Pinball Tournament of Death 2017 - Help Wanted!

So I'm in the infant stages of the fifth year of my crazy "hauntcade" and I must say... it's mind numbing to think of all that needs to happen to make it possible. What started as a haunted house with independent films has turned into a totally unique pinball experience that I feel needs to live on, regardless of the financial stress or difficulty of building.

So that's why I'm writing this story now. Hoping to find some other awesome horror loving pinball maniacs to jump in and take this years fest where it needs to go. I'm looking for actors, pinball machines, set designers, security people, and concession folk. On top of the all important sponsors, hosts, and lovely lovely companies wanting to attend and show off their goods.

The pitch is this... Imagine walking into a haunted house (in Denver, Colorado of course), where every room is styled after a pinball machine living within it. Actors are there to try and destract you from the real goal of getting high scores, and the vibe is fun, weird and occasionally super scary. Come out of the insane house alive and with the overall best scores and you will win some outrageous and fun stuff beyond your wildest imagination. Vintage video games, D&D Manuals, pinball toys and even cash have been prizes in the past, and this year promises even more!

Sound like something you would be into? Either as a helper or an attendee? Having a hard time believing I have actually done this in the past with any success? Well watch the video below for proof, and comment on this story so we can get in touch with each other!! Horrorhouse Fest 2017 promises to be the best yet, and with your help it will become a legendary event!!!

We just locked in a venue that is beyond amazing for this coming fest too. Will be releasing those details at Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown.

Looks like the result of a lot of legal weed and a French-kissing chihuahua.

Dang, I wish I lived in Denver!!! I'm a horror novelist, so when I saw your post headline, I opened it instantly. I wish I could be part of it! That is crazy cool!

It's all happening in November! I wish you could all help as well. It's a super fun event, and by far one of the weirdest!

Even those out of town who are interested in the fest and like-minded should hit me up via message as I'd love to connect with like-minded pinballers!

Hi! I'm from Denver and would love to plan a trip home to match up with this. Is there a date yet? (Sorry if it is posted and I missed it)

The date is about to be announced, but I can give the inside scoop and let you know it's not until November...
