"A SEA of comments on pinside".... "teach a man to FISH" .... after hearing that from the podcast I'm thinking it's JAWS.
Quoted from guitarded:

If BeetleJuice it would be nice to have not only the Danny Elfman theme song but should include Day-O & Jump In The Line from Harry Belafonte.
Speaking of how cool would it be to have Day-O playing and have some dinner type looking shrimp hand thing grab the ball and sink it under the play field.
Or BeetleJuice when he turns into the carnival inflatable with a VUK have the ball physically fly up into and behind the backbox.
The gigantic sandworm /snake creature can grab the ball.
The girls girls girls inferno room... nicely lit with red LED’s
Get the book of recently deceased to unlock the hidden wall which the ball enters.
Lydia Mechanically flys / lifts up dances during jump in the line song with the other items rocking / bouncing up and down.
Have an audio feature such as voice recognition similar to Siri where if players in the room scream out “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice” three times something happens where he takes over like phantom flip on monster bash... this would only happen once per 3-balls etc.

Nobody would expect the Blob! It tosses Nickelodeon Gack / blob type stuff at your face while wizard mode starts lol
I'm really curious why more pinball doesn't have interactive stuff as Ben mentioned... Example of this and something simple to achieve is Disney World has an attraction called "It's Tough to Be a Bug!" inside the tree of life at Animal Kingdom from the movie a Bug's Life... During the attraction "Hornets sting the audience (which triggers hidden pokers as well as leg ticklers in the back of the seats)"
How amazing would stuff like that be to implement into pinball, hide them in the legs, the sides of the cabinets / near the flipper buttons. Does any game do that ?! Where it's not just mechanically interacting with the ball / playfield toys, but actually the player ?!
Yes I own a whirlwind and it blows wind at your face which is what I'm saying an amazing novelty that works incredibly with the theme,... why don't we have more games incorporate physical interaction with the player ?!
