Thats a lawyers DREAM ride

I think Cumberland Valley bought one of those a few years ago, but it didn't last the season...

wow, that would be great at a drunk fest. I don't think would they even license something like that Ohio. It makes a Swinging GYM look like a nominee for "safe ride of the year".

CVS had bought one back in the early 90's. As I understand it they had to allter the seats to include lap bars and I am not sure when it was sold, but I am pretty sure it was. Also, it came on a single axle trailer and they added a second axle to the rear of the trailer. There is some info on it in an old issue of Carousel Magazine.

Otherwise, I wouldn't even look at buying this ride.

They should call it Litigada (latin for litigation)

That ride is not unlike the Schunkler. Anyone remember this?

Sit back, relax, because we're taking it to the max.

I'd assume the airtime is what people look for on it. It only gets good bounces with all three compressors operating, however. Some only operate two or one, making it a pretty boring experience.

Keep it padded and a couple of people that can bust a move on the floor and that with the music and light show it would top a midway in gross!It's a ride and a show combined thats the element a modern midway is missing. I do not think it would be any worse than a skate park or something similar. The customer would know ahead of time it is not the normal sit down, shut up and hold on ride!

The funny thing is that they are in almost every country that has "modern" fair rides. By modern i mean not made out of wood. LOL
