Built by Zierer, The Wave Swinger is named for its wave-like motion, creating a thrilling experience for guests of all ages. Note the craftmanship of the original oil paintings on the center column and top crown, cleaned and retouched in 1997.

This particular model has 48 seats.

In addition to the original oil paintings, the ride is covered with fiberglass decorations & filigree trim.
