Where is No Limit?

Re: TURBO RIDE.

So they are going to butcher a classic ride, adding open seating due to safely reasons? AGGGGHHHH!! Makes me mad :x The original CHANCE TURBO is a part of RIDE HISTORY and should be keep and restored as original, not changed. Keep her as she was, maybe add a simple sign like 'NOTE TO ALL TURBO RIDER...

Re: Question about the Zipper

That's a good question ! Well I know the MINIMUM height, but MAXIMUM? who knows? A quick google search did not find anything. If anyone else here can't answer I would say just go for it and if you are worried ask the operator before you get your ticket, heck you may even score a free ride (if you ar...

Re: Rye Summer Carnival

I hope not, I was asking the question here after reading the Facebook page for Wittingslows Amusements, the recent post on there seems to indicate some new rides this year and old favorites, so I was keen to know what they are. Then again, I would not be surprised if by "new" it was just H...

2014 Geelong / Shepparton Shows

Anyone know what's heading out to Shep next weekend or Geelong the next week? I'm keen on some more Zipper rides since it left the RMS mid show. Shame it had to go. I hope there will be a Zipper in full flight either Geelong or Shepparton this year. Geelong Show website has some rides listed but it'...

Re: Royal Melbourne Show, 2014 Zipper!

So lets understand, ONE rider who rode at their own risk, on clearly a very intense ride complained they were hurt? How many other riders were there that were not at all injured in comparison to that one rider? Did WorkCover even consider this? Let me set this straight, the Zipper is a very safe rid...

Re: Royal Melbourne Show, 2014 Zipper!

I just can't believe this. I knew it was all too good to be true. Zipper is the best ride full stop. Guess I was lucky to ride it when it WAS there. I cant see any reason for it to leave half way through the show like that. Seems very odd to me and I and others would like to know why Zipper is gone ...

Re: Royal Melbourne Show, 2014 Zipper!

I've not ventured back since last week but I'm hoping it's still there as I was planning one final visit since you never know when it will be at the RMS again. I'm keen to know if it's there too. Seems odd it would be taken off ground. I'll go back if it's there still. Fingers crossed. Please post h...

^ True, there was footage on the news of one rider yawning the whole time and another rider said he was more concerned for the guys up there doing the work to get the train moving. I think it is very wrong the news can get away with running stories like this, it made it out to be a safety concern an...

Re: Royal Melbourne Show, 2014 Zipper!

Just returned back from this years RMS. Zipper was just incredible, as expected. They had an unlimited ride offer / deal on the Zipper for $20. I thought about it but I didn't go for this option, age has a lot to answer for! I rode it just once....it deserves a perfect 10/10. It was running really w...

Re: 8 Y.O. dies on AIRMAXX 360.

I had a ride on it at the RMS last year, it was better than I thought it would be. The bouncing was fairly strong actually and it did lift me up from my seat from memory. I hate to think what must have happened for that little girl to have been flung out.

Re: Royal Melbourne Show, 2014 Zipper!

Great news! should be lots of fun, although I'm not sure if I'm keen on much else going. I would never have guessed Zipper would return, next up TURBO then HURRICANE PIRATE ENTERPRISE and RAINBOW, can't wait!

Carnival at Westfield Plenty Valley

There are a bunch of rides set up in the car park area I'm seeing Zipper Octopus Cha Cha. Not sure if it starts this weekend due to school holidays ? I'll get down to test out the Zipper at least, it's been a long time since I last rode one so should be good.

Re: Theme Park Studio

I've also been keeping an eye on this one as well.. I'd love to see a Chance Zipper and many other classics too.... good to see the Turbo, but too me it's not that accurate really (it's close but, the cages appear oversized) Anyway, it's good that this is finally out and I for one do look forward to...

Re: Moomba 2014

Don't get too excited there mixer. It's probably just No Limit, it's nothing more than some art on a map. Guess we have to just wait until March, I doubt I will bother going this year unless someone can confirm more.

Re: Zipper

I just thought that the ex DAVIS or JD Amusements Zipper needs to be at RYE over the summer. BOTH would be my choice, I don't care though as ANY ZIPPER is a good enough. Hope that this happens as RYE is just a shadow of itself in recent years. I'd love to see a revival of a classic ride like the ZIP...

Re: Zipper

Yes this looks like a nice ride although I'm wondering the same with the electric drive being noticeably slower. Any idea where it may show next? I'd give it a review if I can try it out!

Re: Geelong Show 1994

Agree Princess :) LOVED the interaction, and I was the same Matt I could sit and watch hours more! I think I could see Enterprise there somewhere behind Zipper. WOW, now those are two great rides I really do miss seeing!
