GREAT pictures…

The poster had asked in one of the pictures what the 2 racked trailers are. Well that would be the Euro Slide.

I noticed that RCS has there NEW Zamperla Spinning Coaster. Does anybody know what has become of there other Maurer Shone (spell is wrong) Spinning Coaster and why they went from the old one to the NEW one? Never saw the old one in person, only in pictures, but it looked nice…

Also in the picture of the entrance gate at Orange County I noticed a KMG Speed. Who out west got one? I thought Reithoffer had the only one in the US. Guess not…

Also i love that westcoasters site ive seen them pictures and ive been wanting to post them hear but i saw somthing that said no hotlinkin gto other sites involving rides oh wait my bad that was another site i go to woopps........

Anyways i use that site to stay in touch with whats happening back home.....In amusement park wise and during summer carnivals since they report on del mar, oc and la county fairs.I was wondering why rcs went through three coaster the Wild mouse ride then spining coaster then this new one.I know they dont have the wild mouse but what about the spinning one.It looks like thier down grading since the new one seem like it might take less trailers, aND with that wheel i dont balme them 16 trailers wow

Ahhh,sunny california. Great pics,love "the winner"...thanks for sharing.
So, in a few years, if you're walking down a midway and see a Sixcat or a Swinger or a bucket, look around. You might recognize an old man with a smile on his face. Especially if he's saying, "Hey Buddy, can I ask ya?" -sixcat,circa. 2007

Daniel,
Not here to argue and or cause problems, but that is definitely a KMG Seed (may have a different name but it’s a KMG version). It has sold arms and not open arms like the Fabbri Booster. It looks just like Reithoffer’s, which seen many times.
Look at page 6 of the album, the last picture (the entrance gate one) on the far right hand side. That is a KMG…

BTW GREAT pictures thou and thanks for sharing them…

I think what Daniel meant was the same thing you were saying Matt, that it is a KMG one called the Booster. I would appear to me that they replaced their Fabrii one with the KMG version. Smart choice, much easier to move, and better looking if you ask me.

Daniel,
I know you were not trying to argue, I just want to make sure that you knew I was not trying to start an argument either:-)
JimmyD looks like you are right…
WOW Between RCS and Bishop lots of KMG pieces now!

RCS
G-Force
Experience
Booster (Speed)

Bishop
Spin Out

Actually I’m not sure who the Booster belongs to, may be Bishops???

nice pics from both fairs, 14 new rides for ray cammack shows is quite impressive, by the way, the cyclone is a brand new wisdom tornado. they traded in the older one and got a newer model. i like that k.m.g speed, it's the second one in the u.s and most recent one k.m.g has built. 6 k.m.g rides at 1 fair is very impressive. can't wait to see ray cammack in houston next year.
