IGA Perth Royal Show 2008

Postby Top Gunner14 » Sun Aug 03, 2008 3:28 pm

NEW RIDES
For adrenaline junkies, this year you'll find a bunch of new rides in Side Show Alley. Hair-raising and seat-twisting, they'll have you coming back for more.

We will be telling you more about our new rides soon. There are FOUR of them and they will make you scared. Very scared.

Prepare yourself for Skywalker

Haunted Hotel

Flashdance

Energy Storm

Rides back for another year:
3D Maze
Claw
Chaos
Crazy Dance
Dodgems
Gee Wizz
Ghost Train
Mega Drop
Nitro
Orbitor
Python Loop
Ranger
Simulator
Slide
Supa Nova
Twin Flip
Wave Swinger

Well, some great new rides for those westies. Very suprising, Flashdance making the trip over, Energy Storm back on at the royals, Skywalker, no suprise and no suprise haunted Hotel is going. But no Power Surge probably, Joyland's did say it's to far to get to the show. Hopefully a great show.

Cheers

I personally wouldn't blame Joylands for deciding not to take the Surge to Perth, especially with the price of fuel right now. I would think this would be Sam Evan's first capital show with the Energy Storm in a while... I would like to see that ride back at EKKA cause it's a good ride.

It's certainly looking much better. Yeh, fuel is very hectic. I don't think I'd be travelling over either. So did Davis first bring it into the country than Sam bought it?

I never thought Davis owned Energy Storm, and that Sam owned it from day one. Aussie Ride Broker made a post about it where it was sort of a riddle... along the lines of "A storm is coming" and he made people guess what the ride was. It seems Matt has deleted a heap of old posts and I think that might have been one of them.

Well it does look like PS will be in Melbourne. I'm sure Oz will be there. If hes not, just give it to Rus, I'm sure he'd be thankful

Sam Evans has always been the owner of the Energy Storm.

I too hope to see it back at more Capitals - it is a sleek ride.

python loop

Postby mmk » Wed Aug 27, 2008 7:58 pm

Went past the showgrounds today and they have started construction of the Python Loop rollercoaster. Thought it may be of interest so I took a couple pictures. :)

The slide, splash down, and ghost trains in the background are all permanent structures at the showgrounds as well.

Cheers

If Davis Amusement's have never owned energy storm, why was it pictured in their page in the 2007 showman's guild calendar? are they some how interconnected?

Had to go to the showgrounds today to pick up some passes. Couldn't believe how much they did in one day on the rollercoaster.



These are the 4 containers which store the ride. The containers are left on the showgrounds for the remainder of the year.

wow, that is very cool. excellent pics. it seems such ashame to leave it sitting in those very convenient shipping containers all year! they could just pick those up and pop them on a train to come do RES, Ekka. I think it would be a great idea!

whats with perth and all their permanent rides!? i think i will have to come visit soon
