I love ramp shots. My pick would be Metallica. Not sure if it's that ramp material but I love not only the feel and the look of those ramps but that rattle sound so good. What are your favs?

I love games with ramps too....... probably the most "satisfying" ramp shot I can think of is hitting the right ramp on AC/DC with Jam,Album, & Tour multiballs all stacked @ once ....... the acrobat shot to the right that flows around & then up & back down the long wire form on C.V always gives me a great feeling as well as its a little hard to make it all the way around on mine sometimes

Agree on the acrobat ramp for CV. That's just a lovely shot that feels great.

Strange Science also has another super satisfying ramp shot when you have 4 locked balls in the atom smasher then hit the first ball locked & it acts as a newton ball setup putting one ball into the Jacobs ladder crossover & if you can get another ball up there onto 3rd flipper & hit the ramp to atom smasher again without draining that is HUGE!!

ST Warp ramp
LOTR Legolas ramp
DI all 3 ramps
XMEN PRO iceman & storm ramps
MET both ramps
SM right ramp
GOT PRO stark ramp

Dirty Harry left ramp for SJ with the gun

If you like the feel of the metal ramps on Metallica, you should give Terminator 3 a shot. Love the sound they make!

GI as it changes through the island, unique and classic.

In a game that punishes you to no end, the leftmost orbit ramp shot on BSD feels smooth and silky. It's the relief from the rest of the dissonant shots in the game. That relief feels great, because for a split second, you're safe from draining.

Stern Star Trek warp ramp. Man when its dialed in and you rep like 5,6,7 of em in a row, what a feeling!

Quoted from Eskaybee:

ST Warp ramp
LOTR Legolas ramp
DI all 3 ramps
XMEN PRO iceman & storm ramps
MET both ramps
SM right ramp
GOT PRO stark ramp

Good call on all these. I would add the Wh20 left waterfall ramp, too.

For me at the moment it's the ramp shot on TSPP that leads up to the upper playfield off the top right flipper. I've always struggled with it on my game and I've been finally hitting it lately.

#13 1 year ago

Flash Gordon- center ramp.

#14 1 year ago

Kiss right ramp. A bitch to hit, but when you do...

#15 1 year ago

Love the upper flipper to ramp shots on dialed in, whirlwind and games like that.... very satisfying especially for super jackpots . Also the right orbit/ramp shot on dialed in just feels really good to hit.

#17 1 year ago

IJ, right ramp, especially during jackpot!

#18 1 year ago

I liked the ramp shot on The Getaway, when the supercharger is lit for loops. Ball gets cooking speed-wise and then bam, shoots down the return to the inlane/flipper. Or during supercharger mode when you get one loop, then the return. Bounce the ball over the upheld flipper to the right and repeat a few times in a row was especially fun too.

Agreed. Insanity Falls on White Water is just plain fun.

This is the correct answer. The thread can now be closed.

Mousin Around, after setting up the shot, the right ramp sends the ball behind the pf in the left side, then spits it out into a wiggly ramp on the right side.

Also when the target sequence is complete and the mini pf drops to allow you the quick upwards loop in the middle.

#22 1 year ago

Also, TOM right ramp when the magnet magnet grabs the ball on the return and drops it into a different return chute.

#23 1 year ago

STTNG left ramp for warp shot....that shot always was a challenge.

#24 1 year ago

I really like the new fork-lift shot, into the hyper-loop, on the Star Wars premium/le. Hard shot, but very satisfying.

#25 1 year ago

First one that came to mind was the right ramp on TOM that you can only shoot by making the left orbit. That just flows amazingly. The center ramp on TOM is also pretty cool.

Another vote for the Legolas ramp on LOTR. Love how a perfectly solid shot with no energy loss comes screaming back at you. The ball seems to defy the laws of physics (but doesn’t) and I always wonder how it doesn’t go flying off into the glass. Every micrometer of every curve just seems perfectly engineered.

Agreed. It's barely a ramp but it's such a bitch to hit with any consistency that makes it oh so satisfying.

Another vote for Congo's volcano ramp shot!

#30 1 year ago

Banzai Run is a favorite of mine. I like how this ramp crosses over the entire back of the playfield. The accompanied light show is a piece of pinball perfection.

They don't count as a single shot, but I would also like to mention the ramps and divertors on The Shadow. Very fun to shoot combo's on and still a unique feature after 23+ years. The sound of a ball hitting the metal of these ramps is very unique and instantly recognizable.

#31 1 year ago

Where's all the high praise for the hole in one slam ramp?

Fan of TAF's left ramp for jackpot.

#32 1 year ago

Congo. Volcano.

#36 1 year ago

Any ramp shot that I actually make.

#38 1 year ago

Agreed..t3 ramps sound cool and the middle B ramp is way satisfying

#44 1 year ago

A lot of great input. I'll need to check out T3! Getting DI today so will check those out soon! If I remember correctly they did feel very good.

#45 1 year ago

Doctor Who loop ramp - it is tough to get the ball to the upper left flipper, and your shot has to be *perfect* but hitting that loop a couple of times in succession (best I can do is really satisfying. then it is TERROR when the ball breaks free to inevitably drain down the right outlane. This game is a bastard!

#46 1 year ago

The spiral ramp shot in TOTAN has a nice flow to it.

#47 1 year ago

Because I've been playing it a lot lately, I'm going with the mega-million ramp shot on Radical!

#48 1 year ago

BSD, left ramp.

#49 1 year ago

Whirlpool ramp on CFTBL
