Great videos Huss especially the Space Roller onride. Good choice for song too with "Levels" playing in the night shot.
Can notice a difference in the Kamikaze's motion here, they had a new computer put in or computer drive system modified early last year. Personally not as good if you ask me, I'd rather one that takes a heap of swings to build the momentum then loop quite quickly pinning you to the seat as you swing over the deck

I kinda enjoyed going over the top slowly and hanging entirely out of my seat.... it feels soo much better than TOP GUN to ride... much smoother and comfortable!

I haven't ridden Watkins Kamikaze for years but I always remember it being a great ride and nowhere near as noisy as the ranger!

Definately Huss, think any Fabbri machine is better than the A.R.M built ride. All in all a double armed ride is better than the single. As a rider and as an owner of a ride obviously
