64-seat Zierer Wave Swinger in US?

Tuesday, March 24, 2009 11:45 PM

Is there one of the 64-seaters located anywhere in America? I think the one from Miracle Strip Amusement Park in Panama City (RIP) was bought by Strates Shows, but I'm not sure. If memory serves me, that was a 64-seater, but it might have been a 48.

Have you checked The Flat Joint? It has great info on flat rides.

I rode the one at Miracle Strip. I certainly don't remember it as being bigger than any of the other Wave Swinger rides in operation.

edit...it had a beautiful lighting package. :) (Then again, so did Starliner).

This picture is a 48 seater.

Not sure what the wave swinger at cedarpoint capacity is, but it seems bigger than the 48 seat version in the picture above.


what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

There was only one built, and it went to the now defunct Kobe Portopialand. When the park closed Ital Intl became the ride broker and I have no idea if it has been sold and where it went. When fully extended, the ride stood 80 feet tall and the swing circle expanded to 100 feet in diameter. Each pod sat two people via inline seating. Zierer no longer sells the 64 seater, and now only sells standard Wave Swingers in 32, 40, and 48 seat configurations- the 48 seater being the one you see most common at US parks.
