Looks like it might be a Bertazzon.

Looks like it might be a Bertazzon.


Would have been my first guess, but a lot of the Italian manufacturers make stuff that looks pretty similar to each others products.

Looking at the Bertazzon brochure I have from Gibtown, there are enough differences that it probably isn't one, but a copy by someone else.......

Ohio Ron, It is not ertzzon. They are too cheap to pay the kind of rent that IAAPA charges.

Yes, it was Felimana Luna Park SA
of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Http://www.felimanalunapark.com
For the past several years, they have been bringing one or more of their carousels to the IAAPA show (they always seem to have the big double-decker there).

I don't know about Bertazzon being too "cheap".
Bertazzon has a booth at the IAAPA show every year.
They usually dont bring a double-decker carousel. But in the past they have had small and intermediate-sized carousels at their booth.
In place of the actual carousels, they do always have nice giant-sized colorful blow-up picture panels of their carousels (and other rides) at their booth.
At this years show, Bertazzon had a carousel horse, bumper car and dark ride car at their booth.
In regards to Bertazzon not bringing a carousel to the IAAPA show every year, I suppose they take the same stance other manufacturers have taken recently- Why bring a ride over and set it up if you don't have it sold and a customer taking delivery of it, only to have to dismantle it after the show and ship it back to Italy.
I suppose the years that Bertazzon had exhibited actual carousels, they were probably already sold to customers taking delivery of them in the US (probably malls).
