That was good story on the Calgary Stampede that Matt has.

Did anyone see that Spider, looks really sharp, I wonder is that NAME's old spider redone or one booked in?

Article said they had the log flume as well so guess they are still using one of them.

The Spider and a few other rides are booked in from West Coast Amusements, they do that every year there and when Saskatoon happens it's a West Coast Amusements midway with around five or six of the big NAME attractions booked in.
