Re: New spin on slide

Looks superb - with all that dazzling light you could have punters tripping on the stairs!

are the LED's under the slide surface or just rope lights on the edges?

Good work Dazzleland nice shots. As for the visibility vest - any Bunnings or workwear store (cheap one shouldn't cost you more than $10)

Re: One killed, 8 injured on Hurricane in Brazil

Ben I never knew about that one. Maybe this is why they were all upgraded to have 2 idiot-proof locks on the bar. Of all the rides to stand up on, Hurricane would have to be the worst desicion. lol

Re: Aussie World visit

Great photo report - that park is consistently top notch - ride presentation, pathways, all very well maintained.

The redback track looks very high is the travelling Disk-O we have in Aus the same height?

Ali Baba's are an easy set up, and seem to be good earners where ever they go. It will just mean more country shows get to experience it.

Re: RES Giant Slide has a new home

it's a good purchase for Aussieworld. that ground is already sloping too which would help. I also see in that aerial photo all the pieces of the new flume ride they will be installing. Great to see Aussieworld is really expanding. Top park (and not so little anymore)

Re: What's happening in surfers

Sad for those who've invested. My opinion is that most of its target-market would have had a similar if not higher view from their high-rise hotel room window - the view would be a major factor in enticing riders. Surfers Paradise is really suffering at the moment with the high $AU decreasing overse...
