Re: 2012 Royal Geelong Show

That'd be the first show that Hard Rock would be operating under new ownership, someone in the Verfuth family has bought it. Think it may be Brad?
Still not a bad lineup for the show

Re: Royal Melbourne Show '12

Electro and dub are good if they're playing decent tunes. If any dubstep is played it's usually the same ol' skrillex remix of cinema which is nearly 2 years old...

Re: Work

More than likely if you've had no experience you could be in a ticket box, or maybe on the deck of a ride. Just walk around whilst set-up is happening and ask around

Thanks again god to see photos of Thunderbolt, Rage and Super Jump pre set-up. First I've seen of the Gold mine Coaster. Pretty sure that's L&L Osborne's

They take good pride in their gear, thanks again. Cheers, never hear much about the ride and would love to see it one day. From what I understand its a bit more complex than the ARM rides in the UK, the base rotates aswell? Guessing it requires more than one trailer? Cheers Kiwi Pretty sure it was b...

Re: 2012 Merriwa Show

Thanks for the photos, never seen that Cha before would be interested to know whose that is. Agree with Steve very rarely a small country town show goes for the 3 days, must be well supported by the town

Re: Wanting to start a carnival

Most operators have carnival spots where they've been going to for decades, especially bigger companies which also draw big crowds every year

Re: Royal Adelaide Show '12

Cheers for the review Scorpion, agreed I always jump Bell's Thunderbolt when I see it, fantastic ride. Bit odd about the Power Surge crew not taking your glasses, prescription ones I'd usually put in the control booth or you could've put them on the speakers at the back of the deck. If anything they...

Re: Wanting to start a carnival

There's a lot more to it then what you would think. Putting plans through to council, getting approval for use, having to pay rent for the land etc. Then you'd need contacts, you need to know showmen and people in the industry. (Showbag operators, food vendors etc) Then getting operators to give up ...

Re: New rides?

Would weigh a shitload with the trailer having 4 axles, quite lengthy too take a look at the photos. No need for one, even if it would be the tallest travelling ride in Australia:

Carnival rides owner robbed, kidnapped and dumped on the M7

GUN-wielding bandits forced a carnival rides owner into a car and later dumped him on the side of a highway during a robbery last night. Three men armed with a gun burst into Amusement Hire Services on Wentworth St, Clyde and tied up the business owner, John Phelan, and two staff as they returned fr...

Great video, was that young's Tilt aswell? Park looks so much better there compared to what it does now. All it is now is just an asphalt heat bowl. Great lineup of rides aswell
