it travels on 2 trialers i am sure, some of the lights on it were not working and the plexiglass on the gondolas needed a good clean, but i am sure he did well and i am sure it will continue to do well.

i really liked the deal or no deal game and it seemed very popular, i know i gave them $10 just to see how it worked.

i have another picture i think of haunted hotel and it is green in that one, it is a shame about mixer and the front of the ride, i think there are a few things that could improve it

True PNC, the wheel travels on 2 trailers as I seen them at the Rocky Show and looked like they had been newly registered in QLD. Sorry to hear you blew 10 bucks on the "deal" stall to see how it works. It all depends on how the case is opened! If it is opened one way, say to the left (Upright) you win, but if it is opened the other way, to the right (UPSIDE DOWN) you lose, (or something to that effect if you get my drift?)
WHOOPS!!! Did I just give it away? :roll:

Just a question in general,seeing that I've never been to the EKKA (yet). I would have thought that Shorts Dodgems would be at the EKKA for sure, but this year his Dodgems were at the Mt. Morgan show (just out of Rocky) on Saturday 14th August. Does he usually do the EKKA? I remember going to Mt. Morgan show about 5 years ago and Lauries Dodgems were there.

Short's used to have their Dodgems on, now Pink's Crazy Cars took the position.

Same as Sydney Show, Short's new track was meant to be on but as it still hasn't arrived, Pink's now have their track on

Well... I'm sure if Chris does read the forums he is going to laugh at this little bit...

I was talking to him and he asked if I wanted the "Long" or "Short" Cycle. So I asked for the long one, so me and my friend jumped on the ride. After about 2 minutes my friend started to look a little bit ill. And then out of NO WHERE I had vomit all down my front and over the harness! Someone on the seat opposite me had thrown up all over me! My friend then looked at me to see what had happened and when she saw me covered... she lost it too! All over me! The ride then spun for another 10 - 15 seconds before I signaled at Chris to stop the ride. So he did and was nearly in hysterics seeing me covered in it

Just had to do this to you once again Hurricane.... couldn't stop laughing for at least 5 minutes since I remembered another incident with you at the Ekka a number of years ago with another ride. Specially when you started turning a slight colour of green...remember

Chris doesn't need to read the forums as he saw it first hand, and I know exactly what his username is on the forums. If it's not him, then it's Luke who would have told Chris that it was on the forums. And with age... comes not being able to handle rides as much. A ride on the Claw at Dreamworld for example always leaves me feeling a bit giddy in the stomach like the Sea World Pirate Ship used to. Spinning rides don't make me sick like the Cyber Party, Space Roller etc. Just Pirate Ships or anything like it.
