One of our top grosser's every week, but then we're a small show.

Up here in Ontario Canada Campbell's and Classic's still pull in money if they set them up almost every week if not every week.

I bought that Rock from Christiansen/Tom Brown in June of 2008. It's the first Eyerly mounted Rock that I've had. I've had a ground mount (we moved it about 30 times) a Vomberg and a Wisdom mount. The Vomberg had a two way directional drive that made it very easy to operate. We took the flourescent lighting system off and installed the LED light sticks from Showmen's Supply. A picture is on their web site but it was before we completed the center sign, now its awesome looking. www.showmensupplies.com  We move a ton of miles and being able to double that ride is the key.

I've owned two Zippers over the years. The Rock doesn't win as much money but it's a tall ride and the maintenance is a lot less than that of a Zipper. We don't have any Chance rides now but I hear getting parts for them is tough and they've gotten very expensive.

So getting parts for a Chance ride is tough eh? That might be why there aren't alot of Sky Divers like there used to be. I remember Strates Shows was selling theirs at one time, & if they sold it, i don't know where that Diver ended up at / who bought it. Inners Shows has one, but from what i hear, rarely set it up. Just wait, if i ever hit a winning lottery ticket, the Diver's mine! LOL 🙂 I'd be too tempted NOT to buy the whole ride, set it up beside the house & just be like, WOW, my very own Sky Diver! 🙂

if you do figure out a way to set it up by yourself im guessing by the time its up and running you will never want to see or think about a skydiver again

Very nice Geewizz, which show does the Rock-O-Plane travel with again? I didn't see it on Butler's or Brown's Amusements lineup.
