Williams Indiana Jones is a well known and loved machine that has been in the PinballPT collection for a few years. But it does need a lot of work like total clean out and new cabinet decals. This will be good fun and work is already underway.
Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure is a 1993 widebody pinball game designed by Mark Ritchie (the younger brother of acclaimed pinball designer and released by Williams. It was based on the Indiana Jones movies. It was also part of WMS’ SuperPin series of widebody games (see also The Twilight Zone and Star Trek: The Next Generation).
The rebuild and restoration of the WMS Indiana Jones is ongoing and despite many setbacks mainly due to missing and nearly unobtainable parts, we are making progress. Here are more images to show it.
One of the many parts missing was the ramp, the part number is #12-7080 and the picture shows the ramp from the bottom side, it’s
place is in the lower right side of the playfield and the angle goes to the left.
After one year of gathering all the missing bits and pieces that were stolen from this machine they can finally proclaim victory! They are off playing and enjoying the game.
Here are pictures of the work.

This is the restoration of a 1990 Williams Funhouse pinball machine, another project from the PinballPT guys. It’s an interesting concept, designed by Pat Lawlor. It was released in 1990 by Williams Electronics. As its title suggests, the game is themed after the concept of a funhouse, a walk-through amusement park featuring many attractions.
FunHouse features a talking doll head located near the upper-right corner of the playfield. The head, named Rudy, responds in real time to events in the game, including informing the player of special bonuses, taunting and heckling the player, and appearing to follow the ball with its eyes when certain targets are hit. Rudy is voiced by Ed Boon, and the technology behind Rudy’s facial movements was dubbed “Pin-Mation” by Williams.
Compare the Funhouse you see on the flyer to the Funhouse we have here in our workshop and be ready for a big surprise 🙂
The playfield glass of this one had shattered into the cabinet at some point and it has been sitting in a warehouse with it’s ‘insides’ exposed, meaning that a thick layer of dust covered every bit of of the playfield and it’s plastics.
Just two images showing the new trapdoor and a polished metal outhole on the Funhouse.
…some BackBox love…
Mounting it back together
As Good as New, Actually it is missing the cabinet decal set yet… but otherwise impeccable 😀
