Habitrail is the nickname
given to the wire tunnels
gracing the playfield
of a pinball
game. The nickname was given due to the resemblance
between the wire tunnels sized perfectly for a pinball, and the plastic tunnels that some gerbil
habitats have for the animals
to scurry through.
It is also sometimes applied to plastic ramps also, as they are serving the same purpose on the playfield.
This term is used almost very frequently when reading descriptions of the features of a table, and rulesheets, that are found on the internet.
