Great looking pinball machine and very fun to play however, after you complete the relatively easy objectives it can get repetitive...without other games in a collection, unfortunately, SS could get old quick.

Beatiful pin with Great game! My SS has Soul...some days so easy to master, other days Elvira send me away with drains after drains.

Simply great pin. No special features but everything is right where it should be for nice flow and fun. Good rules for beginners, but enough deep for long time playing. Awesome!!

I'm not a big Elvira fan but I love the two games based on her. This game is the better of the two if only for it's modern advances. All of the shots are very satisfying. The callouts are great. The music is decent. Some of the best playfield design integrated with the art.

Not my theme, just can't get into this. The gadgets on the playfield are real nice, the chest, the frogs, the bones. I like the shots. I like the backglass. But for the rest, it just is not a machine I walk to and go play.

Had it, sold it - haven't missed it. Beautiful game in every way - great theme, good flow, funny, but simply boring after a bit - it just seems to be missing that something to put it out of the ballpark...and that's something you only realize after owning it for a bit...first impressions with this pin are HUGE....

This is a really fun machine and definitely a classic! The theme is awesome artwork and dot animations are a great compliment to the overall package. The call out by Elvira are entertaining and always good for a few laughs. The game plays very smoothly and the fun factor is through the roof on this pin. They playfield has a great layout and there plenty of fun shots to make.

On the negative side, the ruleset is a bit on the shallow side, but it's deep enough to keep the pin fun. Also, this machine loses a bit of its charm once familiarity sets in. While it's something that happens to every machine, many of the jokes and call outs start to feel a bit stale quicker than usual. However, it's always great machine to go back to after taking a bit of a break. All in all, this is a super fun pinball with great artwork, good shots, and a classic theme.

Definitely a timeless classic

Lots of fun. Elvira's not-so-subtle double-entendre humor is entertaining (if not family friendly). The spinning spider is a great gimmick (but the call-out for it could use some variety. "Stop the spider" gets a little old.)

Fun game. Just feels a bit too easy at times. The callouts and fun factor make up for that. A perfect game to play in a friend's home collection just not sure I want to own one. That being said it's pretty damn awesome and a ton of fun.

Elvira Rocks!!! Have you been Scared Stiff?

Not sure this machine will be a keeper but so far its living up to expectations. A fun pin which is easy to learn the rules and play for both experienced and casual players.

By far the better of the 2 Elvira based games. Love the artwork sounds and play of it. Lucky to own one of these beauties and have just added the new nvram chip no more batteries ever yeahhhhhh...! Easily in the top 10 of pinball to own. Uhhhhhh I'm having multiple jackpots haha

This game is absolutely unforgettable. Another notch for my bedpost! I love the spider award wheel on the back box. While I find the game itself to be on the easy side. There is plenty of variety, modes, and fun to be had. A little bit of sexual innuendo goes a long way with this game. The grand finale ending in the stiff-o-meter of course. Once gameplay has mastered it isn't really a challenge afterwards. Extremely easy to get the multiball. And the game does give out a lot of extra balls. I would definitely recommend this game to anybody as it is a blast to play.
