Lemax Spooky Town - FUNHOUSE




For our final look at a Lemax Spooky Town building... this time we go a little further back to 2006, when the FUNHOUSE was initially released. It was retired 7 years later in 2013. This one is much harder to find in mint/complete working condition than the other houses we've looked at. I was fortunate to come across one, so I snagged it. All three that I own are Frankenstein themed and this is not only the largest, standing 9" high, 9" wide, and 6 inches deep, it is also my favorite.



The Funhouse is a porcelain piece with animation, sound, and lights. The overall theme is that of a carnival funhouse and maybe even a bit of a dark/haunted ride feel. It has the look of an old castle complete with spiral staircases. This one has numerous stand out features, including what I find to be the main attraction... the large Frankenstein that adorns the front and also frames the entry/exit path that displays the animation of the Mummy chasing 3 terrified patrons. There are also mirrors lining the inner portion of the animation to really ad to the funhouse vibe.



There are various scenes and characters sprinkled throughout the outer portions... including a werewolf and grim reaper that are perched on either side of the bold Funhouse signage. On the bottom left we see an executioner with a severed head and wooden shackles standing next to a vampire posing as the ticket taker. To the right of the piece, we see a skeleton resting his bones against one of the pillars and a cut-out photo op of Frankenstein and a witch. And finally, behind that there is a boy stuck in the spinning tunnel.



The lighting especially, on this one really gives it a killer look. The soundtrack is that of a carnival barker "Hurry, hurry, hurry! Step right up, you'll laugh yourself to death!" and "the last laughs are on us" all overlayed on creepy clownish carnival music.


When its all said and done... and while I don't think I'm gonna be constructing an actual village/town setting complete with ground/trees/citizens/etc, the three "FRANKENSTEIN" themed houses I currently own do make for an interesting and visually appealing shelf display.

And would recommend any of these, even if its some decor you only display at Halloween.
