SIZZLER / CHA CHA

Postby Tilt01 » Fri Jan 15, 2010 4:03 pm

How many of these rides are there in Australia ? Every operator seems to have one, some have two. There are probably now atleast 30 units. Some are Australian built, some are from the US and there is Goldenway's UK model.

The latest import being a Sizzler from the US brought in by Pavier Amusements from the NSW Central Coast.

Yes George Pink does have the Whizzer, don't know it's actual name. Aussie Amusement's owner is George Kret. And Better Amusement's (Joyland's) Cha Cha isn't Marinovitch, it's Melonas

I wasn't going to include park models as these are quite often portables on lease-hire etc. I had forgotten about this one. I will include it, since I don't think there are any other park units in Australia.

I recall previous examples of park units, all Sizzlers, were found in Leisureland Fair (circa 1987, VIC), Alpine Toboggan Park (VIC), Ulladulla Arcade (NSW), Down Underland (ACT), but all of these have since been removed and most likely trailerised.

37 units in Australia, and counting:

___ Sizzler (ex-Goldenway, UK Sonocase, SA owner TBA)
___ Scrambler (Ex-Down Underland, now travelling, owner TBA)
___ Sizzler (Ex-Trindall, owner TBA)

I think I remember seeing the Funland Ulladulla Sizzler racked on a trailer some years ago just after the redevelopment started. Was a fast unit that one, oh great memories there :) The new redevelopment of Funland which opened up a few years ago now is sh**, only good thing there now is the Laser Skirmish maze
