(Note this video shows a previous pinball machine that has sold)
The Hook Pinball Machine is manufactured by Data East, makers of some of the world’s greatest pinball machines.
This fantastic machine will make a great addition to any pinball arcade or collection. Based on the Steven Spielberg classic starring Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman, this table features likenesses and sound from the movie, and a playfield full of references to moments in the film.
Hook has one of the most intriguing layouts of any Data East pinball machine, with its enormous spiralling Windcoaster ramp which is lit with alternating red lights, and the central Skull Rock playfield feature.
- Two fun ramp shots – Ride the enormous Windcoaster ramp, or the lightning quick Baseball Ramp.
- Skull Rock – The glowing eyes of Skull Rock watch over the lower playfield. Shoot into Skull Rock to claim rewards, or watch your ball sail out of the skull’s mouth.
- Multiball Modes – A chaotic multiball mode has players scoring jackpots on the left and right ramps.
- Moulded Playfield Buildings – The world of Steven Spielberg’s Hook comes to life with these buildings on the left side of the playfield.

Our Hook is one of the older machines in our showroom, but has been well looked after for the duration of its life. The machine’s playfield is in excellent condition, with excellent playfield graphics still intact, and the mechanics also in top working order.
Some machines we sell are fully restored, where we will fit new decals, new playfields, new parts such as ramps, and even upgrade certain items, such as the sound components. Where this type of reconditioning process has been undertaken we will make it absolutely clear that this is the case and the price will reflect the amount of time taken and costs incurred in this process.
Reconditioning and Servicing – 26 Point Checklist:
Buying a pinball can be a lot like buying a car: there can be problems underneath the bonnet that you wouldn’t even know about, until they interrupt your fun!
It’s worth noting that pinball machines are complicated in their workings. There are pitfalls to buying a second hand pinball machine elsewhere, and if you don’t know what to look for, you can have an incomplete machine running at less than its potential. Furthermore, you could purchase a machine that is 20-30 years old and has a serious electrical fault.
However, every machine that comes through our doors undergoes an extensive 26-point check with our trained engineer. This service is exclusive to every pinball we sell at Home Leisure Direct. All machines undergo a full PAT test by a fully qualified engineer to eliminate any risk. We also check everything including the lighting, coils, flippers, full mechanics, electronics and everything else in between. These checks ensure that all components are rigorously tested and working.
This even includes cosmetic touch ups and a full wax clean. We complete this 26-point check to ensure your new pinball machine is in tip-top working order and ready to spend a new life with its new owner.

For an extra fee you can upgrade the bulbs in this pinball machine, from standard bulbs to super-bright LED bulbs. This will make your pinball table look absolutely amazing, as well as increasing the lifespan of the bulbs.
Pinball Table Measurements:
Please ensure you fully check that a pinball of this size will fit into your intended location.
We sell our restored, reconditioned and used products to home users; as a result, a functioning coin mechanism is not included, because the machine will be set to freeplay. However, we do offer the option to install a coin mechanism, in case you wish to set your newly purchased pinball up for that traditional feel where you can insert coins, or even charge your friends to play.
For an extra fee we will recondition the coin mechanism in your chosen pinball and test it thoroughly, leaving it in full working order. Please select from the drop-down options at the side of the screen.
This pinball machine comes with a 1 year parts warranty. All parts that are faulty will be replaced. Often we can solve any problems over the phone and supply any necessary components for the customer to fit. If necessary our specialist repairer can visit your home to inspect and repair your machine on-site, but this would be chargeable. Please call us for a call-out quotation. If parts are required which are not carried at the time these will need to be ordered for you, and will sometimes need to be imported from the States – therefore, there can be a wait for the part to arrive.
After our 1 year warranty has expired we will continue to offer you complete support for any problems you have, either over the phone or by email, and can provide a chargeable engineer call out should it be required. Whatever happens, we will be able to look after you and your pinball machine.
Pinball machines are complicated items, which don’t like being moved about, nor do they like the cold or humidity. Therefore, if you chose to move the pinball machine from where we originally installed it, or it is stored in a cold or damp location, our warranty will become null and void. We won’t be able to supply any parts for your machine free of charge if it has been accidentally damaged or you have tampered with it in any way.
Where a used/secondhand/reconditioned item is not being used in a home, but is instead being placed in a commercial location such as a bar, pub, cafe, restaurant, bowling alley, trampoline park, youth club, office, factory, or similar, we will offer a 30 day on-site service warranty should any problems occur which are not a result of any misuse or malicious damage. This warranty will cover parts and labour.
