Quoted from SuperMas77:
Couldn't agree more. Wonka is way over-hyped and in no way will it slow the competition (which is the major problem in pinball - not enough competition and quality products). Continuously putting out titles (like Wonka) that appeal to an aging population does nothing to engage a new generation of pinball wizards. My kids hate the Willy Wonka movie and think it's creepy. I wish Jersey Jack would have come through with the Toy Story theme that was rumored to be released. With the 4th TS movie set to be released later this year, a TS pin would have been perfect market timing for release. Let's get a younger generation hooked on pinball so this great hobby doesn't almost die out again!
Well said. WONKA seems to be WOZ II with a Lawlor layout. It's that childlike. I'm extra curious about what Eric can do with GNR now that WONKA has shored up the family-friendly account for JJP. More attitude, fewer slide whistles and xylophones, please.
