinet that was left outdoors for years and I had an idea that would maybe be fun for the neighbourhood, and it's really popular people can't believe it's free to play.

I found someone playing it today who told me the joystick was not working well so I just replaced it with a new leaf spring joystick and it plays perfectly again now.
