Pretty sure it's pasionfruit on the top chuck and then whatever that red sauce is...

^This filling was some grayish-green stuff, which made me think "kiwi" ( a fruit I don't care for). I liked the red sauce, though.

I think it probably looked grey/green (when it's actually orange) due to the poor lighting provided from the shows sub standard lighting designer!

Bloody amatures :)

In a postscript to the tour, Sydney's coaster population has exploded six-fold today, albeit carnie death coasters. Here's the line-up:

Fear Tower: carnie Euro-fighter, kept the rescue authorities busy last year.
Taipan: a Galaxy snooze coaster.
Crazy Mouse: spinning mouse, like nobody has ever ridden one of them.
And for the kiddies, credit whores, and NAMBLA; there's a Dragon Wagon and Miner Mike.

I work across the road from the Easter show site & the euro-fighter has already broken down at least once. Not bad for day one!

That thing is scary, but given the chance, I'd ride it for sure.

Looks like a decent line up of rides this year.

I'm a culture ho

Ah now, please don't sully the good name of the Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter by lumping that godawful heap of junk in the same category. Cool & Fresh was by all accounts diabolical/awful when it operated in this part of the world, but then there's quite a tradition of Europeans shipping their undesirables to Australia... :)

Well... some of the European rides they have shipped to us I would happily accept... but "Cool n Fresh" is not one of them :P

We got Hoefnagels Space Roller, HARMS No Limit and several other Euro major's that I am not complaining about... but from the review's i've read of that coaster... SEND IT BACK!!!
