Absolutely no idea what this is about.
Ohhh, more than a ninety degree angle. Now we will see who had what for lunch.
The Joker, but I don't know what Arkham Asylum is.
We were near where this ride began. There would be a hydraulic movement sound as something activated and then from out of a tin structure the carriage shot out.
We were up the top end of the park now where it was quiet and honestly, a bit spooky.
This ride was the absolutely the worst to watch, with riders being upside down and at many different angles while suffering a lot of gravity force.
Back to near the entrance. Hello Officer.
I do at least know Batman.
If I was tempted by any ride, it would be this one. A boat like carriage disappears into the mountain for a few minutes.
The carriage emerges at speed and whee, down it comes.
And then disappears in a blast of water.
The water falls away to expose the thrillseekers.
Some victims would be grinning and laughing, some with a shocked look on their faces and some with the jaws clenched and face muscles tight.
A rather thin Marilyn impersonator.
Stunt cars R? Must we? While we waited in the stands, much fun was had with the screen and a camera. One man lifted his phone to take a snap of himself on the screen and immediately he disappeared from the screen. A second later he reappeared and again raised his phone to snap himself and again he disappeared. This was repeated a few times and the crowd was laughing heartily.
The show was very good. It was not just cars burning rubber. We were part of making a movie. Some from the crowd were hauled out as participants and their parts filmed. The crowd in the stands was just that. With some swift editing, by the end of the show we had a movie about a young car race driver who travels to the city to compete in a major car race for the prize money to save his father's farm from a mortgage foreclosure. His principal competitor is of course a bad guy.
One of the last scenes is a car hitting a petrol bowser, causing an explosion and a fire. It gave me a bit of a fright when it happened and I was too slow to catch the explosion with the camera. The show was really good fun and not just for car hoons.
A bus back to Surfers was due at 2.35 and after a short wait it arrived. While not packed, there were people standing. I knew the bus stopped along the way near a tram station, but the route had been altered because of the erection of grandstands and fencing for a forthcoming car race in the streets. I did spot a tram station and by changing to the tram, we would not have to walk so far back to the hotel. We jumped off the bus and a tram was just arriving. We sprinted and made it onto the tram and then realised we had not touched our Go Cards on before we boarded. At home the practice is to touch on once on the tram, not before you board. In spite of us having seen a lot of ticket checkers, we got away with it for just one stop to Cypress Avenue, which turned out to be closer to our hotel that the one in Surfers proper that we had been using.
We had a late lunch at the hotel cafe and then a rest before taking our daily beach stroll. After a pre dinner drink in our room and we wandered the streets looking for a restaurant that appealed to us. I would have liked some Thai food but such places in the centre of Surfers seemed in short supply. The couple of Chinese places did not appeal and we ended up at an Italian place where we had a terrific pizza served on what looked like a cake stand. The bottle of wine was expensive but excellent and rounded off a good day.
Oh yes, remember the lad with blue hair who was at the same hotel where we dined the previous evening? We saw him twice today, once in a Surfers shop and then again at Movie World, still with his phone glued to his ear.
