Hey everyone, I managed to locate a "Mountain Mod" for My Getaway High Speed 2. Neat little history behind the mod too. There were only 6 mountains orignially made ONLY for prototype machines. Well Pinball Toys had located one of the prototypes and made licensed reproduction mountains and a limited amount of them. I found one for sale and will be installing it tonight! Stay tuned for pics! (Pics below for an example)

I was able to snag one a little while ago too. I repainted mine...

Here's a mod I made for my Getaway...it REALLY makes the stoplight look great.

That looks great!

Thanks....

I also added a TON of lighting mods. The pin cleaned up pretty good. Added custom plastic protectors as well. (designed/cnc machined myself).

Yeah i need to add some lighting to mine too. Mine has LEDs throughout, but i dont like how the rear hairpin ramp in the back left corner is so dark. I planned on eventually seeing if i can find someone that has lit that corner up somehow. I kind of want to put a spotlight shining on the mountain like the picture above.

Check out this pinside post....a lot of great ideas there.

I posted several pics on the light nods I added to my Getaway...including lighting up the upper PF, under the ramp.

I love it.
Kind of reminds me of the old Himalayan Mountain ride at Astro World.
Makes a lot more sense for the tunnel shot to actually have a tunnel.

And i just snaffled the last one.....MAN am i glad i spotted this thread been chasing a mountain mod for ages, THANKS to the OP, cheers mate

No problem mancave! Glad a couple of people snagged one as well! BTW i know they said (Second) on them which the blemishes they talk about are VERY small. A touchup with some white paint on mine (literally the size of a grain of sugar) and good as new! I had to trim the super charger ramp a touch but nothing an avid pin collector cant do!

#17 4 years ago

It would be cool if someone made a new version. I would like to see it wrap around the supercharger and have a more mountain looking top. It would be a fun project but I don't have the time or the talent for something like that.

#18 4 years ago

I hope there will be another run of this mod in the future. Count me in, I want one. ^^

New version! New version! (or more of the old version!)
