Saw on Usedrides.com that Ed Inners/Inners Shows has 2 Spectacular rides for sale; Hi-Roller and Music Express. Is he downsizing or just trying to sell a couple of pieces to make room for other pieces? Thanks.

Hmmm, they were two of his big rides. The drop tower is the only other big ride. In my opinion he had some other rides that he should be selling that were in worse condition. I will have to wait and see what is brought to PA.

I agree with you Benjibear; looks like he would be trying to sell the merry mixer, hustler and or trabant instead of those more modern spectacular pieces?

I was gonna say eliminate payments, or take the money and buy something else.

Yes, I saw the Hustler last year when he was in Marrietta, PA. The Sidewinder, I don't think I saw that last year but the year.

Inners does an excellent job of posting his route on the web site. The route from 2009 is on there now. Hope he updates for this year:

I don't know about the Hi-Roller, but the music express is usually a pretty good grossing ride. Looks like he would be getting rid of the trabant instead of the music express. Does Inners still have his Sky Diver? Now that would be a ride that I would think about getting rid of. That is not a very high grossing ride, is it? Plus it takes a lot of men and a lot of time to put up and take down.

You guys seem to be missing the point here. A trabant or a Hustler is most likely paid for. They probably are dumping some debt off the back end. It doesn't matter if the Hi-roller grosses twice as as the Hustler when the bottom line is what really counts. Its about what we put in our pockets. At the end of th day, shows are out there to make money, not a photo shoot....

I had thought about that 2ndgencarnie, but if a show wants to continue getting or keeping good spots, don't you need to have a lineup that produces large grosses, which in turn should gross large $$? Thanks.

The Roller is nothing special and the Express is a punk ride without a mic man.

Obviously he wants to cash in those pieces for other purchases or coin.
Replacing, does not have to be an option.
