Game Condition:This particular Cirqus Voltaire machine is in about as close to brand new condition as we could possibly hope for, for a commercially used game. Probably the only chance of finding one in better condition would be to find a "home use only" game (good luck!) or a still-new-in-box game (double good luck!)
This game was used in only one commercial location for just over two years and was only moved once. Since then it has spent it's time in a private collector's lineup. This game has always been in a non-smoking, no-food-or-drink area so it was never exposed to the problems and damage from cigarette smoke or spilled food/beverage. So it is exceptionally clean inside and out, and smells clean, too! It received far below-average use in the limited time it was operated, so it has been preserved far better than most other Cirqus Voltaire games out there.
Here is a detailed list of work that has been done on this game, followed by more details on condition:
A tiny bit of cabinet artwork wrinkling/wear (common on these games) is present under some of the edges of some of the legs, but this is not visible with the legs and cabinet protector pads installed.
There is no fading of the cabinet artwork colors on this game. The bright, vibrant colors on the cabinet and backbox are commonly faded on most Cirqus Voltaire games. This game shows no signs of color fading- looks just like new.
Playfield is in overall excellent shape and appears to have had far below-average use. There is no wear on this playfield, as can be common on many Cirqus Voltaire games. One tiny chip in the clearcoat finish is present to the left of the upper "Volt" rollover button- this is not wear, but what appears to be a blemish from the factory- no playfield artwork has been damaged, and it's hardly noticeable- just a tiny spot in the clear ring around the Volt rollover button.
Main ramp on playfield is in excellent shape- no cracks or breaks at either of the ramp ends.
Playfield flat screened (artwork) plastics are all in excellent condition with no cracks or breaks. Slingshot plastics, Skill Shot plastic, and large plastic behind Ringmaster are all brand new- replaced with brand new factory original (not reproduction) pieces!
Backglass artwork is in excellent condition with no damage and no wear or dirt from the "cannon" ball in the backglass. Looks like new, inside and out.
Partial List of New Parts on This Game: ("NOS" means New Old Stock- a part that is original, new, never used).
