As a fan of pinball who can't afford anything, it's frustrating to me to see a lot of the rarer classics almost entirely unavailable to play. Cactus Canyon sticks out to me as it's, according to pinball map, only found in 12 locations in north america. The nearest one is 600 miles away from me personally, and that seems relatively not that far. I'm not talking about the super rare games or old games that have mostly disintegrated, but the great games produced in at least decent numbers by the big makers. What are some other great games that can't seem to escape the private collections?

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Haunted House in the wild and while it’s older, it was made in big numbers.
I seldom (if ever?) have seen it in a tournament bank or someone’s collection. Trying to rack up as much monster bonus as possible is the trip.

As for more modern games that are seldom seen, Stern Elvis comes to mind and it’s very good.

I agree about cc but I would say king pin and big bang bar.
