Re: Pickett's New Ride

I rode one at Creamfields in the UK last year. Longest ride cycle I have ever been on... one of the best rides ever. Definitely a good move and quite a easy setup/pull down.

Do you know if its a 4 or 5 arm model?

Re: Turbo's

the ones you are looking for are VSV turbo lights. We have a cup and saucer and use them. Try getting LED lights instead of the regular bulbs as they dont burn out - but come at a price

check out http://www.nationalsupplyonline.com/VSV_Cabochon.html which has some pretty good info.

Re: Perth Royal Show 2009

It's good to see new rides coming to Perth however the MIXER was not operating at all today... For a brand new ride, this is very disappointing. Also none of the SPEED lights were working on the rotating arm and you couldn't even see it spin from a distance tonight cause it was obviously dark. Crowd...
