Wait — before you exchange your loose coins for dollar bills, you might want to read this first. Alice Cooper wants you to save your quarters.
Later this year, Cooper will be releasing a pinball alley — possibly near you.
Spooky Pinball, a pinball company, just announced that they will be putting out “Alice Cooper’s Nightmare Castle” this fall. Even though there is not yet a release date, development is moving along nicely.
They’re promising “lots of classic and modern Alice Cooper music” that will be more than just his biggest hits. The company says Cooper’s pinball machine will be an “awesome spooky monster-filled adventure game,” complete with background music from Rob Zombie band member Piggy D.
Cooper seems pumped for the release.
“When I’m not onstage blasting nearly 50 years of music and getting my head chopped off every night, I tend to kick back,” he says. “Some of you may know I’m quite the golfer; that’s how I relax. But when I’m really feeling crazy, I play pinball.”
What’s so great about pinball? Well, Cooper loves the aspect of pinball that you’d expect him to love.

“The speed, the chaos, the mayhem, the brutality of that ball flying around out of control makes me happy!” he says. “That’s why I’m excited to announce I’m finally getting my own pinball machine. I know you’ll like it because it’s all about me; my songs, my voice, my world — it’s all about me!”
Intrigued? Then keep an eye on Spooky Pinball’s website. They’ll be posting updates about “Nightmare Castle” and its production.
