They made almost 11K of these, why are they never for sale? I am looking for one in any condition as long as it is priced appropriately. I would prefer QC but beaters work, too. 250 mile radius of 53527 zip is preferred but exceptional machines will get me to go further.


2 years, 9 months ago

I know Cointaker had one at Pinfest in Allentown. It was really nice, CQ, I think $5500 from what I remember.


2 years, 9 months ago

it's amazing any non-dmd can sell for that much.. but then again, it's that nice of a game


2 years, 9 months ago

I found one for sale in Minneapolis, but the guy wants $4700!


2 years, 9 months ago

I've got one not CQ but very nice that I've been kicking around the idea of possibly letting it go.


2 years, 9 months ago

Doot77, what all does it need? I might be interested, too.


2 years, 9 months ago

I have been looking for one - I wanted a restoration project under $2k. I wanted completely working but cabinet decals and playfield blown out will be ok.


2 years, 9 months ago

There's a guy that has one in Downingtown, Pa that was selling on Ebay with no bids and was 3500 firm. PM me if you want info. I gave up when he wouldn't even attempt at any price lower. Its not really nice but 100% functional.

Doot77, what all does it need? I might be interested, too.

To make it perfect it needs new cabinet decals(In Very good shape with very minimal fade and nicks), New Ramps (Decent shape, the steps ramp is just showing typical wear and the center ramp had been cracked from the diverter, but Cliffy set installed and shows no damage other than the again typical ball wear) Actually was going to attempt to flame polish them up, but haven't gotten around to it.

I just restored the PF and Clearcoated it earlier this year.

I thought I had fully assembled pics on my computer but this is as close as I have right now.

PM replied, I've gotten alot of interest in this but I'm giving davewth first shot as he's the OP.


2 years, 9 months ago

Doot77...did I sell you that FH? I had two at one point that needed restored and still kicking myself for letting them both go.


2 years, 9 months ago

Glad to see you are giving the OP first dibs instead of the other people that scammed in on his thread !!!!


2 years, 9 months ago

I'll gladly wait in line if the OP passes. That's what I assumed was happening anyway.

Not for sale at this time. Too much interest.

Still looking. If anyone else has a lead please PM me so i get a shot at it.

Yeah like Dave said I'm going to hold on to it for the time being. There's been talk of a layoff coming at my work so until that happens it will be staying in my collection. If that unfortunately does happen I will be in contact with Dave and if he hasn't found one yet will give him first shot.

Thanks, Matt

BTW those are the new invisiramps that just came out. LOL!


2 years, 9 months ago

Thanks, Matt! I totally understand and I hope everything works out with your employment. That's more important!

Thank you but that's too far.

I have a Funhouse that has been through Treasure Cove. I'd sell it. I'm near Cincinnati, pm me.

Pm sent. I suspect others will too, if history repeats itself.

LoL! Replied to your email with the pics you asked for... I guess you haven't had much luck finding one?

Don't worry. If it sells we can always talk Mousin Around; I have one of those also.

There was one on Los Angeles CL yesterday along with an Addams for $6k package deal. Just looked now to post a link and can't find it, probably sold...


2 years, 9 months ago

I just got offered a "Treasure Cove" Funhouse plus a fully shopped WCS94 (looks almost as good as the Funhouse) for my LOTR.

Turned it down. I'm assuming he'd be willing to sell it but I'm not sure about that.

I know Funhouse is very popular and usually commands a premium price but it's just not one of my favorites.

Besides I already have a trade deal going for the LOTR that I feel committed to.

That woulda been a no-brainer for me. I woulda done it in a heartbeat...

Too late... That was my FH, which I sold earlier today. Shame because I was excited about the LOTR possibility.

Too bad astro those were minty machines and me and Forbes were going
To hand deliver them


2 years, 9 months ago

I must have just missed that TAF and FH deal on CL! I check it all the time and those are the two main pins I'm looking for, too. Would've been nice to get 'em both in one shot....


2 years, 9 months ago

I have a friend who has a game that is in really nice condition with a 0-day mylared playfield. He wants $4500 for it. It's in New Orleans.


2 years, 9 months ago

I am in Dallas, Texas and I've got a FH for sale at $2,300. It is 100% functional and just needs some new backbox side art and it would be good to go. A playfield replacement would get it looking near-perfect.

If anyone is interested (you will have to come pick it up in person) feel free to email me at jdanziger@alum.wustl.edu


2 years, 9 months ago

Thanks for the offers. I am going to stick within 250 miles of 53527 for now. Feel free to post and grab funhouses on my thread with no bad vibes from me!
