Jurassic Park? Obviously WOZ is the highest ranked, but I don't think that makes it the best.

What do you think?

BBH is pretty good

BBH is pretty good

I don't know why, but BBH is one of my least favorite games. I play it, I just think the whole time, "why am I playing this?" I keep going back to it thinking I'll like it more. I just end up liking it less.

I didn't even think of Avatar. Good one.

TOTAN is listed at 3 ramps. But I can only recall the one ball entry ramp and then all the split offs. If it's only one ramp, it's definitely a favorite for "best."

I cant really think of any single player ramp games that strike me as being completely awesome (but still fun), so I will have to say Getawat. Also a fan of pinbot/jackbot and to a lesser extent BoP.

Edit: Strike BBB, make that HS2, probably tied with HS

High Speed sold pretty well.

CV is my personal pick.

CV is my personal pick.

CV has two ramp shots though.

BBH

Does BDK count?

HS2 was actually what made me think of the topic, but then I remembered it had 2 ramps.

#13 7 years ago

It's only listed at 1.

Cv has 2
Main ramp and acrobats

Bop has 2 as well

Jurassic Park for me hands down.

#18 7 years ago

Totally brain farted on BoP and hs2....no coffee this morning

#19 7 years ago

'63 Major League.

WOZ, JP, Avatar, and FGY.

Quoted from Frax:

Crap. Thread over.

Nope, Awesome game but Mini playfield also has a ramp , so 2 ramps on that one .

#23 7 years ago

Fish Tales. That's one ramp with two entrances and exits.

#24 7 years ago

DE Simpsons was pretty fun.

#26 7 years ago

Jackbot is the best I've played so far.

#27 7 years ago

Twister only has one, but it's a dandy.

We'll if you want to split hairs, it has three ramps. The evil monkey jackpot shot, under the mini playfield, is a mini ramp.

Other games with mostly hidden mini ramps include TSPP (4 ramps total), Ripley's (3 ramps total) and WOF (4 ramps total).

LW3 is an under rated DE pin

JP or MSF.

One ramp pins bug me. Hard for me to fathom $6K for TOTAN with its one ramp. It's the main thing preventing me from pursuing the game. $5K for BDK, same thing. One ramp games scream "what were they thinking?". Missd opportunities etc. Diverters prevent total disaster, but still.

FGY is so strong on so many levels that it's easier to forgive, but it also has the lowest price point if the more "desirable" games.

I'd probably still own CSI if it had a second ramp.

Anyone else feel like me?

X2!
I miss this game, can't wait to pick up another one.

3 ramps in 1!

Genuine question here.. Doesn’t family Guy have 3 ramps, including the upper play-field Lois ramp..

The Evil monkey jackpot shot which is similar to TZ lock shot..

Both of these shots have a ramp flap and both are elevated.

I’m curious what you guys think.
