The first time I rode NoLimit. But that changed after my third attempt and the program went intense.

I am there with Hurricane. Mick Doohan Motocoaster is a let down.

We would be happy to have you up here in QLD Benclare. I have a feeling this will be the only ride DW will be adding this year. Then something big will be added in 2009. The ride line for TOT was travelling really slow and one of the seats were out of action. Ohh by the way, Jase wanted me to mentio...

New Ride - Spongebob Square Pants

Hey everyone. I took a trip out to Dreamworld today and they had a new ride installed ready to go in Nick Central themed around Spongebob Square Pants. The ride will be opening on 20 June 2008 and is a lie down ride similar to Cliff Hanger which travels the show circuit. I doubt it will be too inten...

I have the feeling they will not keep the existing rides. Look at the size of the company, scrapping the old attractions would be peanuts to them. The existing rides take up valuable land on the bottom of a small mountain, which could be utilised for pools at the bottom of slides. I think we can kis...

You are getting in early there Josh. I will be going to the Ekka again this year. Cant break tradition. It is a bit early to say when at this stage, as I may be working there too. If anyone is making the treck up, let us know if you want to go theme parking too. We can make an AAF event of it.

Titled 'Intencity', the brightly painted building will house Bumper Cars and Games. Not sure how this all fits into the usual Movie World themeing....

Well I dont have problems with the rides, none of them make me sick, even when ridden in excess and after alcohol and food. I think its because I am riding something atleast once a month so my body is constantly use to it. Still yet to find someone who can outride me. Young Trav who used to be on th...

Insanity sounds great, however, its has been so cold up here in Brisbane lately, I dont like the sound of travelling 120km/h into freezing temperatues head on.

Just think, come Ekka in August its going to be even colder. Grrr I hate the cold.
