    Stern did a fantastic job with the retro Ghostbusters theme.

    Now it is time, time to go back to the future.

    If Stern does a Back To The Future pinball what would you like to see? What features should be included, any ideas for toys and layout?

    If you mess up, you create an alternate reality where the Cubs are great and Biff is the presi....

    There can never be enough BTTF pin threads and I won't believe that this won't be happening. *stamps feet*

    OK here are some of my ideas. I have been wanting a machine with four flippers and dueling ramps on each side for years now. You will hit the upper flippers by wrapping balls around the orbit shot either left or right. The ramps will be offset so you can make a full orbit shot. Each time you hit a ramp on either side you advance a year in the time sequence and try to get back to the year 1985 to obtain a 6 ball chaotic multi-ball. There will be magnets under the playfield throwing the balls in every which direction as well. Another idea is to have a back-lit panel illumination on the backboard with lightning striking and a clock tower that shakes like the castle on MM when you hit the mode. I also have the idea of either eliminating the upper pop bumper cluster and just do a two pop bumper cluster on lower left side of playfield that adds an element of surprise and actually does something. Shaker motor is a must with lightning striking and car accelerating to 88 mph mode. Tons of potential-this is a fun theme to think about the possibilities.
