The "cars" are, except the wheels, completly self-build. Anyone thinks she/he allready saw the logo somewhere?! It is taken from the "Top Thrill Dragster" - coaster by Cedar Point. This version does not exsist, but i did not like the "Fast and Furious" version.
More pixx, including set up, on my page.

*lach*

Been to more themeparks this year. Which was quiet good, because it was the first time i could ride Inverter and Chaos by Chance. Unfortunatly it was the last time, because both rides are taken down in Walibi World in the netherlands, due to technical problems as it is said.
Had been a bad season in germany. Normally it is said that complaining belongs to german showmen business, but this year DSB (Deutscher Schausteller Bund) released via press that showmen lost about 30% related to the last years worst profit. And that is nearly all what they do. No thoughts how they could solve the problem. So at one time you do not want to listen to the complaints anymore. Germans do not like to invest in those ugly italien rides, in mondial rides and huger rides.
Though the large fairs in the north (Oldenburg, Bremen, Zetel, Leer) were really profitable. In Oldenburg it is said to be the best result since 5 years.

Cool model Sven. I checked out that awesome website, but I still wonder also how this ride operates.

It's like a slingshot but on a track. You're pulled back and then when you're released you fly forward. You keep going until the car stops moving.

On a side note, check out the video of the Niagara Show on page 5. Conklin has one of these before they got the Crazy Flip. Their's was called the Wild River Raft. I think it's a much better ride than the Crazy Flip. This video also features a few shots of a portable go-carts and there's a ride that's a cross bewteen a Troika and a Paratrooper.
