Re: Theme Park Studio

I backed this during the Kickstarter campaign,it does look very good.Other flat rides that had short preview videos early on were a Huss Troika and a Mondial Topscan.Looks as though they're hoping to implement things like money management and goals/mini games,much like RCT.

Re: Zipper

Without doubt the best looking Zipper in Oz,but electrically driven usually means slower,hope this isn't the case with this model.

Re: Zipper

Going by the pics I saw,it wasn't at Ballarat...but I don't think a Zipper has been there for years anyway.Best bet is probably Dandenong.

Last time I saw Force 10 & Orbitor was probably the same years those photos were taken.

Re: Zipper

The Ex Davis Zipper!!!,it's good to see it travelling again,who owns it now?...and anyone know whose Ali that is?,it was at Sale over the weekend.If that Zipper is under new ownership it's hard to say where it will show up next.

Onride/Offride Footage of Radar (Raven)

Half an hour of footage of some classics at an American fair,which as the topic title indicates includes a Radar.I'd say this would be from the mid to late 80's?

Re: Geelong Show 1994

What an awesome find,I just wanted it to keep going and show more rides and full cycles!,I bet there were more classics there that were not shown.How good would our midways look if these were still travelling along with some of the modern classics we have here today.

Re: Cootamundra Show 2013 Pics.

Didn't you say a Hurricane showed up before set up began...and it obviously bailed again?.That Zipper is definitely rough looking,saw it last year at Traralgon,it does operate pretty fast though.Can't wait for JD's to get their Zipper on the road regularly to show everyone how good a Zipper can look.

Re: Any ride you want

Ah yes...the new Chance ride,read about it a few weeks ago,not all that impressive...an original Trabant at full flight would be more of a thrill. This looks interesting,manufactured by Perrin Stevens in the UK. https://m.facebook.com/303835763668/timeline/story?ut=3&hash=-7578479391829875199&am...

Yikes!!...that gondola doesn't look stable at all,how long till it gives way and ends up looking like that Rainbow and Ali Baba after their accidents?.

Re: New KMG Speed for Goldenway Amusements

Why not shop around for something new & original?,we already have two of these,or are they selling their original and replacing it with a new model?.

Wittingslow's Ranger at Melbourne Show

I thought I'd lost this picture....but as usual,it turned up when I was looking for something else.This was the first time I went to the Melbourne show...cant be sure on the year...89/90 maybe?.Rode most of the Huss classics-Pirate,Breakdance,UFO...dont remember seeing Rainbow,though I'm sure it was...
