Thank you. (:


Well, let's see if I can do this....

Wade (2)
Butler (2)
N.A.M.E. (3)
Funtastic
Davis (2? (including the former B&B wheel))
Crabtree
J&J Amusements
Reithoffer
Amusements of America
Belle City
Deggeller
Former Fiesta (who did they sell it to?)
Former Beauce Carnaval (someone said that's the one at the small park in Daytona, Florida)

Whatever happened to Murphy Bros.' Giant Wheel?
Bloomsness used to have one as well, anyone know where that one ended up?
Former Larry Carr?

Plus many at parks around the country.

I may have missed one or two....anyone else?

In the east/midwest:

Wade (x2)
NAME (x2)
Belle City
Reithoffer
Amusements of America
Crabtree?

In the west, I believe:

Butler
RCS
Funtastic?

There's also a bunch of them in parks:

Daytona Beach, FL
Great Escape, Lake George, NY
Martin's Fantasy Island, Grand Island, NY

I'm sure there are others I've missed...

RCS does not own a CHANCE Giant Wheel. They have La Grande Wheel and another Euro wheel like Strates'.

If you are including parks:

Dorney Park
Hershey Park
Michigan's Adventure
Wasn't there one at Cypress Gardens in Florida?

I think I read where Jerry Murphy said he still had it at his WQ's in San Marcos Tx.

Todd Armstrong has one too

Frontier City in OKC has one.

So someone count them up and tell us what the final count is.

Not saying they didn't sell it - but if they did - how come I still see it traveling with the show ? Just wondering ?

PGAM has a Mulligan wheel, not a Chance.

Waldameer Park in Erie Pa has a Chance Giant Wheel.
