Official World Premier!

The 2017 Texas Pinball Festival is proud to present the official world premiere of: “Things That Go Bump In the Night: The Spooky Pinball Story.”


A devoted family man in rural Wisconsin gives up the security of a successful 20-year career to pursue his dream in the boom-or-bust world of pinball manufacturing. While trying to break into a tough competitive market and build a thriving business, he must navigate the bumpy roads that new startups inevitably face, without plunging his family into financial ruin.

“Things That Go Bump In the Night: The Spooky Pinball Story”¬†chronicles the journey of The Emery Family – Charlie, Kayte, Bug, and Squirrel – as they meet the challenges of building their family-run business in the small community of Benton, Wisconsin. With no “Plan B,” Charlie and his Spooky Pinball team are all-in and committed to doing whatever it takes to succeed.
