I’m a sucker for ramps with targets. And if it’s coded well, it’s icing on the cake.

GNR has 2 ramps with targets that feel so so good. The right one is probably my favorite in all of pinball, especially if fed from a right loop combo or hitting it for a ‘lights’ double jackpot. The left ramp target, while on the mini playfield, can still be hit from the bottom flipper and is another feel good shot when the lights double jackpot is lit.

Spider-Man has the venom ramp which is another sweet ramp target in pinball, and fed from the upper flipper at that.

IMDN is awesome with the 3-shot bullseye. I love hitting that ramp as hard as possible into the bullseye. And if it’s on the mummy super, it’s special bonus.

I even dig the starscream ramp target in TFLE. With starscream rotating, nail the ball past him, then BAM! Game vibrates crazy.

I’m surprised it’s not used more often. Anyone else dig these kinds of shots and are there any others in pinball?

I know people hate it (and it isn’t a target, but a saucer instead) but I loved Motordome when I had it. It needed some music and/or callouts to stay as the motorcycle noise got super repetitive, but building everything up and prepping for the shot, hitting the right ramp around to the upper flipper, and hitting that across the game shot to the saucer for 3 million points was one of the most satisfying shots I’ve ever hit in any game.

Oh man how could I forget Aragorn ramp. It was my first pin and had it for 8 years. Good one.

Does the right ramp on Ghostbusters (Pro) count?

Is there even a target up there?

Even though it moves, how about Nascar, Dale Jr, Grand Prix on the left ramp,?

Wonder if the AIQ tower ramp shot would count? Technically it’s not a target, it’s a magnet. But still a sweet design shot.

Hey there! Got a moment?
