Hello Folks,

Surprised to see Davis Enterprises listing their Wave Swinger and Giant Wheel for sale on used rides.com.

This is the link to the rides:

https://www.usedrides.com/rides/200114
https://www.usedrides.com/rides/200117


Has anyone heard why these rides are listed for sale? Seems odd that they would sell them off. There must be some sort of a story behind the listing.

Would love to see a carnival that plays the central states pick up the wave swinger.

Greetings,

I may end up answering my own question. Davis Enterprises will no longer be servicing the CA Mid State Fair. They had provided the midway for last 15 years or so. Per staff at the Mid State Fair, the midway contract was put out to bid and only California Carnival Company and Helm & Sons placed bids. Helm was awarded the contract.

As far as I now Davis no longer has any fair dates on their routes. This may account for the listing of Giant Wheel and Wave Swinger on usedrides.com.

Too bad. I really enjoyed the Davis show.

Mike
