I'll second Godzilla. It's one of the best sterns in recent years. I'm not a huge fan of stern overall, but Godzilla knocked it out of the park.

But did you sing it to the music of Folsom Prison Blues?

They just released funhouse 2.0 Rudy's revenge. It's an overlay on an original funhouse pin. Pretty neat. 

I looked in to this and I'm confused.  Is this an actual pinball machine based on the original or is this a video game?

It's an upgrade to the original pinball machine.  You take an original funhouse pinball, and buy the upgrade kit.  It gives you new back glass, artwork, and program.  Your Funhouse is now a Funhouse 2.0. It's a different game built on top of the old one.

There's an awesome spot by me in Middletown, NY. Combination metal shop, head shop, tees and vinyls, with a big back pinball area. Owned by the same guys for over 35 years. I'm not a huge pinball guy, but the vibes are very cool and very hayday 80s. Owner also sponsors a bunch of circle track events locally too in a GRM connection.

Ah.  Thank you!  I'd love to have one, but not $11K worth of love (+ the upgrade)...

It's a reskin. My understanding is you take a funhouse and convert it.

I'm guessing you're aware of this but if not; Funspot in Laconia (not far from Weirs Beach) has large arcades with vintage games including pinball. Not terribly far from your location.

I was there last week!!!  That place is a time machine for me.  I was there in the 70's as a kid.
