Re: Orbitor Ride burning question???

Re: Gladstone Show 2010

Thanks for that Josh, I have been told by some people in the industry that AAF members are usually bitter and not very positive about showmen's rides etc, we should not apologise for printing the truth, there are definitely times that some people write things on this site for a grudge, sometimes ot...

Re: 3 major accidents in 24 hours

Always sad news to hear about these accidents, Booster type rides have not been around for long but i cant seem to recall of a ride with a worst history then these seems to be a few each year that topple over or throw the gondola.
