NEWS FROM THE RIDES


Our Front Cover

OUR front cover proudly displays Art
Gardiner's No. 5 BIG ELI Wheel in
operation at Boise Funspot, Boise, Idaho. If a
picture is worth a thousand words, as they
say, then this fully loaded ride, complete with
waiting line, should help answer any questions
our readers may have about the continued
popularity of the BIG ELI Wheel.

Read more about this amusement operation,
and the people behind it, on the Women's Page
of this issue. While Mr. Gardiner does not
himself, qualify for this particular positioning,
those who know Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner are
aware of how very difficult it is to separate one
from the other, even for an article in BIG ELI
NEWS.
