Not sure whose Chance Giant that was. It never turned yesterday while we were there. They were working on the rim drives.

Believe the Giant Wheel is a joint venture between Crabtree and Lowery. Wheel was supposed too have come from the West Coast.

I asked the same question of Steve Hinz over on Facebook, and this is the answer he gave me at the time (last April)....

....it belongs to Tony Guadagno of Carnival Midway Attractions, of So. California. It was originaly B & B's of Yuma, Az. This Chance Giant Wheel is a 1993.

It did have "Carnival Midway" stickers on the towers but in a very small print. Nice looking wheel, and they had sod layed in front of the ride! Nice look.

Interesting that Lowery and Crabtree are partnering on the wheel. Hopefully MCW will get more information on the partnership. I can't imagine Lowery's route supporting a Giant Wheel.

Good Pics Dan. Looks like Caspers and Miller isn't there this year.

Their Office top looks like it's one good gust of wind away from a blow down

I couldn't tell if Freddy had pieces in there or not. I thought maybe the Thunderbolt and one of the drop towers could have been Miller's. I haven't seen the show in several years so I wasn't sure. Saw some of their colors on canvas.
