    What are your favorite individual shots or creative features from pins.
    At the top of my list would be : The Mist Ball from Dracula
    The Hang On from Dr Who -- It is a cool representation of going around a cliff edge at high speed
    The shot under the right upper flipper (held up) on Star trek 2013
    The reverse flipper mode from Ghostbusters (I think it is Gozer the Gozerian) .. this one made me think I
    was having a stroke the first time it happened
    What are some other cool ones?

    Hitting any shot "on purpose" in any game is pretty interesting for me, because it happens so rarely! Yeah, I pretty much suck at pinball, but still I play.

    Upper lock on Spirit, lock on Nine Ball.

    Volcano ramp on Congo is incredibly satisfying. The ramp is awesome, and sound effect WHOOSH is even better.

    As for cool feature. I really like the wand from Pinball Magic. Having the ball walk across the bottom of it to get to the lock and also having to drop a ball in a whole to progress is pretty cool theme integration.

    I don't know why but back to back Black Widow shots in Avengers is pretty rewarding feeling.

    Helicopter shot in special force where you bomb the village.

    Insanity Falls on White Water is pretty sweet. Especially if you hit three in a row when starting multiball!!

    Good call especially during 5X playfield. Even better when doing it in a competitive match!

    I'm a sucker for the Queen's Chamber on Centaur...nothing like two star rollovers and a captive all into inlane drops.

    The Shadow has some interesting shots. The Kahn shot and the upper loop are hard to find and always feel too early or too late for me. The upper playfield is weird because you don't flip to hit the ball. It's like opposite of your natural muscle memory. The ramps are also strange how short and steep they are and of course their giant controllable diverters are something special.

    Upper playfield on Banzai Run is full of gravity defying challenges.
