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
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
