At Gilroy Gardens in Gilroy, Calif., the gardens that make up a large part of this lush theme park are also the park’s historic heart. They are the reason that the park was founded, and a unique aspect of it – the landscaping is to a large extent just as important to the attraction as the rides, fun foods, and special events. Once known as Bonfante Gardens Theme Park, the park was founded by former Nob Hill Foods supermarket owners Michael and Claudia Bonfante, and it was designed to educate guests about and create a greater ......[read more]

In 1996, Dutch ride manufacturer, KMG, debuted the Move It-32 in Best, Netherlands. At the time, this was the first ride of its type in the world with its unique design, ride motion, and engineering. The ride was very popular among showmen in Europe due to its high impact design, ease to set up and teardown, and its high capacity ride cycles at 32 persons per cycle (over 1000 riders per hour). Later, Tivoli began producing a smaller, yet similar version of the ride, the Spin Out.

This week, KMG announced a new concept for the Move It-32, based on the same action as the first model, but with state of the art engineering and design techniques.

KMG says, "The new Move It-32 is lighter in weight, easier to set up and uses less power so the new version will be much more efficient. Modern drive units, electric motors, safety systems and new construction all meet the latest safety rules of EN13814 and TüV guidelines. Hydraulic systems will be replaced for electric systems as much as possible and this Move It-32 will be environmental friendly."

The Move It-32 travels on 3 (road legal) semi-trailers and can be set up in 6 hours with three people without the use of a crane.

The ride will be complete with full background scenery, an operator booth, sound system, RGB LED lighting, stainless steel fencing, TüV approval, and more.

KMG and NewRidesEurope.com are now taking orders for the new attraction with the next delivery available in 2020.

WASHINGTON — On Friday, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen announced that an additional 15,000 H-2B temporary nonagricultural worker visas will be available for Fiscal Year 2018. In this determination, Secretary Nielsen determined there are not sufficient, qualified, U.S. workers available to perform temporary non-agriculture labor to satisfy the needs of American businesses in FY18. This allocation is in addition to the 66,000 visas already issued this year. Secretary Nielsen made this decision after consulting with Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta, members of Congress, and business owners.

“The limitations on H-2B visas were originally meant to protect American workers, but when we enter a situation where the program unintentionally harms American businesses it needs to be reformed,” said Secretary Nielsen.“I call on Congress to pass much needed reforms of the program and to expressly set the number of H-2B visas in statute. We are once again in a situation where Congress has passed the buck and turned a decision over to DHS that would be better situated with Congress, who knows the needs of the program. As Secretary, I remain committed to protecting U.S. workers and strengthening the integrity of our lawful immigration system and look forward to working with Congress to do so.”

The H-2B temporary nonagricultural worker program was designed to serve U.S. businesses unable to find a sufficient number of qualified U.S. workers to perform nonagricultural work of a temporary nature. Congress set the annual H-2B visa cap at 66,000. A maximum of 33,000 H-2B visas are available during the first half of the fiscal year, and the remainder, including any unused H-2B visas from the first half of that fiscal year, is available starting April 1 through September 30.

On February 27, 2018, USCIS determined that it had received sufficient H-2B petitions to meet the full FY 2018 statutory cap of 66,000.

In the FY 2018 Omnibus, Congress delegated its authority to the Secretary to increase the number of temporary nonagricultural worker visas available to U.S. employers through September 30, just as it did in the FY 2017 Omnibus. In the intervening time since enactment of the FY 2018 Omnibus, the Secretary consulted with the Secretary of Labor on the issue, in accordance with Congressional requirements, and developed this rule.

Starting this week, eligible petitioners for H-2B visas can file Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker. Eligible petitioners must submit a supplemental attestation on Form ETA 9142-B-CAA-2 with their petition.

Details on eligibility and filing requirements will be available in the final temporary rule and on the Increase in H-2B Nonimmigrant Visas for FY 2018 webpage to be published on uscis.gov when the final temporary rule is posted for public inspection.
