  3. i need some tips on what to ecspect when i go on this ride so if someone can tell me that would be great, i’ll be on this site every day checking

  4. For Tyty:

    Just expect lots of butterflies & learn to trust the ride itself not to “hurt” you & enjoy! I was terrified at first but now I’m addicted!!

  5. Tyty: Follow the instructions from the ride operator, hold on to the bars on the door. Don’t worry the door is well secured. Even though I want to attempt a four hour ride on it, I always check the safety devices on the ride. Also the operator is trained on giving the riders the safest ride possible. Enjoy.

  6. FOR TYTY: Let’s see, this ride is hard to describe. The ride gives tons of G-forces, so you will be jerked around quite a bit. Also, some centrifugal force could be experienced if you flip for a while (like 3+ times in a row.) I know that you are supposed to hold on to the grab bars in front of you, but if your daring, I’d hold to the lap bar, because sometimes it makes you flip more. Other than those things, you’ll have a great time anyway.

  9. The fact that a little metal pin is the only thing stopping you from crashing to the ground creeps me out.

    Dave - February 20th, 2010 at 9:55 am

  10. Jarad, When i rode this you had to be 48 in. or taller to ride Chance Zipper

    Dave - March 19th, 2010 at 7:01 am

  11. Do they still allow 3 people in a car, or is that not allowed anymore in the ones with a big Z on the side? I’m riding this in 4 days…yes!

    Jarad - May 12th, 2010 at 1:12 am

  12. hey i wish they still had 3 people per cart is that only in the one with the z on the side of the cagies i want to know email me if so kk ttyl i am addicted to this ride i am going in like 3 days woooooooooooo

  13. Hey, I’m ready to go for a world’s record for the longest non-stop ride in riding the Zipper. How does four or more hours sound? My e-mail is, if this can be made to take place and I live in Florida.

    Bruce Bell - August 9th, 2010 at 11:44 am

  14. Jarad, they don’t allow 3 people per car with the Zipper that comes to my fair every year but I’m not sure about others.

    Isaac - August 13th, 2010 at 8:19 am

  15. Dave, There is two other latches that hold the door shut. Unless the Zipper at your fair is from the 70’s or 80’s, (diamond in middle not arrows) I wouldn’t worry. Besides this car is the updated version that eliminates the need for the pin

    Isaac - August 13th, 2010 at 8:22 am

  16. Jarad, the ride that has the most G-Forces in my opinion is the Orbiter.

    Isaac - August 13th, 2010 at 8:24 am

  17. It has to be 3 smaller people to be allowed the cages are pretty tight with just two people anyways but if you look at the photo theres enough bars on the door for 3 people ive seen it a few times tho i cant imagine it being comfortable

    Ryan - August 23rd, 2010 at 1:47 pm

  18. Ryan, i’ve ridden this 5 times and i ride with my friends and there is room for 1 or 2 people with us in there

    Isaac - August 26th, 2010 at 4:16 am

  19. an i’m only 12

    Isaac - August 26th, 2010 at 4:17 am

  20. I work for a travelling carnival and we have a newer 2000 model zipper, the door is held by 3 latches, 2 regular latches and the 3rd one is almost impossible to break or come loose, if the door does open the door will be held on by the 3rd latch restraint.. it will cause the door to be open a slight bit about 4 inches… so it’s not gonna fly open unless that 3rd latch would break but chances are slim….

  21. i used to be terrified to ride the >>>Zipper<<< but now i love it i’m addicted to it… i also like the Inverter, Ring O Fire, Top Gun and Rock O Plane… those r some good rides for us thrill seekers

    Carny Lette - August 31st, 2010 at 4:59 am

  22. ok, if u r wonderin why when u ride the zipper and u suddenly start, spinning out of control, non-stop til the ride is over, that means either u have shifted ur body weight to the point that its in a outta control spin or usually that means the ride operator has the Zipper in a chainsaw motion…. it’s when the boom (ob-long frame) is goin one direction and the cable/cars (pulley system) is goin the opposite direction?????

