    So is there a particular mode that you can play a million times and never get sick of? That mode that every time it starts it gets your adrenalin flowing or puts a big smile on your face?

    I'll start - mine is Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls," one of the crank it up modes. I love the opening animation, the sound/shaker effect when you hit a shot, the ability to make combos. If I'm in the zone and I start this mode it's pure pinball joy.

    What's yours?

    Hoard mode in TWD. One of the best modes in pinball. Hard to get to so keeps you coming back to play the machine time after time.

    Metamorphosis on Bride Of Pinbot. The pin goes dark and the heart beat really is awesome to watch. I never tire of it.

    Super Seance on TAF. It was pure genius to use the knocker in that way.

    #7 1 year ago

    Thumpin' Time ya'll!

    Scared Stiff. Completing the Stiff-O-Meter, game goes dark, all coils fire, game goes nuts and the start of Monster Multiball.

    #10 1 year ago

    So far Wonkas Office and Oompa Loompa MB are awesome and two of my favorites ever.

    #11 1 year ago

    All the modes in LOTR are fun to play. Hard to get bored of that variety!

    #12 1 year ago

    Fear of the Dark in Iron Maiden... it’s perfect. Hit a ramp or loop, playfield lights up and rip a spinner. Lights go red, rinse and repeat. Never gets old!

    #13 1 year ago

    Tidal wave mode on Dialed In! Love the surf music and such a satisfying shot when you nail the side ramp on a combo! H2 whoa Babee!!!!

    #14 1 year ago

    So far all the modes in BKSOR.

    #16 1 year ago

    Sperm Attack (FGY)

    #18 1 year ago

    Tommy Scoring mode on Tommy. This is the mode with the blinders on, which is one of the coolest things in pinball (IMO).

    #19 1 year ago

    Disco Mode in Deadpool I always enjoy.

    Destroy the Ring on LOTR
    One of the greatest modes in all of pinball...

    #22 1 year ago
    Quoted from jp1985:

    Super Seance on TAF. It was pure genius to use the knocker in that way.

    YES! My example of what made the 90's pins classics. While the spooky sounds are playing you're fighting the magnets to get the shots. Then when you make those ramps you get to feel it with the knockers.

    Quoted from deibert:

    All the modes in LOTR are fun to play. Hard to get bored of that variety!

    Nice. I was thinking DTR but separate modes like Shelob, Ents and Wargs are such fun and so many in one game.

    Quoted from PinballTilt:

    Move your car!

    Classic funny fun.

    For White Water lovers - Bigfoot Hotfoot and Welcome to Wet Willie's.

    TZ has some great stuff also, like getting the powerball back into the gumball machine.

    #23 1 year ago

    Vengeance mode in Shadow

    #25 1 year ago

    Any of the modes on DH

    #26 1 year ago

    Find the girl / 2 ball multiball on Creech.

    #29 1 year ago

    “Rip Off” “Blast That Ball”. NGG try and get all 6 balls going! Next to impossible!
    But talk about Mayhem!

    #30 1 year ago

    The Water slide mode on bill and teds.....wait...forget I said that.

    #31 1 year ago

    LOTR: Escape the Ringwraiths
    GOT: Hand of the King

    HORDE!

    #33 1 year ago

    It’s not a mode, but when you collect special on Quicksilver.

    Get the bonus multiplier to 5x.
    Light all the letters of the word Quicksilver if you haven’t already. Knock down the drops on the right drop target bank again. Shoot the ball through the right spinner to collect special.

    The game will rack up the 70,000 points for the special, and the high pitched sound slowly increases. When it’s awarded the points it stops scoring and the sound stops (clearing the small rom memory cache?). Then it repeats awarding the 5x by a onus points, the screeching sound slowly getting louder until it feels like it’s going to explode. Stop the scoring and sound. Rinse and repeat for 4x, 3x and 2x.

    “Horseshoe” mode on Quick Draw/Fast Draw. How did they not make a solid state version of this game I’ll never know

    #35 1 year ago
    Quoted from deibert:

    Yes. Love Destroy the Ring! Always gets the blood pumping.

    Jericho on Iron Man, especially with shaker motor and subwoofer. Oh man.

    So many good ones.

    I assume OP meant regular and not wizard modes. In that case I’d say barn on TWD and most all the modes on Alice Cooper Nightmare Castle.

    #37 1 year ago

    Just realized OP mentioned Crank It Up so I’m wrong

    #38 1 year ago

    The Tale of Ali Baba. Nothing like that zigzag combo shot up the playfield.

    #39 1 year ago

    System Failure on Jurassic Park. Love when the whole machine just dies.

    #40 1 year ago

    I really enjoy Martian Attack. Hammering down the martians, while debating whether you should use that one martian bomb you've been hoarding, starting multiball, and trying to rack up as many kills as possible. Absolutely love it.

    Close second: Bigfoot Hotfoot. It's an easy mode, but starting it requires a lot of risk. However, beating it and getting camera craze is super fun, especially when it's stacked with multiball AND 5x.
