Ours was the 42nd or 43rd one made. I believe they started making them in 97. They are focusing on making the Zero Gravity but I'm sure there will be 2 or 3 Cliffhangers built this year.

HOLEY COW!!! i had no idea dartron built that many. you said that 2 or 3 more cliff hangers wrre goig to be buil this year. did you meen they are going to be built sometime around the holidays this year or sometime in 2003? just curious. i'm sure if someone does get a cliff hanger during the holidays. you can't do anything with it except inspect it and make sure it o.k that's about it. i'm sure it would be a good showman's christmas present. don't you think? little funny thought there

i don't think ray cammack owns a cliff hangher cause i haven't seen a pictute of one poasted on their website, but they could get one if they want to, tom talley from talley amusements owns a cliff hanger along with deggaler (althogh not poasted on their website) myers international midways owns one along with jimmy otterbacher and ottaway amusement from kansas. butler owns one but this one spins in the oppisite direction and cars are turned around, butler's is a mirror image of all the rest. one is at santa cruz beach boardwalk in california, they are also working on a zero gravity drom dartron witch will open next spring. mighty thomas had a cliff hanger but they are selling it on used rides web site but i haven't seen it there, reed expo has a cliff hanger along with murphy brothers, bates amusements in ohio and heart of america down here in texas. bill hames and davis enterprises might own one but i'm not sure.
