yep going to be a good year for wonderland/frangipani/jlj combined shows. a deal was set this summer for the combined operation to expand and with secret meetings being held in michigan this summer disquised as a fair tour to plan a southern route as michigan slows down after labor day. show will come thru carolinas and watch out florida. looking to take breiter spots as booking agent is working hard. this combined modeling operation will rival the NAME merger as ideas were gained from participants in that merger. tried not to let out this secret but it is time to make the move.

I would model a midway , yet would be afraid for my Cummons models, for falling onto the floor. Off-topic here, but i used to draw drawings of rides. I have about 25+ drawings of most rides on the midway. I showed the drawings to Bobby that runs the SideWinder on Inners, he said Ben, you should be a designer. Well, in school today , bored as hell again, LOL, i was thinking up something and drew down a future carnival ride possibly. Not sure if KMG rides would make it, but it's alot simiilar to the Freak Out & FireBall rides. My invention is the " Crazy Spin ". It consists of 2 rides, 2 booms swinging back & forth 'til they loop over top, away from one another, alot like the Kamikaze/Sky Master booms. The turntables will look like UFO's.

While rocking 'til they loop, the UFO gondolas will spin like the FireBall gondola / claw. I wonder if KMG could make it?, wow, i can picture such a ride in my mind. That would be a super addition to Mid-America's midway, Strates', Reithoffer's, anyone's really! The KMG Crazy Spin! What'd you all think of it? The signs will look alot similar to the Kamikaze signs at the top & say Crazy Spin on them, with the top of the C going into a swirl, neon colors, the works.
