Hello again; Today, I have another amazing new ride from the people at Rides And Fun, Formerly The Top Fun Group of Italy.
Stargate 01
It is the Top Sky Stargate which represents a new sensational thrill ride or what they call in Europe a white knuckle ride. They offer these exciting new attractions in several different sizes as well as portable and park models. The model featured in the photos and videos is their 23 meter version.
Stargate 02
It has a width of 15 meters, or about 50 feet, by a depth of 7.5 meters, or about 25 feet, by an operating height of 23 meters, or about 76 feet. There are two vehicles as they call them with eight seats in each vehicle. You load it one vehicle at a time. They estimate the capacity of this ride at 250 people per hour with a recommended ride cycle of two minutes. It runs at 12 revolutions per minute and has an acceleration of 3.5 times the force of gravity. It has a control PLC system to return the vehicles to the proper position for loading and unloading. It requires a total of 120 KW of power to operate.
Stargate 03
The traveling model pictured loads on three 40 ft. semi trailers, but they also offer this unit in a two trailer version. For the park model it takes four people one day to install the ride, and for the portable version; it takes two people one day to have it ready to operate. Other sizes they offer include 8 meters, or 27 feet, and 10 meters, or about 33 feet, for the family entertainment centers as well as 23 meters, 30 meters, 40 meters, and 50 meters for amusement parks and traveling carnivals or fun fairs. They naturally deliver these units in any color or theme the buyer wishes. I strongly encourage you to watch the videos as the photos don’t really do the ride justice. As some of you know I am almost totally blind, so my brother Patrick helped me to sort and edit the photos and to choose the following three videos Stargate Video 1, Stargate Video 2, and Stargate Video 3. I have changed the settings so now you can comment on the videos themselves as well as on the post in general.
I know some of you are familiar with this company and could contact them directly, but I hope you will work through my site or at least mention my name as being the person that caused you to act. I can assure you that the small percentage of sales I would receive will not effect your purchase price in the least. Feel free to call, email, or text with any questions or to discuss purchasing one of these gorgeous spectacular attractions. These units would be ideal for any location where large groups of people gather including carnivals, fun fairs, amusement parks, family fun centers, themed restaurants, beach boardwalks, pleasure piers, etc.
I hope you are enjoying these posts about the new rides now available on my site as well as the rest of my posts. I am hopeful to have some soon that don’t deal with equipment listings. For that, I need your help. I encourage you to send me your questions. And if you are part of the amusement industry, I hope you will share your stories about life on and off of the road. I am also open to guest posts by other bloggers that cover the amusement industry. And if you have a product that may be of use to companies like carnivals, fun fairs, circuses, amusement parks, family fun centers, party hire companies, food and game concessionaires, etc; I hope you will contact me about doing a product review. Or perhaps you will want to list your equipment products, or services on the site on a commission basis. I look forward to hearing from you. You can either send me an email or you can use the contact form It also has my phone number for calls or texts.
And before I go, I want to remind you that if you enjoyed this post; please share it with your friends, family, and coworkers. Leaving a comment is also a great way to show your appreciation of the work involved. You do not have to sign up for anything to leave a comment. And I will personally guarantee that your email won’t be published, shared, sold, or added to a mailing list by me or anyone associated with my site. One thing I learned from my years of owning a small carnival is that trust is more important than just about anything else. And I want to gain your trust and keep it as I continue to build this new business. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks and take care, max
