Big A has showed up (second unit) for the second year of a new spring still date. Was working Thursday and rode by the fairgrounds where they are set up in the parking lot. Looked like a nice midway but they are here earlier this year, last year was about mid April when they came in.

Rides I saw:

Eli Double Eagle (must be new to show and maybe replaced Eli 12 seat?)
Chaos
Pharaohs Fury
Zero Gravity
Free Fall
Scrambler (thank goodness someone still moves a ground mount)
2 backend pieces
MGR
Umbrella rides
other kiddies
Concessions

May try to get out there this coming week and visit.

I like moving a GM Scambler, IMHO the looks of a GM Scrambler all silver with clean Al tubs, full deluxe lighting package looks better than any Sizzler of Mixer.

I wonder what the Bid A paid for that Scrambler, how many spots it has played, how many people it has run, and ho many times it has paid for itself.

It has to be one on the most reliable, easiest to maintain rides of all time.
Ride the Zipper?

yes it is having moved one myself, loved that ride, hate to see so many replaced with Sizzlers.
