last night Reithoffer show a nice video of a Wave Swinger at the Peanut Festival on their FB page. Did they finally buy a Wave Swinger?

Sorry not sure about that, but I did see a couple of interesting rides for sale on used rides.com........at least one favorite big one that everyone is sure to be sad about......unless of course it stays here in the states with someone else.

Took a look at that and that looks like one of those one trailer Wave Swingers, but nice nevertheless. Maybe they booked it in?

I heard a rumor that they were getting one. A Bertazzon model i heard.
May be this is it or may be they are testing driving one.

Makes sense for the blue unit, they are growing and a YoYo is an outstanding ride to me, but this is better.

Be interesting to see what else they get for next year, I know one ride I would love to see restored on the road, but just ain't going to happen I guess.

the Wave Swinging in their photo was the full size like Strates and Deggler have. They have video of the ride operating at the Peanut Festival as well, just don't know if it was booked. It looked very nice so it could have been new

ok, the one I saw in a video on FB page looked more like the smaller one. One like J&J has/had and some other shows, but maybe I am wrong.

The center seems smaller than the Strates or AofA model.

I just looked at it, it's the smaller Bertazzon. Just look up "Reithoffer, Peanut Festival" on FB, nice aerial shots and you can see it clearly.

Oh ok for the info...

They also have very NICE Bertazzon Musik Express (like Reithoffer's Super Himalaya).

So the rumor may be just that, a rumor ... Hope i am wrong, but time will tell.

Deggeller does not have a Waver Swinger any longer. Believe the one Myers now has was Deggellers.

Believe there are only 7 Zierer Wave Swinger traveling:


Strates
Amusements of America
NAME
Myers
Powers
Butler
Funtastic Shows

Drew has one called the "Circus Swing".

The AofA model came from Nova/Kenn Penn and I believe Jeff or Greg owned the on that was on Deggeller.
