Who made Strates' Giant Wheel? Is it Mulligan? The cars seemed similar to them.. But I couldn't find an info plate or ID anywhere on the ride. I did a quick search here and also came up short. So does anyone know who made it? And are there any other like it? (in parks maybe?)

Sign on the front always said "InterFair Holland". Most large portable wheels from Holland involve Kroon in one way or another, so safe to say it's a Kroon.

Hmm, odd. Thanks.
I've even been on the one at Funtown Pier in Jersey. Never really heard of Kroon. Have they done anything else but wheels?

They are involved/related/affiliated with KMG, if I recall correctly.

That would be Albert Kroon. One of the main guys for KMG. Believe he is the engineer.
