Not a good promotional thing as far as the fair was concerned was it?
Yes but it has nothing to do with the fair still does it?
As for mixing the old rides with the new -were you there back in 1986 when jimmy manning made a sensational re-appearance with his 35year old caterpillar ride?
I wasnt there in 1986 no, but I was vistiting fairs then, this is 2008 not 1986 the teenagers of today are not intersted in old rides (not saying that I am not interested, as I am equally due to my interest and age)
as for saying the skids days are long gone -have you ever been on one??
Yes thanks, Tony Fields and Cookes Skid many a time, and I do agree they are better than waltzers..
