The Super Loop? Isn't that in NZ now?

The "Australia's Fastest Ride"?

Or the fact that this latest and greatest ride to WA was actually here many, many years ago and was demolished because some guy died on it?

I thought it came from the east? I'm positive it's not a Show West attraction.

Re: Waltzer

I would never ride the platform on the Tilt that I used to occasionally operate - it was painted steel, so became like ice with even the smallest amount of moisture, and the gaps would grow and shrink from big enough to fit a hand, to small enough to break every bone unfortunate enough to be caught....

Re: New Aeroplane Ride

The ad offered a 1 minute video demo upon request - I requested and was asked for my postal address.

I expected a DVD, what I got was a VHS - I still haven't gone to the trouble of finding someone with a VCR to actually watch it.

This was probably about a year ago.

Sometimes, it's depends if it's worth it over the distance and any restrictions (i.e. you can't road train through suburban areas)

Re: 2010 Perth Royal Show

Weather was good yesterday, but not all that busy while I was there (until about 2ish).

Apparently a cable snapped on the Mega Drop - all I saw was a closed sign in the ticket booth.

Back tonight with some friends.
