    Well curiosity got the better of me and so I decided it’s time to sound off on some positives of pinball! What are some of your favorite shots or features in games you have played? Shots that make you smile every time you hit them. Features that you thought showed ingenuity or that are just plain fun. Honestly I have a ton I enjoy but I will just name a few. The ring shot in LOTR. The shifter on getaway. The canon on Black rose. The Death Star kill shot on Star Wars. Everything about Williams Indy. Knocking down the castle in medieval madness. Sound off about what you like!!

    I like the swinging target on Magic Clock and River Boat.

    Ive been playing a lot of Taxi lately. I really love the multi ball and trying to make the express lanes in sequence.

    On Harlem Globetrotters, making the standup for a special, an extra ball, and open the gate all in one shot.

    And the music!

    more simply, i like stand up targets in a row, even more when a "gift" is behind :

    harlem : the hole, for points & special
    MET : multiball & magnet
    8BDLX : points, special
    dolly parton : points, EB, special
    and much much more

    also captive ball, as in mystic...

    Danesi lock on Total Nuclear Annihilation. Ending a string of combos with a satisfying *thunk* into the scoop for End of the Line jackpot on TRON: Legacy (Pro). The abundance of drop targets on World Poker Tour.

    I love the 3 level elevator mini pf in Doctor Who.

    TOM spinning trunk is great.

    I loves me a great light show - jackpot and super jackpot in Getaway are amazing. Express bonus and million point shot in Taxi as well.

    IJA - Center ball lock

    I Freeking love this shot! So first you have the bank of drop targets to knock down and on most games they'll cause exciting and unpredictable air balls. Some people don't like airballs but they just don't like fun. Then after you've survived an air ball or two you get to shoot into the most satisfying hook style scoop shoot around. It cracks right into the hole like Indy's whip.

    But the fun isn't done because now your ball rolls into one of the sexiest looking ball locks in all of pinball.

    Nailing a spinner on a machine with chimes.

    Physical ball locks where you can see the ball sitting there, waiting for you to get multi-ball going.
    Even better if it's able to be stolen in multi-player games.

    I just recently came to own a BtDK and the crane shot is sooooo fun to hit! I guess the same goes for BM66 then.

    #21 8 months ago

    The first multiball jackpot shot! Side ramp on High Speed. An oldie but a goodie.

    Quoted from skyrex:

    Shots that make you smile every time you hit them.

    Shots that put a huge smile on my face....

    1. Batman Dark Knight-Hitting the Crane with a shaker motor
    2. Star Trek-Hitting the Warp ramp over three consecutive times in a row
    3. Star Wars-Blowing up the Death Star
    4. No Good Gophers-Hitting that Hole In One
    5. STTNG- Hitting several shots with cannons during Battle Simulation
    6. Avengers-Hitting Black Widow ramp repeatedly.

    Man just talking about these shots put's a smile on my face.

    Jungle Lord's Double Trouble targets
    Solar Fire and Grand Lizard's Flash Bank drop targets
    Mr. and Mrs. Pac-Man's skill shot (probably one of the toughest ones ever).

    I always found the Goldeneye Satellite shot to be super satisfying.

    Multiball double ramp shot on Taxi is pretty fab.
