It all began in 1973, when Stephen Thebault with Bernard Braun purchased Graefen Amusement and Sheldon Winter Quarters. Dennis Konkey and Willie Wiggins stayed on board after the purchase and have been here ever since. The ride lineup consisted of fourteen rides from the Tilt-A-Whirl, Ferris wheel, to the Trabant. Each ride costs $0.25-$0.50. Ride specials included $1.00 for kiddie rides (for a total of five rides), $0.25 for all rides, and $0.10 for coupon nights.
