Reminds me of when I was asking around about the ramps for Rocky & Bullwinkle a couple months back. I was told from ramp makers that I might as well keep dreaming because there's no interest in the game. By miracle chance, I found a site in Norway that had a set of brand new condition ramps for $40 a pop. I jumped all over that, and now my Bullwinkle machine has all 3 ramps in pristine condition. It was a load off my mind, and I can imagine how it feels to be stuck with trashed ramps.

I am in for a set. Just waiting to hear when available

thanks

Found the site! Look about halfway down for his fix

Jeff Z's repair page was the answer to my ferris wheel to ramp transition. The gap between the two was enough to have the ball go round and round on the ferris wheel. Followed his fix and have not had a problem since! Great information on his web page,

Yeah I've seen Jeff's page, my problem is I'm missing the metal piece that he connected the piece he made to. I have no metal bracket at all. Someone cut the plastic ramp end off, and glued a new piece of plastic to it, painting the whole mess black. So currently when the ball leaves the ferris wheel the ramp bounces up and down when the ball hits it. Won't be long and the crap repair will fail too.

Well thats a bummer! Just another reason that all Cyclone ramps need to be remade!!

Pinballinc makes them now

#59 6 years ago

Pinballinc is still out of stock on one.

#60 6 years ago

I NEED the ferris wheel return ramp.

#61 6 years ago

Email Pinball Inc as his website may not have been updated yet to reflect the new run of the ramps.

#62 6 years ago

If anyone needs a ferris wheel ramp I have one that is cracked in half near the drop hole. The crack is clean and could be superglued I believe. PM if you want pics.

#63 6 years ago

Yes we now have the Cyclone ramp and Spook House subway ramp available. The Cyclone Comet ramp and Ferris Wheel ramp will be done in the next couple weeks.

Cheers,

I need them both. Got the playfield stripped down now and was dreading putting my old ramps back on.
Very good news!

Bought the others and will definitely buy the Ferris Wheel ramp when available as well.

Me too. Waiting to buy all of them at once.

Why is this thread still open? Twisted Pins ramps are a wash,and Pinball Inc. is the only Ramp maker worth their weight in salt. We are in fact at the mercy of Pinball Inc. so when they feel we need more they become available so everything anyone says about new ramps is pointess.

Still no update for the Ferris Wheel ramp?

#73 6 years ago

The update was that James is retiring and we all need to pray he finishes off the Ferris Wheel ramp for us!

There has been a lot of unforeseen events take place which have delayed the Ferris Wheel ramp. Now things should start to get back to normal and we are working on them, it's just taken longer than we'd like.

Do you have any update on when the Ferris Wheel Ramp will be available?

Working out a slight issue with the thicker plastic. One out of 25 times the ball is hanging up at the exit of the Ferris Wheel. Hope to resolve and continue testing to where we are 100%.

Thanks,
