Do you have any pictures of the 'Trabant' at Whalom Park?  Would you like to share them with the world?  If so, please email them to:
The Trabant was manufactured by the Chance-Morgan Company. It spun horizontally, and then starts fluctuating in a wavelike manner.  A motor beneath the ride makes the ride raise up and down, tilting on its side.

During the duration of the ride, the ride will change speeds. When the ride is fluctuating in its wavelike manner, the person will feel like the ride is not going that fast. However, when the ride is almost over, the person will feel forces on their body, and get pushed toward the outside of the cars. This happens when the ride starts lowering to the ground in a non-wavelike manner. When the ride moves in this way, it acts like a Himilaya / Musik Express ride. The Trabant could move forwards and backwards.  The Trabant was dismantled and sold during the mid 1980's and replaced by the 'Hamster Wheel's' or 'Rock-&-Roll' ride.
