Yes it did. Wade's wheel did have a great location too.



I think "great location" would be a damn under statement.....[;)]
Great point...
And I ment to say Park Model height as being 90 feet not portable model

For some reason there is no portable info.




Because technically, Chance is no longer focusing on the portable market... they've refocused on the park market. They haven't even been at Gibtown for 3-4 years now.

Was just on the Chance Morgan website and the portable model height from ground to top of the giant wheel is 90 feet (27.4 meters).
So as some one pointed out add in the height of the trailer, Iā€™m guessing somewhere between 3 to 5 feet, and the wheel tops out at 93 to 95 feet. For some reason there is no portable info.

The difference between the park and portable Century Wheel is about 3.

giant wheels do good in most all spots. I would take that, giant slide and skylift at all major fairs and do rather well $$$$$$ wise.

I disagree. On Wade, for example, both Chance Giant Wheels were always at or right near the top of the ride list at almost every spot they played in terms of tickets. Some folks come to a spot and only buy enough tickets to ride the wheel. The foremen on each wheel used to tell us they did not get many repeat wristband riders.



You're right on with this one --

Big wheels are 'one-time-riders' -- not a whole lot of armband activity - but lots of people who will not right anything but that big wheel --
