I know much of the show has been sold, what happened to the moonraker? They keep it or is out of commition now? That was a great ride when they had it out on the road.

All I know is that they did a lot of work, couple years back. Didn't they have it out at the FSF, year before last?

Didn't the Moonraker operate very little, if at all after all that work? I seem to remember a story that it was down for most of that spot. I don't recall hearing about it after that one spot.

It ran, and it looked great! There were some issues with the lap bars.

Here is a pic from the 2006 Florida State Fair.

Thanks for the clear up Dan. Was wondering why that thing even needed lap bars? It works like a Round Up basically which centrifugal force should keep you grounded right? Correct me if I'm wrong though...

It didn't run as fast as a round up... in fact quite boring to me.

Guess that would explain the need for lapbars then [:D]

Thanks!
