  4. Your Great Grandfather was a genius Lauren. I have loved this ride since I was a kid and I still ride it today. Any info about the Scrambler would be great :) thanks

  5. I recently went to a local festival that had a carnival, I was shocked and dismayed on how the show did NOT include the Scrambler as one of the attractions!

    To me every carnival of any type quality will or has the scrambler! It’s as a tradition of carnival’s as is the ball park frank hotdog’s at a baseball game as peanut butter is to jelly! A perfect union!

    Thankfully me and the wife went to King’s island in Ohio a week after the festival and yes, I took the time to ride my all time classic and favorite ride there! The Scrambler!

  6. Lauren: I’m researching the history of the Scrambler. I’m interested to know more about your Great Grandfather – what was his profession, did he design other rides, what other things do he make. How did he build and test the first version of the Scrambler. Would love to have a conversation. You can contact me through our website at Best, Brendan
