This is not correct Space Roller was over here at xmas time and did various shows before heading north, the orbitor hasn't been there for about 3-4 years when it was sold to China. Roller Ghoster hasn't worked shows other than capitals for 2 years. All the new rides well 99% of them are at Sydney Royal and do most of our shows before heading to Cairns.

come one, come all, come in its time for a showtime spin

I was at Gympie last year...

Saw the Space Roller, got a pic and told my friends that we were going on it when it came to Maryborough. They refused. None of my friends are interested in showrides, and it's not as fun by yourself...

Unfortuanately, I was only there to show cattle, so I didn't get to go on any rides. I think all we did was drag the teachers on the dodgems.

But yeah, I want to go back when I finish school, and do a few shows near here... (Gympie, Maryborough, Bundy, mainly. More if I know where they're going next. :P). Gotta wait until '09 though! I don't care if I have to go alone, I've wanted to 'follow' the show for years! :P

Welcome Kahlan, I know what you mean about going on rides by yourself, how boring that your friends would not go on Space Roller with you. Why do you have to wait until 2009.

Lol, I've gotta wait until I finish school, with the subjects I'm doing it's rather difficult when I take time off (Cert. 1 in work readiness, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Ag Science, Maths B, Maths C, English). It was bad enough when I took three days off because of illness, not to mention if I took a few weeks off following the shows! :P

You dont have to follow the shows to ride the rides, will you be showing cattle , or what do you intend to do.

Also school sounds ugh, glad I will never have to worry about that again.

Nah, I don't want to show cattle again, only did it through the school, and now it's getting pretty boring. I just want to do it for the fun of it, however, my parent's have already planned my life out - not including shows. I just love the atmosphere, and the rides are pretty damn good too! But the 'rents would much prefer me to go to uni. Unfortuanately, they don't much like it when I tell them I don't want to... :P

Other options might be showing horses, or just getting my license and some money and doing it for the heck of it. But I'll bet the money will soon run out, knowing me... :twisted:

As a kid I always dreamed of getting a job on one of the rides, however I've been told I won't be welcome back home if I do.

You poor darling, tell your parents you want a gap year to make a decision about what you want to do at Uni, so many kids I know defer, or change mid way, so to me it makes sense to have a gap year.

As for not going home or not being allowed home if you go the show circuit, it is a dangerous thing to do, cause it has a way of getting into the blood and never leaving, I definitely do know that

I've tried that. They're still not happy. I've also tried telling them I want to do Photography or Equine Studies instead of Veterinary Science, but they don't like that idea either. They've told me they'll pay for vet, but not for the others. I'm sure I'll be able to make up my mind by the end of next year though. :P

You must be a bright spark to be doing all those subjects. Science for Life and General English were about my speed but I did get an okay HSC score and have tried my best since then.

Actually, I really enjoyed Science for Life as we got to go to Wonderland for a field trip and had to go on all the rides in order to fill out the worksheets. This wasn't a problem for me but some of the guys were really scared of the rides and offered me money to copy my answers. :lol: It was interesting learning about the physics of each ride and talking to the operators who gave us all sorts of cool facts for the assignments. I know the Physics students did similar worksheets at the RES in recent years when the show was held outside school holidays.

We get to go to dreamworld later in the year for Physics... I think it shall be fun, but again - none of the class members are my friends, which means it'll probably be a bit boring again. Hopefully any rides will make up for it!

Sounds like you had a great time, Gympie is nearly just another surburb of the sunshine coast now, how were the crowds, were there any, does it have a peak time.

It is interesting that there are a few newer rides, I would suggest, because of a few shows in NSW going independent, it has changed the way a few showmen work, sounds like they are trying to make up for shows they have lost in NSW, by doing shows they normally would not do, to help with any losses made earlier in the year, your gain, this is only my opinion.
