Re: MK Fair 28th October

Mondial Capriolo's are the most intense rides on the planet, especially when you are flying upside down past the platform..

Re: Fairs/Travelling Rides - General Discussion

It's can be very intense depending on what way your are facing when you past the platform, if you pass the platform with the car locked upside down that is very intense!

Re: LWV 2010 Rides

Top Buzz is more re rideable than a Tango, though as with most topscans, the right side of your head gets forced into the restraint, when running at full speed. :lol:

Re: LWV 2010 Rides

As evilcod said, myself and him were also surprised that it would be Top Buzz 2 and not simply Top Buzz. I double checked with the park so we just have to take their word for it! Anyone know if this has pre-programmed settings? Only someone on Ride Guide believes it can only run in manual? But yes,...

Re: Fairground Ride Accident

Rode the same one at Goose Fair, felt nice and safe, Tivoli welded some extra bars on the side of the seats to make sure the same accident doesnt happen again, interestingly they haven't done the same for Crows or Parrish's Extremes. Erm, what are these and these , I must be seeing things :shock: [...

Re: Fairs/Travelling Rides - General Discussion

Rock Rage is a very smooth but very intense ride especially when the seats unlock as you can be slammed face first towards the platform which is an intense experience. Its feel very smooth when your going all the way over though, it is a must ride! :)
