Wizard! was released in May of 1975. It was designed by Greg Kmiec. The art work was done by Dave Christensen.

This is the only Electrical/Mechanical pinball machine that I have owned to date. I liked the fact that it was the first pinball machine to use a licenced theme from a movie. We all know what that started.

Wizard! was inspired by the 1975 Hollywood movie 'Tommy' and included likenesses of Roger Daltry and Ann-Margret on the backglass.

This was the last Bally EM game to have its knocker located in the lower cabinet. It was moved to the backbox in subsequent EM games.

The Flip Flags in the upper right of the playfield are pretty cool.
