With Iron Maiden having a fun center ramp shot, i was thinking about what other games have a great center ramp shot.

For example, Aerosmith has a great, smooth, flowing center ramp shot. NBA Fastbreak has a cool center ramp basket shot. DE Stars Wars has the fun, but easy, center ramp with the payoff of a tie fighter's roar.

In my opinion, out of the limited different pins I've played or owned, Big Hurt has the coolest and most fun center ramp. Three different paths the ball can take, rising center portion of the ramp to hit scoreboard targets, and of course the satisfying dead center home run....all oaths being actively defended by a moving baseball glove that can catch and throw the ball back at you.

I thought this could be interesting to hear the favorite center ramp shots that are your favorites.

LOTR - does that count as a center ramp shot into the ring? I like that shot

NGG slam ramp = balls everywhere plus the occasional hole-in-one

I've played one or two balls on LOTR. Sounds like a great game and wish I could get a lot of games in on one sometime.

Jokerz is another game with a great center ramp shot. Back in the 80s I was a video game kid, but I always love playing Jokerz at the mall arcade I worked at.

Exactly what Maiden should have had too, too bad let down on center shot

#18 2 years ago

NBAFB, especially in Trophy Multiball.

#19 2 years ago

Space Shuttle MB shot -- you can make it with either flipper while focusing on ball control...

Demo man is my number one

Then LOTR

I like mousin arounds center ramp too.

Fire! Is good too. Satisfying.

Lebowski. Oh sorry I thought you said rug shot. It's a perfect bailout shot and then carom the flippers ala Old Chicago.

Tell ya what; it feels pretty dam good setting up a 2x/3x bullseye shot for a soul shard or mummy super on Iron Maiden. I always felt like 'how the hell is there supposed to be any accuracy going for a bullseye on that target'; low and behold, 200 games later, I got it down and it sure is challenging and fun at that. I Dig it! Still think LOTR is #1 though for center ramps, but im liking maidens more and more.

#25 2 years ago

Definitely Demolition man.
Played on many machines,but this one beat all of them.

Kiss I guess. Weird. I didn’t think Kiss had the best anything in my mind before this thread but thinking about dead center center ramps, Kiss is my favorite. Smooth, easy shot from both flippers, but not too easy like some of those halfway down the table middle ramps.

#27 2 years ago

I think that STTNG and SWDE don't have a center DEAD shot.

#29 2 years ago

Batman forever has that small metal ramp pretty much right up the center. It's a long shot and pretty satisfying to hit.
Mousin' around ramp feels too close.
Gophers jump ramp is sweet.
Earthshaker.

" Riiiiiiide the HURRICANE "

Who Dunnit has a pretty good center ramp that feeds three different ramps depending on where you hit it.

Space Shuttle, Mousin Around, and of course Earthshakerrrrrrrrr! Although I'm biased towards those

Games I don't own...does Fish Tales count? Not a huge fan of the game but if you get in a groove on those ramps...

#38 2 years ago

LOTR is my favorite, with the Kiss/Aerosmith ramp next

#39 2 years ago

Not a ramp... but to me the best play field center shot "shots" toy was the time expander on Dr WHO. Nothing even close IMO.
