    I nominate my Big Game.

    All 3 pops will take you SDTM in a heartbeat, while the two lower pops are equally adept at taking you out on either outlane.

    It is this random assault on my senses that keeps me coming back for more.

    TNA. You only need one to ruin your day.

    TZ pops can be trouble

    #4 3 years ago

    I'd have to play yours, because I feel like BG pops are too far away from everything on that big PF.
    Abracadabra, old Chicago?
    TZ can be a nightmare on some machines

    Flash Gordon and Black Hole have some deadly pops.

    #6 3 years ago

    Agreed

    Rescue 911... Such a sucker shot up there, I only aim that direction when the ball save is on

    #9 3 years ago

    Old Chicago gets my vote. 20210201_181548 (resized).jpg20210201_181548 (resized).jpg

    Agree Flash Gordon but Twilight Zone and Addams can kill, too.

    Quoted from onemoresean:

    TZ pops can be trouble

    TZ. The league machine had great pops. Went to a show and played and the pops were drain-monsters.
    Very weird how the results can vary.

    I’d vote AC/DC because the weird way the ball dribbles out of the pop-nest is prone to just fall SDTM

    #12 3 years ago

    Rick and Morty. That thing is diabolical.

    #13 3 years ago

    Stern Kiss...those pops are at the left orbit and I can’t tell you how many times the pops shoot it straight to right out lane.

    #14 3 years ago

    Stern Rolling Stones. Every trip into the pops is a left drain waiting to happen.

    Alien Star. Every trip into the pops is a drain waiting to happen.

    #15 3 years ago

    R&M
    TZ
    AF
    XM

    Basically any game with low pops

    #16 3 years ago

    The right outlane on Future Spa has a pop bumper hanging over it. If you can survive it, you'd better follow up with excellent nudging skills.

    Second Old Chicago.
    I sold a beautiful Old Chicago just because those pops pissed me off so much. It seemed like the pops got meaner the longer you played...

    #18 3 years ago

    Cyclopes left outlane and between the flippers.

    #20 3 years ago

    SharpShooter, anytime the balls in the right lower pop bumper area you need to keep the right flipper up!

    #21 3 years ago

    Bally KISS. That center pop with nothing in front of it is no joke.

    #22 3 years ago

    Wonka’s pops can really ruin my day.

    #23 3 years ago

    WOZ: Big, fat outlanes plus an exposed haunted forest pop equals pure misery.

    #24 3 years ago
    Quoted from beelzeboob:

    WOZ: Big, fat outlanes plus an exposed haunted forest pop equals pure misery.

    I usually don't have an issue with mine, TZ on the other hand is so bad I had to block off the outlane with an extra rubber or nobody would play it.

    #25 3 years ago

    I second Wonka! Every auto-plunge into the pops makes my b-hole tighten up!

    You just dont hear that everyday

    Spanish Eyes.

    #29 3 years ago

    #pat-hand and Satin Doll (both Williams, 1975). SD (pictured) is probably the greater of two evils because of the extra flipper on the right.

    #30 3 years ago

    Paragon or Meteor. The single deadly pop.

    #31 3 years ago
    Quoted from Hi-Fi:

    Flash Gordon and Black Hole have some deadly pops.

    Flash Gordon for sure, that left lower pop on Black Hole is mean.

    #32 3 years ago

    Eight ball deluxe pops are no friend of mine

    #33 3 years ago

    Genie pops drop it right onto the divider between inlane and drain. So 50/50 that your ball is over if you end up in the pops on that one.

    #34 3 years ago

    How has Avatar not been mentioned yet? Not only does the ball stay in the pops for abnormally long times, but it SDTM'd so much when it left they had to add a factory approved spring wire modification to a post to divert it.

    #35 3 years ago

    Big game’s aren’t too bad. Zero risk from the top pop, the bottom two can go outlanes, but you’re rarely shooting anything that risks the type of shot that will risk those outlane pop drains.

    Beast lair is nasty

    TNA is scary but I’m not sure it’s ever drained my ball.

    Any game with through the pops shots are dicey.

    TWD by default because if not setup right, the feed from the pops is very hard to control.

    AC/DC pop feed can be nasty too.

    Quoted from Pickle:

    Stern Kiss...those pops are at the left orbit and I can’t tell you how many times the pops shoot it straight to right out lane.

    You ain’t lying, those pops are vicious random drainers. I often short plunge just to avoid them all together.

    #37 3 years ago

    TWD.

    Even when the game is perfectly level, it still seems to center drain out of them 50% time without a major nudge.

    Jpop's

    You work for weeks and in some cases months and your hard earned cash goes straight down the drain. Jpop is easily the deadliest pops out there.

    #39 3 years ago

    Also agree with the Walking Dead. THE major design flaw in an otherwise great game. Made many location machines insanely frustrating to play.

    #40 3 years ago

    second the Alien Star comment. game is designed to feed the ball to the pops no matter how you play it, and the pops will SDTM or outlane in a heartbeat.

    #41 3 years ago
    Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

    AC/DC because the weird way the ball dribbles out of the pop-nest is prone to just fall SDTM

    It’s probably the wire/spring at the bell area exit either missing or installed backwards. It should hit a flipper if the wire is properly installed.

    Quoted from dhard:

    Eight ball deluxe pops are no friend of mine

    Get's my vote.

    Anything with the upside down triangle of 3 pops without a stationary target in the middle is brutal.
    EBDLX gets a double brutal because of the design of the rubber ring layout to the right of the pops.

    Stern Magic (same as Big Game) can be hell too.

    #43 3 years ago

    Seriously, there are many games on a nice Old Chicago that you don't even flip the ball on 2 of the balls .
    It can be absolutely brutal, but what a great game when you got it flowing, spinner, saucer, saucer..... We use it as the equalizer in any tied matches or disputes.

    Uncle Pinball LOVES a well-tuned OC! His, however, obviously had Satanic origins.

    Spy hunter.
    WOZ.
    TWD, I sold it because the ball spent 90% of the time in there and if you can't control it when it does eventually come out, ball drain.
