Summertime chairlift at Brandywine Ski Area in Ohio

Until a few years ago there was a really neat water park on the side of Brandywine called the Dover Lake Water Park. Sadly it closed several years ago; the tubing hill is in its spot. You would ride a double chairlift to the sort-of top of the hill to ride the lazy river ride down.

I always wondered what the make of that blue centre pole double was. Here it is: a Sneller. Alas, it's no longer standing. Glad to have ridden it. image

    That was the first chairlift at Brandywine.  It was originally located where the double quad is now.

    Looks like old Herron-Poma or early Poma towers. I don't think Poma had center pole quads though.

    Could it be a Frankenlift? Like Heron Poma towers built as a triple then later upgraded with quad chairs? The chairs kind of look like Borvigs.

    Those are definitely Sneller towers. The cross beams all have supports and the chairs are in the Sneller style.
