I just saw they replaced the web cam with a streamlined video cam, so everything is real time, and it overlooks the whole midway, its difficult to see it now, b/c of the sun lighting, but i think its off to a good start, its so kewl though. They must have read my feed back mentioning they should get one, i doubt it, but you never know... here is a link.

Thanx shiftgreen,I'm going tomorrow morning,I'll be taking some pics and will post asap.
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

awww I don't like this one, I liked the other one better because you could see up close on the midway. I was gonna have my husband go stand by one so his kids could see him there darn it [:(]

no this is this years.. but ealier today for about an hr or so it was a real time video camera... meaning it was playing real time instead of snapshots. I wish they would go back to the streamline, im not sure why they got rid of it after the first hr. I hope it will come back.

thanks shift! I understand now, I have to agree I would like to see stream, also, but any thing to see the fair is good ! I wish that they had picked a better pic then to see the kiddy ride Titanic, My old boss runs that now. I would like to have seen some of the spectaculars. I remember one year we played raleigh that it snowed so hard that you could not see one side of the midway to the other ! now that was something to see !

I watched the Cam last night and it was working great. The shots are amazing.[:0]
I didn't see a streaming video but the Camera that is shooting the still shots is very clear. I can see the expressions on the kids on the Titanic and the Busy Bee...Awesome.
Makes me want to make a "come back".
