Question?

Was just reading the Myers Family article in the May Carnival mag.
Talked about their new forthcoming Fun House, going to be great.
It also mentioned their rides:

New Dark ride
New York New York funhouse
Wave Swinger
Ice Jet (chance thunder bolt)
Wisdom Monster Truck

But I thought they also had a very nice Crazy Dance at one point, or was that someone else's?

I believe he did have one, but sold it to another show in the Midwest, maybe someone else can confirm that or not.

I think Myers got the Crazy Dance from Arnolds when they bought his freak out.

Didn't someone from the midwest buy the Crazy Dance (aka Cortina Bobs) from Powers, or whoever had it on the show.

Ok, but is that the one that went to Arnold's and then to Myers with current location unknown?
I remember seeing the one on powers (believe that came from Worlds Finest Shows out of Canada) and the one Arnold had too. Believed they were 2 different rides?

What happened to the one Pugh had? is that the one Arnolds Had? Cliff Lowe redid it I think. Jeff got it from a show that was closing.

Think Elliotts has the one A. D. Toler had.

Did the one Pugh had come from Royal American? The same one that was in the Problem child move?

The one from Pugh was originally from Royal American. It ended up with Arnold then eventually with Bobby Myers. I have no knowledge of whether or not Myers still has the ride.

The A.D. Toler ride is currently owned by Elliot Amusements. Saw it last week.

Minnesota was the last fair it played with Myers... after that I believe they took it with them to Oklahoma City where Armstrong picked it up from there.

So I wonder how many Crazy Dance's there are out there on the road. I don't believe anyone has a Huss Breakdance on the road, or a Mack Calypso now, although would be really great to see a Calypso again.

I have been on all three, Breakdance ride experience was excellent, Calypso is great also just no spinning tubs, but if you don't like to spin that is perfect.

I know RAS had a Calypso, but saw one booked in at the Ohio state fair one time years ago with Link, anyone know who had that one?

Used to be a Calypso at the Long Beach Pike back in the ‘70s & ‘80s, wonder what happened to that.

I believe they had Volair GM Skywheel as well
Ride the Zipper?
