Von Roll Gondolas - A SanDiegoRadio Feature

By Joe Nelson
   I wanted to take a moment to share the hobby of one of SanDiegoRadio's readers.
   Rob Von Roll is not only the foremost archivist and historian of the Von Roll Skyrides seen world-wide, but he also hand crafts miniature gondolas in his own home. SanDiegoRadio recieved one and it is personally crafted with my favorite number, and my kids names.

   Here are some photos from my personal #24 Von Roll Gondola!



   These are photos from Rob's yard, he has a fully functional skyride spread across the back yard.





And now some historical gondola photos from Disneyland and Sea World.




On occasion, Rob takes orders for these custom built gondolas. If you are interested, contact me and I will connect you.


Thanks for tuning in!
Joe
