They should give it to Luna Park Melbourne or Sydney. Or even better push it off a cliff :lol: I know it's a bit extreme but I still think they're dipsticks for buying this well presented lemon instead of fixing Rainbow :roll:

Yes there are 2 Huss Rainbows in Australia :D

Youngs brought one in this year, not sure when it will be on the road but you dont fork out that kind of money to have it sit in a paddock and rot away :wink:

It will be interesting to see it in action again. And if I'm lucky enough to see it I can finally shut up that little twerp inside and be done with it! You know even if I don't like riding it I WILL RESPECT THE HELL OUT OF IT LIKE THE PIRATE!!!

I think the Alibaba might go down to the kids area, there is a huge space for the kids carnival this year. It looks like wave swinger might be on too?? Thought it was up north lakes
Dont be a hater. Chants run a good operation, though agree showmen need to stop importing double ups...

Wave Swinger is on the Ekka, If it didn't get on it would have been at North Lakes

Force 10 I don't hate Chants! I just hate the fact that they wasted their money on such a s***ty ride. Why didn't they get an exciting ride. I mean seriously they could have got a Bertazzon Music Express in the Rock & Roll theme. Enough about my stupid whinging and whining. I hope everything goes well for you lucky Brissy buggers who have a Zipper! Oh and here's a tip if anybody is stupid and crazy enough. When you ride XXXL, do it hands free! Trust me it's safe!

Yes I agree Ali Baba's are a sh** ride to actually go on. But they're one trailer, easy up and down and are reasonable money earners.

Ofcourse it's safe doing XXXL with no hands, how about challenging yourself when you next ride the Zipper by sitting on your hands while it's going :wink:
