Great looking Tempest! But that Scrambler trailer, wow, who painted that!

I don't think I could agree about the Tempest. Ticket booth is interesting on a utility trailer. The generator in the International box truck is classic looking. The scrambler trailer and the red/white trailer are unique.
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

Hey I like this show... This is the very type of show I've always wanted.

I agree that Scrambler trailer was outragous... but could be cured with a simple paint job.

The kid rides all look home made, but I give the guy credit for what he though together.

As for the ticket box on the utility trailer that it crappy, but I understand why he did it, if your only going to be up 1 or 2 days a week, that would help with tear down/ Set up.

I give him a B+

I should have overall this operation looked nice. I also noted most of the rides have the same color theme going on which I think sometimes get old looking on a midway, is something that is very difficult to achieve and takes a lot of time and effort. You can tell that at least the show is trying and probably give them an A for effort.

My ticket box comment was that hauling a separate load for just a ticket booth takes an extra trip. Probably he is a small show and only has short jumps which probably isn't a big deal.

Very small show that's been around for at least 20 years or so. I think it's about the same ride lineup he's always had. There used to be five shows from down in that area and some were related. Gene O' Rides, RG Richards Rides (shuttered), C&J Attractions (shuttered) Great American Carnival and Casey's Rides. Not real sure how or why that western part of Kentucky became home base to that many shows. I need to do a little research and find out.
