Hey Fellas, I noticed in "Routes" on the Home Page the Davis Enterprises in playing the California Mid-State Fair.

Has anyone seen it? I thought he had legal issues and did not think he was still operating.

I went by his winter quarters last October and he was working on a few pieces.

He does have a phenomenal amount of equipment in his WQ. At least four Zippers, a few divers and a butt-load of other stuff. You can see most of it using Google Earth.

Yeah I googled that and you're right, a lot of great old rides sitting there, saw a Sky Wheel, and at least one of the divers, music rides and such.

If he doesn't use them and decides to have a yard sale one day that will be something.

one diver is set up, three more center-loads on the lot, yellow, pink and white sweeps.

two Toboggans

Three Skywheels (two yellow, one white)

Spider

A few octopuses'

Two Gravatrons

A lot of paratroopers

A Tempest (I think)

A few Rok-o-planes

At least two coasters

Two or three Zippers

Dark rides, joints, fun-houses, ticket-boxes and a bunch of other stuff I don't recognize.

Little bit off topic but what happened to all of B&B Amusements equipment when they went under? Anyone have a few details?

Helm & Sons is playing the CA Mid State Fair. The listing for Davis Enterprises is incorrect. Matt needs to update the route list.

The Google earth aerial view of the Davis lot is very outdated. It was taken at least 12 years ago. Does anyone know how to get Google to update the aerial shot?

Helm is is his brother-in-law, yes?

Is is possible Tommy still has the contract and Helm is playing it?

I drove by the WQ in October and it looked like they were busy and still had a bunch of stuff,
