i'm very glad that mcdonagh's amusements is at this years indoor super fair at the pontiac silver dome. i am very glad that their sky wheel is there (how long has it been since a sky wheel as been seen at the indoor superfair) i'm not sure if the fabbri eclipse is there cause i think it might still be in florida (not sure why) i don't think the zyklon will be there cause it takes up too much room. but i'm sure the'll have a fair number of rides there

note: believe it or not. mcdonagh is selling their skymaster ride. it's on the used rides website. if they do sell it. mabye the'll replace it with the floorless version called kamikaze 2 from fabbri

If McDonagh's put up their Zyklon inside the Silverdome, there would be no room for anything else! lol For right now their Zyklon is set up at quarters, which is also the Saginaw County Fairgrounds, and it is not going anywhere (for the time being, maybe in the future). Wade had their Sky Wheel inside the Silverdome back in 1995. McDonagh's Sky Master has been for sale for a while, it is not a big money-making ride for them anymore. It is also listed for sale on their website  as for sale, too. I doubt the Eclipse will be there, and no it would not be in Florida, but at their quarters up in Chesaning. I will be posting a complete ride list either late Monday night or early Tuesday morning, as I will be their Monday evening checking the fair out. McDonagh's website says the Sky Wheel is to be there, so we will see. [:)]

Well, I as mistaken, according to the Pontiac Silverdome website  the Fabbri Eclipse is there, as well as the Sky Wheel. Whoo hoo! Gotta make sure my camera is fired up! lol [:)]

Chris-

Is this the first time you've seen the Eclipse in Michigan? For us folks that saw it last year in Minnesota (and some board members, Texas and IAAPA), it's old news, but I didn't think it got to Michigan.

Chris, my fiance, son and myself are making a trek up there tommorow night actaully to see it. Haven't seen it yet. Had a chance to go to MN to run it but couldn't due to suckerjob schedule.

The Skymaster Chris and I knew about last year. No one rides it for some reason.
