New Pinball Dictionary: Rock the Cradle

Rock the Cradle

It’s generally not good when two balls are cradled like in the picture on the left. It’s better to have them cradled like in the picture on the right because it allows for a “Cradle Separation.” Rocking the Cradle means to shake and nudge the machine so that the balls slide down to where both balls are resting on the flipper.
