That Musik Express was the first Bertazzon model to be imported to the us back around 94(ish) by Pugh Shows. It is now owned by Mike Featherstone's Gold Star Amusements. It ceased to use the "caterpillar" feature before the end of the Pugh era due to maitenence woes.



Round Up and TM Scrambler still travel with the Mid-America units.

The Roundup was in need of some serious TLC when I saw it last year.

Any Super Round-Ups still going?

The last (only?) one I saw was at Cal Expo in '77 and was owned by Western Pacific Shows. I think Western Pacific (the Lopez Brothers?) went tits-up years ago, but they had a lot of nice stuff back then...

Ride the Zipper?

Looks like a great lineup! I would love to see the double decker merry go round and interesting that they have two mega drops.

Most older Fireballs are down pending new sweeps and cars. Not sure what NAME intends to do on that issue.

Looks like they replaced it with the two new Technical Park rides that they added. One is in Miami as we speak.

That double decker is beautiful in person, very nice looking MGR, but I wonder if it has the same capacity as the PTC MGR that he dropped years ago. But even if it doesn't its a "one of kind" in the United States....at least on the road.

thanks Justin makes sense. I know 3 shows (Butler, Reithoffer, Strates) that have done the new sweep and car work and have the ride back out.

Drew updated his FireBall tubs, I noticed none of the new tubs have lights on the back like the old models, was that by design for easy inspection or was it because they were just in a hurry to fill everyone's orders?

Both Strates and Wade have lights. Not sure otherwise.

Ok thanks, haven't seen Strates up close yet, Drew's model didn't have lights anymore, but he got his back on the road pretty quick so maybe that was just because it was a rush job then.
