I finally got a chance to play "The Getaway: High Speed II" and I must say that this machine is FUN!! I cut my teeth on the original HS and wasn't sure if TG:HSII would "wow" me but I really like it! The kept the best parts of HS, reimagined the board with some popping tricks and did something wonderful: they made a game that I now am in the hunt for! It's a fresh take on a classic giving a whole new experience but with a familiar feel! It's closing in on 3 decades as a design and it's still a favorite!

It could of been a lot better and you can lose the ball easily and the score goes up very fast if you shoot mostly ramps

This is a fast table and, overall, a very fun game. The shifter and supercharger are great, and the multi-ball lock sequence is very good even though the animations are weak. Love the ZZ Top LaGrange soundtrack. Yes, there is buggy code and the video mode is not too hard, but Red Line Mania and Super Jackpot gets everyone’s attention in the game room – the topper is awesome!

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time lately on The Getaway and find myself thinking often about the next time I can play it. I love all the loops: the one at the top if you can hit it off the plunge or out of the kicker, the orbits, and of course the supercharger. I guess the fact that if you can hit the shots, the loops all return safely to a flipper so you can hit it again - if you can time it right - is what makes people call this a “flow game”. All I know is it’s very satisfying. Add in a great light show when you hit certain shots, a multiball, and a super cool magnetic loop toy that whips the ball around a metal track at 1million points per circuit, and it’s just a really fun, really well done game.

It's a game about going fast

You want to collect RPMs and shift to 5 (shifter is very cool) Once at gear 5 you wanna shoot the supercharger to start REDLINE MANIA. The machine basically GOES COMPLETELY BERSERK at this point. Imagine a slot machine jackpot going off, LOUD SIRENS and the topper is going ham alerting everyone in the vicinity "HEY THIS PLAYER IS GOING SOOOO FAST LOL"

VERY fun pin on location, maybe repetitive at home.

A classic for me. The first time I saw the super charger, I fell in love.

The good- Fun, easy to understand, go to game when I just want shoot the ball. Third flipper (yes I am a fan), Layout, turbocharger, simple but challenging multiball. MUSIC and sound- pinsound is a must for this-original ZZ Top songs and upgrade speakers. Otherwise sound and music are meh. After playing 50+ games in my early pinball career my son and I saw this game tucked in an arcade corner (by the bathroom no less- so nobody was playing it) and gave it a try. We instantly liked the game and it is the second machine in my collection. Solid high quality game that survives routing and keeps on ticking with very few issues.

That bad- cabinet art- really none to speak of (who cares? I don’t, but it is very generic). Lot of these games around- not much collector value. By today’s standards, shallow code. My wife is not a big fan- she likes the bright new games- like GOTG and BM66.

Overall- highly recommend. Get it, play it, keep it (most likely) or get all of your money back (or more) when you sell/trade.

"SHIFT GEARS!" This is a quintessential Steve Ritchie game: fast, fast fast. Not just in the gameplay, but in the theme itself. No other game better delivers on the feeling of speed than this one. The dazzling supercharger, the shifter gimmick, the music, and the spectacular sound effects come together perfectly. Like many sequels, The Getaway: High Speed II is better than the original.

Another pin I just had to have in my collection that will probably never leave it. The super charger is one of the cooler toys and it incorporates into the theme and gameplay perfectly. The loop shot using the 3rd flipper is a fun shot and I love the up/down ramp used for ball locks. Shifting gears to launch the ball and during play is neat, and its even used in the game's video mode. Much like the dunk the dummy plastic in comet, the u-turn plastic for this game is almost always broken. The beason on top is usualyl dead too, but I rebuilt mine and LOVE IT. I probably rated this game a little too high, but I just have so much fun with it.

I currently own this game and just do not like it. The riff from Z.Z top bothers me and just simply do not like the game. The supercharger is really cool but it is just not for me. I prefer high speed ......

Simply fun 90's pinball. Addictive and a pleasure to play. I think the theme is corny (nothing unusual for this hobby), but the integration of it into the game is brilliant. I absolutely could see myself owning this one day.

This is a good sequel pin from High Speed and adds the super charger that really adds to the action in the game. Great pin that should be in everyone’s game room.

Very fast game. He has no deep rules, but he can catch and like to come back again and again. Backglass and Cabinet Boring. But the game is great. "Roger 5-0-4, apprehend 'em."

This is my go to game to play when I just want to hit the ball around and relieve stress. Turbo is a cool feature. A few easter eggs as well to make it fun.

Great early DMD-game from WMS.

I never liked the theme or cabinet/backglass cosmetics of this game, as it looks like some cheap cartoonish style from early 80's arcade games. The art ist not outright ugly - but just something I viewed as boring and dated. When I first played it I almost wanted it to be a bad game- to justify that previous impression.

Boy -was I wrong ! It's a speedy and very intense game that sucks you right into it and commands your full attention. Funny shots and entertaining music/call outs. I like the turbo charger loop even more than the playfield toys on similiar themed games like I500 or Corvette.

It may not have the depth that other WMS games from the late 90's have, but this is a very decent and all around solid game that would be a great addition to any 3-or-more pin home collection.

I really like this game a lot. Its the one game my daughter wish I didn't sell. And I kind of regret selling it as I resurrected it from a local children's arcade/pizza place and the play field was literally black. After shopping, it looked about brand new...

A great, fun game, not super deep but definitely satisfying. Great add to any collection and recommend playing a bunch when you see it on location. The magnetic loop supercharger is cool initially, but kind of annoying IMO. Lots of noise and eye candy, limited satisfaction.

Fast , fast, fast!
This Game is great especially if you like cars, the design actually makes you believe the ball is a little car you have to drive around the playfield, supercharger is one of the coolest toys in pinball.

This is one that adds up greater then it's parts. The rules are simple, there arnt a whole lot of shots, but it is so much fun, it all comes together to be a real blast to play. The music is cool and fun. Supercharger never gets old.
Shift gear!
