Mountain Dew Opens "Pinball Machine Skatepark" (New Zealand)
"There have been some pretty outrageous skate parks built over the last decade as skateboarding has made the leap from hoodlum pastime to legitimized sport. This Mountain Dew-sponsored Pinball Machine Skate Park in New Zealand, however, may be the most outlandish to date....
Built in only 17 days for a [June 4th] competition, this park cost almost $500,000 to create and will remain open for only 3 weeks [through June 25th], once the contest is over. A true replica of a pinball machine down to the lights, sounds and launcher at the beginning, this park is a dream come true for anyone who has ever been a teenage skater."
