FunHouse Pinball Machine *

“The game is watching you!”

Here it is….FUNHOUSE. The pinball machine you remember with the creepy mechanical talking head on the playfield, “Rudy”. The premise of FunHouse is that Rudy has come to life and taken over the carnival. The game’s playfield is Rudy’s lair, the funhouse of the carnival is painted with a wild color scheme dominated by reds, yellows and blues. An elaborate clock is painted in the middle of this playfield.

The object of the game is to put Rudy to sleep by scoring points to push the hands of this clock forward.

This is no mean feat, as the player has to deal with Rudy the entire game. In fact, his giant head sits at the back of the playfield, watching the game with roving eyes and taunting you with every shot you make.

That talking wooden mug taunts players when they make mistakes and gets angry when they do well. For instance, any time a player makes the clock’s hands move a notch closer to midnight, Rudy would shout, “Stay away from my clock!” As a sweet revenge, players does have the option of getting back at Rudy by hitting him with the pinball or shooting it into his mouth while he was talking (a tricky shot, but one worth 250,000 points).

This FunHouse Pinball Machine is in very nice condition and we have just completed a full reconditioning job to this machine.

Cabinet: The cabinet looks outstanding on this game. As we received it has no fade and probably had the exterior cabinet decals replaced earlier in its life time as FunHouse is prone to suffer from cabinet fade if this game sat anywhere near a window. The coindoor has been repainted. Cabinet legs, and exterior trim has been cleaned and polished.

Backglass/Translite: The translite is very nice with some typical rub marks on the upper right side due to the backbox insert door rubbing up against it. A typical cosmetic issue that is found with most any late Williams System 11 or early WPC game such as this one.

Playfield: We have just thoroughly shopped this machine. Playfield was stripped of all components on the top side and was thoroughly cleaned and polished. New rubber rings installed, new balls and all illumination on this game has been upgraded to super, premium non-ghosting LED’s. This upgrade looks much better, the LED’s last longer and they put less strain on the electronics of the pinball as they consume less energy. Cliffy protectors installed at the scoop holes. New main ramp and new Mirror Billboard installed. Minimal wear on this original non-mylared playfield. There is one cracked decorative playfield plastic beside the right scoop hole, but this in no way effect game play, but we felt it was worth noting to any perspective buyer. All in all, for being 30 years old this is a BEAUTIFUL looking example of FunHouse Pinball Machine.

Both alphanumeric displays are nice and bright and have no issues.

FunHouse has been thoroughly gone over by our technician team who have over 30 years combined experience servicing pinball machines. Rudy has been rebuilt as needed and all functions of his face (eyes, eye lids and mouth) work properly as they should. This pinball machine is functioning 100% and is ready to be enjoyed in your home.

WARRANTY: This pre-owned FunHouse Pinball Machine includes our 30 day warranty.

This is the one to own! FunHouse is a very sought after pinball machine that doesn’t last very long in our inventory. Don’t delay!
