Have a ride list for the Orange Unit? Or better yet, pics?

The last time I saw the flip'n'out, it looked rough and needed some maintenance.
Does the blue unit still have a thunder bolt?
Also, I thought they sold the Flitzer after it killed a kid in 2001 at the York fair?

You thought wrong. The Flitzer is now the Indy 500. The Thunder Bolt is now the Tidal Wave.

KMG Speed often appears on the Blue unit too.
boltz
Friday, May 4, 2007 11:10:05 PM
The Speed jumps from unit to unit but is with the Blue unit most of the time. Just like the Wild Mouse. It plays with the Blue unit but does visit the orange unit for 3 spots this year.

Someone told me they sold the Flitzer after the accident. I wonder if it will ever visit York again.

Tornado,

Thanks for the ride lists. Anybody have any idea how many rides from the orange unit they put in at their 4th of July event in PA?
I've never been "with it", just been an interested observer of carnivals for more than 50 years.
Johnny's United Shows..."A Family Tradition" and "All for Fun, Fun for All".

I'd highly doubt that it will ever go back to that fair. Accidents on a ride tend to make fair boards gun-shy about having it return, even with a name change.
