Zoltar Speaks!

Zoltar Speaks at Oddyssea Half Moon Bay. Come visit and discover your fortune!

One of the things we knew we wanted in the shop from day 0 was a fortune telling machine. For fun and adventure. The fortune telling machine we wanted was Zoltar from the movie Big starring Tom Hanks. While the original design with the coin dropping into Zoltar’s mouth wasn’t possible, we were able to partner with Character’s Unlimited Inc. to bring a new version of Zoltar to Half Moon Bay.

You see an image of our version in this post; he speaks, he moves, and he provides fortune-cookie-like wisdom to all comers verbally and in the form of a fortune on a card. He has to be experienced in-person to understand the power of Zoltar.

Logistically, the package he arrived in was over 7′ tall and weighed about 300lbs. He’s a big boy! The 2 delivery guys and I wrestled him into the shop yesterday and then Sabrina and I unpacked the materials, cleaned him up, decorated, and activated him. It was a fun time for all.

Want to know your future? Come visit and give Zoltar a spin.
