We have seen quite a few magic lovers make Houdini their first pinball machine purchase, including The Chicago Magic Lounge.
The Chicago Magic Lounge is a 7,200 square-foot, deco-style, state-of-the-art theater and lounge – complete with secret doors, elegant performance areas and speakeasy magic bar – dedicated to the art of sleight of hand, prestidigitation and Chicago's contribution to the magical arts. The Houdini Pinball game was purchased as a gift from the owners to the magicians who perform at the Chicago Magic Lounge. The game has been placed in the performers' green room for them to enjoy before and after their performances.
So, unfortunately you need to be a performing magician to play it, but their are other places to play Houdini in Chicago.
