Quoted from Ronnie1114:

Once again no love ever for Hotdoggin! Only one thread ever created about it. Looks like a hoot to play.

Hot Doggin' IS fun to play - a great classic Bally! I've got a decent one... but you are right, you don't seem them too often.

No Future Spa? Art is either love it or hate it (I like it) but the gameplay is fun.

I like Flight 2000 and Big Game.

Stellar Wars from what I can recall would be my fave wide body !

Guess I was really into some of the more less popular games including wide bodies back when I was under 10 yrs old and began my pinball addiction.

Space Invaders
Hotdoggin
Stellar Wars (my fave wide)

Now I haven't played any of these since I was in the 4th or 5th grade , I wonder how I'd like them today ?

I do recall Indiana Jones & Judge Dredd a bit more and I just couldn't get into them though they were neat and had lots to do I just didn't choose them over other games at the time which were available.

I'm going to add the williams joust to the list
a lot of people may chastise the game for not having a very deep rule set, but in 2-player mode there's enough there to keep things interesting and strategies to score well and screw over your opponent at the same time.

nothing's more satisfying than collecting the bonus on a bank of the 3 drop-downs just before your opponent, which causes their's to reset (especially if they've got the 200K bonus lit up and are 1 target away from completing it

Circus and Genie have the art and have some tough shots.

Genie with a Pascal mpu (skill shot, second chance ball, etc.), super flipper coils in the bottom flippers, and a stronger coil in the bottom pop to match the top ones. It's a totally different machine from stock (which rocks already), and it is really, really fun. The wife calls her my girlfren.

I recently acquired a Road Show based on having played it a ton when I was in grad school mid-90's. Has a lot of sentimental value based of the friends I used to play it with. I'm happy to report that I enjoy the game play now as much as I enjoy the memories associated with it.

Other Widebodies I would want to own -
Haunted House
Indiana Jones
Twilight Zone
Black Hole
Judge Dredd

DMD/modern = IJ

Classic = Flight 2k

Classic stern, that I always enjoy. Easy to understand but challenging rule set. Quick games that pull you in for one more try. Great spinner shot at the lower right. Tough multi ball that actually feels like an accomplishment to start. Fast, avoids the floaty widebody feel of some.

Aliens and full throttle!

Quoted from policano:

What are the top 5 Wide Body pins? I recently picked up one and really like them. I find it a little weird to play my others lol. I'm happy I have one.

Not many good ones to pick from. Star Trek is the best by a wide margin though.

And of course. BIG GAME!!
