ACME Catapult is a group of friends in central Illinois who built a powerful award-winning catapult. The machine is entered in events and exhibitions all around the country. The ACME Catapult team started in 1996 with a much smaller catapult designed to throw pumpkins at a local Pumpkin Festival Contest. Since then the catapult has grown into a tandem axle monster capable of hurling refrigerators and lawn tractors high into the air, or throwing a ten-pound pumpkin over 2,000 feet!
