Interesting, saw that new video and story about the new ride design from Wisdom.

It looks interesting, besides the bumper car/Tilt it makes me think of both a Calypso and that Tagada ride as well.


What do you all think of it?

Said the heaviest piece to lift would be the fence, boy that sure wasn't the case back in the day when I moved rides. I believe some of my back problems are from all the heavy lifting we used to do.

However, with ride designs like that with such little heavy lifting you are limited to size and scope of the ride you can build. But I get it, labor shortage and a lot people don't want to work like we did years ago.

HA HA HA That is a lawyers dream ride. A few head-on collisions and hurt necks and that ride will be done. Take lots of pictures....

could be, guess that why we never see a Tagada on our midways.

Cumberland Valley tried a Tagada one time, didn't last past a couple of spots.
