Always good to see a Himalaya with real hills and valleys still on the road! Good for them!
I've never been "with it", just been an interested observer of carnivals for more than 50 years.
Johnny's United Shows..."A Family Tradition" and "All for Fun, Fun for All".
The carnival of my youth, which had roots that originated in my hometown.

Who did they buy it from? Looks familiar.

Trying to place it. It's a Reverchon, not a lot of them around that are topless.

Looks similar to this one (stairs are the first difference you notice, or lack of on this one):

Photo was taken back in 1987 in Traverse City, Michigan on an Arnold Amusements lot. I was told years ago they got it from Deggeller, and then later sold it to an independent who traveled it with Mighty Thomas Carnival then later Arbroo Shows, not sure whom else.

And on closer inspection, I see the tubs on this one look slightly different as well.

That one is an SDC, from what I recall.

That Himalaya belonged to Bill & Terri Bullis, didn't it? They had Arbroo at the end. They were from Luverne, MN I think.

David got rid of it a couple of years ago...

Don't know where it went!

I'll check to see if I have any pics.

The one in Hurleys pic is a Mack with tubs by Venture. Rode it in 09 here in Georgia. Horribly rough and uncomfortable.

Campbell Amusements of Ontario, Canada has a nice Reverchon "Grand" model Himalaya.

While that Himalaya is still listed on Campbell's website, I noticed the sign on the Oscar's Amusements ride is very similar to that on the Campbell ride.

Also, even the orange and yellow bottom steps on the left side of the picture look identical to those I've seen in some photos of the Campbell Himalaya.

While the Oscar's ride looks good, I hope it's not the one from Campbell, as that would mean another good Reverchon Himi got "chopped."

Just noticed that Oscars must of sold their Trabant and replaced it with the
Himalaya. They had the Trabant for many years gonna miss that ride as it was a classic.

That's correct it mack it may be chopped again but it's still a topless classic no one will find anywhere else on the road or at least that was last I knew.. and yes was terry and bills on arbroo shows.. last I saw it run was 2006 smoothly. Also was the same one on Arnold's and is the same one currently believed to be on Oscars now..
