This is sad and in my opinion looks very bad. This is from Crny-Chris's albulm.

I don't like that this ride has no top either like other ones do, but it might have broke. [V]

Just curious -- what orbitors have you seen that have tops?

Agreed -- the Zipper looks terrible without it's lightshow on the boom...

The zipper may be a work in progress, & reguardless of what it may look like, It's probably generating income.
All Skywheels should be yeller.

True- I am sure the Zipper is a work in progress and that it is still generating money on the midway no matter if the lights are missing or not.

I am guessing Zippersnumb1 is speaking about the 'globe' on the top of the orbiter? If so, I have seen a number of orbiters missing the globe. The globes make the ride look so much better, but, yet again- the ride is still generating the same amount of money with or without it [:)]

The Orbiter was red tagged at that spot (it's J&J's for those who are curious). It was nothing but a big light show, and that was only after dark.

The Zipper was either real slow or red tagged as well... I honestly don't recall seeing it running either. Once it was dark, you really couldn't tell it was there because of all the missing lights.

Here's another ride with the roof missing. I know, I know. These rides probably still make the money. This is from Chris Hurley's Album. Can't you tell I'm looking at the pictures forum under the webshots topic? This pictures are very cool to look at. I give props to everyone. I'm jealous of some of these carnivals.

It was at the All Around Amusements carnival a couple years ago. On the bumper cars, they choose not to put up the tent. In my opinion, that's kinda stupid. Don't bumper cars use electricity, and thus that's why you see sparks above them? When dark skys approach, they finally choose to put it up.

Sorry for the double post, but what does red tagged mean? As for that company (J&J), did they buy or trade (Carnivals sometimes trade rides, right?) ASA's previously owned Thunderbolt?

Red tagged is the opposit of green tagged. It means not approved for operation basically. Many parks, and probably carnivals too use a simple paper tag system for thier rides/ride units. A green tag means that the object tagged is inspected and approved for operation. A red tag means it isn't.

In this case, the state ride inspectors in New Jersey would not let the ride operate for one reason or another, and applied a red "Do Not Operate" sticker to the ride.
