Thanks Chris that answers my questions then. I know it is sometimes hard to keep the names straight when your going through that many pics, I just figured that since I noticed it I would ask about it. I like the Glasshouse on Poor Jacks, it is just differnt enough to make it seem interesting.

Thanks Jimmy. When labeling the photos they are tiny on the screen, so I guess or leave them blank and go back and look at them, but those two I missed. The Mardi Gras with Poor Jack I was told was built in house by Paul Huseman (sp?), taking the basic frame of an old fun house. It was "new" on their midway in 2003, looks beautiful.

The Glass House owned by A&M was indeed Wade's, they sold it in 2003. It was new in 1994 and was themed Clown City, then repainted to the Crystal Mine, and then the current theme in 2000.

Well, the pics look good as usual. However, you do have one pic labeled MB Expo that is actually Poor Jacks funhouse and you have AofA's Thriller labeled as Dillman in the night shots. I did have a question though. The A&M glasshouse that seems to have been booked with Wade, that was the same one that used to belong to them isnt it? or was it always an independents that was just booked with them most of the time?

Thanks Boils. As for how CTA looked, they looked good for the most part. The turret on the Casino needed some work, the lights on the Sizzler tubs were missing and the holes covered with the white tape you see, and the Renegade needed paint bad, though in their defence on that, they had only recently got it from United Shows and had not done any work to it. The Kamikaze looked beautiful, having been recently rebuilt by Showman's. The Loop-O-Plane looked great, one of the nicest one's I have seen, 2ndgen's fun house looked great, all the kiddies looked good, though the inflate slide was very dirty. All the other rides were very clean and well painted. The joints were clean. Bulb count was very good, though I only got a few night shots because it was raining that night (Friday), so I did not venture past the kiddie area.

By the way, in a couple of shots you can see MCW's own Bryan getting some video, and 2ndgen is chillin' out next to his joint.

Any further info on cta's routing for 05, I would expect major changes?

Judging on the pictures the ride quality looks fine but you can't tell from web pics.
What condition was the equipment in?

I hear ya. Just so happens Sunday afternoon was the only time I had available to spend there, got there at about 3pm, and they closed the midway at 5pm for an hour to give the help a break, but I decided to head out. Very nice show, next July I will try and get there on Saturday so I can spend more time there and get some night shots. That's what I would like to do anyways. lol
