Wow looks great Kiwi! Very well presented, will look good at night. The main logo looks good too. You guys would be getting those bottom panels painted I presume?

Very clean looking unit. Very similar to freestyle's overall design with the arrows. I will say i'm personally not a fan of the colors, it seems a bit too dark for my personal liking. It's still eye catching though, and that's all that matters in the end. IMO it looks very similar to the KMG Tango, Equinox.

My sentiments exactly Old Showie.NZ has some brilliant looking classics...but a modern spectacular like this is sure to set some heads spinning.Cheers for the pics Kiwi.

Would love to see it here in Samoa although I know this isn't likely. We do have a traveling circus and I have been told carnival rides have operated here in the past.

A short video of the Turbo Boost at its first event in New Zealand.
Stuck between some building so not the best, I will try and get a clearer video at the Easter Show.

Have to say it looked great after dark

Cheers

Great video and thanks for it! It actually sounded like Turbo Boost was operating inside the building rather than next to it. The ride is also noisier than Free Style and Speed but does sound like fun.

Yes it is noticeably louder than the KMG Speed or Freestyle here in Aus (almost silent operation) - maybe KMG have re-designed or replaced the motor / bearings used?
