Just think....If Hitler kept going and Won we would have that stuff over here.....I for one am Glad we kicked his azz....

There is a Merry-Go-Round like the one pictured in the Movie HellBoy. I'm suprised nobodys actually mentioned it. Probley because they don't know anything about it. It's Easy to tell what a Zipper is. But this Foreign stuff is all Greek to me.

3rd pic down...Girl in lower right corner holding her ears like the guy in the sign abover her head....lol That would be the Extreme ride pic.

Yeah, the rides over there are full of flash, and look great. Notice the advertisement on the Tropical Trip as part of the back wall scenery? Never seen advertising on rides quite as blatant as that (other than the Coca-Cola can on Wood's Magnum). Wonder how much that cost. lol

British/European rides are nice/different, but as far as I'm concerned nobody builds 'em like the good ol' U.S.A.

The reason why British and European rides have such great flash and the owners take such great pride in their equipment is that there are no orginized traveling carnivals in Europe like we have here in North America. Families there own 1-5 rides and there for they can afford to spend a large percentage of their income for all the extras. City Fetes/ Festivals/ Markets ect. are run by a local commettee and in order to ensure your return you don't want to bring them something less than the best.

Also alot of those events last up to 1 month in length and you can afford to put up the extra flash, and only moving 4-7 times per year also cuts down on the wear and tear.

I hope that helps.

Why are they Strange rides? Because, you never seen them in person? I do like to check out game pics from across the pond. Not to many floating around. I seen some round center joints I would like to copy if I got to see some more pics of them....
