Does anyone have a copy of any articles in AB or Carnival, or perhaps some old press releases from when the Chance Giant Wheel debuted? If so, could you send them my way?

I know I have a copy of Carousel magazine from 1989 that has the info. What I do know was that it was delivered to CVS in Port Huron, MI, in 1988. It came on 3 trailers originaly, but was to heavey so a 4th trailer was added. I will look around and see if I can find the issue, and see what info it had. I am sure the dates of the spot are in there somewhere.

That would have been July 1988, at the Bluewater Festival. Last time CVS played it was either 1991 or 1992 I believe. Elliott Amusement Company played it after that and then McDonagh's Amusements to the present day, although the dates change now every year, always late June/early-mid July though.
