    Want to buy a Creech ramp set from them but it’s expensive and I’ve never heard of these guys until now. Thoughts?

    #2 3 years ago

    A big vendor at shows. They're legit.

    #3 3 years ago

    Great! Bought from them many times. Larry is a great guy.

    #4 3 years ago

    They are a very legit vendor. I purchased a plastic set from them and it was out of stock and they refunded my money within a few hours. I have also purchased other parts from them as well.

    Larry is the real deal. I waited till allentown to get my ramps. Saved on shipping and theres usually a show discount which saves you a bit.

    #6 3 years ago

    Bought a full set of ramps for BOP with no issues. As solid as they come.

    #7 3 years ago

    Larry is a personal friend of mine. He’s a great guy.

    Satrship Fantasy I believe took over for....shit I can't remember the big seller before **pinballramps.com?...anyway it was a trusted name before and still is. I have never bought but yearly I pick up some ramps from them for a friend and it's the good stuff.

    EDIT: **Pinball Inc

    We all love Larry here in AZ.

    Starship Fantasy took over for Pinball Inc. which was run by James (not sure of his last name) who I believe was located in Georgia.

    I bought a set of Taxi ramps from Starship and they are great. They are a lot thicker than the originals.
    I even messed up one of the decals and called to buy a new one, and they sent it no charge.

    #12 3 years ago

    Larry is a good guy and great for our hobby.

    #14 3 years ago

    Bought a set of plastics last week. Arrived in just a few days. No problems at all!

    #15 3 years ago

    I as well bought from them at the shows. .

    #16 3 years ago

    I’ve ordered from them. Larry was great.

    #17 3 years ago

    But with confidence, Larry is great to deal with. I buy from him at the shows if I can wait but when I need ramps shipped, they come well packed and fast!

    #18 3 years ago

    I bought some STTNG ramps and stuff and they were packaged very well and shipped quickly. They have some hard to find stuff. Very glad they exist.

    #19 3 years ago

    I bought my Funhouse ramp set from them. I think I paid cash for them at Allentown and they shipped it to me for show price. Show discounts traditionally have been very good. If you are going to Allentown you should see if they will be there.

    #20 3 years ago

    Bought a set for my bop. The finsh wasn't 100%, had them exchanged with no problems!
    Now if only they made ramps for bsd...

    #21 3 years ago

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! I have no worries about ordering from them now. I have the ramp set sitting in my cart but close to $500 with shipping! Still might just pull the trigger but I might see if I can grab them at Allentown or possibly Pintastic at a discounted price.

    I don't think they were at Pintastic this year. Hopefully they will be next year, I don't think I can make it to Allentown this year.

    Purchased a set of ramps for Police Force from them 2 years ago. Great products and good buying experience.

    #24 3 years ago

    I have a set of new ramps ready to go in my Creech. Well worth the money!

    Are yours busted up or just looking to improve?

    #25 3 years ago

    Have done business with Larry at Starship in past and would have no problem doing it again. Love my new shiny non busted ramps on Cyclone.

    #26 3 years ago

    I’ve bought a few things from em. Good stuff, no issues

    Bought a set of EATPM ramps from them, he's a good guy and has good products!

    #29 3 years ago

    Damn, I dont need anything right now but after all these great reviews I want to order something...

    #30 3 years ago

    Are the Starship Fantasy ramps the same as the ramps sold on Marco Specialties? I (for some reason) thought it was same product.

    I bought my Taxi ramp on Marco, but wondering if there is any difference from Starship. All these positive comments make me want to make sure i support Starship.

    #31 3 years ago

    I've purchased several plastic sets at TPF from him. Very nice guy. I also bought and had shipped a backglass, packaged great and arrived safe and sound.

    Just bought a swirl ramp for TOTAN from Starship Fantasy. It came in with excessive mold marks on it, so I took some pictures and sent Larry an email. He couldn't have been better -- he owned the problem, he flame polished some in his stock the next day (these ramps are tricky, so perfection is not expected), and sent another one out with a return shipping label for the first one. The second one was much better and I'm excited to install it. Honest, straightforward, and reasonable.

    Larry is a great guy and true assett to pin community. Problem, he fixes it. Full set of Totan ramps were perfect.

    Marco sources their repro ramps from Starship.

    #36 3 years ago

    They usually are a vendor at Expo. So, if time isn't of the essence, you can always buy a set there.

    #37 3 years ago

    just got a whitewater dome from them, great products! rest assured!

    #38 3 years ago

    Larry is platinum. Totan ramps are a+

    Does BayAreaAmusements source ramps at S-F?

    #40 3 years ago

    WOW. I can't thank you enough for all your kind words. It means a lot to me. Bay Area Amusements, Marco Specialties and Little Shop of Games all get their ramps from me but not all of their ramps are mine. They have some older NOS ramps that I haven't made yet. Whether you purchase from them or me, you will always get the same level of service. Problems are rare and I usually handle them myself no matter who you bought from. It is important that everything goes correctly every time. I have reduced the number of shows I do since my motorhome burned down. I will not be able to make Allentown this year. I am planning on doing NW Pin Festival, York and Chicago Expo.

    #41 3 years ago

    There awesome got my Party Zone super-sonic-robotic-comic chrome head from them!!!

    Larry your products are a game saver. The Police Force ramps I got from Marco (your ramps) turned out fantastic and I had no problem installing the decals and transferring the hardware from my old ramps.

    Here's what my original 31 year old ramps looked like before. Yikes!
