Unfortunately I won't be going but will look forward to review and photos.

hopefully you'll get to ride Extreme Force (AKA Force Ten) which I understand is based at the showground.

Looking forward to see some photos. Always draws a big lineup at Maitland, pretty sure we've got the Power Surge up there.
And Ben I think Extreme Force has been sold and is no longer kept at the showgrounds

Went to the show saturday. Its been 4 or 5 years since ive been and I was rather dissapointed. Reminded me of it back before they revamped it into the hunteriver supershow. Back then it was double the size as to what it is now. Still a few good rides turned up thou.
No mega drop, no haunted hotel, no crazy cars. Lot of regulars missing which was a bit of a dissapointment to me. Was surprised to see
dean davis wheel there. Does he normally do nsw? Shorts had there new dodgem track there plus there smaller track. Looked alright but i still prefer crazy cars. Anyway the ride list is
Hardrock of course
Shorts new and old track
Was a 3rd track there not sure whos
Lauries breakdance
powersurge plus there funslide
DDS wheel
XXXL
Speed
Pinks whizzer
Badass zipper
Sea circus
Sky walker
Darkride
Youngs tilt a whirl
twister gravitron
Music trip
Haunted House
Thats bout all the majors. Heaps of kids rides.
Wasnt to bad of a show I guess. Wasnt much of a crowd but I was there at lunchtime. Hopefully it picked up more as the
afternoon went on. Will put some photos up when I get a chance.

Yeh like you said it has always drawn a good line-up of gear. Thanks for the heads up and looking forward to the photos. Yeh bit odd with no Osborne gear, guessing they went straight down to Canberra. Yeh Dean Davis has always done NSW, don't think he ever used to take the Zipper there though.

Actually drove past Young's Tilt this arvo on the way back to their farm, good to see they're getting it back on the road alot more now
