According to the KMG Rides Facebook page, a 2nd KMG speed is under construction for Goldenway Amusements named "Speed 2"

Here is a pic of it under construction:

Why not shop around for something new & original?,we already have two of these,or are they selling their original and replacing it with a new model?.

They are getting two models so they can do more shows...there is the demand for these sort of rides. For example they could do Melbourne with one, and Perth with the other. IMO it's not a bad business move and with Chants Freestyle not doing many shows in QLD any more its a perfect idea to be able to do double the shows now.

They did, but as far as i'm aware it wasn't sold. Maybe they decided that this was a better option than selling up...

Would seem a bit odd if they were sending it back calling it "Speed 2"

That's just my opinion really. I almost feel like it would have been better just naming it "Speed" even if they are 2 units that appear to look much the same.

I think the original unit may be staying here in Australia and possibly going to someone in the family?? Not 100% on that but hey agree with you Hurricane they are a great ride. For the size they are quick set-up and pull-down, look great and are good earners so they may just be doing that possibly

Does look awesome, I was thinking the same Huss thought the front would've been a bit more flashy. Be interesting to see much of a difference with the ride experience, apparently Speed being an earlier model goes faster than Freestyle but in syaing that Freestyle has more action in the flipping and tipping compared to Speed

I am really undecided on weather I like the look of this unit over the original one. IMO the original one looks much cleaner and simplistic and at night looks great. I really do wish they did something a bit more with the lower panelling though as it's very plain.

If they decide to set up at Mardi Gras it'll fit right in.
