The playfield is identical in design to Bally's 1976 'Star Ship'. The first Concorde, the 001, flew its maiden flight on March 2, 1969 over France. The first commercial passenger flights took place on January 21, 1976 when a British Airways flight traveled from Heathrow to Bahrain at the same time that an Air France jet flew from Paris to Rio de Janeiro. But for a quarter, you could fly supersonic in 1979 and have the best seat in the house.

'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 Double Bonus playfield insert shown in the flyer is the color green, while actual playfields shown in this listing and elsewhere can have this insert as either green or blue. The reason for the two different colors is unknown to us. Wizard was the first pinball machine to use flip flags.
