I can't believe a full working one is still in existence here in the US even though it's owned privately. They are still in parks everywhere in England & Europe.
I don't recall them being as dangerous as this article states:
Guess I was lucky the few times I rode (heck, i was probably 12 to 15 then)....
Any CBuzz bidders out there?? LOL!!
I can't honestly remember one at a 'permanent' park.
My Beautiful wife, Julia, is the best thing that has ever happened to me!

Sounds like fun to me! Especially with a few beers, or maybe not!
Chippewa Lake Park had one.
The ride is still standing, and still moves too.
Ahhh, so THAT is what that strange contraption is! :-P
Not sure about mainland Europe but I am pretty sure there aren't many left in the UK.

I can't remember what other park that was. I am thinking Knoebels, but I am not 100% on that one. I am sure someone else would know.
I understand that somebody removed the cages from the ride at Chippewa. I haven't personally checked so I guess I could have heard wrong.
They might have, I haven't gone on a photography run in about a year and a half so I'm not sure.
Once I get my D70 I'll probably make a run out there since it is one of the best locations for my black and white/abandoned places photo "fetish"
