Perth Royal Show video

Post by benclare » Sun Oct 07, 2007 7:26 pm

Hi all!

Was just having a little browse of You Tube and discovered a really awesome vid showing many of the rides at this year's show. Obviously I can't comment on the picture quality but the sound is excellent and you can hear such rides as the Mega Drop, Ranger and Python Loop. To check it out, just go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSlAmCVLivg

Enjoy!

Thanks Ben, now I dont need to go on it, also it was up there for 35 seconds, before it dropped, I have never counted that before, wonder if they change that or it stays at that all the time.

Nice work Matt, do you still have the beard?

Orbitor isnt as bad as it looks..I'm sure you would enjoy it Hurricane,particularly if you have no trouble with No Limit or Zipper.
Ha Ha,I guess you checked out my You Tube profile Princess?.Yeah still have the beard..and have waist length hair too!.

runs for 90 second at full speed , that doesnt include start up or stopping. It cant be changed due to health regulations dealing with the amount of G forces the ride produces. you pretty much get stuck in your seat. when its going out full throttle.

Thanks Clay, I was wondering about the time you are suspended, that is when you build up all the adrenaline, so if you know when to expect the fall, less adrenaline build up, less of a shock, imo.

depends who's operating, personally i like the slow over the top ride, but other operators like doing the big button hold which sends you over too fast.
