Also, yes, I feel a degree of shame for knowing this. But then I can share that info to you and you can make informed decisions or something. It works.

I could be wrong, but the track layout seems different. Look at the last little bunny hop before the turn into the station.

The top picture has everything from the top of the bunny hop on obscured, but shows how the track curves leading up to it. The bottom picture shows it from a straight on angle, and you can see how the layout has a little kink there.

Wade Shows is one of the premier shows in the country. I believe most of your captions were either lies or strong exaggerations. I hate how many theme park enthusiasts feel that traveling carnivals are so inferior to parks. They are completely seperate concepts. You should have given your wristbands to somebody who would have enjoyed them instead of going yourself and nit picking.
I'm a "High Roller" at the "Excalibur". That's why they let me do the "Wild Thing" like a "Renegade". It beats using a "Corkscrew" to "Steel Venom" from a "Mad Mouse"

Nitpicking?

Unless you were there and seen what we did, please don't assume that we are making things up.

That fair looks better than most of the ones they do around my neck of the woods. I used to love the SC state fair though.

It was better than "some" of the fairs I have been to, but still bad.

Its disappointing to hear that you had a bad experience at a Wade Shows fair, they're usually top notch and well maintained.

I fail to see what's so "ghetto", looked like a fairly decent carnival. And fyi that guy with the cornrows looks nothing like Snoop Dogg, maybe favors Xzibit a bit however.

A few of the rides were nice. I believe I even pointed that out. The fair was very ghetto. Most of (not all) the rides were in bad shape, and had issues. A few of the rides looked like they should not even be used because of the shape they were in. A few of the rides were still in pieces or not even working.

Half the employees could not even speak English, and one even had a full face tattoo running a kiddie ride. The clientele was questionable as well. One guy was holding a baby while smoking and the smoke was clearly bothering the baby.

I have been to worse carnivals, and while this carnival was better than some, it was still not the greatest.
