    Hi there,

    My apologies in advance for a bit of a random comment! Do you have any idea who manufactured this ride? I am currently working on a website about coin operated rides and their history and am finding it impossible to find a name for the company who made this model! I am pretty sure they were based in England back in the 1970s but the ride was distributed in the states by Kiddie Rides USA. The only clue I have is that the original paintwork/footplates usually included a capital “N” carefully woven into the design! So one can only imagine the company/owner’s name began with a letter N.

    Once again, I’m really sorry for such a strange comment. But it would mean the world to me if you could just check the ride over for any signs/plates with a manufacturer’s name on (presuming it is still in your possession, of course!)

    Many thanks,
