Some of the Wisconsin shows that carry a Rock O Plane include Earl's Rides, Indianhead Amusements, Chippewa Valley Rides, & KM Rides. Christman Amusements and Wenzels Amazements did have one (I haven't seen Wenzels in a couple years and Christman did not have their Rock at the spring event I saw them at this past season).

Here are pictures of the above mentioned Rock O Planes.....

Schmidt Amusements here in Michigan moves one. Star Valley Amusements had one, last I heard it was sitting in some yard rotting away.

We (Big Billy Bair Combined Shows) carry one, other shows in Ohio that carry one...

Funtime
Durant
Kissel Bros. (not sure if it went out this year)
Big O
Bates (not sure which unit)
Gary Smith
Wymmer

Anyone care to finish my Ohio list[?][?][?]

Burton Bros. had one of the nicest Rocks I ever saw, I may be wrong but I believe they have sold it.....

i believe ours is around a 68? and is a factory mount with the little gas pony motor for droping it of the truck.. which is a huge bonus! from my understanding they did not come with this and had to have power to the ride to drop and hook.. or you were blocking the wheels.. ours is on the list for this years projects.. complete rebuild.. i hope to start disassembling it around the first of the new year..... im just finishing up our MGR trailer senter load..
