What was the set up / tear down time on the Sky Wheel?
Seems I remember our crew could have it down in about 4 or 5 hours, quicker some of the time. However, we didn't have as many lights on it as other shows did, just the star lights, rim lights, and lights in the towers.
Going up they took their time sometimes so a little longer, but we made a lot of Sunday jumps, so they would have it down on Sunday morning and back up for Monday opening.
They would race with the Music Fest crew on tear down, normally of course the Sky Wheel was always down first except for one time the Fest crew beat them. However, it wasn't really fair because the Fest crew had pre-stripped so much it was a joke. They had taken the top off, all scenery on the back top, removed the backside platforms/fence, and the inside scenery. If the ride inspectors had seen that on Saturday they would have had a heart attack.
