Cheers kiwi, Hurricane looks good. Suprised to see the control box for it outside the perimeter fencing, don't think we'd ever see that happen here

Yeah, also judging by the picture of the Scream Machine, i'd say it's the same model / manufacturer of the Music Trip (Bells and Youngs) and Ultimate Party Machine in Australia :)

It is a Notts UK one,the company was started by UK showman Tommy Matthews but was known as Fairmatt which became Eurofab which became Notts UK.You can tell by the handrail design on the front of the machine,I decorated 14 of these rides for Tommy Matthews before moving to Sydney.

Not all of them, I know Bell's isn't. Pretty sure it was built in Mildura by Hesco?
