Whirlwind Pinball Machine *


Here it is, one of the most memorable, classic pinball machines of the late 80’s Whirlwind, by Williams Electronics. Whirlwind designed by Pat Lawlor, who’s other memorable titles include:  The Addams Family, FunHouse, Twilight Zone; brings you this exciting storm chasing themed pinball machine complete with a fan on the top that blows on you when the storm is coming!

In addition to the fan, Whirlwind features 6 pop bumpers, ramps, multi-ball, drop targets, spinner shot and three spinning discs on the playfield that make the ball(s) go crazy. This is also one of the first pinball machines that features stack-able modes of game play, leading to the Wizard Mode. Can you game get all of the panels lit under the score display in one, 3 ball game? “Bye-Cracky!”

Since taking into our store we have completely gone through this machine from top to bottom. The playfield on this game is protected for the most part by factory mylar, with very little playfield, insert wear elsewhere. It looks fantastic and the mylar has preserved and protected the playfield from years of play.

Here is details of the extensive work we have done to this machine.
