Okay, I don't know what Pinside etiquette is but I don't see an Owner's Club thread for Night Rider EM and that is a damn shame.

The best of the two Night Riders, of course. I grew up in my Grandma's basement playing this same Night Rider. When she moved out of her house and offered it to anyone in the family for free, I was the only one who stepped up. My poor friend helped me get it in the second-floor bedroom in my college house and it was awesome! After a few years of hibernation in my parents' house, it came home to me for good and I hope to pass it on someday.

Share the Night Rider spinner/chime love!

PS - If I'm wrong and another exists, please downvote the hell out of this thread.

That playfield looks damn good especially considering it was in grandma’s basement and a college house. Bally spinner’s and chimes from the 70’s are awesome. Doesn’t take much effort to keep them spinning/sounding great. Congrats on keeping it in the family.

Thanks. It has a few scrapes but they aren't too bad. I'll probably try and touch it up after I practice on another playfield.

I stand corrected! Thanks man. I only missed it by 4 months!

No worries, not very active which is too bad as it is a really fun game that sounds great.

Yes! My other favorite is how it double chimes when you collect the double bonus. Ding ding da-ding. Ding ding da-ding.

Does yours also have the slight pause at the end before it gives you the final point amount on the bonus?

I don't think mine does that.

I did some clean up and light replacement last night and noticed my spinner inserts, pops, advance bonus stand up, and inlane inserts are all staying on. Is this a wire or relay issue?
