Hey Paulie. The roller coaster is called the 'Orphan Rocker'. It was an inhouse built coaster, which I believe, has never opened to the public for operation - something to do with safety. However, it is rumoured that people have had the chance of riding it before.
I have photos and information on the coaster which I am using on the other half of the AAF site, once I get around to finishing it (yeah yeah I know it has been ages since that side of the site has been up and running).
In discussions I have had with Scenic World in the past, they mention that they are undertaking works on the coaster and getting it ready for operation, but they have been saying that for over 8 years now.

Yeah, From what i've been told Phillip Hammond (The designer, builder and owner of Scenic World) and his very close freinds and family are the only ones to have rode the Orphan Rocker before. To be honest I very much doubt if we will ever see it in regular operation.

Yeh, it would be great but I couldn't see it operating to the public. But you'd get great views and thrills from overhanging the blue mountains
