Whirlwind Pinball Machine *

“FEEL THE POWER OF THE WIND!”

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.
– Exterior of the cabinet has had a few minor touch ups done with color matched paint.
– Fan cover repainted and new decals applied (does have some chips and cracks where it mounts to the cabinet, but still very presentable)
– Legs buffed and polished, new leg bolts and leg levelers installed
– Cliffy Protectors installed around the Cellar Scoop Holes
– Playfield assemblies, ramps, plastics and posts all removed and cleaned.
– Entire playing surface cleaned and polished and new rubber rings and balls installed
– All under playfield assemblies and lamp inserts cleaned
– All general illumination and feature bulbs (#555 and #44 bulbs) upgraded to high quality non-ghosting premium LED’s.
– New skill shot and slingshot plastics
– Plastic protector set installed
– New “W” logo yellow flipper bats installed
– Custom Instruction and pricing cards
– New Spinning Disc decals applied

Electronics and mechanical assemblies went through and repaired, adjusted as needed by our technician team. Whirlwind needs nothing except a corner in your home gameroom where it will become the focal point of entertaining guests and family members.

This pre-owned Whirlwind Pinball Machine includes our 30 day warranty on the electronics.

Whirlwind is a hot title in the pinball collector community right now due to its exciting, challenging ruleset with great replay appeal….”I gotta play it one more time …kinda fun”.  Nice examples like this are hard to come by and we haven’t had one of these in our store in several years now. Hurry as we don’t expect this to last very long in our inventory.

 

Fun!
