The design has stood the test of time! Such a fun pin! 12 different modes, 3 different multiballs, plenty of easter eggs, great video modes, 2 playfields, and one of the best ball locks ever!

This is a great game, hard but fair.It flows nicely and is action packed.Path of adventure is interesting and so are the video modes.Sound affects of the "dog fight" the planes shooting at each is also good.

The game has great features but the ramps are very steep . Shooting for multiball is easy but you need to hear a elephant noise then multiball comes down and the main thing to complete the game is to fill in the features

Played this at Vegas and friends house. Easy to see why it I the top 20, as it's a very likeable game with good flow, and awesome multiball.
The toys fit in very well.
It's a shame that these are now so costly to buy, as for the same price you could get a JJP, but I suppose this is a classic!

Still “getting in to it”. I can see why it’s got such lastability.

Excellent combination of qualities!

Widebody layout with both adventure and flow. Deep code for a 90s pin with enough modes to make reaching the wizard very hard but more attainable than Valinor. Solid for tournaments because of the multiball rules. Awesome theme. Love this machine...

This is an amazing game that is hurt by its ruleset. I think it would make a good home game, but onsite, I'm just after the multiball the whole time and ignoring the rest of the game.

Simply put, one of the best pinball machines ever made.

I've played 3 or 4 different copies of this pin and I just do not understand the hype.

I get that Raiders and Last Crusade are among my favorite films and Indiana Jones is simply AWESOME but the pin puts me to sleep.

Very fun. I never owned it, so unsure of lastability. Well executed...probably exceeded the theme if you ask me. Long shots are great

I want to on this game so bad, but sadly so does every one else ha ha. I feel like it looks so great and is themed so well and is such an iconic movie that I could literally just have it in my house and never play it and keep it as a piece of art.... but obviously its super sweet and I want to play it. just the gun shot plunger alone gets me to want to play it. dang i want this game.

Found out about Indiana Jones, the pinball adventures, kinda late and boy wasn't I disapointed.
This is an all-timer, gorgous looking machine and a hard to beat theme. The game is loaded and it does indeed feels like the Indiana Jones movies (something that's cruely missing in the Starwars pins unfortunately!).
Indy is a top 5 all-time pin for me.

This is just a great all-around pinball machine with perhaps the best theme out there, great toys and the soundtrack ranks up there with Star Wars for nostalgia! So many I find on-site are getting pretty long in the tooth and often don't play right. This weekend got to put a lot of games on a decent example for the first time in a long time. If I had this game in our collection it would be a keeper for sure. I really think you can keep coming back and having fun on this for a long time.

EDIT: Dropped playfield artwork by 1 after thinking about it a bit more.

LOVE this pinball. And like so many others here I wish I could own one. Williams just nailed it in every category. I once played this in a friend's game room for three hours straight without so much as a sip of beer or a bathroom break. It's THAT fun. As soon as you fire that gun plunger you become instantly immersed. Sometimes it doesn't even feel like a pinball game (but in a weird good way?) Great shots, solid flow, excellent missions and mini-games. Like some others here, I'll take Indy over Adams Family any day.

The perfect pinball for a Indy fanboy!

This was a game that I was trying to play for ages, I was disappointed.Solid wide body with a nice backglass. I didn't really like the flow, it felt a bit cluttered. The idol toy is cool though. I felt it was one of those games that you took to right away or not as the case may be. I found it relatively hard to rate this, as I don't know if I need to play it more to fully 'get it' to justify it's high rank.

Do you like archaeology? What about missions around archaeology?

This game is stuffed with missions to complete for bonuses and batches of points. It makes you feel like your experiencing the movies through Indie's eyes. It takes a brief education of the rules online to get started, however.

I'm not so great with random objectives myself. I haven't gone through the depths of this game, but through close research and playing, adventure is addictive. See how your compare to the greatest movie dungeon dweller in the century!
