I dont post a whole lot around here(consistant lurker though), and I know the topic has come up before about Farrow picking up Zamperla rides for a season just to kick them back. I know in passing one of the US Zamperla Sales Rep, Name is Mark if any of you have dealt with him, asked him on a one of the newsgroups and he says,

"The Shocker and Disk'O were both tested on the road with Farrow, as
they have a very impressive fair route, which helps in gauging two
things- how road worthy the rides are, and how popular they are amongst the fair going public. The Shocker is currently owned by Reed
Exposition Midway in Texas. It's actually set up at the Fiesta right
now in downtown San Antonio. The Disk'O that was with Farrow was the
floor model at last year's IAAPA, and was sold to a park in China at
the show (Farrow reported the ride doing very well, but probably wasn't in the need to add any major equipment following the NAME
announcement)."

Few nifty factoids there amongst which Reed picked up Shocker.

I guess if a Factory is gonna "Field Test" a new ride what better show than one that's Top Notch and has a route to put the thing to the test.
