Oh? Does that mean they managed to get around the copyright BS that was happening with it? Glad to hear!

Re: Bundaberg Show 2015

I think you should post the photos, little shows often have quite the charm :) It also looks strange seeing Space Roller without the backdrop too. I'll also state that i'm not a big fan of the new lights on XXXL honestly, I preferred the color scheme it used to have as IMO it made it look classier w...

Re: Kmg new style Discovery for Australia!

I would expect to at least see it at the EKKA for QLD I guess. Wonder how the owners of Freak Out are feeling right now as IMO that ride is an incredibly awesome ride and I much prefer the overall sensation compared to Hard Rock.

Re: Kmg new style Discovery for Australia!

Ah, that explains a lot about the artwork. So now Goldenway / KMG are having to work out some different artwork for the ride? Honestly if I was the owner of the ride i'd be considering changing the name of the ride so I could have some decent artwork on the ride instead of it looking so plain. It's ...

Re: Kmg new style Discovery for Australia!

Really hope there is some plans for some artwork on the back wall soon as IMO it looks really plain right now. But I am sure Goldenway will be onto that real soon. Looks like a fun ride though, hope it goes well for them!

Re: Toowoomba Royal Show 2015

Energy storm is looking heaps better than it has in previous years! So glad to see they got rid of the tacky metallic paint job it had. The whole ride is looking nice and clean now. Also great to see that Trindall's have been looking after their gear even better than before too, Super Trooper is loo...

Sea Viper (Corkscrew) Officially closed

So, as many people may or may not have been aware. Sea World's Sea Viper / Corkscrew RollerCoaster has been decommissioned after 32 years of operation. Early in 2012 they found hundreds of hairline fractures in the track, and was closed for several months for repairs. Earlier this year the attractio...

Re: Yeppoon Show 2014

Honestly, I like the lighting on the Ali Baba a lot. However I think having the white backing on it looks ugly during the day. I think it would look MUCH better if it was painted yellow or something to actually blend in with the ride. Hopefully it's still a work in progress.

Re: Fraser Coast Show 2014 (Maryborough)

Nice pics, I never even knew March's owned a 2nd Whizzer. Appears to be an Eli Bridge model too from America instead of an Australian built model. Can tell by the car design more than anything.

Re: Moomba 2014

Was there a big difference in the overall ride sensation between the Capriolo and Furioso? I will admit looking at videos the bigger variant does look slightly smoother than the smaller one.

I've read the Facebook comments, and honestly I wouldn't count on artwork being 100% accurate. As much as i'd love it to be true, I will believe it when I see it.

Re: Moomba 2014

If you don't mind me asking, do you have any solid proof on the capriolo arriving? I've had a look on the moomba site and can't seem to find anything to suggest that the ride we are getting isn't No Limit. The map on the site is meant to be reasonably accurate but it's entirely possible that they ha...
