I thought I’d send in these photos - I think they’ll speak for themselves! They were taken in summer 2005 at a small funfair in a Greek village on the Halkidiki peninsula (probably Pefkochori or one village up or down from there !). Needless to say I spent sleepless nights trying to work out a way to get it back home with me, but no avail ! Hope you like the photos - maybe it’s still out there ! (incidentally, the blue robot thing in front of the Moon Crawler and behind the rather cool but unidentified - at least to me - scout/tank/thing is actually the robot from the japanese anime “Grendizer”, which was better known as “Goldorak” in Europe - hugely popular in France in the ‘70’s !).
All the best,
Wonderful John! What a fabulous ride! Did you have to have a go I wonder? Hee hee. It's amazing that these designs made it into funfair ride manufacturers. Wonder where they saw them in the first place? Anyone got anymore great funfair ride photies?
Incidentally I reckon the space tank is our old friend the Lunar Patroller YX-1 in the 21st Century series by Yonezawa. Waddaya reckon? Woodsy
