Yes, I did manage to get to the I-X Center and visit the "Worlds Largest Indoor
Amu***t Park".  As promised, here's a thumbnail (I'll be brief, since it's
only open through Sunday 5/9/93).

1.  General impressions:
The Bates Bros. Carnival is one of the classier-looking operations I've seen.  
Most of the paint is fresh, all of the TurboLites actually work, and the like.
One problem:  Because the entire setup is indoors, it's really *NOISY*...I
mean, nearly DEAFENING.  Other than that, it's kind of neat!

2.  The Spectaculars:
Chance Falling Star, Sea Dragon, SuperLoop, Zyklon coaster, flume ride.
Top Spin:  Can't comment on this, since it was not working.  Typical of a
European ride to be broke down! (jmvho!)
Sky Coaster (extra $$):  Related to bungee jumping.  Rider is fastened into a
hang-gliding rig (looks like a big apron with a trapeeze bar attached), puts
his feet on the trapeeze, and clips to a pair of steel cables (in this case,
suspended fromthe roof).  He's connected to a line that hoists him to the
ceiling.  Then, he pulls a cord and swings like a pendulum, coming within about
six feet of the floor.  Gulp!

3.  Other stuff:
The usual assortment of carnival Spin-and-Barf stuff.

Need I say more?
