It's nearing that special time of horror, when Halloween magic starts to take shape within the brain. And alas, it's also time for HORRORHOUSE FEST, an event us evil maniacs at Bloodshed Deathbath conceived 7 years ago that combines a haunted house with a pinball tournament! With the help of our generous sponsors and volunteers we have truly created some of the wildest rides imagineable, taking each iteration to a whole new level, with each game getting a full set design and actors to match. And for the first time ever we are taking it outside of our comfort zone of Denver, Colorado and bringing it up to the pinball capitol of the world for the 35th anniversary PINBALL EXPO in Chicago! Yes we are truly terrified to load up our Bloodshed Deathtruck and make this attempt, but we are determined to make it happen and can't wait to reveal our latest build to those in the great midwest!
So, what can you expect from this crazy HAUNTCADE?!? Well, first of all, don't expect the normal ride. Each edition of HHF is magic and unique, and the games are never fully revealed until players make their way in during one of the 3 scheduled tournaments happening throughout the weekend. Not only will we be bringing a fully body controlled game which we built ourselves entitled "Bloodshed Deathgame", but we also plan to thrill and delight players of all ages with games both familar and obscure from manufacturers of today and yesterday.
Actors throughout the Hauntcade will do everything they can to distract and challenge the players, and for the four hour duration of each tournament each player will be able to go through the "house" over and over until they can't handle it anymore. Their goal?! Get the highest score on each game and come out of Horrorhouse Fest as a true champion of technical skill and true concentration. Not a pro player?? No worries on that as nobody is a pro in this kind of environment, and winners span all the various age groups.
Prizes themselves will be as wild as ever, as we always make sure to reward the champs with items you'dever expect to win at a pinball show. We've given away everything from vintage video game systems, custom HHF trophies, board games of today and yesterday, and even actual arcade machines! What will this edition be giving away?!? Well, you'll just have to wait and see as it'll be quite the surprise as always.

So how can you enter this amazing experience you may be wondering? It's easy! You can pre-order your spot in one of three dates during the Pinball Expo at the links below to make sure you get in... otherwise you can alternately buy a ticket at the show itself by coming up to our door and asking us if spots are still available. During the past shows, such as our recent romp at the Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown tickets have gone fast, so plan ahead and for sure feel free to email us directly if you have any questions. I, being the Night Mutilator can't wait to see all your scary faces this go around, and we hope to make your 2019 Halloween season of pinballin' the one to remember!
