Get in quick if you want a new ride from KMG – the Dutch manufacturer has just one free delivery slot for 2014, otherwise production is fully booked through until spring 2015.
The company, renowned for its easy to move and assemble thrill rides, has been busy in recent months with a deliveries to the USA and Australia, as well as a major new attraction for a loyal customer in Switzerland.
In August, Fiesta Shows (USA) took delivery of its new Speed XXL – a propeller ride finished with rich colours both on the main machine and the loading platform/trailer. The American carnival operator Frazier Shows also went with a refreshing colour scheme for its new Freak Out ride delivered in June.
A new Speed ride was about to be shipped at the time of writing to Golden Way Amusements in Australia, its second such attraction from KMG, while in the same country B&B Rides & Games will get a Freak Out with new style lap bars as pictured below.
The Swiss showman HP Maier, who currently travels a KMG XXL and Inversion, took delivery this summer of his 10th attraction from the company. The Super Chaos, or Sicko as it appears in the KMG brochure/website, was officially opened following a blessing ceremony by the Swiss funfair Reverend at the Wetzikon fair on August 16. Its name is inspired by the Chaos (Afterburner/Fireball) ride travelled for many years by Maier, and which he cites as he most successful KMG attraction to date. The XXL and Inversion will soon go to new owners, incidentally.
New deliveries scheduled for the end of this year include one Freak Out each for Alpine Amusements, Butler Family Fun and All Around Amusements in the US. In late 2014 KMG will start production of a new style Discovery for Australia. That one remaining delivery slot is in October of next year.
