Now C'SPin, let's be real here. Why would three different shows have rides at one WQ? No, it is all set up and ready to go. Now the Rainbow, that is in WQ getting refurbished.

Mr. Hurley, As CEO of two large carnivals don't you think it's about time you looked into the cost savings associated with consolidation. Allow me to suggest a couple of names here. Michigan Midway Entertainment, or maybe Midwest Midway Entertainment. Just look at the potential for savings on such things as glue, decals, models kits. By swaping models back and forth you could save a small fortune not to mention the labor cost for constructing and maintaining all of those models. Then there is the additional costs for space to house all of those models. I think before your expenses catch up to you, you need to seriously look into the benifits here. Let me know which way you decide to go here. LOL. [8D]
