The rides looked fine during the day, but at night, YUCK! I've never seen so many lights out in my life. It REALLY made the midway look shabby. Are E-14's and 11S14's really that expensive?

I'm sure they were ALL burning when they shut them off the previous night. They must have just happened to burn out the night you were there. [;)]
I went there Friday night. What is the deal with there Hi-Rollar? The cars only moved from gravity when the loop spun. How long has it done this?
My friend Rick Allen was the ringmaster for the show. He needed some help with the coloring book pitch. His son usually helps him out, but he wasn't able to make it that day. I hadn't worked a pitch in 25 years. Way fun [:D]!

Got to see some old friends, made some good money, ate the biggest pork tenderloin sandwich on Planet Earth, and had a blast (OK, I could have done without the 125 mile drive home in the rain![xx(]).

No, Wade does not and has not owned a Hurricane. Although when Frank Z. bought the show 24 years ago, the show owned a Saturn 6, which eventually was sold. Not sure why a Hurricane would be listed on their website.

on wade's website. i looked under the rides section of their site and a saw a ride named hurricane. (listed under major rides) did wade ever own a ride named hurricane and if so was it from hurbetz or dartron?
Yeah with the Michigan State Fair running earlier this year, that is where the second unit is at. Yep, the Wisdom Himalaya needs work, I saw it earlier this year with the third unit, not the prettiest sight. Nice to see the Spin Out is back. Wonder whose Starship is there. Have to agree on the Netterfield's trailers, best food operation I know of (great lemonade, too, lol).


Thanks for posting that, now I know pretty much what is in Escanaba for the Upper Peninsula State Fair (usually about 30 rides or so goes there from what I understand). Looks like Wade pulled it off....

Ussually unit 2 with J-D in charge, unit 1 this year, not as good as it ussualy is. Pink Giant wheel, space loop, starship, spectacular midways huricane, hi roller, big scooter, german fun house, spin out, train, central park, hampton-whale, MGR, scrambler, berris, speedway, samba ballons, catipaler coaster, peter paul, 2nd hampton, kidde tower, bear affair, tunsani slide, dasrton slide, tornado, wisdom himmy.

Show looked good as ussual, nobody on the road has better con. trailers than neitherfields. The wisdom himmy needs several eletricans. Past that worth a drive over.
