Growing up, my dad was an avid collector of arcade games. Eventually one Christmas he bought a sega star wars pinball for the home arcade. That was a pretty fun machine, and it looked awesome next to the star wars vector game he had. Eventually as his obsession grew he bought a simpsons, South Park, and World Cup Soccer pinball! They were all so much fun, and I found myself constantly playing them in his "little" home arcade. One thing that stuck out more than the pinballs for me was his old em haunted house shooting game. I was just blown away by the engineering that went into that game. Plus I've always loved Halloween, and anything horror related!

 Fast forward a few years later I find a haunted house pinball on the wildwood boardwalk and I was hooked! It had the cheesy aesthetic of the haunted house em shooter, and was a fun pinball. I just couldn't stop playing, and I loved how there were three floors to play on. Right then and there I told myself I must own one someday. I know it's not the best pinball, but for me just how beautiful the playfield is was enough for me!

Now as of yesterday I'm a proud owner of one! I was a nice little road trip with a buddy, but was definitely worth it! Here's my first, and definitely not my last pinball!

I enjoyed your story. Lucky is the child whose parents have a home pinball arcade.
You like horror themed pinballs. There are so many others to find: Munsters, Monster Bash, Elvira pins, Frankenstein, Walking Dead, Halloween, Tales from the Crypt, America's Most Haunted, and of course, TAF.. I am sure there are many more.

Great story and I'm a huge Horror fan myself. My first purchase was a Tales From The Crypt. It brings back great memories from my childhood. I'm curious what the Haunted house shooter was that you played?
