Owned both. Shadow lasted a lot longer and would definitely buy another one. Whitewater's tinny annoying sound bothered the heck out of me, but otherwise, it was a lot of fun.

White water is more accessible for people new to pinball and so much fun. You can hit shots and feel like you are progressing and doing well. Shadow is more for pinheads.

TS all day any day IMHO......

Agreed. Shadow takes this easily.

I've owned them both... TS is loooong gone. WH20 is bolted to the floor. Has been for about 20 years!

If you bolted Shadow to the floor, it would likely be difficult to get rid of too.

It depends on what you like. I've owned both and I would give the edge to WH20. Complete opposites in gameplay really. A casual pinball fan won't like The Shadow nor appreciate what it brings to the table.

Love my Shadow. I’ve had it for over 8 years and it’s still a blast to play. Whitewater is a super fun pin too, and is definitely funnier with a better theme.

Layout wise Shadow is the winner. More shots, faster, more brutal. Whitewater is more flowy, but the shots are way more repetitive.

Arts and looks are both good not great.

Shadow has slightly better rules, but Whitwater has soom pretty cool side features too.

Can’t go wrong with either

One has something mandatory in pinball......pop bumpers!!!

That's it - WH20 is the winner....

These are two of my top 5 all time games. They have similarities of greatness. They both have the awesome jackpot setup to the upper flipper. TS has the scarf, WH20 has the vacation planner. TS has one of the best sound packages in pinball. WH20 has the all time great Vacation Jackpot. Choosing one is tough, but I would go TS in a close win.

Play a lot of both and while I really love WH2O right now it’s all Shadow.

Not sure, but I've owned The Shadow long enough that I'd swap it out for a White Water or Creature. If someone wants to make a swap let me know. Those are the games (plus Congo) I had head to head when I was looking in that price range. I bought the first one that turned up in my area, which was The Shadow. I also bought the second, which was Congo.

I wouldn't bother with creature. Fixed one for a friend and played it for a week before he took it. One week was enough. The game is so shallow, it couldn't support a newt. Top five theme and music, but if you can play, you'll master it quickly.
