  3. Hey Bertus FLIKKEMA here from Neede – the Netherlands. This ride opened at the Queens Fair in HAARLEM-Zaanenlaan in April 1982. At that time we operated/owned a SKID and stood next to the TOPPER of Gerrit TEGELAAR. It can happen that I could trace some pictures from the old days so the best is that Daniel sends me a message and I will send it at the moment I have found these.

    Pictures 29 + 31 + 48 + 49 + 50 + 51 + 52 give an impression of THE TOPPER when it was operated by Gerrit TEGELAAR.
