Neverland rides up for rent

MICHAEL Jackson's fairground rides are available to rent.

A total of six attractions from the late singer's Neverland ranch amusement park are available via Butler Amusements, although one of them now has a permanent home at the California State Fair and Exposition in Sacramento.

The rides include the 'Lolli Swing' - featuring a large clown at the centre - which can be hired for $5,000 and a 'Balloon Samba' ride with rental price starting at $8,500.

Other attractions include the 'Dragon Wagon' and the 'Dinos/Jumping Jumbos' - both of which require one day to set up and can be temporarily acquired for $5,000.

Meanwhile, Howard Mann - who is doing business with Michael's mother Katherine Jackson - has indicated the 'Thriller' singer's estate does not care about the fate of his three children.

Questioned about the suggestion the estate is more invested in its future than the kids - Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12 and eight-year-old Prince Michael II, also known as 'Blanket' - and their guardian Katherine, Howard said: "I would ask if the estate has ever met those children, ever spoken to those children. To me it's a farce that they care about what happens to those children."

Howard was last week sent a cease and desist letter by executors of Michael's estate who demanded he stop using his image to promote the 'Jackson Secret Vault Lithographic Collection' in California.
