john peck's avatar I was looking around at some parks and came across Family Funland In NM. Something really odd got my attention....

In this photo: (on the right)

There appears to be a Park Model Bisch-Rocco Flying Scooter with Swings instead of Flyer Tubs. I was doing some other searches for picts as well as visiting their site, and though they list the "Swing Ride" as still being there, there arent any other photos that I can Find. I tried calling them, but they don't open for a while today (they are 3 hours behind Ohio time)

Has anybody been there to confirm that, or does the ride just look similar to a Flyers Structure and Im being niave?

I believe that is a flyer structure, looks just like the ones at Carowinds. All I have to say is....

I have seen swing rides just like these at travelling carnivals and fairs.

Perhaps the general shape/structure is the same as the Scooters, however overall they are much shorter than the flyer structures.

After looking at the picture again, you are right Shaggy, it is not as big as a Flying Scooter model.

john peck's avatar I thought of that too, Shaggy, but if you look at the center design at the angle its at along with the sweep designs, and compare this picture:

Its really, really close.

The swings themselves look like they are from a Watkins Swinger:
