Will be interesting to see what arrives, and how much each ride is, not much info on the Show's page. Heard Ex Cookie Bear factory now a nice looking Ghost Train, and presume the Hurricane is coming up from the South.

You think a new owner now has Hollywood of horrors? I note that Sydney has a new version.

Drove past last night Ferris Wheel looks bright, but not next to a main road. Slide had been started on, but not much had changed since last week.

Wow, massive mistake by the Auckland show organisers. Hopefully they'll sort out any differences they have with mahons!

Dont realy matter who it is ,they just need to take afew rides ,then thes the money change over NZ --- Aussie $$$$ mmnn ,then youve got 1000s of people not going to return to the Easter Show , damage has been done , then all you need is Mahons to have another Downtown event with ,say Roller coaster afew other rides that didnt go out this yr & a fireworks display , its bye bye easter show , free entry downtown ,$25 per head easter show , is the Aus operator going to run at NZ prices be interesting , i hope thes another DOWNTOWN Bigger & Better ,
