I was reading my last issue of Carnival Mag (I guess till things pick back up) and noticed some vintage pictures of IAofA.

I didn't know they had a Sky Wheel, never got to see it, but it had their name on it so I know it wasn't booked. I knew they had the Mulligan Wheel and some good other pieces.

Does anyone know what all they carried during their "heyday", at their peak?

I can remember the: Mulligan Wheel, Zipper, Loop O Plane, Scrambler, but only got to see them a couple of times.

Yet another show I traveled with briefly. Worked for some Gypsies who had games booked on. And again, can't tell you a thing about the rides. Just never paid much attention to the Iron. The year or rather few weeks I was there all the rest of the game help were salary so I cleaned up!!! lol. I do remember it as a well lit and clean show.
