No it is not some information about some rides here in Europe this time. But a little game where you can use your imagination.

Compare your dreamfair. These are the very simple rules.
-Tell us if you want to place your dreamfair into a city or a open field. If you want to place into a city, tell us wich city and why.
-You may name up rides from Europe or anywhere else in the world. But tell why you choose that ride.
-Wich music do you want to use?

I want to start [:)] .

City: San Fransisco, in the middle of the city. Because I saw pictures of US fairs that are placed on open fiedls only, so it would be a challenge to place a fair into a city.

Rides:
-Action House (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/action_house.jpg), because this is a great looking ride.
-Alpina Bahn (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/alpina_bahn.jpg), because the size of the rollercoaster.
-Bellevue (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/bellevue.jpg), because the size of the wheel.
-Break Dance No.2 of Bonner (http://ridesdb.com/nl/db/ride_pic.php?ridepic_id=2446&ride_id=318&num=2), because the great looking paint and it's size.
-City Hopper (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/city_hopper.jpg), a great family ride.
-Cyber One (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/cyber_one.jpg), because the paints and the speed)
-Discovery of Stappers (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/dicovery_b.jpg), because those wet rides you can get [:P]
-Flying Circus (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/flying_circus.jpg), a wicked ride with some great movements.
-Fun Factory (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/fun_factory.jpg), a very fast ride, but it is also a family ride.
-Haunted Mansjion (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/haunted_mansjion.jpg), because every fair has to need a dark ride.
-Explorer (http://ridesdb.com/nl/db/ride_pic.php?ridepic_id=17538&ride_id=2411&num=0), also a fast family ride. And this one is looking good.
-Ikarus (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/ikarus.jpg), a great and huge family ride. The rides you get are awesome.
-Magic (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/magic.jpg), also a very fast family ride.
-Move-It (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/move_it_w.jpg), a great looking rides for the people who dare to ride this one.
-No Limit XXL (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/no_limit_xxl.jpg), a great looking ride with fast rides.
-Pirates Adventure (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/pirates_adventure.jpg), a great looking ride with decoration.
-Power Polyp (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/power_polyp.jpg), because every fair need to have a polyp, and this one is very fast.
-Top Spin (http://ridesdb.com/nl/db/ride_pic.php?ridepic_id=5645&ride_id=438&num=3), a awesome looking ride and it's huge.
-Snow Jet (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/snow_jet.jpg), because it is a family ride.
-Space Roller (http://ridesdb.com/nl/db/ride_pic.php?ridepic_id=5073&ride_id=244&num=1), just for who dare to ride it [:)].
-The First in The World autoscooter (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/the_first_in_the_world.jpg), because every fair have a bumpercars.
-Wave Swinger (http://ridesdb.com/nl/db/ride_pic.php?ridepic_id=14356&ride_id=2048&num=0), a great looking family ride.
-WildWasser3 (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/wildwasser3.jpg), a huge ride for a huge city.
-XXL Afterburner (http://funfairzone.areazone.nl/ride_img/xxl.jpg), a huge and awesome ride.

Games:
-Jackpot (3 times because of the size of the fair), a little bit of wagers.
-Pucher games (also 3 times), a great trailer with some fun
-Pull a rope (7 times), for the kids who want to win a prize.
-Throwing cans (5 times), for the kids who want to win a prize.
-Roll Over (ball rolling game (7 times)), if you want to win a great prize like a minibike and else.
-Skee Ball (3 times), great fun game
-Grab a price (5 times), also a bit of wagers, but it is fun.

Food:
-Chineese food (3 times)
-Fish (3 times)
-Sugar Spider (5 times)
-Popcorn and peanuts (5 times)
-Pofferjes (Dutch Bakkery (3 times))
-Oil Balls (Dutch Bakkery (3 times))

All of those above are very delicious.

Music:
I would like the ride owners choose their own music, this because of the difference of taste of the people who visit the fair.

So, let go your imagination.

If you don't know wich ride you can choose, you can look at the sites below:

http://www.ridesdb.com 
http://funfairzone.com  (Look into "Database" or into "Reports")
http://stargate64.de  (Look into "Fahrgeschafte")

For me, I'm just worried about the rides. I choose these rides because they are what I care for. I'm picky too. It would be anywhere close to me. The closer to me, the better. Wristbands for the whole fair. You can go on a ride more than 3 times!!

All Around's Force 10 (Tivoli)
Windy City Amusements Zipper (Chance) and Predator (Tivoli Orbiter)
Alpine Amusements Wipeout (Chance)
A Yo-Yo that tilts (It might be Windy City Amusements because they are getting one.)
All Around's Scat (Hi-Lite)
Windy City's Cliffhanger (Dartron)
Windy City's Bumper Cars (Majestic)
Windy City's Tilt-A-Whirl (Sellner)

Astro's (NAME) Spin Out (Tivoli/KMG)
Fantasy's Super Shot (ARM)
All Star's (NAME) Power Surge (Zamperla) and Fuererball (KMG)
All Star's Spider (Eyerly)
A Super Sizzler that goes backwards and forwards. I don't know where that is right now.
Spectacular Midways Music Fest (Chance)
Rainbow Valley's Freak Out (KMG)
Zyklon (like at the Wisconsin State Fair)-I don't know who has that ride.

Windy City's Swinger
Crazy Surf (Sartori) (someone that has it)
Shocker (Zamperla)
Gee Wizz (Wisdom)
Space Roller and Remix (I haven't be on, but would probably love these rides if I did. That look awesome.)
Musik Express (Majestic)

That's it.

No games or food? What do you collect for rent? Nothing? I hope you make a mint on the ride gross, because you're going to need the money after payroll, maintianence, moving the show, and paying the committee all the folks that booked in their percentage of the take. No wheel? No kiddie rides? A fair is not just rides only....

Very cool and thought out Dream sequence....Why San Fran? You need a city that has a little more level ground...There are plenty of spots on City Streets here in the States...But for the Big Spots we have FairGrounds...Why go thourgh the headache of trying to set up on the streets if you don't need too....


Why do you need so many duplicates of concessions? You need more of a Varity...Also a few of those joints won't work here in the States...

Peanuts, that's a no-no for the most part...Atleast around the Midway.

What are Oil Balls and Sugar Spiders?

Also if you got some good pics of Games with Signage on how to play that would be cool too....

I will say your post is one of the Better if not best "Dream Carnival" I seen here....

At your first question: I think, that if you are setting up a fair into the streets, more people will come because the cities are very crowed, so more people will see there is a fair. And you know, more people is more money.

At you second question: I think that my dreamfair took 7 or more streets, so it would be skilful to places more concessions.

At your third question: I know you didn't hear about oil balls because it is a Dutch tradition. We eat them at the fairs and at new years eve. Here is a picture of oil balls.

As you can see, you can cover it with some powder sugar.
About the sugar spider. It is like a cloud on a stick and it's very sweet. Here is a picture of a sugar spider.

But I have a question for you:
Why do some joint's not work in the States?

there are pics of the rope joint...it is called a sting game here in the States...

As far as playing in the City because thats where the people is...Well, things are different here in the States...First off the people live in the Suburbs...they will drive to a Major Fair. And unless your use to the City they will stay away from it..Let alone walking City Streets at night...American Familys perfer the relitive safety of a Fairgrounds...IMHO
