  1. !?! Unless you meant they need to bring in Hussrainbow Looks like I found a way to post something without having the post altered.
  2. We've been Ali Baba Rolled! Oh No! (Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up plays)
  3. There's a problem here, each time I mention the ride I prefer, it gets replaced with Ali Baba. What's going on?
  4. Hope not. That ride is a piece of shit. There's Music Trip, the Australian built KMG Miami, but I dunno if it's any better than Ali Baba.
  5. Jobe, I am not so sure what rides will be coming for LPS's summer holidays, but I sure hope they will present a better lineup of rides than before. For one, I agree that they should bring in Rainbow to LPS, because that's the ride they originally intended to have back in 1995. It would be great if they bring in the flume ride, since it's an ideal ride for a hot season. They should add a KMG and a Mondial (Space Roller) ride for good measure.
  6. Actually, what the posted email meant was that following the determination of what caused the Rainbow accident at Sweden, Huss told the owner/operators to reverse the earlier modifcation as they were going to provide them better machine parts so that it can be fixed without risking another accident. Now I don't mind other alternatives to the Rainbow, but don't get me wrong, the Ali Baba is a waste of space. The sooner the updates on the Rainbow can be done, the better I would say. I'm also seeing the funny side of it, because even though our Rainbow didn't turn up on the Australian showground
  7. Do you think Huss has anything to do with the incident at Sweden? I mean, they wouldn't intentionally do away with a ride they manufactured, would they?
  8. Accidents happen, and these things could happen with any other ride, not just this one. So to say, it's a bit harsh for anyone to state that a well-established amusement ride manufacturer don't know how to manufacture rides, because they did try to offer the best thrills with the rides they made for the casual and hardcore riders. Besides, the incidents happened only recently, and if their rides do break down frequently, then it's safe to say that they didn't do a good job in manufacturing good rides.
  9. Thanks for the Facebook group, themeparkgc. Yes, I have seen the thread on that website. It does give me some relief that they're doing the best they can making updates on the ride to ensure that the same kind of incident won't ever happen again, but I'm still wondering when the ride would return. All the while, there's at least some good rides. Space Roller and the two KMG rides Extreme Speed and XXXL must have the same kind of thrill intensity as the Rainbow even they're not the same concept, so I will check 'em out next time I see 'em. All the same, if the Rainbow doesn't come for the 2011
  10. Is Dreamworld really getting a B&M coaster? That would be awesome!
  11. I only wish someone in the ride community could shed some light on the subject or at least knows what's going on.
  12. I guess that just one incident in Liseburg, Sweden, caused the Huss Rainbow to bite the dust.
  13. Wow, B&M sure make a lot of top-notch quality coasters. Australia should get its first B&M coaster real soon.
  14. Thank you! Glad someone shares the same viewpoint as I do! Ali Baba blows! Bring back Rainbow!
  15. R.I.P. Huss Rainbow 1983 - 2008
  16. It was there last year, , but not this year . Even though most of the OCS rides are in the carnival, they didn't have Rainbow.
  17. What I would really like to know is, is the Rainbow really over and done with being in the showgrounds?
  18. Just checked out the Fisher's Ghost Festival carnival not too long ago. It's got a pretty decent selection. There's the double-armed Ranger, No Limit, and Space Roller, just to name a few. There's also the crappy Fear tower coaster that broke down at the RES montha ago. Not too bad what they offered this year, though I haven't gone to it. I only hope that next year the ride selection would be a lot better.
  19. I hope you're referrring to my rant above, and not being sarcastic about it. Seriously, when it comes to making a ride that replicates another ride, they are horrible abomantions, unless of course it's a ride manufactured by Huss, KMG, or Mondial. Now some rides by other companies seem more thrilling than others no doubt about that, and to be fair, well, I can't be a good critic unless I know some good examples of good rides made by companies apart from the ones I mentioned. I know that the KMG Speed is a good version of the Fabbri Booster, and Mondial has added more to the thrill factor with
  20. I guess most people prefer Ali Baba over Rainbow. I know it's an old topic, and some of you may have different opinions, but honestly, the Ali Baba really is a poor man's version of the Rainbow, and that's not saying much. *shrugs shoulders*
  21. Ok. Well, I meant to say that Sky Flyer and Wave Swinger are similar in terms of being a flying chairs ride.
  22. You know, I give up trying to find people who will raise sense into the showground organisers.
  23. Wow, that looked pretty intense. The track design is obviously Intamin. Just looked up Wikipedia, and it's an Intamin ZacSpin.
