Quoted from Industen:

Another new mod surfaced link » Williams White Water Wh2o Pinball Insanity Falls Spine Chiller Decal Mod
$10...why not. I will post some pics when they come in.

I really like these but my raft and bear mods cover both spots.

Same here. Blackbeard, I would still do it. It may not get a lot of use, but the ball rockets up to those targets. One good hit...

Quoted from leatherface:

Does anyone have advice on which LED to use under the boulders? I tried a white ablaze 3led 555 under there but the light is too direct and only really lights the top middle of the boulder. I tried orange but same result and orange wasnt a good colour anyway.
At this point i put the regular 555 globe back in and it gives a great glow with some light emitting underneath too which is perfect but i dont like the amount of heat the incandescent globes put out. Maybe a frosted warm white 555 LED would be best?

I put CoinTaker warm white "afterburners" in mine. Brightens up the playfield under the boulders too.

I could go either way regarding the snow on the mountains or the white mountains. They both are cool in my opinion and if people like it, have at it. I'm curious, however, as to why these "mods" ever started as I don't see the connection between white water rafting and snow!? It's sort of like converting Fish Tales to an ice fishing theme... which I don't think anyone has done yet. Just sayin.

Quoted from calvin12:

Where do you think the water in the river came from?

Umm... rivers do run with water that does not come from snow covered mountains.

Quoted from billsfanmd:

Joining club on Friday. Who sells the little yellow raft mods. Seen them mounted on left side and above the whirlpool

An early welcome to the club! The seller on eBay is "judge-dredds-pinball" in the UK. Very nice guy. Dealt with him many times. Contact him and he will give you a slightly better price than what he lists them for on eBay.

Billsfanmd - Pinball Life sells the bigfoot light mod. The colordmd is well worth it on this machine.

Hey bigd1979 - it looks beautiful. So beautiful that it deserves more space... should probably sell me that Congo to free up some room

#1301 5 years ago

Understood..... (sigh)

#1303 5 years ago

Hi Blackbeard - Unfortunately, I'm not ready to part with my Whitewater. Probably never will. I love the game and understand why he wants one. Thanks for trying to make the connection though!

Quoted from preore:

Hi All- new to the club. Just picked up my WH2O last week and am very excited. Pretty rough condition, but have started methodically cleaning up. On a budget, so doing a little at a time. One thing that really annoys me though, is that someone put a right side "Party Zone" slingshot on the lower Left sling. I will likely order a new set of plastics all around since many of mine are cracked, but that is down the road. Wondering if anyone has a left slingshot plastic laying around that could tide me over (cracked is fine- anything is better than what I have right now).

Hi preore - welcome aboard! PM me your address and I'll send you a left sling plastic.

Quoted from Skins:

I always thought the issue was the waterfall boards prematurely burned the leds out because of the voltage difference. Not certain on that though. I do know the glm board was designed specifically to facilitate the use of leds in the chase boards.

Not if you use the correct leds. 6.3's bulbs will burn up.

It's the German's who have a passion for Pinball not America.
Look who makes 3d Translites, Hi Fi Sounds boards, Playfields, Color LCD Displays for this and other Pinball Machines.

Comical statement. Well you could make all of those mods for the pins made in Germany. Oh wait..... apparently the passion only applies to mod them, not make them. Didn't realize my colordmd's came from Germany either.

Quoted from n1teowl:

Anyone have a problem with their shooter not being strong enough? I have a problem with the ball not making it all the way around the top arc when the plunger is pulled all the way back. Is it the shooter spring? What shooter strength are people using? Thanks for any ideas for making that shot stronger.

If the spring seems strong enough, check to see if the ends of the shooter lane cover are bent outward keeping the ball too far away from the shooter rod tip. If so, bend them back slightly allowing the ball to sit back more in the shooter lane when plunged.

Quoted from Soulrider911:

Hey fellow rafters need your help, the coin door interlock on a white water is the stacked double switch right? My had been pirated so can’t tell.
[quoted image]

Hi All - Does anyone know the part number of the slam tilt switch on the bottom of the cabinet in this picture (in post #3229)? I'd like to replace it in my machine but cant find the part number or anyone who has something like it stock. Thanks

I like the blue "W"'s on the speaker grills. Better than the typical red.

How about putting a T-nut on the bottom and screwing into that? Just a thought...
