Sellner Manufacturing was the original Tilt-A-Whirl manufacturer, based out of Faribault, Minnesota, USA.


In 1923, Sellner Manufacturing was founded by Herbert W. Sellner.

In 1926, Herbert W. Sellner filed a patent for the Tilt-A-Whirl, which was proven to be a massive hit, and statistically some of the most profitable rides at parks and fairgrounds. [1]

In 2011, Sellner was acquired by Larson International. At the time, the Sellner family was looking to leave the business,[2] and was also undergoing financial and legal issues due to unpaid loans.
