Flying Cages (Where Are They, Any Left)?????

Sunday, October 29, 2000 6:29 AM
The only Flying Cages I've ever seen were at Knoebels in the early 80's in the pre-Phoenix days. They were located where the handstamp booths are now. I was too small to ride them then and never saw them since anywhere.
_Do any parks still have them anywhere? I heard they were pretty dangerous if you started laughing on them or lost your balance. Anyone have and good Chage stories?

I believe the cages are still intact at Chippewa Lake (not that they are rideable).

Last time I checked, there was a set at Sports City, a Go-Kart track facility on US-250 in Sandusky, Ohio.

Don't know if those are still there or not.

For what it's worth, these are the "Swingin' Gym" from Goforth Amusement Rides. Goforth also produced the "F-80" kiddie airplane ride.

Whalom Park, a traditional trolley park in Lunenburg, Massachusetts, has Flying Cages. *Please* patronize Whalom Park when you visit New England for SFNE or Lake Compounce. This park could really use your hard earned dollars.

Whalom Park needs alot of dollars. Punk, we have been over this before, those cages are a bit damgerous for our lawyers of today. Please find a new ride, or you just have to visit the firemans carnival.

I'm surprised that there are any of these things still in use.They were a libility nightmare thirty years ago.
