quote:Originally posted by RainbowBenWhat i have been wanting to know also about the Rainbow for a long time, is what is inside the lower boom that keeps the gondola upright all the time? I have heard different stories of a large chain Huss puts in there, and one guy who used to travel with Cumberland Valley or some show from Tennessee had a Rainbow, he said there is a driveshaft in the lower boom like the 1001 Nachts has. Ok, someone must know what's in there keeping the gondola upright...anyone? =)~Ben

Strates' Rainbow had it, but removed it for some reason, they no longer have it on there...looks odd without it, but still looks good though. I added it on my Rainbow model because i think it gives the ride more style.
