Cleveland Strawberry Festival

Post by Aussie Ride Broker » Wed Sep 06, 2006 4:19 pm

Is on this week-end the 9th & 10th September at the Cleveland Showgrounds

The ride line looks like this:

ZIPPER - Australia's Meanest Zipper

HURRICANE

DODGEM CARS

CYBER PARTY

A variety of other family & kiddies rides, games and displays from the local area.

I'll be there each day of the festival.

I have never seen or ridden Cyber Party. What is the experience like?

Might see if I can get out there. Where are the Cleveland Showgrounds?

Cyber Party is faster than the Breakdance ride with a lifting action, and a lot more spinning in the cars.

Location of the grounds are the Corner of Long & Smith streets Cleveland Mattie.

I think it makes my top 5 rides.
  • 1. No Limit
    2. Space Roller
    3. Cyber Party
    4. Thunderbolt
    5. Zipper
So there you have it, Australia's best rides as Reviewed my the HURRICANE!

Good choice of rides for your top 5. I haven't ridden the Syber Party before but would very much like to. I don't think it has come down to NSW yet. I was hoping it would do some major capital shows but it doesn't sound like it will any time soon.

By the way, what's happening with the Insanity?

Well, the Trindalls only do Northern New South Wales and Queensland, so that is why. As far as Insainity is concerned, I dont know whats going on with that right now.

Princess, umm, thanks for your clarrification. I would never have found the place if you didnt point that out. LOL.

Thanks for the info guys. Would be good to give Cyber Party a go. Get some onride footage. I got some pretty decent footage of Space Roller and Hard Rock at Ekka. They ride ops all loved the mini camera strapped to my arm. Need to find a way to strap the camera to the outside of a Zipper cage.

So... Matt, did you end up going and Riding Cyber Party? Well, my curse struck that ride... AGAIN this weekend, TWICE within 3 hours... Our set of arms were starting to stop spinning, and we were booted off the ride till it was fixed, then the ride started, and 3 hours later, the power temporarily cut out...

Then I changed target to the Elusive FORCE 10... Well, i'm sure you guys can figure that one out... :lol:

Zipper is running smoother than ever, and NO princess... I didn't loose it... this time.

Wittingslow's old Zipper is now owned by Dean Davis who premiered the unit at the recent Gold Coast Show.

Thanks for posting those photo's Oz, and your review Hurricane.

I found those photo's very interesting, given most of that equipment rarely makes it down to VIC. The last time I'd seen Force 10 was around 1993. Irronic that they had two Hurricanes there, when EKKA did not have one at all (as will Royal Melb unfortunately).

the cleveland strawberry festival is now called the redlands spring festival it usually only goes the sat n sun but this year its doin fri sat n sun. it used to have a good following of peole and rides but it seems to have droped of quite dramaitically as its a very small crappy show i can say this as its my local show and i have both volunteered and worked it since they split the 2 shows from the festaival and the cleveland show. last year 06 it got rained out on the 2nd day and i t had heaps of fights breaking out in side show on the saturday night so i felt it was pretty sad although there was a decent line up of rides such as the force 10 (pinks) i hope its a better show now that its going back to the 3 days there was a rumor they might be doing a family free entry day on the friday like they did at redcliffe hears hoping that we get decent rides back again for the lineup this year

Most of the Show People who use to turn up and do the Cleveland Show when it was running will be in the lower half of NSW when the Festival is on, with all the newer rides heading for Adelaide, Melbourne & Perth Shows. Most of the rides that do the Festival are the ones that do the Gold Coast Show.
