There was a discussion about the Drew Expo Enterprise here a couple of years ago, and it was said by a few folks it came from Conklin, hence my earlier post in this topic. If it didn't, okay. Just going by info that was originally posted when they got the ride.

I saw a pic of the Kroon Wheel set up in Paris, everything was painted back to white and the gondolas were black and white, very UGLY.

So NAME is the continuation of conklin? That's cool. But it seems like RCS is what conklin wanted to be. Conklin was running some euro style rides especially with the drop of fear, and the doople looping coaster, sad it didn't stay in our region tho. The biggest fall the hardest I guess.

IIRC before it made it to Drew it was owned by Amusement Logistics (Independant from Winnipeg). They had it booked the last year that Conklin did the CNE before the NAME sell out. for a year after that it was booked in with Roberston Amusements and Funland Outdoor Amusements at their larger spots.
