if you copy and paste this link into your browser you can see from a distance the Wade green and white large wheel going up in Ocean City MD where I guess it will be parked for a while due to Covid restrictions elsewhere. Look to the left of the tall coaster. As of this posting the towers are in the air but no spokes yet. You cannot see it closeup, but you can see the crane moving if you enlarge the window

Is their show back on the road? There are rumors of possibly no carnival for the State Fair in Mo.

I wonder if that salt air will hurt that nice pretty paint job on the wheel. Right now it still looks new

there are several Deggeller rides booked in at Trimpers in OC also this summer, probably a half dozen or so

Looks like they're ready to start hanging tubs.

I imagine given the note on that thing they're much more concerned about generating some revenue than a little salt air..

Yep, a short amount of time most likely will not hurt it, and the extra revenue could help and keep employee's busy.

Round Up, Fun Slide, Scrambler, Spin the Apples, Tilt, Super Shot, Madagascar fun house, Hang ten, Traffic Jam, Happy Swing
These 10 are rented from Deggeller for the summer although who knows what'll become of them come August as 6 are regular attendees at Maryland State Fair: Tilt, Super Shot, Madagascar (redone Hofbrahaus), Hang Ten, Traffic Jam, and Happy swing. The others rarely go to MD although usually seem to end up at State Fair of Virginia. One thing's certain, if these skip MD and meet the show in VA, it would mean only the Majestic music express would be the music ride as i'm not sure if the Huss Super Nova should really be in that category, and the midway would loose one of the highest pieces being the super shot which is a mainstay and landmark over there so it would be funny to see the State fair for the first time since 2010 with just one tower (Vertigo)

I'm curious how this will play out for both parties involved since last time I checked, MD is still forging ahead with having the fair come late august.

I imagine they'll be no shortage of rides wanting to get into any decent spot this year...

I thought Deggeller got rid of their last Round Up, since they had the Zero Gravity, so I guess they still have one of them?

I believe at one time they had about two of them, and they also owned a Round Up type ride they bought from the Knoxville Worlds fair that had platforms around the side, and more flash, but smaller cage I believe.

Atlas used to have a Round-Up type piece called the "Gyro", I think maybe it was a one-off, but it was sure nice to up and down, looked good too. As I remember, it was center-drive rather than rim.

Anyone ever seen one?

Thunderbolt, I'm not sure how long Deggeller's had the current purple and blue round up they're calling "Super Round Up" these days, I caught it on the large unit in Fredericksburg, VA last august where it only lifted 30 degrees and was squealing horribly, had also caught it at 206 State Fair of Virginia, the fairs in Maryland including the state fair always get the Zero Gravity instead.

That same Round-Up was at the York Fair the first year they had it. They since added LEDs and painted their shows colors.

Can’t remember exactally what it looked like
But I ave a photo somewhere
