I have reached Victory Laps in LOTR, JP, and ST and it is always a rush!

What other pins have them? Which was first? What is the newest pin with them?

Make a list here!

I think hook does after you score a jackpot.

I can't find any confirmation on No Fear.

TSPP is one. Any more??

Hobbit Smaug multiball, and the wizard modes - into the fire, barrel escape, and battle of five armies

TSPP! I don't currently have a pin that has them but they’re oh so satisfying.

Who was the First? I see three Data East machines from 1992, so this is clearly a Data East/Stern thing.

Does anyone know if DE Checkpoint has Victory Laps? It would make sense since it is a racing theme. Adding to the list, R&B (DE, 1993) definitely has a Victory Lap after you earn a replay.

Yes, Checkpoint has them too.
Stern Grand Prix (or Nascar) also have them.

OK, Banzai Run victory laps in '88 may have been the first.

Medieval Madness victory laps/loops are a great way to really rack up a score after winning BFTK.

Adding to the list -

Attack from Mars
Game of Thrones
Indianapolis 500
The Walking Dead

Hook has a victory lap as well...i have owned Hook for 22 years so its a definite...Hook also has a combo shot ..shoot the right ramp then the left ramp then the vuk and you get a combo shot reward

Stern SW's also has victory laps when completing the mini wizard planet objectives. What a rush to have a six ball multiball, hearing "Go For Super Jackpot", then nailing it.

#20 4 years ago

Nascar has a victory laps

What are we considering a victory lap as I think it seems to vary by manufacturer. On my Data Easts (SW and LW3) a victory lap is a single shot that's lit after you score a replay. That's it, no laps, not more that one per game.
