Freddy: A Nightmare on Elm Street | Gottlieb
This pinball machine is everything you want from a Nightmare on Elm Street. There’s Freddy’s gruesome face, the clawed glove, and even his fiery furnace. It’s a spooky game that is a blast to play.

Twilight Zone | Bally
Twilight is one of the most sought after pinball machines in existence.. But even today, if you can find someone selling a Twilight Zone, it is going to be expensive. High demand means a high price.

America’s Most Haunted | Spooky
Spooky’s motto is “putting the ‘boo’ in boutique.” They are only able to produce a small number of games, but many people love the games that they make.

Scared Stiff | Bally
Scared Stiff is a horror game, but it’s also a bit more adult themed even without the horror aspects. This is the second pinball machine with the beautiful and leggy Elvira. She’s got a bunch of callouts that might make you blush, but the fun doesn’t stop with this table.
Haunted House | Gottlieb
Haunted house is a very unique table made by Gottlieb. They actually made the game with three levels. You can go into the depths of the haunted house or go up in the attic.

Whether it is the film, or the game, what’s for certain is that Addams was the most popular pinball machine ever with Bally Producing over 20,000 tables. This table was introduced right at the height of pinball’s 90’s spike, and with a ton of special features. These ensured that the game was a huge success.
