If your talking the KMG Fireball if it was the ex Conklin one it would have had Alberta plates on the trailers.

Does anyone know what rides are on each Name unit that travels? I never knew to much about Name except they are combined units of other shows.

Someone told me they were headed to Brunswick ga next, but that is just word of mouth, so not sure if correct. In addition I don't think they brought whole unit.

Im pretty sure Conklin's had Conko Circus in the name plate as it was bought as a partner ship of Lauther and Conklin before the buyout.

That's definitely most of the "All Star" NAME unit. As for the fireball that is correct too. All Stars fireball is the former CVS Feuerball. You can tell by its European dog house they still use, and different paint scheme. This is the 3rd season for that paint job.

As for the Conklin Fireball it still has the original paint scheme. As mentioned above the name plate says Conko Circus.
