Look at this beautiful Rampage in Las Vegas from back in 2016. I thought I would be seeing these make a showing on State Fair midways with the sky wheel being so rare now. I believe there is a show in Kansas that has one. Can anyone name a show that has one and why has this ride not been more popular with the big shows? I would love to see this ride along with a Y Factor on the same midway.

That looks like Wold Amusements Rampage. They had it up at the Winter Wonderland in Cal Expo in Sacramento 2 years ago. I rode it a few times and took videos. It gave great rides. He purchased it from Ken Johnston's show several years ago and I believe he had it completely refurbished with LED lights. I think Wisdom had something to do with the refurbishment but not sure.

There was one at the Missouri State Fair with Reed Expo several years ago and it seemed to do well during the time I was there. I have some video of it somewhere I need to find. There was either Murphy Brothers Jaguar Express or a Bayern Curve there that year I am not sure which one. The Rampage had some of the older campers there talking about how they missed seeing the Sky Wheel on the midway.
