I always like to start off my listings with
the following words that you will generally NEVER see on an eBay auction,
especially for pinball machines...
IN-HOME SERVICE and FREE
LIFETIME TECH SUPPORT!
That's right! If you have a problem
with this game, we can come out to your home and repair it. This is our
business, not just a hobby like most sellers! We are so confident in our
restorations that we back them up, unlike other fly-by-night sellers that like
to put the words "AS-IS" on all of their auctions. The reason
we can back up the games we sell is because we actually do the work that's
needed to make the game perform reliably for years to come. It requires
a LOT of work and experience to make a 10, 20 or 30+ year old pinball machine
reliable. Be VERY cautious in buying pinball machines “AS-IS” on the
internet from a stranger that is hundreds or thousands of miles away.
I have built an ENTIRE business by just servicing the problems that
people buy over the internet. An
unrestored game usually results in repairs costing hundreds of dollars or
more! Don't fall
for "free/discount shipping" deals, false ratings on game condition,
bad or misleading pictures and claims of a game being completely
"shopped" to entice you into a "good deal". Don't
fall for sellers that only show you a picture of the game sales FLYER and not
a picture of the ACTUAL GAME they will send you! Pinball machines
can NEVER be compared simply on price and as always... YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY
I want to preface this auction by telling
you a little about myself. I am a qualified pinball machine repair
technician with a long list of happy and satisfied customers. Due to my
in-your-home restoration services, I have a proven track record of service and
support in the Eastern Pennsylvania, Northern/Central/South Jersey and Northern
Welcome race fans to... BANZAI RUN!
This game was produced in 1988 by Williams, the maker of the greatest and most collectable
modern pinball machines on the planet. Banzai Run is one of the most unique
games ever created. It has a complete playfield inside the head of the
game with flippers, targets, kickers and everything! Never done before
and never done after! The game was the brainchild and very first game
designed by the great Pat Lawlor, who went on to create such titles as
Earthshaker, Whirlwind, Funhouse, Addams Family and Twilight Zone. This
game was so expensive to produce that a limited number were created.
Only about 1700 of these were built. I was fortunate enough to get to
play one when they were new and it has always been one of my favorite
games. I have not had one of these in over a decade! The majority
of these games are already in the hands of the major pinball collectors and
they never give them up. The artwork, sound and gameplay puts you right
out on the moto-cross track, making for one intense game of pinball!
You'll love the rocking soundtrack and the announcer as he welcomes you to the
Banzai Run! The main objective of the game is to challenge the five
competitors to become the KING OF THE HILL. You start out in sixth
place, behind Yellow Belly, Blue Beard, Green Machine, Red Hot and The
King. There are targets on the lower playfield that correspond to 4 of
the 5 racers. Hit the corresponding targets to light the competitors in
the upper playfield. Once you have one or more of the racers lit, you
can shoot for the elevator to take you to the upper playfield. Once
there, you will see the necessary shots to defeat the racers. Defeat all
of the 4 lower-end competitors, then you can challenge The King. Do this
by locking a ball in the upper playfield, then the MULTI-BALL frenzy
begins! During multi-ball, you have to shoot the center hole with one
ball and go for the upper playfield with the second ball. Make it to the
top of the upper playfield for ONE SHOT at the captive ball. Blow it and
start all over again! The rules are simple, just like moto-cross, but
VERY difficult to actually win. There's also a FREESTYLE mini-pachinko
game in the upper playfield! That's not all, the playfield features a
ramp and other targets to spot competitors and also add LAPS. The more
laps you accumulate, the more bonus points you get at the end of the
round. There are other great features such as a ball save kickback,
captive holes, an up-post between the upper flippers, pop-bumpers, slingshots,
roll-overs and more! The classic and extremely family-friendly theme goes great in any home gameroom!
This game was so popular when it came out that it's very hard to find one at
all, let alone in such great condition. The circuit boards are all
original to the game with matching serial numbers! The playfield on this game is in excellent condition due to the fact that the
majority of it is covered with a factory-cut clear mylar protective layer.
The mylar appears to have been installed when the game was fairly new, but
there are a few inserts with minor wear underneath the mylar and the mylar
also has some bubbling at some of the inserts. The upper playfield is
absolutely gorgeous! The ramps and plastics on the playfield are original
and in very good condition with a few blemishes and cracks. The original
silk-screened backglass is in pristine condition with no flaking or
peeling paint and brand new LED score displays have been installed. The cabinet is
excellent and unfaded with minor blemishes which have been touched-up.
The chrome legs have been polished and brand new playfield glass has been
installed. This game is
a huge hit for pinball machine enthusiasts and it plays lightning fast just like it did in
