Trivia: You can install a Rok-n-Rol seat belt latch upside down, don't ask me how I know.

The rok n roll's (or similar rides or variations on that) that i have seen pictures of (unfortunatly i have only seen pictures) have a 6 inch wide seatbelt! as a restraint, its a seatbelt with a buckle but there are holes punched in the belt and i am assuming you adjust the belt that way.

[I rode one of those at Wyondot Lake, back in the 60's, but the park belonged to Floyd Godding. Godding's Zoo amusement park. It had had a pedal on the floor you pushed to make the cages roll. It was an intense ride in it's day/quote]

Wade Shows used to have an Allan Herschell Looper. It was always painted green and white. I used to see it at the Michigan State Fair years and years ago. Interesting looking ride, to say the least. [:)]

it ran from a gas engine, and had very little lights (by design, not elimination). The monkey-heads on the ride HEAVILY resemble the Herschel design used on their Carousels from about the same period, with only slight differences. I can't remember much more about the ride, but maybe that will be enough to tell just what it was.


If it looked like an AH piece then it probably was. Sounds like the looper.

The other 2 were definitely Chance.

The design element in the W'Wheeler I was referring to was the introduction of a CPU to rides. That was a major move but didn't go over so well. You had to call in an expensive tech whenever the system crashed. I thought the tubs were homely and suited for kids.

I have an excellent of a Rok painted by the Wizard that I will post later.

Thanks kadoty -- I was pretty sure it was the AH version after thinking about it a little, but still wasn't 100%. I'd only seen the ride twice, and it's been over 5 years since I last saw it.
