Quoted from jawjaw:
New member here. Got mine about a month ago and love it. It's stock but in great shape with only a little cab fade. I was pretty bad at first but have gotten much better. My high score is 456,890,070 where I got a couple of super jackpots Even my one boy is getting multiball and jackpots. Fixing my supercharger issues (ball hitting the top plastic cover) really helped in making the game more playable and fun. Had some issues with the display but reseating the connectors seems to have fixed it. I've also had air balls go back into the cabinet several times. Found out that I am missing deflector plates so I will track those down.
Beacon light loves to stick even though it has a new motor. It just takes a tap to get it spinning again so no biggie. Sometimes you have to bop it every time it comes on.
I plan on using LED lights with some extras to light up dark places - just have not had the time to experiment. I definitely think the gauges need to be lit as well as the back left corner. The mountain mod also looks right at home. Is that available anywhere or was that a one time offer?

Getaway was not my first pin, but my second. More came and my first is gone, but not The Getaway! Mine is stock with only the mod flashers, but they are cool. I sucked at it at first and then loved playing it. The pin taught me how to be good at pinball!
For fun keep track of how many games you play over time in the audits. I played the crap out of mine and put in 1000+ plays in the year and a half I have owned it.
Great to see your kids playing and getting mutliball too! When you are ready, I would recommend T2 or WCS to add to it. WCS is a no brainer if your kids like pinball and T2 is fun if you are OK with the PG13 theme. I mean come on, just one? Pinballs are like Gremlins or rabbits!
Take your time and enjoy the ride. The start of Redline Mania is my favorite start of a Wizard Mode in pinball and I cant wait to get to it again!
