I finally got a copy of Trotofant but the tree spinning mechanism was broken and the tree spinner would go around like a speed of a record (waaaay to fast). So I watched the videos to see what the speed should be and it reminded me a lot of Loopin Louie ('92) which I just happen to have an extra copy of as my first purchase only came with 3 chicken tokens so I taped up the center pole and cut it off at the height of the tree spinner and it works perfectly, yah! Just an idea if someone else has a broken Trotofant out there.

Still no idea how to open the tree spinner so I can look at the gears, it's pretty solidly locked up.

Hi scott,

Yes the speed of the Looping Louie engine is quite similar to it.
So if you are able to made a new trunk with it, where you could fix the palms, that could works :o)

Have fun

My Trotofant is broken too, it runs to fast. I want to repait it with your "Looping Louie" idea, but I dont really understand what you have done.

Can you tell my in more detail how you fixed Trotofant (or send me a picture)?

I would be really glad :-)
