Neat! I see gears, I’m assuming there will be a motor?

Sometimes an idea will consume you, like a mountain waiting to be climbed.

Top part of the ride spins but not sure if i got room or where i would put it. This this is pretty big It will have 12 bucket seats like the one posted. The top of that bucket is 6.75 Inches in Diameter. Looking on how to install slip ring for the flashing lights while its spinning.

Love this. Grew up in the State Fair town and get the the great Iowa State Fair almost every year. Really an amazing project that makes me smile with happy memories.

I keep hearing the barker’s voice, “Do you wanna go faster?”

Utterly fantastic for a first post, Welcome to the group!! With the Carousel, and Ferris Wheel, and now that someone will have to do a working roller coaster to keep up.

I want to make the ZIPPER next.
This 12 seater paratrooper will take a few more weeks to complete.
