At last a WH2O thread. Well deserved Wet Willie...
Quoted from unigroove:
Don't have a White Water myself, but allow me to upload this photo of designer Dennis Nordman next to an early version of the game. The photo is featured in Pinball Magazine No. 2, which features a career covering special on Dennis Nordman. The White Water chapter included Dennis story on the game plus notes from Greg Freres, Chris Granner and John Youssi. John also shared some of the early artwork sketches in the magazine, which makes it even more interesting. http://www.pinball-magazine.com.
Very cool, thanks for sharing!
BTW, I just purchased the issue 1&2 combo pack. Looking forward to it!
Quoted from Jam_Burglar:
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.
Cool, anyone have the yeti modeling pics?
Quoted from dsuperbee:
I would say you are lucky! I WISH my ball would spin around in the ramp that long. 3 rotations is the norm for mine.
Simple fix ... novice, flame polish (if you're feeling brave), then wax with pure carnauba. Mine spins almost too long before dropping in. I think the carnauba makes the difference.
Quoted from Deaconblooze:
That one's gorgeous, doughslingers!
Has anyone installed a repro upper pf drain ramp? Mine seems to be too thick, and causes the ball hang up near the upper flipper at times. I'm wondering if it's best to almost rabbet that edge?
I had the same problem. I ended up sanding then polishing the edge until it fit. Not something I wanted to do, but it's hidden behind the boulders so it wasn't a big deal.
Quoted from djblouw:
Just starting to tear down the pf. I've heard it's not much fun, but am looking forward to seeing how it all comes apart. Any good tips specific to this machine when doing a tear down? How about anything to look out for, or to add while in process?
I'm also getting to use my new rotisserie for the first time. Built it out of 80/20 so I can completely disassemble and store when not in use. Seems like it will be a lot better then working in the machine.

It's a lot easier than most claim. Just take your time. Aside from the interconnected ramps there's not many parts ... So tears down is pretty quick compared to pins with a ton of little parts.
If you need a specific photo I have some pretty good clear shots of everything.
