Larson International, Inc., manufacturer of the Space Loop and other popular amusement rides announced today that they have acquired the rights to produce the Cliff Hanger and Zero Gravity from Dartron Industries, Inc. Jeff Novotny, Larson International President, said "Larson and Dartron will begin marketing the new rides immediately".

Dartron Parts & Service will continue to support both products. The rides will now be produced at the Larson facility in Plainview, Texas.

Larson's website says the company "has provided quality amusement rides to many areas of the world including Japan, Korea, Australia, Taiwan, Chile, Philippines, Canada, Mexico, Switzerland, El Salvador, Colombia, Great Britain, and of course, the US." In addition to the Zero Gravity, Cliffhanger and Super Loop, Larson also manufactures the StarPhoto By MCW Dancer, Flying Scooters, Crazy Train and, in conjunction with A.R.M., the Super Shot and Mega Bounce.

Dartron, based in Oregon, updated the popular Paratrooper and Round Up rides with the Cliffhanger and Zero Gravity respectively. Modern lighting packages and new tubs, in the case of the Cliffhanger, made the rides very popular and affordable midway favorites. At press time, the status of another Dartron product, the "Down Draft" was not known. The product was not mentioned in communication with Larson.

Mike Salerno of Windy City Amusements said his company is considering the purchase of an additional CLiff Hanger and Zero Gravity for one of their multiple units. The ride would be in addition to the Zero Gravity they recently purchased from Bob Coil of Dartron. Salerno says he is confident Larson will do a good job with the manufacturing of the former Datron products and would not be deterred by the change in manufacturer adding, "We have had nothing but good business relations with Larson International and have contnued this relationship since we purchased our Super Loop (Fire Ball) in 2000."
