    Default Elvis Pinball - opinions

    Hi peeps ,been off the forums for months now but I am slowly crawling back.
    During the month of May I was staying in Yorkshire and while revisiting Scarborough I discovered an Elvis pinball on the top floor of one of the few sea front arcades, I made an immediate beeline for it as I had not played any pinball since the Pinball Show over here at Villa Park in 2006!.
    I have to be honest I really enjoyed it and played it three times which is more time than I spend on a modern arcade game, first go was fun and wetted my appetite but most of the balls drained on my second go which prompted a third play where I triggered the multiple ball which is always fun.
    I have developed a new interest in pinballs to accompany my regular retro game formats and have just subscribed to both the spooky pinball and The pinball podcast but so far I have not heard the Elvis pin mentioned .
    So after all this waffle my questions are directed mostly at Scott but I guess any input from pin heads would be of interest., How common is the Elvis pin In the US and in your opinions how does it fair amongst collectors and players as a great pin table?
    Thanks Jj

    I played more pinball than anything else at Play Manchester last weekend, as did my daughter.

    I've only played Elvis a couple of times myself, they have one on the pier at St Anne's near Blackpool.

    I found it OK but not great. I think Scott likes it if I recall correctly.

    Bonus points if when the machine tilts it plays "I'm all shook up"

    Playing that Elvis has got me in to pinball a little more ,I now have both Pinball Arcade and Zaccaria Pinball on Steam and listen to three Pin podcasts on top of the thirty or so retro casts I already listen to.

    Pinball Arcade is amazing and has some of the best pins available.
