Kmg new style Discovery for Australia!

Postby stevenspeed » Mon Mar 30, 2015 3:57 am

A brand new KMG Top spin ride (upgraded Discovery) is coming towards Australia! a few months ago the first images of them appeared at Facebook and in a Dutch megazine.
two pictures coming from the Dutch megazine ''Quest''




And some information about this ride is given in the Parkworld megazine.


Very curious when the ride will arrive in Australia!

kind regards from the Netherlands.

Would love for it to rock up to the Greek Festival in Brisbane next weekend! Any idea who owns it?

Really hope there is some plans for some artwork on the back wall soon as IMO it looks really plain right now. But I am sure Goldenway will be onto that real soon. Looks like a fun ride though, hope it goes well for them!

KMG did do amazing AVENGER artwork for the ride, but DISNEY threatened legal action which is a shame...

can't wait to ride it... more importantly can't wait to ride our very first KMG XXL in 2016...The beast is coming!

That's great news! I've rode the XXL ride a few times and it's a great ride!

What's the next stop for the Avenger?

Ah, that explains a lot about the artwork. So now Goldenway / KMG are having to work out some different artwork for the ride? Honestly if I was the owner of the ride i'd be considering changing the name of the ride so I could have some decent artwork on the ride instead of it looking so plain. It's really a shame considering how good the rest of the ride looks.

Hopefully something is in the works to make it look the best it can be. Can't wait for the XXL. Wonder who brought it?

Depending how it will go on our roads, the ride is ridiculously massive! Obviously it meets the weight restrictions, or its being modified, but the ride does rack on 3 trailers which is manageable (Space Roller, Rainbow are also 3)

I would expect to at least see it at the EKKA for QLD I guess. Wonder how the owners of Freak Out are feeling right now as IMO that ride is an incredibly awesome ride and I much prefer the overall sensation compared to Hard Rock.

Went for a lap of the showgrounds and checked out the new Avenger. Geez the artwork looks pretty good now. Earlier in the week it looked like it had been whitewashed, now the whitewash has gone and it's full of colourful superhero characters. A lot better, well done!

Oh? Does that mean they managed to get around the copyright BS that was happening with it? Glad to hear!

Just saw some images on Instagram and I'm delighted to report that the original KMG artwork for the Avenger is in tact! And looks fantastic. They must have been given clearance to use it now. Obviously was white sheeting over the artwork. Looks incredible. Soo glad that it stayed! Search for #rockyshow on Instagram. You'll see it!
