Alien powerloader fight is always raises my heart rate. That and Medieval madness when Im on the last castle .
Many good choices mentioned but trying to melt the witch on WOZ is one of the best if not the best for me. Two ball multi ball, must make a series of shots with 2 balls you lose one ball your done. Very exciting.
My success rate is probably 10-15%. Only managed it maybe 3 or 4 times. Just had another chance 15 minutes ago, made castle shot but lost ball going for ramp for kill shot. Crap.
Making a five-in-a-line after steering the ball to the ball return successfully multiple times in a row. Nothing compares!
On LotR, collecting jackpots in order to get that multiplier up to the big numbers is the one that does it for me.
Completing Fellowship Multiball in LotR. Hearing Gandalf cry "You shall not pass!!" makes completing the challenge so much more exciting than it is on its own!
Everything goes off and pressure is on to just make the shots. Intensity ramps up even more if you're down to one ball: do or die time.
Late to the party ...
Stacking 5x playfield and white water multiball on wh2o. Pressure is on to score jackpots and very satisfying when you do.
Not that hard fun also fun: the stiff o meter.
White water’s vacation planner complete and than start a multiball.
Never had the chance to play a BBH, seen you post about it in a good way a few times now, need to try and find one here in the UK.
I think you could categorize the adrenaline rush into two categories...
2. The adrenaline to nailing a very specific shot that makes you go ‘yes!’ When you hit it (Khan triple jackpot in Shadow or hole in one in No Good Gophers).
I am a self confessed Pinball Rush junkie !
Got a BiBLE delivered yesterday.
Just in time for my birthday today
Thanks to everyone who added their adrenaline rush stories. I can relate to them all! What a great hobby we have!
It seems the sum total of everyone's experience is this: Steve Ritchie is not just the King of Flow, but also the Duke of Adrenaline, with a number of his games being referred to in this thread.
Thanks also to pinmister who posted a link to the Star Wars video. Interestingly, Steve Ritchie ends the clip with these words: "Star Wars attacks your senses in virtually everything that it does." In order words, it gets your adrenaline pumping!
That hyperdrive accelerator is something else. I think some of the negative press SW has received on Pinside has got to have come from some people who have only played the pro. Either that, or they haven't been able to put two or more silver balls into a premium's or LE's accelerator. Once you have put two or more balls in there, you're hooked for life! It is difficult to put more than one ball in the accelerator. I've tried to repeat the four ball event which I began this thread with, but after 100 games I haven't been able to yet. I've come close, yet didn't make it. But I'm going to keep trying!
The one time I made it to Enterprise Amok on star trek. Sweating profusely. Took about 20 minutes to calm down afterwards. Thought I was having a panic attack
"IT'S SHOW TIME!"
I know it's just the start of multi-ball, but hear that always gets my heart pumping.
Well, I hope one day to play it!
I’m very happy to play the horde when i’m in a good day...
LMS seems unreachable for me.
Another adrenaline rush in pinball? What do you need to get an adrenaline rush in pinball? What kind of combinations?
Another one to add is the super jackpot shot in Fish Tales. Really hard to even light it and more difficult to make the dangerous shot while keeping multiball going. Cool thing is that if you get one at the last second right after draining the ball that ends multiball, it's 200 million! Did that last weekend and more than doubled my high score.
Two more shots, both on the same game are always exciting to hit--if you can. The Ricochet shot, because you have to set it up with two consecutive ramps then almost immediately hit a tight orbit to get it (which is rewarded with a cool callout from Clint), and hitting the last shot to make 3 arrests--almost seems impossible--on Dirty Harry.
Yeah gotta say 30 miiilllion bsd and amazingly the hyper loop swle I had no idea I was gonna like it so much. In fact I bashed the game like everyone else in the beginning. Now I do love alien but not for the adrenaline.
