the bush beast before it went to hell

9 posts in this topic

does anyone remember the day when the bb was nice and smooth, fast, airtime packed, and SCARY. I remember riding it for the first time in early 96 (like the 1st of january) and cresting the hill, i looked to my left and saw the wooden rails bending for the drop so i closed my eyes and SCREAMED, i was nearly flung out of the thing so i avoided it for many years then i rode it again and it sucked, now all my friends love it cause they don't know good coasters and i HATE it.

I'm w/you...TBB was once a fun rollercoater to ride, but now it just shakes & rattles around that darn track. Is it the way it's settled over the years or is it the carriages or...would re tracking really help this sorry coaster. It's a real shame that a city the size of Sydney has only this as it's " top" coaster experience huh? :rolleyes:

How about something built especially for WL???...Now THAT would be a real concept huh? I went on a coaster in Santa Cruz a few weeks ago that was built in the 1930's now...admittedly it had been renoveated or what ever they do, but it was fast, thrilling & a great coaster, guess they don't build them like that anymore :D It's called the Giant Dipper & was only about half the size of TBB but it certainly made up for it with the fantastic air time & it didn't shake the fillings out of your teeth either like TBB does.

what are u all going on about the bush beast is great i love it, i mean the first drop is a hell razer even though i put my hands up but i love the whole lot, its fast still and its still the best and the only wooden roller coaster in australia! so we shouldnt complain as we are lucky to have a wooden roller coaster next to us, its different from the rest and a much different experience.

Kakie, I'm totally scared of your avatar. I hated that movie!!
LMAO, can u imagine her standing outside your window at night, scraping on the glass, waiting for you to open the door, to 'let her in'. Well apart from scaring myself i think the bush beast was a great coaster, its just wonderland don't know how to maintain the ride. Is it still closed?

ive been on alot of coasters all around the worls and let me tell ya, the bush beast is crap now. before the "trims" the beast was great and the roughness gave it character. but it does indeed just roll along the track now. it has no energy
