Prior to the show, the family purchased a 33m Lamberink Giant Wheel from Peter Theunisz’s UsedRidesEurope.com. The new wheels play various stand-alone spots as well as larger spots on the Kissel route. The wheel is unlike any other with a Venetian theme, with statues and employees in Venetian-themed uniforms.
Kissel also reported that they are closing the deal with a new Dark Ride and a super spectacular ride from Mondial.
Vehicles weren’t the only items the show purchased. The show features six Freightliner Cascadia tractors, new cranes, two Semcor/gullwing generator units, two Lifetime Bank Houses, Showmen Supplies light towers, four shaded rest areas, and a new game trailer.