    Zippermans Girl - August 31st, 2010 at 5:07 am

  23. is that ride safe i mean there is no shoulder harness

    alex - February 7th, 2011 at 2:41 am

  24. how tall you have to be

    abbey - March 16th, 2011 at 3:57 pm

  25. i going on this cool ride at the mossy show i can not wait mum said it is to scary so i will not see her on it so i can not wait to see her face when she sees me on it. i can not wait till i have to go on this ride yay

    abbey - March 16th, 2011 at 4:01 pm

  26. alex: The operators of the Zipper are well trained and the only way that you will fall out is if the guy forgets to latch the door or if your zipper is one of the first eleven made from 1968-?. Take this for example: That was an operators error! Since the error was deemed an accident, the operator wasn’t fired or arrested.

    Isaac - March 21st, 2011 at 5:24 am

  27. abbey: The Zipper’s height requirement is anywhere from 48inches-56inches. The Zipper at Trimpers Rides in Ocean City, Maryland has a height requirement of 48 inches. The Zipper with Pennwood Shows and D&K Amusements, had a height requirement of 54 inches, but when it was refurbished in 2006, the height requirement was lowered to 52inches

    Isaac - March 21st, 2011 at 5:28 am

  28. I just saw a Zipper ride accident where one of the trolley wheels flew off and hit 2 girls waiting in line for an adjacent ride. After a safety inspection, the ride was deemed safe for operation, and reopened the following day.

    Isaac - March 21st, 2011 at 5:31 am

  29. Thes cars look amazing, now all they need is some lighting caps on them, that wold make them 100% better to look at at night. grate picher

    George - April 26th, 2011 at 8:43 pm

  30. George, I like that idea. Maybe if you get a Zipper custom made, Chance Rides could do that!

    Isaac - May 9th, 2011 at 6:33 am

  31. The ONLY BEST THING about this updated car of this AWESOME ride is the soft leather interior! And if it was all black, that’s even sexier..mmm. That’s how I like my leather, baby! U Already Kno!! :-D

    Robert "ZIPPER-ADDICT" Mata - August 26th, 2011 at 2:43 pm

  32. THE ZIPPER IS STILL AVAILABLE!!! To buy one new,it costs $575,000!!!!!

    Isaac - September 12th, 2011 at 10:20 am

    Rachel - August 1st, 2012 at 2:50 am

    Joseph - May 6th, 2014 at 5:09 am

    john - June 20th, 2014 at 12:50 am

  38. Where can I find one of these cars? Preferably a used one with a gold body

    Nicholas - July 13th, 2014 at 3:42 pm

  39. Nicholas- I’m looking for a car too because I’m building a spinning ride for the fam in my backyard I found one but not quite what I’m looking for. here’s the link to the other one:

    Jose - June 20th, 2015 at 4:24 am

  40. I am looking for interior that’s made with plastic with metal flake on it so when you look at it you see that the seat is purple but there is a silver flake on it and it’s made out of plastic material where can I find it so I can buy a few yards

    joshjoejames - July 10th, 2015 at 3:51 pm

  41. If Chance “North Korea/Nazi Germany” Rides, Inc is so scared of single riders turning sideways and slipping their legs out from under the lap bar, they really ought to make all new Zipper gondolas so that the back of the gondola protrudes inward down the middle forming a narrow vertical ridge inside the gondola that would prevent single riders from, as they think, turning sideways and slipping out from under the lap bar!

    Boycott No Single Riders - March 31st, 2016 at 5:57 am

  42. Either that, or have the lower part where the legs are protrude inwards forming a ridge below the lap bar dividing the sides of the gondola and have a couple padded bars put above the lap bar to divide the top of the gondola into two halves just like the bottom. With that kind of configuration, even a shark couldn’t turn sideways and slip out from under the lap bar!

    Boycott No Single Riders - March 31st, 2016 at 6:15 am

  43. Hi, does anyone know the length of The Zipper seat?
