For sale: Haunted House AND Black Hole PAIR(Gottlieb, 1982)

Added: January 22nd, 2016 Ended: January 25th, 2016
Condition: Used - shows wear, needs some work

Item description

Love these machines and want them to go to a good home. HUO machines and the only part of Black Hole that is not working is one of the switches on a board because I have replaced the coil, diode, and transistor but I am not experienced enough to work on the boards and I do not have the money to send it off somewhere. I have brand new plastics with the paper still on as well as a rubber ring kit that I installed on BH, it was sitting for awhile and one or two of the small bolts are dislodged for the plastics holder. I love the game and I'm grateful that it was my first experience with owning a machine but I would really like a fully working machine in my house to tinker with instead of diving right in. I also have a haunted house and I am selling, the playfield is a little flaky and there seems to be a problem with a header pin connection because it will not startup properly and it isn't a grounding issue, it looks like three of the boards have been replaced on haunted house but it's missing the main fuse as well. There is a rubber ring kit for haunted house that I have not put on yet as well as extra coils, diodes, fuses, and other supplies for both games. I will have pictures up tomorrow but the playfield for BH is in decent condition, the only thing is around the glass to the lower playfield is sunken in a little bit and there is some wear in general. Displays and sound work for BH. It has been off for a while and is in attract mode, at least the last time I tried which was a week ago. 1600 firm for both. Also, 1 story place with garage bay and I have a lift jack. The keyhole for the door on BH is messed up but the one for HH is fine. I haven't cleaned or really done anything to HH since I got it. Also, the top right corner of the back glass has peeled off a bit but I haven't made any attempts to fix it. It was like that when I got it and I just don't have the time or money to put into these machines. Trying to trade or put the money toward a working early or late 90s pin.

I will get back to everyone asap, I've been dealing with the snow and I will be out of town from the 25th thru the 29th.

That is a real good deal for somebody who likes to work on electronics. I have both in good working condition and together they are worth about $3500.

#3 3 years ago

Really wish i was closer for this one!!!!

#4 3 years ago

might want to see some pics before deciding if it's a great deal or not . . .

#5 3 years ago

Bummer you don't have the BH fully working -- I think you'd really enjoy playing it as first pin.

Seeing this is a combo package for $1600, this seems like a good deal.

GLWTS(s).

#7 3 years ago

When I was around 7 and the movie, The Toy, came out, I've wanted a Haunted House ever since.

#8 3 years ago

I miss my black hole, this is a great deal if they are in decent condition.

#9 3 years ago

Even as projects, id buy the pair for 1600. Glws!

#10 3 years ago

Wish I could add both to the collection same old story location location location glws and next pin purchase

#11 3 years ago

How has this not sold yet? Even w/o pics, I'd be all over this if you were closer!! (and I even own a restored BH!)

#12 3 years ago

I'd take the Haunted House if someone wants to split the deal. Not sure it sounds like a 50-50 split because of condition, but maybe someone wants to work something out???

#13 3 years ago

Holy sh!£ somebody buy these N O W !!!!!!

It's like going back in time about 5 yrs ago !!!

#14 3 years ago

*checks* ten hour drive... hrm

#15 3 years ago

Want both of these, but it is quite a leap of faith to make the long road trip without some pics.

#16 3 years ago

didn't these start out at 1150 then 1250 and now 1600 ????????????????

#17 3 years ago

That snow storm is there right now too...pick up might be a bitch!

That was another thread.

#20 3 years ago

Better buy them before they get to 2,000.00. Everyone keeps chiming in and telling him he's to cheap, blah,blah,blah and the price keeps going up! Next week those same people will be complaining about the high price on pins! Ed

#21 3 years ago

message sent. I'll take both, call me. number in message sent

#22 3 years ago

by the way I travel so pick up is no big deal

#23 3 years ago

I too sent a PM, and I also will come to you!

Mabe he should raise the price again.

Wrong thread.

I think you're thinking of the black hole that was for sale by proxy recently

Yes your right. I'm on the wrong thread, sorry.

#27 3 years ago

well, no reply. anyone hear from this guy?

#28 3 years ago
Quoted from leonml:

His PM box is probably completely full lol.

#29 3 years ago

I would love both! Damn

#30 3 years ago

I messaged and am waiting. yes I want them both still

#31 3 years ago

The top of the ad says that there's a sale pending so someone got this deal.

Steve

#32 3 years ago

not me. he asked if I wanted them after pics when I said I wanted them before. them I heard nothing. I wish things were better communicated when things are for sale. I've run into a lot of bs from sellers after being first to say they wanted something to find out someone came over with cash and there goes my deal. not much etiquette to be seen with a few out there.

#33 3 years ago
#34 3 years ago

Man, I got to the messages when I could. These were my first 2 pins that I worked on a ton because I love pinball and I'm putting them toward a working one. I apologize to those that got a late response but I've been working thru the storm while maintaining things at home. I'm 26 and work about 60 hour weeks every week as a carpenter. I'm not trying to be rude but I don't check my phone often. I'm not taking advantage and I'm not even making money on these machines. I'm sorry that I'm new to this site but life gets in the way and I want everyone to have the same responses. I hope I'm not out casting myself here but it's the truth. I hope to learn a lot from you all and do business as well. Cheers and happy hunting,

Steven.

#35 3 years ago

No problem Steven, I'm a General Contractor and can relate. Some forget that there are outside forces like weather and life itself that take precedence over a sale of pinballs. It looked like a decent deal you offered up. If you decide to keep them or the deal falls through, along with many others here, I do a lot of System 80 tech, just start a tech thread and one of us will help.
