Delta Ramp *during* Borg Multiball. 3x Jackpot ftw
I like the Delta ramp any time. Best ramp in all of pinball. I tend to find myself just playing Warp Factors because the orbit/ramp combo is so fun. It's actually kind of a letdown in SM that the orbit hits the gate unless it's already in a combo sequence. Eventually you get "super orbits" or something like that and then those crummy gates stay up, then SM gets *really* fun.
The other day on STTNG I got the Borg mb 3x super jackpot and "the picard maneuver" callout simultaneously. Never had done that in 10 years of ownership. I think the reason that shields are recharged from the spinner is to encourage the direct 3x SJP shot, genius.
I love getting the O shot on doctor who.
That upper flipper ramp is sooo sweet when you can combo all three letters to spell WHO
What about hitting the right ramp three times on Cyclone for the progressive jackpot?
I'll give you Insanity Falls on Whitewater but my absolute favorite shot on that machine is slamming the Spine Chiller ramp first and then hitting Insanity Falls with the upper flipper. It comes up that ramp so f'n fast that you have to be in perfect pinball zen to make the shot (or lucky).
I'll help bring this backfrom the dead too.
I agree with most about the WH2O, but for me, its hitting it the 3x in a row when multiball fires up, such a juggle to come out with three and get them back up there.
My second vote was also mentioned - SM venom ramp. However i find it most gratifying to hit it combo'd from the bottom right flipper, around the loop, then up the ramp. That ball comes around the corner with lightning speed, and to hit the upp flipper > ramp is damn near 100% luck!
I agree, especially the left Castle ramp. Oursler really nailed the smooth factor on that one. It makes that nice big half circle before quickly returning to the R flipper. And the entrance is so narrow which makes the shot all the more satisfying.
In no particular order:
Metallica's heavy metal ramps, super smooth for combos
Ball and chain shot (on left side) in Monster Bash, as mentioned, incredibly fast and smooth
Tron's upper flipper Gem shot combo around to the left flipper and into arcade for end of the line jackpot, now that's satisfying.
Cyclone does have great ramps with curves and progressive jackpots, etc.
Whitewater is probably the king of all great ramp games
I like hitting both ramps at the same time for the crossover bonus during TAXI's multiball.
