My friend owns this game. The game pisses me off, and makes me want to keep playing it. It is a hard game. The more I play it the more I like it.

Always fun to play and listening to the interactions with Rudy makes this a long lasting theme game. The clock at midnight and getting the ball into Rudy;s mouth continues to make this a classic pinball and one that should be in any pinball enthusiast collection.

This is one of my all time favorite pins and it never gets old to me. The playfield is laid out well, shots are relatively easy, and there's plenty of things to shoot for. Rudy's call-outs make this game even more fun, and they're cheeky enough to find humor in them as an adult while still being the perfect family game. Go ahead and play this game, you...big...sausage!

I've played at least a thousand games on my FunHouse. It's fast, has deep rules for being 30 years old, and a great light show! Looks even better with LEDs!

Lot's of fun to play....hey, it's called FUNhouse. But for some reason, the main toy just creeps me out. If you've ever seen the movie Magic, then you'll know what I mean. Audio design is exceptional, very clear with a catchy main theme. The layout is fun to shoot but the ball is held for too long in some places. The rules are ok, but don't excite me in anyway, so I have no urge to do it all over again...and again...and agan, listening to that little freak.

I would never own one, and would only occasionally play it in the wild if I ever saw one.

Probably one of the first pins to draw me in. Rudy is one of the best gimmicks ever, following the ball, falling asleep, turning a little evil. Love the layout, rules and call outs do a good job letting you know what to do next. I wish someone would remake this game I would be all over it but very hard to play one in route that is tip top but when you do you can’t go wrong with this pin. Original pin for sure considering the time period. All pin manufacturers do a movie theme and there are plenty that I love but something a little more original like this pin will always make it a classic and keep this at the top of my favorites list.

Best classic of all time. I still compare all new games to Funhouse! Art, call outs, gameplay, fun factor,you name it, Funhouse delivers!
NOTHING taunts you more than Rudy!

I don't like it. I think its overhyped. I have played about 5 different decks of this one, so it wasn't just one bad example.
To be fair the one @ Lyons pinball was the best example . But , It's not for me but that's the nice thing about pinball. Everyone has different tastes. Some fun shots and the clock is fun. Rudy is annoying. There are better options out there for the crazy price this goes for. I wanted to like it. Just meh..

Another Pat Lawler classic. Good enough to be the only pin you own.

a Pinball masterpiece by Pat Lawlor , Rudy mocking & taunting you all through this game never gets old for me

Hey Bucko.
Everytime Rudy calls me Biff, I want to punch Rudy in the face like Goerge McFly knocked out Biff Tannon in Back to the Furture.
Pure classic.

My dream's pinball. My first complete restore for one of the best pinball in Williams' story

My favorite Pat Lawlor game. So much innovation and variety of shots! Someday I hope to keep a Rudy captive in my basement.

Rudy! Love the sound effects and music on this one, the diverter on the ramp makes it fun! Advancing to midnight and starting multiball is fun!

Good game. The head scares me.

"QUIT PLAYING WITH THE CLOCK!" Rudy's personality simply leaps out of this game. It's fun to make him increasingly frantic as the game develops. I don't think there's a funnier moment in pinball than when you wake him up to start multiball. And when you earn the jackpot or post a high score, the music and light show that rewards you is the best in all of pinball.

Another Pat Lawlor masterpiece, and no shocker at all that the value on this one is skyrocketing. Reminds me a lot like Twilight Zone, but on a smaller scale. Somewhat creepy, dark, with so much to offer and to do. A very deep game, especially for it's time. And possibly THE best toy in all of pinball with Rudy. Great theme and the playfield screams funhouse everywhere you look!

Owned for a while and I did enjoy it.
Just like newer titles way better.
It's a keeper in a 15 pin collection
