Hello Folks,

Someone on Facebook mentioned that the Davis's (Tom & Sharie and/or Tom, Jr.) had or were re-starting a small unit in LA.

Has anyone heard about this?

Thanks,

Mike

They sold out a long time ago didn't they? Seems like I remember back in the late 80s or 90s when that happened, but yeah they had a really nice show from what I could tell in stories and pictures.

Didn't CTS or someone over there have a Huss Pirate they were moving back in those days?

Hello,

CTS (Larry & Joanne Davis) retired in 1998 and kept most their rides. They did sell the Wave Swinger to Michael Jackson, and the Super Round Up to a carnival in Alaska. The Alaska carnival subsequently sold the Super Round Up to a park.

Helm & Sons (Dave Helm & wife Debbie Helm-Davis) started their own show in 1999. They had the Huss Pirate. They now have the CTS Huss Petersburger Sleigh Ride.

Mike
