Someone made a very nice time lapse documentary film on the set up of a Chance Giant Wheel. They used the Butler wheel at the Marin County Fair this year to make the film.


well worth watching if you have not already seen it.

Marin County fair is way cool, very nice area just north of San Fransisco and the rides are all free, the joints make very good money. I ran a zipper there a few years ago and had a blast, though I had a hard time keeping help on the ride because we were so busy
