How many shows have these rides now? It at least looks like a very cool and fun ride and I thought by now it would be as common as the zero gravity is on the midways today. I assume the mind blaster is just another variation of the ride or is there a difference in the track length on different models?

every time PGAM had the mind blaster set up here in Gaithersburg, MD from 2008-2011, each time i saw it, it was always broken down, or being fixed, just IMHO about that ride

BCA has the kiddie version, much like a Rock N Tug. NAME (Mid America) has the full size version, much more like a Disko.

Toler's Mind Blaster was the first EOS manufactured ride of it's type in the US. After the first season they added a second axle to the trailer to better distribute the weight. They may have also put some parts in a second trailer.

erik, Any idea if Toler's Mind blaster actually ran, every time i saw it, it was always closed, or being fixed, this was various times over the 27 combined days that it was up in gaithersburg between 2008-2010
any ideas?
seemed like a money pit IMHO

It was 2006, PGAM's first year with the contract, and the Disk'O came from Steel Pier.

it ran. I saw it operate many times. before he sold it however, I think there were some problems with the computer on it and had it fixed to sell it as A.D. sold his pieces.
