Rainbow was a Rainbow built by German manufacturer HUSS that was previously owned & travelled by UK showman Keith Emmett.


Rainbow was originally built for German travelling showman Ludewigt in 1983.[1] It operated in Germany until the end of 1986, when it was sold to Blackpool Pleasure Beach as the replacement for the Ranger.[2] Its stay at the park was relatively short, and it was moved to sister park Pleasureland Southport for the 1991 season. After a two season stint at Pleasureland Southport the ride was sold to Walter Shufflebottom of Fun Acres Amusement Park in Southsea. It operated at the park from 1993 until the end of the 1995 season, when it was part-exchanged with K.T. Enterprises for the park's new Wave Rave Miami.
