Tulsa Skyride: new motor is ready for installation.
In addition to the new Doppelmayr control system, the Tulsa Skyride also received a new motor in 2008. The motor is sitting in the foreground under clear plastic. The motor will be installed in the area above the red hand wheel just behind. This is an example of a top-drive Von Roll skyride, with the motor installed in an elevated position. Later, Von Roll skyride motors were installed on the foundation. It is said that Tulsa’s skyride may have been the last Von Roll top-drive installation.
