Had to sell the first WH2O due to space restrictions. Bought a keeper the second time.image-723.jpgimage.jpg

I didn't play the machine for a few months so when I turned it on recently the up kicker at the lock trough would randomly fire. Finally got a chance to look into it. Opto came loose.

Decided to go for it and tear it down to clean, re-rubber and get LEDs into the GI and flashers. This is just after removing mostly everything on the top side. It's not too dirty. I'll have to wait a week until the parts come in. This seems like it's going to be fun to put back together.

Quoted from Skypilot:

Im on # 2 also. love it

At the time I knew I would miss the machine, but was getting my grail pin at that time. No regrets though as I'm much happier with a nicer machine.

I'm not a fan of very expensive mods, but did anyone see that cave/skull mod at pinball decals? That thing looks great. I'd love to see it with the missing mountain installed.

Quoted from bballfan:

Contact Judge Dredd on ebay and save several bucks.
ebay.com link » Whitewater Pinball Active Skull Mountain Mod White Water

Thx for the link. I'll send him a message.

Here's where I bought the missing mountain years ago.

My machine was restored by another pinsider who sold it and then that person sold it to me. That's the way I understand it. Anyway, the person who restored it did some serious piss poor work. I really hope he doesn't do this for a living. Anyway, overall the game is in real nice shape so I figured I'd spend a little time and money to make it closer to perfect. I just received these ramp decals today. Quite a difference compared to the existing ones.

Quoted from Pinballer22:

Yep. That's the one. Anybody??

Unless you are looking for a DIY solution, here's an option.

Quoted from Atomicboy:

One thing I really like about this machine is the music. No one ever comments about this, and some people I know never really even noticed this before with their own machine, but the main theme song continues to grow and add elements to it the more rafts you get.
Each raft adds either another instrument or a more livelier use of it to the main song, and the song keeps getting stronger, and more complex, until by Wet Willies it’s really built up. Very subtle but really cool.
Was there some Ravel’s Bolero inspiring this I wonder ?

Believe it or not many supposedly can't stand the game because of the music. It doesn't bother me at all. Not amazing, but is nice how it builds up.

Quoted from tamoore:

Got 5x playfield.
Started multi-ball.
Nailed all three Insanity Falls shots.
Started Wet Willies.
And then choked.
I didn't make a single shot, drained two balls right after ball-save light went out....
Still got the GC score, but it could have been so much better if I wasn't a choke-artist.

HUNDRED MILLION! That's awesome when you get that, ya weiner!

Quoted from urbanledge:

I wont bore you with too many pics but this was a dirty dirty girl!
I think I was the first to take it apart.

Look at this filth!

Cleaned up nicely and back together for the moment.

Quoted from Sciddleybop1980:

my skull mountain matches perfectly to my original mountains. Are those original mountains or repro?

I'd say repro. They are darker than I remember. That mountain mod is the same color as my original mountains.

#2225 5 years ago
Quoted from urbanledge:

I dont think its a surfboard,
Its supposed to be a canoe or kayak or something.
I hate to be a prick but that mod is just bad,
The metallic paint ?
The alloy wheels?
A surf board?
the text is all wrong.
In fact it looks like a PT cruiser!

I lol'd at your comment because I mostly agree.

However the vehicle is closer to a 50's panel van than a PR cruiser.

Chrome hubcaps in the center would look better and it's gotta be a kayak on the roof.
