I love ramps in a game. Love DM, TFTC, GNR, SM, LOTR, and especially the three in MB and CC. Any others that are good and have more than three in a game for great flow? Will add poll once we get top choices.

Batman Forever has four ramps, plus a cool habitrail for the ball lock that goes right over the apron.

#3 7 years ago

TFTC has some of the best ramps. I love the trick shot jump from the inverted right ramp to the left ramp return.

WH2O has a ramp or two

Hey,

In regard to sheer number, there's really WhiteWater and then everybody else...

Jd has a good bit of ramps haven't had enough time on it yet to judge how good they are.

#8 7 years ago

IMO Best ramp shots in pinball.

#9 7 years ago

WH20, for sure. Not just the number, but the variety and integration into the game's theme.

#11 7 years ago

Radical! has an interesting array of ramps. Not sure how many, but enough to fit the theme.

#12 7 years ago

Maybe three (tucked away, somewhere)

#13 7 years ago

TSPP has four ramps

#14 7 years ago

Motor Dome. Quite possibly the biggest ramp shot ever...

#15 7 years ago

Second on BW, that game is super underrated!

#16 7 years ago

Airborne.

Best is probably whitewater.

#17 7 years ago

Judge Dredd, lots if ramps and loops with awesome flow.

#18 7 years ago

NGG: 4 ramps. Crazy good flow.

#19 7 years ago

How many ramps does The Pinball Circus have? I've never seen one in person but with as many levels as it has, it has to have a large number of them.

#20 7 years ago

TSPP has 3 ramps......WH2O has 4

#21 7 years ago

Finally got to play Radical at PAPA. Bunch of weird shots/ramps in that game very original.

#22 7 years ago

should be roller coaster tycoon !?

Lotsa ramps and w2o still sucks, that troll should divert the ball into a real pin. Best use of ramps is like t2 where you csn actually get a rhythm going.

You need some skill for WH20 . T2 = nice flow but stuff all else.

#25 7 years ago

1. Moes ramp
2. Treehouse ramp
3. Garage ramp
4. Couch ramp

TSPP doesn't have flow ramps but it does have 4 of them.

Garage is a VUK....hardly what you would call a ramp.

#28 7 years ago

Blackwater 100 has quite a few ramps.

#29 7 years ago

TOM?? TOTAN?? Bally radical are awesome, wh20, shadow with diverters

#30 7 years ago

I bought a spare and it's a called a ramp, it's actually a 2 part jump ramp.

The Treehouse ramp also goes to the same VUK as the garage ramp, so Simps either has 2 or 4 ramps...

It would either have 3 or 4 ramps, no way it could be 2. You have the right ramp all by itself and then you have the couch ramp all by itself. So if you want to count treehouse and garage together since they share a vuk you would be at 3. They might share a vuk but the garage and treehouse are two distinct shots so in my opinion that would put it at 4.

Wh2o has an up kicker too so it must have 5 ramps??

I agree.

Doesn't WOZ have 3 ramps???

Yep it has 3....minus 2

#37 7 years ago

Airborne has four ramps: two scoop ramps, a lift ramp, and a crazy steep ramp. It also has some of the coolest wireforms in all of pinball.

#38 7 years ago

I really enjoy hitting back-to-back Super Vengeances on The Shadow. It's only two ramps, but with the diverters it feels like more, and you can get a great rhythm going, slapping the second button as you go.

SUPER VENGEANCE IS YOURS

#39 7 years ago

If you're going to count the VUK on Simpsons Pinball Party as a ramp, then I should be able to count each of the four ways the ball can enter the lower playfield in my Haunted House as a ramp. Add to that the standard metal ramp to the upper playfield and the VUK to the upper playfield, and that would give 6.

#40 7 years ago

Four seems to be the magic "maximum" number that works in games. Batman Forever, Baywatch, Airborne, Demolition Man, Judge Dredd, and Viper Night Drivin' are the machines that I can think of offhand that all have four.

I particularly enjoy Demo Man, Batman Forever, and VND as the three machines with the best ramp "flow", however all of them only allow the use of three of their four ramps in that flow. Regardless, those are my favs

Totan,Radical,WH20. I own them so I am biased,honorable mention to the Shadow.

#42 7 years ago

Check this out . . .
1. Distaster Drop
2. Spine Chiller
3. Insanity Falls
4. Whirlpool
5. Bigfoot Bluff
6. Upper to lower ramp
7. Wireform shooter-lane ramp

If you break one of those ramps in two that's 8 ramps!

TotAN has only one ramp. Granted, maybe the best ramp in pinball.
