Thanks Ryan. That answers the question as to what happened to Wade's Mulligan Swings as well, since they are one and the same.

I'll go into my photos again and post a couple of photos of Mulligan Sky Quest, which is the updated Mulligan Swings. Only one was built, Jules and Beck had it for awhile, now Playworld Amusements here in Michigan has it. Very sharp looking swings, actually.

Well that did not take long. Had a photo on the computer here already. I figured since we were on the subject of Mulligan Swings, might as well upload a photo of the new version they built, only one of which was produced. As I said, originally owned by Jules and Beck Combined Shows, now owned by Playworld Amusements. Called the Sky Quest, I thought it was sharp looking for a one trailer swings ride. This photo was taken in August 2004 at the Wayne County Fair in Belleville, Michigan, when Jules and Beck played the spot.

They took all the measurements off ours to build that one. I guess the didnt keep the original plans. Im not sure if they did it to that one but they were supose to eliminate the outer cat walk by making the trailer 50ft instead of 45ft.

Bill Mulligan told me they were trying to make the sides double fold so they could "pup" the Sky Quest...I guess that never came about.
