Yep, Frenchies

Get both! Great games in their own right, I'd argue Who is undervalued and WH2O is overvalued currently.

Honestly the rate here for Wh20 was around 1800-2200 maybe 15 years ago.
I remmber passing on a few thinking I could sweep back around and pick one up anytime for cheap

I have had 3 WH2O’s and 2 Dr WHO’s over the years and really enjoyed both. Interesting enough I paid $1,100 each time I bought WH2O with topper prices we’re pretty stable back then lol… thankfully I finally realized what a great game it is and kept the last one and have had it for 15 years know!

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Shot to the VUK, VUK feeds upper flipper, shoot whirlpool or waterfall ramp. Two shots. Repeat.

When I had the game next to TAF it reminded me of Ramp Chair but the deliverance background sound is what drove me crazy.

I actually really like WH2O on location where I can’t hear that anymore but for home I’d pick the Dr

I made the mistake of selling one at that time

I had a Doctor Who almost 15 years ago. Paid $800 for it. It was really beat up. Stripped it down completely and cleaned it up as much as I could. Was VERY fun to play but ultimately I just couldn't keep the mini playfield working reliably so I parted it out. This was when spare parts were hard to get and there were no smoothing kits etc. My favorite part was the upper loop shot and it's adequately reproduced on Godzilla. Nothing that I'm aware of in another game is anything like the metal rattle of dunking on Daleks..

I've owned 3 Whitewaters and still have 2. Bought one that was working for $500. Those were the days.

I'm giving the edge (by a fairly wide margin) to Whitewater. Although I do enjoy playing DW and seeing how many loops and sonic booms I can accumulate.

I've owned my Wh2o since the late 90s and my DW since about 2005.

DW gets way more play time...and it not even close
