Would love to see this show in person, you can tell its a first class operation. Kinda sad they dropped the Trooper and Scrambler...but understand why.

Yep, your right I believe, they got the Sizzler and I think they dropped the Trooper for a Cliff Hanger didn't they?

Lumberton was the last spot for our Paratrooper in 2015. We traded it for a used Zipper. The Zipper was refurbished immediately and debuted in Pikeville, KY in 2016.

The Sizzler was purchased (along with the Raiders, Samba Balloon and Speedway) in 2013. All four rides were immediately refurbished for the 2014 season with the Sizzler receiving a speedy refurb. The Sizzler received a (stripped down to the metal) refurb this past winter and should be fully ready by next week.

The Zero was purchased last April from Murray Brothers in Ohio. The ride was in pristine condition and put into use immediately.

Thank you for the compliments. It was nice to meet you.

Stop by anytime.
