It looks fun and all, but every fair midway I look at nowadays is starting to look the same, but its always been that way, I was just too young and unexperienced to realize it.

John, sorry you're so jaded, but I wish that the fairs in my area, the midatlantic, would have half the rides that are pictured. Everything in Texas is bigger. Even for a flat-ride junkie such as myself, I think I'd have to stop and take a break. And, it looks like you'd have to rob a bank to ride it all. Eight tickets for one of the rides? That's insane.
If someone makes a post and you post-quote it right beneath it, you're wasting bandwidth. Think before you press the button.

If the fair didn't run an independant midway then the prices would be ALOT cheaper and there would be less rides. There are no less than 15 ride/carnival operators showcasing their rides this year.

Just a few small corrections:
-the Eclipse is from Fabbri, not Moser
the Fast Trax, unlabeled, is a Fabbri, too
-the Techno Power is from Tivoli, they are merely repped in the U.S. by AmTech
I am looking forward to my first visit to the fair in a week!

And yes, I am a sucker for any looping flat.
