The Power of the Wind

Shop Notes

We just finished a full shop on this Whirlwind pinball machine. This game is always fun, and is popular among fans and novices alike due to its great theme and quick game play.
Check it out!


Williams came out with Whirlwind in 1990, and went on to produce more than 7,300 games. (IPDB)


This game’s popularity hinges on its storm-chaser theme, replete with spinning discs on the playfield, and a fan atop the head that turns on during bonus modes.


Among its other toys are the cellar hole, and six pop bumpers, plus lots of multiball modes.


We gave this game a full shop job, tearing everything off the playfield to be polished, washed, tumbled, buffed, or otherwise cleaned.


Then we installed Cointaker LEDs throughout the game. Check out the difference!


We added a few special touches, too, including Super Bands, color-coded post rubbers, and new disc decals.


“Feel the power of the wind!” Enjoy the game, Gray!
