The Chair-O-Plane is a variant of a carousel ride – a fairground ride that has chairs suspended by chains from the top of the carousel instead of carousel horses and animals. Some newer versions, originating from Australia, tilt at the top. The Chair-O-Plane is also known as a swing carousel, wave swinger, yo-yo or just a swinger.
This photo was taken of the main shaft of the Chair-O-Plane which, as you can see, is in dire need of some major attention.
Each part has to be inspected and tested, we will completely strip this Chair-O-Plane down to the last nut and bolt and re-build it step by step
The rest of the original woodwork was stripped down, completely repainted with decoartive decals applied. Most of the amusement park spares we needed are from stock. However, we needed to fabricate some parts to suit in our own workshop
Here you can see the base of the Chair-O-Plane being assembled for running the ride for the first time.
All the chairs have been redone with added safety belts and painted red with re-covered green and red padded seats
The company was founded over 100 years ago and is still a family owned and run business. Founded in 1913 by John Harness Rundle the son of the village's vicar, the initial trade was steam haulage.
We have now progressed to offer a full range of Electrical products and Engineering services.
