Things are now hotting up in Burntisland with the main games day on Monday. Still a few gaps on the fairground at top end near Superstar and where Spencer Hiscoes equipment was, which has now left to attend Braehead Shopping Centre. No Miami as yet but propably John Wheatley will attend soon with his Limbo Dancer Miami and Tel-Star Big Wheel.
Fair was very busy when I was there, rides were cheap and seemed to be doing well. Weather was great for a change which helped. The surprise this time for me was a Rock'O'Plane in the middle of the ground. 2 Twists, Dodgems, Waltzers and Ghost Trains are all usual for the event. John Wheatleys new Go-Gator kids coaster has made its debut at the fair but I seen it operate just the once in the hour I was there.

Just the 6 remaining rides at the fairground now and the ground looks really empty now. I don't think anymore rides will attend from now until the end of the fair which is 18th August. Ground really waterlogged at the moment due to the heavy rain. Trade didn't seem to be that great, probably the weather is at fault there.
