You and a lot of other people. What are you you willing to pay? That could open up some avenues for you if the price is rite.

#3 3 years ago

^Yup. Might want to put a price you are willing to pay and you will get some bites. (Seems to be about 600+ at the moment will turn one up)

#4 3 years ago

Funny thing. Two years ago I picked one up for $50 as Allentown turd hurd.. The new ones were announced and I got $250 for it on eBay... If I held it till now it would easy get $600-800

If you have an original Waterfall Topper, then you can use my decal to fix yours!
http://treasurecovepinball.com/Library/decals/white-water/white-water.htm

just clean your original using Windex / Bleech-Wite. Note: 95% of the time all of your original graphics will come off when you clean it. But, the embossed waterfall will NOT come off ... so that's ok. (Do NOT try and fix the small bump/wrinkle in the embossed waterfall, ... leave it alone.)

Buy my decal with the waterfall cut-out. Install using wet method by spraying back of decal and waterfall with ... (quart spray bottle, 1 tblspn dove (or johnsons baby shampoo), and 1 tblspn of isopropyl alcohol.... fill rest of bottle with water.)

carefully position decal on waterfall, use a cloth/rag to lightly press into position, then let dry.

hope this helps ..

Man I have been tempted to try this, but I am absolutely HORRIBLE with decals. (All those model car kits I built as a kid are a testament to this)

I used one of these decals and it worked beautiful. Would recommend this to anybody with a faded waterfall.

Mine is completly missing. Not sure what I want to spend yet. I see that Marco sells the clear tub and white panel that the sticker is on but no sticker. Is there something special with the waterfall part of it?

Quoted from Zukboy2002:

Yeah. It's a foil that reflects light and it seems is impossible to reproduce for some reason. I think someone did and it was awfull etc

Twisted Pins tried to do a repro, but the initial batch turned out terrible (from what I have read). They were supposed to have another version, but that was a year or longer ago and it's been nothing but crickets from Twisted Pins. Here is the thread about it if interested:

You can get the decal from Treasure Cove but you won't have the flowing water effect. It is better than nothing up there.

I'm thinking about buying a WH20 and know the topper is key, I found this summation fairly interesting although a little old:

There is also a thread about Laseriffic working with some others on a modern take on the topper: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/new-ideas-for-white-water-topper I sure hope they are successful as this appears to be one of the hardest things to reproduce ever.

D'OH! Duplicate post!

Check out why it's so hard to reproduce:

Sitting around the room here are the components I never got to, and maybe someone else will be inspired,

I bought a moving waterfall picture off of Ebay for $15. It was from the 70's, German, and in a wood box.
Others are plastic, some with music, others are in Beer signs.
I was either going to try to fit one in the cutout decal, or make my own.
Some have 2-3 moving waterfalls.
With some of the new lighting we have coming, I can something quite Grand in my mind!

It stares at me and taunts me to complete....maybe soon in retirement, or maybe this might interest someone else to try.

My buddy was looking for one for months

I contacted a good buddy / collector

He parted with a NOS topper (just the artwork and foil falls)

And was happy to pay 800$ !!

Good luck on your quest

I have an original WWH2O topper I took off my game while doing a restore. Replaced it with an NOS waterfall decal and backboard. My original is available. If you want it, make me a real offer. PM me and I can send you pics. Nice shape. Has typical bubbling and a small crease in it, but still looks good and waterfall foil effect looks great.

Thanks

I am looking for an original topper also and willing to pay $300-$350 for a working waterfall decal. In the meantime I may just buy a reproduction without the waterfall effect. Way cheaper for now until someone can reproduce a working one and sell it for a normal non ridiculous price. There is some new hope. There's a hint at the bottom of the following thread and a YouTube video showing the material he may use to create the waterfall effect but who knows how long it may take.

In all seriousness, you will need to double that most likely to get one to turn up. Best of luck to you in the hunt!

$800 for a topper?! Seems about right
