Need info on Sky Ride
#1
Folks- Do any of you have info on the Sky Ride, as in manufacturer and year installed, length, HP of motor? 

I believe it to be manufactured by Von Roll, as the carriers are somewhat identical to other amusement park sky rides that Von Roll installed, but not quite 100% certain. 

Thanks

It was installed by O. D. Hopkins back in 1974. Tallest height is about 60 feet, length from station to station is about 1200 feet, so rough guess of about 2500 feet of cable.
