->'''Willie:''' "Welcome to Wet Willie's!"

''White Water'' is a 1993 {{pinball}} machine by Creator/WilliamsElectronics, designed by Creator/DennisNordman with artwork by Creator/JohnYoussi. It's based around white-water rafting -- navigating around boulders, exploring river caverns, and plunging over waterfalls. It has a variety of modes to compliment this, like distracting {{Bigfoot|Sasquatch And Yeti}} to sneak inside his cave, getting a gold rush, and surviving the Whirlpool Challenge. The ultimate goal is to visit hazards in order to advance your raft down the river and reach Wet Willie's River Ranch, which in turn lets you complete Wet Willie's mode.

''White Water'' is currently available for ''VideoGame/ThePinballArcade''.

!!This pinball demonstrates the following tropes:

* ActionPet: Wet Willie's dog, who accompanies his trips with an enthusiastic smile.
* AgonyOfTheFeet: The Bigfoot Hotfoot, where you distract Bigfoot by lighting a match between his toes and sneak into his cave.
* AlliterativeName: Aside from the title itself, many of the in-game locations have alliterative names, such as Disaster Drop, Boomerang Bend, and Wet Willie's River Ranch.
* AlliterativeTitle
* AreWeThereYet: Said word-for-word when you're one step away from reaching Wet Willie's.
* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti: Bigfoot shows up on the playfield, sending any balls that come near into the whirlpool. You can distract him to get into his cave, though.
* {{Blipvert}}: The animation for the Vacation Jackpot has bits and pieces of several other animations in the game.
* CreatorCameo:
** The man with the surprised look on his face on the backglass is artist Creator/JohnYoussi.
** Bigfoot is modeled after designer Creator/DennisNordman.
* EasterEgg: When the Extra Ball is lit, Wet Willie will say "Get the extra ball!" However, there is a very small chance he will instead say "Get the extra ball... YA WIENER!"
* EverythingsBetterWithCows:
** Pressing the left button 3 times, the start button once, the right button 15 times, the start button once, the left button 23 times, and the start button once during AttractMode reveals a cow.
** The fifth item in Bigfoot's Hotfoot is a cow.
** 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.
** The animation after shooting Disaster Drop has a cow show up as a FreezeFrameBonus.
** If a player collects the items from Bigfoot's Cave before completing the Boulder Garden, the next Boulder Garden award is "Secret of the Cow" (instead of "Secret of the River").
* FreezeFrameBonus: Shooting Disaster Drop nets an animation that has a cow show up very briefly.
* GottaCatchThemAll: Getting the Gold Rush requires three items obtained from hitting the Lost Mines: the flashlight, map, and key.
* IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace: Most of the area names, like Insanity Falls, Spine Chiller, and Disaster Drop.
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: The items you get from Bigfoot's cave.

"Hey, a map!"\\
"Hey, a key!"\\
"Hey, a camera!"\\
"Hey, a... [[EverythingsBetterWithCows COW?!]]"
* MatchSequence: Bigfoot goes bowling, but with digits instead of bowling pins. He knocks down all but two digits, which form the match.
* MindScrew: Get the ever-valuable Vacation Jackpot and the machine goes quiet, then sounds a fire alarm, rapidly shows frames and sound bites from other animations in the game, then tells you the amount of points you earned.
** Keep in mind that there is a mod for the game that turns the colors on the DMD display into what they would be like in real life. If you've somehow collected the VJ, it becomes even more of a Mind Screw - plus a light show to boot.
* NatureSpirit: The Spirit of the River, which awards a random value.
* NeonSignHideout: The entrance to the Lost Mine has a sign over it reading, "Lost Mine here".
* NoIndoorVoice: Wet Willie himself
* ProgressiveJackpot: Subverted with the Vacation Jackpot. For every game where it's not collected, the value of it increases by 10,000 points. The base value of it is 200 million points, though.
* PunnyName[=/=]StealthPun: Wet Willie.
* ScoreMultiplier: 5x Playfield is the last Whirlpool award. It multiplies pretty much any scoring by 5x for 25 seconds. The only exceptions are the Vacation Jackpot and in multiball, it will not stack with Double or Triple jackpots; it will just award 5x the base Jackpot while it's running.
* SecretUndergroundPassage: There's a small and barely-visible Secret Passage near the top of the playfield. It's usually only accessible via a soft shot up the left orbit, and making it automatically advances the raft.
-->'''Willie:''' "Hey, you found the Secret Passage!"
* SkillShot: Gently plunge the ball so that it lands next to the upper-right flipper, and then shoot Insanity Falls for one million points. It also increases each time the player makes a skill shot.
* TitleDrop: A very memorable one occurs at the start of Whitewater Multiball.
* VariableMix: New parts get added to the main gameplay theme when you get closer to Wet Willie's River Ranch.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: When "Man Overboard" activates, most experienced players choose not to save him and just watch him flailing away down the river until time runs out, upon which he presumably drowns. This is because they don't want to risk losing the ball for a relatively small reward, and there is no penalty for failing "Man Overboard."
