For some reason I prefer pins with large secondary playfields. I.e. haunted house and black knight 2000. What are some others with noticeably large upper or lower playfields..

#2 6 years ago

Popeye, would be my guess.

#3 6 years ago

BK2000

Pistol Poker. It is literally half the size of the main playfield. Quite a bit bigger than the one on Popeye.

A couple other games with large upper playfields are Jolly park, and Metal Man.

Edit: I might as well throw in a mention of Farfalla, BK, and WOZ as well. Good sized uppers on those too....

I think zaccaria time machine.

Pharaoh has a large upper playfield. And the lower one is brutal.

Popeye, Medusa, Flash Gordon.

It is clear to me that Pistol Poker and BK2000 are the largest. They both look to take up at least 40% of the entire game's playing area.

Black Hole's lower playfield is huge.

Quoted from 85Txaggie:

Black Hole's lower playfield is huge.

Agreed, Black Holes lower pf is surprisingly large.

Agreed, Black Holes lower pf is surprisingly large.

I know, but it's not as large as Pistol Poker or BK2000. The "playable area" of the individual Black Hole and Haunted House playfields are just not that big; even though the playfield part itself extends way larger than most (for mounting purposes).

Now, if you COMBINE uppper+lower play areas, BH and HH would be 2nd and 3rd for largest TOTAL "play areas added up". However, Elektra would likely move up to 4th largest.

Technically, Medusa does not have an "upper" playfield. Nor does Grand Lizard.

I'm thinking Banzai Run certainly qualifies to be 1st on the list. I have added some others I didn't see mentioned yet. I'm sure I missed a few.

Here's how I see it so far LARGEST TO SMALLEST single extended "playfield area":

LARGEST
Banzai Run
Pistol Poker
BK2000 (counting the wire-form overhang)
Haunted House
Krull
Cerberus (Playmatic)
The Gumball Rally (Homebrew)
Black Knight
Jungle Lord
Pharaoh
Solar Fire
Flash Gordon
Elektra
BMX
Black Hole
Split Second
Lightning
Devil Riders
Pinball Champ '82
Soccer Kings
Whitewater
Time Machine (Zac)
Escape from the Lost World
Blackwater 100
Popeye
Iron Maiden
Hardbody
Vector
WPT
TSPP
Spirit
Critical Mass
City Slicker
Pinbot
Jackbot
IJ (Williams)
Jolly Park
WOZ
SMBMushWorld
WWFRR
The Shadow
SOF
TZ
CONGO
Family Guy
SHREK

The below are all relatively small beans but I still tried to rank them:
The Machine:BOP
Space Station
Jokerz!
Farfalla
Motordome
Johnny Mnemonic
Doctor Who? (not sure about this qualifying as an upper playfield)
SFII
Magic Castle
Zankor
RBION
Transporter the Rescue? (not sure about this qualifying as a playfield at all)
No Fear!
POTC
CV (not sure about this qualifying as a playfield at all)
SMALLEST

Snyper, the smallest would be cirqus voltaire

#15 6 years ago

Yeah, I don't know about stretching into that area. Is that really a "playable" area though.

Almost forgot about "The Gumball Rally" seen here:

Krull!
Could be the largest of all, not sure if it's bigger than Banzai.

#17 6 years ago

Krull looks to be as large as Cerberus. Nice find. Also adding Critical Mass.
