Perth Royal Show 2009

Postby CoinKing » Mon Aug 17, 2009 5:39 pm

copy pasta off the official site.


Sideshow Alley (B3) throws up the thrills and chills of wild rides for all ages and keeps the action at the Show fuelled into the night. This year:

* For the first time ever in Australia we introduce Mixer
* Making a Perth Royal Show debut are Cyber Party and Extreme Speed
* The return of a classic – the Hurricane
* Blood-pumping favourites like Skywalker, Nitro, Haunted Hotel, Megadrop and Super Jump


Mixer looks like a power surge and ranger that had a stillbirth.

Thanks fot that coinking. So this is Mixer's first show, wonder how this one will go, IMO doesn't look really exciting.

Good to hear Cyber Party is going over and same with Extreme Speed. So with Cyber Party going, does this mean that Crazy Dance has been given the boot or is this still going?

Ahh it did finally sell. Who purchased the ride or does that have to be kept under wraps? Yeh I've watched a few videos and it doesn't look spectacular. But I've heard their good rides. I can't see how

Are you sure the Mixer is that one in the clip? If so, this was a dog of a ride when Zamperla released it, plagued with technical problems, and generally an un-exciting ride experience. If it is this make, it was probably purchased at a fire-sale price, as far as I know, they only manufactured 3 units world-wide.

Because it is "a new ride to Australia" (enough to get something on an all-important capital show run for at least 1 season)

BORING???!! How can you guys call this ride boring? You must be used to riding more extreme rides in the capital cities and over in W.A. We only get lame crap rides over here in regional Qld like: Space Roller, Sky Walker, Hard Rock, Energy Storm, Extreme Speed and Zipper etc. Maybe I should pack up and move to a capital city or W.A. so I can ride more extreme rides. Bring the Mixer over to the East coast of Australia and give us country folk a chance to ride it. I'm sure we can handle it, heck, I can go 6 straight rides on the Tea-cups without spilling a single drop of my drink! I first saw this ride on YouTube a cuppla years ago and nearly bought a ticket straight away to Germany where the Mixer was filmed just to give it a shot. I'd rather call a ride boring after I actually ride it first. Tell us all exactly how 'boring' the Mixer really was after you ride it in your review. I wait in anticipation............Deefa.

Don't worry dude, it wouldn't have been the only ride I would have gone on, but anything that throws me upside down while going in a circular motion gets my juices going. Luckily I have an iron clad stomach. Besides, those German showmen know how to keep their rides looking spectacular. I also would love to give their Autobahn a 'ride' too,heck, if your cars' speedo goes up to 260km/h you might as well do it LEGALLY! Wouldn't mind jumping over to the U.K. to check out the Nottingham Goose Fair while I'm over there as well.(Could also finally meet the other half of my relations while in the U.K.)

Yeh that's what I'd love to do one day, the Autobahn. Dunno where I'd get a Ferrari or Lamborghini from to drive on there lol.

Yeh the European showmen go nuts with their rides. Shows they have the money to spend with the amount of paying riders they get over there

Its a Zamperla Mixer, I rode it the other day I thought it was a pretty good ride. It looks very nice, Im not going to give anything away but it looks good. I find it interesting that everyone bags a showmen when they go to all the effort to buy a ride, bring it to Australia and work it. Everyone complains when we import rides that are already over here and when somebody buys something differant all people can do is call it junk, I reakon you should all put your money up, buy a ride, bring it to OZ and see how good you go.

Cheers OZshowkid
come one, come all, come in its time for a showtime spin
