Rhino, it was a Mulligan Space Shuttle that was coverted to a swings, as I recall the story. Was themed for years as the Super Swings, then the Love Swings. Wade sold it around 1999 or so and Midwest Midways has it now. I have a pic somewherem, I will have to find it.

I rode that Super Swing before it was Wades. It was Links & it had this big moonwalk on top of it shaped like a dome. I even have a model of it that I also rethemed to the Love Swing to keep the confusion down when I added a real Super Swing I made like the one with Blomsness/Thebualt.

Actually, this is not entirely true. I asked Frank Zaitshik about it at the Michigan convention last January, since he was with Link in the 1970's before he bought Wade Shows in 1980. According to him, he liked Link's and bought one when he bought Wade Shows and modeled it after Link's.

The paint job was exactly the same so I thought it was the same one.
