What's anyone know about this? I can't find a big photo on the web page. It looks kinda like a revolving disk on a larger Rockin Tug track.

This looks like the adult version. It looks like it would be fairly easy to move...easy up and down. Not a lot to it. In fact, it appears to be one of the more simple pieces Zamperla has produced. I hope we get a good look at it at the trade show. Anyone know if it is on display at IAAPA?

I figure this might sell pretty well since the TUG has done so well. I can see a lot of smaller shows with one of these because it doesn't look to be that "big". Dunno bout the cost. Anyone know?

Downloaded the video. WOW. This is a very pretty, well lit ride. The night shots are beautiful. Looks fun...but a bit SLOW. It's just an overgrown Rockin Tug with seats facing outward.

Hay I just got home from IAAPA and saw all that stuff.The tilt cars are nice, but thay should have done more.The open top on it is great but thay should have added a slip ring on the bull plate for lights on the car.The Disco is an interesting ride.Im not sure if it will be a success or not.It seems to be very expencive for what it is.

i'm glad that zamperla brought their disk'o to iappa in florida this year, i think fiesta shows in new hampshire will buy it very soon, when that happens, i'm sure zamperla will recive a ton of orders for this ride next year, one more thing, is that discovery with the giant frisbee type disc there, just curious, cause i'm sure a few parks woul'nt mind buying it cause it looks cheeper and easier to maintain than the huss and mondial versions, i wonder if zamperla could add that disc on nitro and make that piece a trailer model, i'm sure a lot of shows would like that. just a thought.

Why do you think Fiesta will buy one? Do you have information from reliable sources or are you just guessing/hoping??

As for Freak Out vs. Disco....yep...I'd agree SDS...I'd take a Freak Out over the Disco if for no other reason the fact that it's a HIGH ride.
