Thor Equities Seeks Carnival Carnie Types

In a free amusement business website called usedrides.com Thor Equities has placed an ad calling for amusement independents who operate kiddie rides and game operators complete with their rides and concessions for the Coney Island 2009 season. Though the ad seems to have been removed the text was found posted on the Coney Island USA message board.

The ad on usedrides.com reads:


CONEY ISLAND , NEW YORK NOW BOOKING 2009 SEASON Description: NOW BOOKING NEED WHOLE CARNIVAL OR PART OF FOR 2009 SEASON BOOK NOW FOR BEST LOCATIONS NEED INDEPENDANTS WITH SPECTACULARS,MAJORS,KIDDIE RIDES,ALSO NEED GAMES AND GAME OPERATORS ALL TYPES ALSO FOOD TRAILERS SOUVENIRS,STRAIGHT
SALES,ALL NEW AND OLD UNUSUAL ACTS WELCOME MILLIONS IN ATTENDANCE BOOK NOW



Is Thor going to make better in 2009? Are they going to bring in temporary carnival rides that will close before the season ends? Are we in store for more inflatable madness?

Just read this hilarious book by Harmon Leon where he goes out and tries to live the American Dream by walking in many different groups shoes.

In one chapter he went undercover and lived as a carnie in rural Indiana for a month, sleeping in a trailer behind the Tilt-a-Whirl. All the carnies thought he was an undercover cop.

Check it out on Amazon, Really funny and insight for stuff.
