Gothic gaming can probably be sourced to masquerades and costume parties and to the pre-computer mechanical arcade slot machines with themes such as 'The Haunted Churchyard', 'Midnight in the Haunted Churchyard', 'The Nightwatchman' and 'Necromancer'. P.T. (Playable Teaser) is a psychological horror game by Konami that uses first person perspective to move through a haunted house in a loop encountering a radio, pictures of murdered family members and a vengeful ghost called Lisa. Joseph Emberton opened the first actual ghost train roller-coaster-style ride in 1930, the name derived from Arnold Ridley's popular stage play. There are small collectible ghost trains such as 'The Journey of Doom', a hand-crafted and 'illuminated' 'slaughter and monster' model train collection. Pleasure-grounds often run Halloween Haunted train rides and even supply 'phantom' train stations where passengers can disembark.
