    Just picked up a CFTBL and was sitting there working on things, when the attract mode came on - has to be one of the best attract modes, any other favorites out there.

    Centaur! The reverb voice tells you the playfield feature and the lights light it up. It starts with

    Challenge me...orb feature.... etc

    I like my NGG sounds

    #4 8 years ago

    I was gonna say that too... Doesn't it also shoot balls into the playfield and actually play itself?? (not sure of the flippers fire though!?).

    It shoots four balls onto the playfield with some sound effects, but the flippers won't operate. I turned it off after a while cuz it was a little annoying.

    Taxi has a nice sounding attract mode

    The all time attract mode light show must be HS. It's hypnotic. I didn’t keep it due to the lack of depth, but I almost could have for the light show.

    FH is pretty good as well.

    T2 is the worst for not being able to turn of the goddamn sounds...

    Centaur is awesome. JM is pretty entertaining.

    #8 8 years ago

    AHH forgot about Centaur - yeh that is pretty cool idea, damn I need one of those, picked up a beat up Centaur playfield yesterday for ten bucks so Im partially there.

    Black Hole is pretty good with its hypnotizing backglass disc.

    #10 8 years ago

    Lol one of the best attract modes is Sacred Stiff as I am in it

    Yes it does, it circulates the balls every so often

    Whirlwind has a pretty good attract mode.

    Yah, it's kinda weird hearing Tommy music outta my TFTC. I suppose it works though since I kinda want a Tommy now!

    LOTR has a cool Attract Mode, when it goes through the One Ring....and in the Darkness Bind Them....poem.

    We when LW3 starts the TFTC attract mode. It even uses the TFTC sounds. Son really likes it, wants to move the room around and put the two pins side by side.

    #19 8 years ago

    I like Cirqus Voltaire, with the lengthy presentation, fireworks and the nice page transistion effects.

    Hate sound in attract mode. I feel sorry for the people working in places with games (pin + arcade) that stood untouched in the corner all day driving them nuts. Bothers me too when playing beside a game getting bored.

    I've been watching YouTube vids all night of gameplay on Centaur, and this feature defiantly stuck out.

    Absolutely love Cyclone.

    Yeah, I like this too. It flashes various playfield areas to correspond to the story. I often show this to newcomers to pinball who like LOTR.

    it certainly is annoying. Only machine I can't leave on while watching TV.
