Modern had a posting on their FB page about something big coming from Europe. They haven't said what yet, so wanted to see if anyone had any guesses?

Now this is just for fun, I don't have any "inside" information or anything, just thought you all might like to have fun guessing.

My Guess:

Huss Magic

That's my guess and kinda hoping so, but I figure its most likely more something like a music ride, some turbo/gforce ride, or a new fireball type ride, or maybe even a new giant wheel.

I will go with something like a KMG Speed. Someone said the Orbiter has been sitting outside for 3 years already. Such a crying shame! No wonder why I never go to that carnival.

One thing I do like about Modern is some of the classic rides they keep. The Sky Wheel, nice looking Round Up, Spider, believe they still have a Scrambler, Explorer, and they had a nice looking Ghost Train, but I believe they sold it or are selling it.

They used to play the balloon festival down here in the spring and they always brought in a big spread, both classics and newer rides.

They booked in with J&J one year at the Upper SC state fair and brought in some nice rides, the Explorer, some kind of Crazy Flip, the Ghost Train, an unique Giant Wheel that I haven't seen again, and some kiddies.

I'm gonna go with a KMG Tango, or something along that line. Definitely would be an eye catcher in Illinois/Indiana.

Yep, you and others are more in line with most likely what it will be, my guess of the Huss Magic is out there for sure, but hey its fun to wish. I would really like to see that ride in America, have always like that one since it came out.

However, I think it comes in at about 5 loads and a lot to tear down and set up, Huss rides are great but a lot to move. But my favorite and always will be is the TriStar.
