was just wondering, was at bath heritage days last night in maine, midway by smokeys greater shows, how does a show get away with running a mulligan wheel at night with no lights? this is not a temp issue have seen this show 3x this year was the case at all events, i would not ride this due to this reason, and people looking at the ride said same thing, not bashing the show but , man this guy is looooooosssing $$$$$$$$

Was it a pre-slough or does it always run it that way?
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

Here's a hint, lights are not required on any ride. Its not a safety requirement. Its flash plain and simple. To put your fears at ease, it may be a case of waiting for a part or wiring that can be done only when the ride is down and stripped.

Conklins big Dutch wheel did. Lights were put on the day after the fair opened, and came off the day before the end.

Remember that Kenny?

Talked to Bud, and he simply said they haven't quite figured out the root of the problem.

Best suggestion I've seen so far, lol.

Lighting on a wheel is not a safety issue. If it were, the ride would not be operating. Period.

Actually I did about 9 years ago, that and all new speller and chaser for his starship and went through the bumper car lights also along with a lot of other repairs, that lasted a year and a half!

That's one of the reasons I called him.

Not his fault, but it was one of those things where the crew would break stuff faster than I could fix it!

I was suppose to see him a couple weeks ago when I went up there with the family, but time ran out and my in-laws money ran out, so I came back to KY by myself!

But again, that's another story!
