It ended up causting around $75 But if you already have a good plastic spray paint -$30 and if you can get your golf ball for free -$17.00. My husband and I go in early spring or in the fall after the firt frost and pick them up behind a driving randge. We usuall come home with a 5 gallon bucket full... washing them is for the pits because you have to scrub the dirt off them but it saves $$$. And your spray paint... We are on our fourth set and we haven't had to buy any yet.

Ferris Wheel Golf: (Use 1 Ferris Wheel For this game.) The targets must be 20-30 feet apart (depending on age and skill level) and offset so the players can throw straight at the target. A coin flip determines who initially goes first, second and third. The game can be played with 2-6 players. Players throw their bolos toward the target. In each round the player with the highest score goes first. Each player or team has three bolos (two balls attached by rope). At the beginning of each round, the player or team throwing last has the option of spinning the wheel on the target. The wheel must make one complete revolution or it will have to be spun again. Each player throws one bolo. When all players have thrown a bolo, each then throws their second bolo, and then their third.The toss must be made underhand while holding on to only one ball. There are 6 bars, 5 on the wheel (1 blue, 1 green, 1 yellow, 1 orange, 1 red), and one in the center (gold). Blue = 1 point; green = 2 points; yellow = 4 points; orange = 6 points; red = minus 6 points; and Gold (center) = 8 points. At the end of a round, if there is an odd number of bolos on a bar, the last person to land on the bar gets the points for that bar. If there is an even number of bolos on the bar, they are worth zero points (this allows a person to block or unblock points).If a player gets all three of their tosses on the same color (except red), they get 3 times the value of the bar plus 5 extra points (even if there is an even number of bolos on that bar). If they get all three bolos on the red, they get zero points.To count, the rope has to be touching the colored part of the bar.If the rope is touching the colored part of more than one bar, the value of the bars are added together.The first team to reach 30 points, wins. If two teams are both at or over 30 by the end of the round, the team with the highest number wins. In case of a tie, the tying teams play until one leads at the end of a round.
Scoring Summary Blue = 1 point* Green*= 2 points* Yellow* = 4 points* Orange = 6 points* Red =*minus 6 points* Gold (Center) = 8 points* Rope must touch the bar to count* If a rope is touching more than one bar the points are added together. If an odd number of bolos are touching the same bar, the last person to toss the bolo gets the value of bar. If an even number of bolos are touching the same bar, the points for each bolo on the bar is zero*

My Husband and I uses self tapping screws so we could take it apart for travel reasons. We take our games everyware. You can glue it. It just makes it perminent. You could make them Longer but you would have to make your bolos longer as if you get your bolos on two tines you get points for both. I will post the rulse that we use here.
