Details

Facts:This is the world's only remaining operating example of a quasi-Virginia Reel, albeit powered and in  miniature form.  The base of the channel is concrete with two superimposed metal tracks providing current to power the motors incorporated within each tub.  The four tires that a) guide each tub and b) make it spin are in contact with wood panels at the side of the channel.  As such the whole circuit is powered, although there are one or two sections where the downhill gradient allows the tubs to more-or-less freewheel.
