Thanks for letting me know about Midnight Madness. When did they give the Crazy Dancer it's new name and can we please have some photos of the rides listed that would be awesome. Also when and where were these rides manufactured?

Just about everything was manufactured at A.R.M U.K. While Chant's Rockstar was manufactured in the U.S.
There's photos of most of the rides scattered all over the forum

Zamperla would have made TPA's Skyflier, it looks similar to the A.R.M model but the actual arms that come out from the tower are different :)

What about Techno Jump? Is that an A.R.M Mega Bounce?

Overall....KMG, Mondial and HUSS are probably our best rides we have... Rainbow and Pirate are technically the only 2 travelling Huss Rides, but we also have PIRATE (Funfields Vic, Adventureworld, Perth) Breakdance, Ranger, UFO, Troika (Luna Park Sydney) Enterprise (Luna Park Melbourne), and to think Wittingslow owned the MOST travelling HUSS rides in the world, is sad to hear.
KMG is doing very well in the Southern Hemisphere, wouldn't surprise me if we saw another Inversion down this way in the future. Mondial only have Space Roller and No Limit here, but both do amazingly well.... Is it not safe to say that Space Roller is our most frequently travelled ride. Not bad for a 3 trailer ride.

KMG IS THE BEST!!! Is it just me or is Space Roller getting slower each year. I am only saying this because my first shot on the Space Roller was amazing! I went on it last year and it wasn't really thrilling :( It probably would've helped if I had a good seat :lol:

Anyway.. Can anyone tell me when the following rides were manufactured: Ali Baba (any Ali would do apart from RockStar), Hangover, Top Gun, Sky Master and Summer Party. Thanks :)
