2007 Traralgon Show

I attended Traralgon Show again this year after last year being somewhat of a revelation for me.This was due to the presence of three rides I either had no knowledge of,or had only caught fleeting glimpses of on TV.These were No Limit,Space Roller and Hard Rock,and I had an amazing time watching and...

Ive seen some videos of Star Flyer (not sure if its one of the originals or the Italian ripp-offs),and it looks amazing.I have to admit to some trepidation about riding it though.

Hmmm,looks pretty uncomfortable.But I guess you cant really judge until you've ridden it.

A classic for sure,I was happy to see the Tornado at Sale this year,rode it twice.I think the last time I saw it was around 98.

Geez,I thought Dandenong would attract a better line up.Their website promised "the latest hi-tech rides". Glad I didnt bother with the 3 hour trip.Nice pics though,and the weather looked great.

You're not wrong about the rain,in the past 24 hours we've had around 90mm.Places that were flooded earlier this year are being evacuated again.Thankfully the rain held off until Saturday,so the Friday night carnival was rain and wind free.Line up this year: Mega Drop Scorpion Cliffhanger Music Trip...

Ha Ha,yes Zipperdude,its also on my must ride list.There is also a similar,but smaller version named Evolution,which seems to make regular appearances at most of Americas state fairs.I think it is manufactured by an Italian company (FarFabbri,or something like that).There are differences in the way ...

2007 Sale Show

Went down to the grounds today to see what had turned up so far.Mega Drop is making its third appearance in a row,it must have just arrived as it was still racked up.Music Trip looks complete already,as does Cliff Hanger.The Tornado is back after a three year absence,and Cha Cha is halfway done.Bell...

Awesome pic Zamperla.Check you tube for some cool Imperator videos if you havent already.I remember coming across one of the Six Flags model,renamed Xcalibur.It was apparently the first one produced.The one that features in most of the videos has been sold to China.The fastest growing economy in the...

Huss Booster-the one that operates in a similar vein to a Breakdance,except the gondolas flip upside down.Or a Nauta Bussink Imperator.Only three were made apparently,but one is rumoured to be in storage somewhere.I realize this ride is huge and not easily trasported (perhaps it isnt possible at all...

Sale used to be quite good in the 90's.Thanks to this forum I discovered this was due to Wittingslow.But around '00 things got pretty bad,one year I remember there only being the Hurricane,Cha Cha and Matterhorn.2005 was Ok with Mega Drop and Twin Flip showing up,but last year was rather dismal agai...

Twin Flip accident

Someone may have already answered this,but while going through rides on You Tube I came across one of Twin Flip,and when I scrolled down to read comments I found one relating to an accident where a girl involved described it falling apart!!.Does this mean this ride is now out of action,has anyone se...
