I've owned both....DI LE was fun, but it left after 6 months. I know its a lame excuse, but the theme sucked for me...I'm really enjoying Wonka...once u figure out the rule set its a blast to play.

Quoted from Jkush18:

For the money right now dialed in is a better “deal” imo compared to wonka. However, purely on theme and shots wonka has the advantage. If you have kids, they have trouble seeing the upper right flipper on wonka, as it is obstructed by the right ramp. I have a local arcade with a wonka ce and a dialed in le. I enjoyed the whimsicalness of both games. Dialed in is unlike any other pinball I’ve ever played. Whereas, wonka almost felt familiar in a lawlor sense. Not that that is a negative it’s just dialed in is it’s own world really which allows the player to get lost in it. I also enjoyed the many throw backs to prior lawlor Games in dialed in But I’m partial to road show, addams family etc...

well said....I actually replace the sign that blocks that flipper....its a real challenge for the kids to see...the nice thing is the flipper auto flips letting u know that balls coming...that really helps the kids

Quoted from delt31:

If you could combine that wonka theme onto Dialed In, you would have a masterpiece.

I hear what your saying, but IMHO Wonka shoots better than DI....the four flippers on Wonka is incredible....

Quoted from rai:

DI by 1000 miles.

Not even close....have u owned both in a home environment so u can actually learn the rules and play the game? Dont get me wrong I liked DI, but its not nearly as fun as Wonka....to each their own
