Would love to know what you paid for it. Whitewater is one of the more expensive pins to restore.

Where are the pics? I'd love to see it.

#108 6 years ago

the stand up targets for multiball capture keep breaking (the green ones) especially the left. I have the right coils in there and I have heard from many this is a problem. Who knows where to order the BEST non breakable (if there is such a thing) replacements? I am assuming the whole stand up target has to be replaced as the rectangular green plastic piece is just riveted on Cheers

Put these in a few weeks back. They are built solid and work great:

Yes it is!

#111 6 years ago

If anyone local is interested in trading your WhiteWater for my Creech, shoot me a PM.

I am in the tire kickin stage and think WH2O could be a good title to grab for my collection to replace Creech???

#112 6 years ago

Great read! Keep um coming, pic too

Tried to upload a couple iphone pics but they always get screwed up. Here's a link to the pin from Chris's site.

I bought it off the person who had HEP restore it. It wasnt cheap but worth every penny.

My friend linked me to this the other day. I only knew some of this before.

White Water, Williams 1993

Cow 1: During Attract mode, with no credits, press the following sequence:
3L, 1S, 15R, 1S, 23L, 1S. This also gives a DOHO on the saw blade.

Cow 2: During Bigfoot Hotfoot, the fifth item in Bigfoot´s Cave is a cow.

Cow 3: When the cow in Bigfoot´s Cave has been collected, getting the Mystery Canyon as a Whirlpool Award will show a picture of the Spirit pulling a string on the legless cow. A loud "moo" is heard.
This picture can also be seen very briefly in the Vacation Bonus award.

Cow 4: When you shoot "Disaster Drop" there's a display effect where you see a splash of water coming at you. At the end of the effect, when the water splashes, there it is: in the lower left corner of the display.
You have to look very carefully because you can only see it in a fraction of a second.

On the backglass, the man with the surprised look on his face is artist John Youssi.

The yeti is based on designer Dennis Nordman, he even has the photos where he modeled for it.

Also, if you have the L-5 commercial rom and you like to use the "auto-replay %" feature to configure your replays (this feature uses the scores from your last 50 games to determine the score you need for a replay), then here is how you get this feature to work in "free play" mode.

1) Put the game in COIN-OP mode.

2) Set your replay percent to whatever your preference (I like 5%).

3) Play 50 games in coin-op mode until the auto-replay % kicks in. This is a little bit of a pain but not too bad. You can either feed it quarters or open up the door and add credits (it's also fun to use the replay boost feature in coin-op mode).

4) Once the auto-replay % feature has kicked in in coin-op mode (you'll see the replay go from 90,000,000 to some other number, depending on your scores), THEN switch the game over to "Free Play"mode.

5) From there on out the auto-replay % feature will work, so your replay amount will change every 50 games, even though you're in freeplay.

**If you don't do this and try to put the game in "auto-replay %" mode then the replay will always remain at 90,000, or whatever static value you set it at, no matter how many games you play.

Cool, anyone have the yeti modeling pics?

#120 6 years ago

Cool stuff! I ordered both of those magazines, they look really high quality.

I wonder if there's any progress on that repro topper? I still haven't even opened my shipping box. I wish I would have waited to see some video... I should have known something was up when they couldn't get them on a plane, and didn't get videos posted in the timeframe they promised.

#121 6 years ago

Now that is cool!

#122 6 years ago

That's awesome

#123 6 years ago

Almost lost the thread

Here's another tidbit of info:

My Bigfoot fur had seperated at the hands. I did some internet research and it was pretty inconclusive as to what type of glue would work. Brian Kelly recommended contact cement, which is probably the best permanent solution but the permanentness of it, along with the fact that I'm not very versed in using contact cement, lead me to look for something else.

So, I was in Target and found this Loctite "Vinyl, Fabric and Plastic Flexible Adhesive". I put it on Tuesday, let it cure for 24 hours and so far its been holding up great. Dries clear too. I'll let people know how it holds up in the long run.

#125 6 years ago

I'd be interested. My yeti looks like its wearing a toupee

#126 6 years ago

Those modeling photos and sketches look pretty cool.

They are in Pinball Magazine No. 2 as well (page 63), with courtesy of (and thanks to) John Youssi who send in hi-res versions of these.

I copied this idea from someone who I had seen add this to the waterfall topper a number of years ago.

I'd love to have a FT next to my Wh20! Nice topper!

#130 6 years ago

Just added the raft mod and the vuk protector,but the edge of the protector is about 3 mm short of the ramp and creates ball hang ups on some plunges.Anyone else had this trouble?

#131 6 years ago
Quoted from chalkup8:

You have to slide the protector forward. It's slotted so that you can do this. It can be pretty challenging to get it just right so that there are no hangups. You may have to use washers or other metheds to get it to work just right. You might try to adjust it without a teardown of the section but you're probably going to have to remove the ramps, etc. in that area to dial it in.

Making sure your game is properly LEVELED can really help too. My White Waters were both very sensitive to leveling issues. Not having it levled right causes all sorts of weird stuff (ball taking too long in the whirlpool, more hangups at the VUK, balls getting caught up in insanity falls ramp, etc.)

Is that a Harry and the hendersons Bigfoot ? Looks great

You have to have the set, it is like having a PZ without a DD.

Quoted from Skypilot:

Yes, it is. I bought it on eBay about 6 years ago.

#139 6 years ago

WHITE WATER is my first pin.
I bought it for 200,000 yen(about $2,000) a few days ago.
I was able to buy it for low price. However, the state of the product is not good.
Please look at second picture. I feel a bit depressed.

Quoted from doro-mini:

No need to be depressed. It can be a great pin and there are plenty of pinheads here who will help guide you along.

EDIT,:that looks like a great example of WH2O

#142 6 years ago

Those boulders are an easy fix

#144 6 years ago
Quoted from Skypilot:

Those boulders are an easy fix

And a very cheap upgrade considering what you purchased the machine for.

I've seen way worse WH2Os. Way, way worse.

#147 6 years ago

Thank you.

I'm a kind of person who think too much. I love my pin!
It did not know selling even the part of decoration.
Shipping is expensive, but I would want to buy.Ice Mountain is also beautiful.

#148 6 years ago

Yeah doro-mini that looks good. For the steal you got that game for you can get the nice $200 boulders and not feel bad at all. The original boulders are often shot.

By the way, WH2O crew, I got my initials up on two of the White Waters at PAPA. One was the hard one with the wonky kickout and the rubbers removed from the outlane posts. I was soooo close to Rivermaster.

Nice job!

#150 6 years ago

Well, I'd like to join the club. I've had my White Water since 2004...it's the first pin I ever bought and the last I'll sell, and frankly it's the best pinball ever made. In 2005 I had the game of my life and hit the Vacation Planner. That's got to be the most beautiful light show in pinball. Mine was a German re-import that was "shopped" but has had a lot of problems, now including the Williams flipper reset issue. I bought it off eBay because back then I was inexperienced at buying pins. At least it was only $1800 with free shipping.

I'm about to do a restore on it. Hopefully I'll fix the reset issue once and for all. I also have some cool mods in mind that I haven't seen done anywhere else...
