Has the Chance Inverter just disappeared from the carnival/fair scene completely? I know Wade used to have an Inverter in 2012/2013, but then they converted it to a Rock Star in 2014 and that’s what they’ve used since then. I don’t know of other shows currently that have had one since 2014 either. So has it just disappeared completely or are there still some shows that own one?

The last one I knew of was on NAME, so it at a mall date here back about 10 years ago, but I think its been dropped, sold, or scrapped. Reithoffer brought one to the fair in Spartanburg at least one year, but never saw it again.

Heard Inverters weren’t big money makers. The one at Kemah Boardwalk was even closed several times I’ve been. They finally got rid of it in 2014 and replaced it with a Larson Ring of Fire/FireBall called the Flare (it was one of the giant versions; they had also had the fair version when they were fixing the Chance Aviator after the Aug 2012 accident).
