Spiral Gumball Machines
The spread of Spiral gumball machine sizes goes from a diminutive height of 27 inches all the way up to a 7 foot 6 inch height for the Mega Wizard Spiral machine. One of these spiral gumball machines is a way to attract a lot of attention to a vending location. Upon vending a gumball, the person buying is treated to a fascinating spiral trajectory which the gumball follows before being released to the customer. If a gumball alone is not enough to get people to put quarters in a machine, usually watching the spiral trajectory compels people to insert more quarters than they would for a gumball only. Each machine is a top-of-the-line commercial quality machine with high quality components. Many of these machines are customized and built to order with various colors and lights.

Which Spiral Gumball Machine Should I Choose?
These machines are the all-stars of the vending industry: The enormous capacity makes a spiral machine the go-to machine for any kid friendly environment because it commands attention with its larger size and eye-catching, bold and bright colors.
Aside from varying heights and gumball capacity, most of these machines function in very similar ways. A Wizard or Roadrunner Spiral is a great choice if you are looking for a larger gumball machine that is nearly impossible to miss! Wizard and Roadrunner spiral machines are manufactured out of heavy duty fiberglass and shatter resistant polycarbonate globes (similar material to airplane windows). The Wizard Spiral, WizKid Spiral and Roadrunnerl machines each sport the Beaver coin mechanisms, recognized throughout the industry as the most reliable. To really make the machines stand out from the crowd, you also can add lights to the spiral part of these machines. Spiral machines offer large capacity and low maintenance construction & design, making for a wonderful machine for a location with crowds of kids.
The Roadrunner and Wizard machines hold 3,000 and 3,400 gumballs respectively. Depending on the traffic in your machine's location, you might only need to fill it as little as twice per year. Gumballs have a shelf life of 10-12 months, but if you prefer a non-edible item, there are other 1” round products that will work, like 27MM bouncy balls and 1" round toy capsules.Do you want a spiral gumball machine in your home?

Why does it take longer to get a Wizard Gumball Machine?
These more elaborate l Machines take longer to manufacture than their smaller cohorts. We proudly distribute the full range of Wizardl machines, which range in size from the 2-foot-3-inch Mini Wizard to a mindbogglingly seven-and-a-half foot Mega Wizard machine. With good reason, Wizard brand machines are known for quality and ability to catch the eyes of kids of all ages. All Wizard gumball machines, built in the USA, are fashioned from high-quality fiberglass for the body, topped with a shatterproof, polycarbonate lexan globe. (Lexan is the same plastic material used to make airplane windows.)
In most cases, Wizard machines are built to order. In general, these machines are built after the order has been placed and paid in full, although, on some occasions, there may be backstock available of a handful of Wizard gumball machines in specific colors and sizes. Depending on the current order volume when the order is placed, the distance the finished machine must transit, and other considerations, the time-frame for delivery of a Wizard gumball machine can range anywhere from 5 business days to 20 business days following the day we process the order, and sometimes longer for the largest machines such as the Mega Wizard and the Giant gumball machines. Another factor that can prolong an order is retrofitting a machine with a coin mechanism that can accommodate a foreign currency.
Why does spiral gumball machine color availability fluctuate?
It is true that thesel machines come in a huge range of colors. All of those fancy colors may not always be available all the time. While you have probably seen Wizard gumball machines in every color of the rainbow, and maybe even some patterns, not all colors are available all the time. Wizard tries to work with suppliers to stock a consistent supply of fiberglass in the most popular machine colors, but sometimes less common colors are not available, or the quality is not up to Wizard standards and cannot be used to build a machine. Because Wizard gumball machines are built to order, color availability is limited to the fiberglass colors that are in stock and of proper quality at the time your order is placed. Because these machines are so popular, sometimes color availability changes so quickly that Gumballs.com isn’t aware of specific colors being out of stock until after an order is placed. We know that this can be a disappointment, so we make every effort to find a solution. If you have a specific color and size of Wizard Spiral gumball machine in mind and want to be sure it is available by a certain time, contact us BEFORE placing an order. We are happy to let you know the current availability and the delivery time-frame on an intended spiral gumball machine - ahead of time or after the order is placed.
