    Retheme is a bad idea because WOZ buyers are the same people that would buy Wonka. I suppose they could use the layout for Dialed In, but it needs some really special feature. Wonka is the best license needs a 7 flipper mad layout.

    Quoted from SuperDaveOsbourn:

    Snozzberries is a great LGBTQ theme, would be nice for the companies that make pinball to not ignore this market segment.

    In the movie it's more pedophilia than LGBTQ. RD was messed up.

    Who said it was a retheme of WOZ? That would be a dumb move...

    Wonka pin could have a mode where all the lights strobe like crazy, and the LCD display turns into crazy optical illusions where you have to try to play through the distraction. Wonka Vision!

    This is what most people don't understand and why most people prefer the original over the more 'true to the book' version by Tim Burton.

    Glass Elevator multiball! with the Gene Wilder voice "hold on everybody, here it comes!"

    For the reveal hopefully Jack is dressed up as Willy Wonka, he comes walking into the room completely silent and then goes straight into a cartwheel!

    One of my favorite scenes is the paddle boat scene. The song starts so soft and sweet and slowly builds and builds until he is literally screaming. So intense, and such a roller coaster of emotions. Would love to see this in the pin somehow.

    Round the world and home again
    That's the sailor's way
    Faster faster, faster faster

    There's no earthly way of knowing
    Which direction we are going
    There's no knowing where we're rowing
    Or which way the river's flowing

    Is it raining, is it snowing
    Is a hurricane a-blowing

    Not a speck of light is showing
    So the danger must be growing
    Are the fires of Hell a-glowing
    Is the grisly reaper mowing

    Yes, the danger must be growing
    For the rowers keep on rowing
    And they're certainly not showing
    Any signs that they are slowing

    Scary! Exciting! A great light show...

    Please make this one JJ. I want to see a ball go down the 'bad egg' chute, a 'Violet' mode and three balls go up Augustus Gloops tube!

    In one of Gene Wilders' rare interviews he said he told the producers he wanted to hobble out then trip and roll. The producers said 'Why"? He said because from then on noone will know whether to believe him or not. Genius!

    Farfalla type layout. The ramp to the upper playfield, the chocolate waterfall.

    My own review of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" for a countdown at my film/arts site WONDERS IN THE DARK exhibits my undying affection and how it led me to my wife and a big family. The pinball machine would be a physical confirmation of all that is dear to us:
