Does anyone know of a vendor for these contraptions??

You could try asking at the Believe It or Not forum on the Magic Cafe--several old carnys post there and might have a lead.

Oh, even better would be the Sideshow World Yahoo Group. Lots of current carnys there.

I dont know if they will have a ladder but I bet they could tell you where to go to find one.

yes in some of my searches I found the name "Jacobs Ladder" mentioned but didnt know if it was a generic name for the game or a name given by a certain company.
The most common name I found was "Ladder Climb"
I could only find it to rent, not to buy. Maybe I should make one!!!
