Not quite, the Orbitor used to rotate then the arms gradually swang out on an angle where as the Energy Storm swings right out and eventually goes all the way up and over until they are upside down (facing the floor). Hence the over the shoulder restraints on the Energy Storm and not the flimsy piss fart lap bars on the Orbitor, which I may add had the chance of coming unlatched due to the flexing of the carriages. Something I had first hand experience at!

Royal show just under a week away,

I am planning to do an AAF Get together day on either the first or last day of the show, where we will attempt to do a "Rideathon" that i did last year one ride after the other, i know it sounds crazy but any suggestions forwarded to me will be much appreciated..

Cheers
Alan

Hey guys, do any of you know if the Cyber Party is there this year? Didn't mind that last year. It was definitely a step up from the Crazy Dance. Would be disappointed if it didn't make a reappearance. Cheers :)

Welcome aboard Coco75, I am not 100% Sure if cyberparty would return this year after last year's turn out who really enjoyed it like myself,Ive heard on a competition on Radio Station 92.9 win family passes to the show and one of the announcers said to one winner, you get to ride the mixer etc lol, im like to myself : serious how lame lol...

Btw if any W.A. AAF member who is free to meet up on Monday (Queens Birthday) i will be out and about, just look for me floating around sideshow alley taking photos but not riding the attractions and aswell returning on the Last Day to attempt to ride every attraction, so if you see me going from ride to another with a bunch of people around the grounds thats me!

Thanks Thrillseeker08 :) , oh well if it's not it's not. It'll be a shame though! I know, I've heard them too lol. :lol:

Hope some members can meet up with you on Monday! I'm heading there on Saturday....yes I know there's the stupid train strike, but that won't stop me lol. Always go on the Saturday, for some reason I feel safer on the rides as they've just been serviced and checked.

I'll be there tomorrow morning getting photos of sideshow for clients and back on Sunday evening with friends. I don't want to meet any of you, because I will forget your names and then it's just awkward.

Don't introduce yourself if you spot my avatar, because none of them will be me and then it will be really awkward.

I'm serious.

Have fun.

Cyber Party will not be at the Perth Show this year, Trindall's didn't think it was worth the long drive over for only one show. Which is understandable, at least when March's go over there they try and do a few shows at least.

Good Morning all on this sunny fine beautiful day,

Show Day is today, looking forward to checking out this Year's attractions including the Zipper (Which caught my eye) in last nights feature in seven news, so for thoses who will be out keep an eye out for a guy with a camera or having his photo taken next to a ride with my missus and the family!

Mind you its my first official outing being introduced with the family, so all wish me luck... Photos and review to come of day one later tonight.

Take care

Weather was good yesterday, but not all that busy while I was there (until about 2ish).

Apparently a cable snapped on the Mega Drop - all I saw was a closed sign in the ticket booth.

Back tonight with some friends.

Nice photos thanks Thrillseeker. Good to see Twin FLip is back in action and Mixer is looking good aswell. How's that been going? Had any problems and is it pulling in riders?
