Wishmaster reached gold status within 2 hours of its release in Finland.

The song "The Kinslayer" is about the Columbine High School massacre (20 April 1999)

"FantasMic" is considered a tribute to Walt Disney and the movies and characters of the Walt Disney Studios.

Spinefarm released a limited edition (2000 copies, first pressing) with a 3D cover. This version was only available in Finland and included "Sleepwalker" as a bonus track.

The 2004 digipack CD re-release by Spinefarm Records includes the bonus track "Sleepwalker" (2:56). In that version, track "FantasMic" is also bit longer, 08:27. This difference, however, just consists of some added seconds of silence.

Produced by Nightwish & Tero Kinnunen.

Arrangements by Nightwish & Tero Kinnunen.

Recorded & Engineered by Tero Kinnunen at Caverock Studios and Mikko Karmila at Finnvox Studios January-March 2000.
