I'm just happy that Hercules is no longer the bottom-rated game. It's a very unique aesthetic experience, and you can't go in to it with the expectations of a regular pinball machine. I love the way the ball lolls around the playfield as though in slow motion.

Thunderbirds on the other hands doesn't have that unique experience. It tries to be a regular pinball machine.

There is one on location here in Fargo in case anyone needed another reason not to come here.

Dammit Kim LOL j/k

We have Thunderbirds, Cosmic Carnival, and Full Throttle on location at the same place in case anyone is trying to fill out their Pinball oddities bingo card.

In all seriousness though, Thunderbirds has been extremely reliable over the years. The build quality was pretty solid for Homepin’s first game.

Games tend to be more reliable when they barely get played.

I'd play one in a heartbeat. I love the show. It might suck, but it's still playing pinball.
