quote:Originally posted by Skywheel1969The Illinois State Fair is just 2 weeks away. I was wondering if anyone knew what rides would be on the midway. I have given up on ever seeing/riding a Skywheel (my fav [8D]!), Skydiver, Zyklon, Kamikaze, Toboggan, Enterprise, Rock-O-Plane, Rainbow, and Zipper.
quote:Originally posted by Skywheel1969There was a Skydiver there in 2002 but wasn't there last year. When I went to ride on it in 02 I was told I had to have someone ride with me. I had to come back a few days later and bribe a friend to ride it me. I DID turn her into a Skydiver fan and I think she was more disappointed than I was when there was no Skydiver last year!In my honest opinion, there hasn't been a decent ride line-up since 1989, the last year I ever rode a Skywheel. I rode my first Skyweel in 1978 at age 8 and kept riding it every year (at least 10 times each fair) until 1989. I guess I will just have to settle for all of the fantastic Skywheel pics from Mr. Hurley!
