I'm going to assume this is a fairly common injury on a Tagada... :Pr

Yeah well... USA! USA!

I rode my first Tagada in Blackpool (TPR UK Tour 2006) in an indoor combo haunt house and ride bldg.
Called Trauma Towers, I remember? No seat belts, and it was pretty wild, although I don't believe they
made it bounce as much as the outdoor ones do. And I had no idea at the time, that this was a Tagada. :wink:

And the one I rode in China in Sept.2012, one ride on it was to the tune of "Call Me Maybe"!
That was fun. And "bouncy."

:b :br

P.S. What has happened to Floraland, lately? There were a couple of coasters being built on land nearby.
An 'extension' of Floraland, wasn't it? Or was that an entirely new park I'm remembering, in China back then?

The tagada used to be in this bldg. By my second TPR UK visit (2010)
it was gone and the bldg was used for character meets 'n greets.

The one in China. Floraland. With most of us on the floor of it. Thank you to who took this (I forget, sorry).

I just found out the Tagada is banned in the USA, there is no way it would be allowed nor would anyone want to operate it. Liability, liability, liability.

I wrote the book about donkeys!

It is not banned. "Banned" means it is specifically prohibited. It is not. No one wanting to take the chance operating one does not make it banned.

I think the only place to ride a Tagada in the US is at IAAPA.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

These things are in quite a few places in Korea under the name disco pang pang, either up side streets of the night life areas or in a basement of an arcade. I've seen in the dark disco light ones and some with performers who flip and kick within centimeters of the rides and catapult to the roofs. Apologies for the quality and the angle, the autofocus had a complete fail and the person I left it with didn't realise there was a jump when I was riding.
