So thought we could keep it going with trips down memory lane. Of course there was Deggeller Magic Midway, but I will start with the Deggeller brothers in the 80s on what I remember:

Sky Wheel
Dutch Giant Wheel
Huss Pirate
Huss Ranger
Huss Breakdance (one year only)
Weber/Huss? 1001 Nights
Toboggan
Swiss Bobs
2 or 3 ground mount bumper cars (think it F&B, European model, and maybe a Lampkin?)
European Far Out Swings
Music Express
Flying Bobs (bought from Strates pretty sure)
2 Tilts
Wave Swinger

Lots of great kiddies and majors.

Had a gas powered Loop O Plane for a while

Laser Dome dark ride

Deggeller had a zyklon coaster around 1980, saw it booked with Strates a couple times. Also had an Enterprise type ride called Gallactica, possibly made by Larson. It was at Ohio State fair in 1985.

Around 1979 they had a Hurricane, Diver , Bumble bee etc. booked with Strates.

Yeah the younger I go the less I remember but I do remember some from the Magic Midway.

Always had big stuff at the Upper SC State Fair that I remember. Sky Wheel, two ferris wheels, lots of majors and specs.

But for some reason I can't remember any music rides till the year Conklin came in, I am figuring they had them, but I just really remember seeing the four the Conklin Deggeller Magic Midway had on the lot for that years fair (Super Himalaya, Cortina Bobs, Music Express booked, and a Flying Bobs).

I really started paying attention to music rides after that.
