It is a awesome piece of machinery and so smooth to ride. This is the ride someone filmed at the Texas State Fair. This is the only one so far! http://www....

Re: Ekka 2012 - Count Down Begins

Rockstar got on and we all know that was going to happen being brand new but the funny thing is it has been getting slaughtered by Ali Baba's and Midnight Madness when they have been on the same shows. Nothing new really and pretty much the same line up as last year. The showbag tent in sideshow all...

Dreamworld Reunion

Went to the Dreamworld 30 year staff reunion last Saturday night. About 1200 turned up and was a great night. Was good to see so many faces again and reconnect with people I hadn't seen since leaving the park in 2000 to do my own thing. Buzz, TOT, Wipeout, Bumber Bowl (or whatever they call it now d...

Re: North Lakes Fun Fair -Westfield

It was Carnivallands Hurricane at Carnival of Flowers
