I searched for this game for over 4 years.
Here is how I found it. About a week after I started my new job, I took two customers to a
Red Wing game. Somehow, the talk turned to pinball. Jim told me that he had a Haunted
House that worked except for the sound, and an old mechanical with lots of drop targets.
He said there was a long row across the top and two sets near the bottom. I was racking my
brains - High Hand? The he started describing the Space Theme. I asked if it was a Target
Alpha and obviously it was. He was willing to sell it so I bought it in
February of 2002! While I was over
there, I fixed the sound on his Haunted House. I can't claim to be a genius (just a little
smarter than Jim ! ) since all I did was hook up the speaker wire that came off! That was
good for a laugh. I'm sure Jim will call me ready to unload that Haunted House sooner or
later since I've been a good guy and helped him find the Pole Position II he was looking
The game needed to be completely shopped and I fixed a few things that
were broken. It's in great shape and it is one of my favorites.
For a brief time, I had another Target Alpha. Here are some
pictures and the store of the Target
Alpha that I sold. Here are some pictures
of the two games together: Target
Dave has one of these too! Here's a picture of his game
and his story:
