Canberra Royal is on next weekend. Anyone know what will heading there? Assume bells will have all their gear in attendance.
I'll be on grounds Saturday, so expect a few photos and a review!

Well I hit up the Canberra Royal show for the first time ever. I have to say I was impressed! It had all the charming features of a regional show, but it was a decent size! The sideshow layout was a bit muddled, rides were placed sideways, and small joints scattered throughout. I did enjoy the multiple food joints. Would have been 10+ at least! Made for a good selection of showtime treats!
Bells equipment featured heavily, all looking in traditionally good condition. No Limit had a new ticket/control box not sure how long they've had it, as last time I saw it was 2yrs ago at RES.

Ride List
Zipper (Shorts)
Music Trip (Bells& Youngs)
Cha cha (Bells)
Crazy Raft
Simulator
Gravitron
Shock wave
No Limit
Thunderbolt
Break dance
XXL
Dark ride
Bumper Cars (Bells & unknown - electric speedway??)
Speed
Ferris Wheel (Dean Davis)
Hurricane (Bells)

No Limit is my favourite ride, of all time, hands down - nothing else comes close! Bells Hurricane is a nice machine. March's is my favourite but this one comes close. It has been a while since I'd taken a music trip, not a very pleasant experience, the tight circles takes its toll on the shoulders. Great rider interaction an a long cycle on Bells'. Thunderbolt was a great experience I'm sure this is faster than chants rok & rol.

Rode on a few other favourites but Bell's equipment impressed me the most. It's ashame they don't do more shows across the east coast of QLD!

Cheers for the review, definately like Canberra with the fact Bell's have a heap of their gear there. Especially Thunderbolt and their Hurricane, how was Bell's new track going? Saw a few photos and it looks great

It was going good. Actually all the rides were filling up quick, and there wasn't any massive lines. I think the new track looks exactly like shorts though.
