Reading a book and it says something about a Hey Dey. Did a search online and it seams it was a Herschell ride. A few other parks had them including Rocky Glenn near Scranton. Does anyone know anything about this ride? How about pictures?
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

Spillman, actually. It was a British design, introduced to the U.S. about 1925. It was held to infringe the Whip patent, requiring royalties to be paid to Mangels.

That looks like a pretty cool ride, even by todays standards.

Knoebels Groves had one in the early 1930s before they got an 8 car whip. They only had it a few years before removing it. It was one of their early rides.
They also had a Lindy Loop during the 1930s, I didn't get to where that ride was removed. I would like to see a vidoe of that ride too.

Conklin had a Hey Dey, built in the UK, on the road for one season.

Conklin's HeyDey played at Maple Leaf Village Park in Niagara Falls, Ontario for a couple years after it was on the road.
Crystal beach park had one too. Had an oval track with tubs like an AH Twister.
