Chance has bought out the European part of ARM of England. The buyout does NOT
include ARM's US factory in Ohio or the very successful Ali Baba ride.
Chance has leased ARM's UK factory to push European sales of it's Chaos,
Inverter and Aviator rides.  Chance and ARM worked together on the Inverter.

Zamperla has purchased rights to Soriani & Moser rides. The Soriani family will
still run the factory but Zamperla will be responsible for sales. . The news
item mentioned rides like the Polyp, Energy Storm, Top Star Tour, Windshear and
a 145 drop tower [16 passenger] on two trailers that will assemble without a
crane.

This sale does not include the Moser Rides operation which split off a couple
years ago

  Any scenario that involves selling more Top-Star-Tour (Transformer/G-Force)
rides is fine by me. I'm all for rides of this type replacing some of the lame
rides that exist out there. Not that I'm against any of the classics (Zipper,
Scrambler, Trabant), It's just that I like seeing new Orbiters, Evolutions, and
just about ANYTHING form the Soriani & Moser arsenal of rides!

I'm all for it if there'll be more Transformers and especially Loop-On-Top
rides (Flip 'N' Out, Superman, etc.) They're great!  Listen up US parks-I  want
to see a Flip 'N' Out in a park soon in the NY?NJ/Penn/Connecticut area
especially!
Also, I agree that There are too many Scramblers and such.
Also I 'd love to see a Mondial Top Scan or Rollover soon!

You do know that there was a Tagada in Wildwood in the 1980's on Marinerss
Landing?  Interesting ride.

I agree , and with Premier Parks now running SIX FLAGS, we may see more of
these cool rides. IS PRemier buying a TopScan?

Not that I know of, its wishful thinking I think.  I'd live to see one anywhere
in the Northeast.
