Found this in a PS contest on Fark.

When I first saw this pic, I was like, wait a minute, that fence and signage looks familiar. Sure enough, it was Pugh Shows equipment.

And I also swear the guy running the ride is my old friend Jeff Burkhart, whom I've not seen in 6-8 years now.

Just a weird coincidence on the web I reckon.

hey katie, correct me if i am wrong but it had to have been atleast 2 years a go because the small popper is right behind the hamptons in the picture and the pizza (i think) is right behind it.... we have put the big popper there followed by chuck's the last few years... man i dont miss those hamptons in the offseason... i just wanted to blow them up sometimes on teardowns this year....

The truth comes out- he's the Hampton King!! Hahaha, just kidding man. I have touched a few hamptons before in my life too.. lucky for me they were the trailer mounted versions [;)]

Yeah... I can understand why they racked them like that; I am guessing to cut down on the loads. Perhaps Oscar can tell us more [:)]

The trailer mounted ones are simple.. rack the bikes, take 4 pieces of track off, fold the rafters, sweeps, canvas, and raise the walls. If you have a few guys who know what they are doing, it goes super fast [:D]

Im not taking Skings side here, but im sure he mean't no disrespect to Cliff, it was just his personal opinion of the racking of the rides, im sure theres stuff people have done that you don't like, just a matter of opinion....

Katie and Cliff are good people. I have absolutely no clue who this Scorpionking dude is... but let's not stir a pot, we have enough of that on this board already.

What's up with the dude on the segway scooter? Is he really inside the fence while the ride is running or is the pic doctored? It looks weird.

Man I always end up apologizing.... i didnt mean it how it sounded and before i could change or delete it my comp crashed and i didnt have time to change it.... what i meant is that it is a very odd way of doing it but i couldnt make it better my self.... and as far as the knuckle boom goes it work but it is hard to operate if you dont know what you are doing but i learned it pretty well... what i said was outta joking frustration......
