So that was another good article on the new Zipper and the ride looks sharp, but I was sitting there reading it and thinking about the 700K price tag.
I remember when a big show owner was interviewed by AB in the late 80s and he was talking about his purchase of a Euro Giant Wheel and that it was about a million bucks, and that another show had paid about the same.
He was alluding to a possible "ride sharing" program with rides getting so expensive. I think back then music rides may have been in the 500K range as well.
And now new Zippers are running around 700k, which not bashing Chance, everything costs more these days, just thinking about how much it's changed.
