1 Welcome to the Rye Carnival

2 Rye Carnival This a fictional layout based on the annual traveling carnival that operates on the Rye foreshore during Christmas each year.

3 Rye Carnival The rides modelled on this layout depict a selection of the rides that have actually appeared at the Rye Carnival.

4 Rye Carnival For the past 50 plus years the Rye carnival has been operated by Wittingslow Amusements the oldest amusement company in Victoria.

11 Rye Carnival Now if you adhere to the warning sign We can begin the ride!

12 Rye Carnival The Breakdance by Huss was first manufactured in The ride was an instant success worldwide, and is now HUSS's most produced creation with over 110 distributed world wide - appealing immensely to riders of all ages.

13 Rye Carnival The ride was based heavily off the older Schwartzkopf Calypso. Underneath all the scaffolding, the basic mechanics of the ride are very similar to a Sizzler - however, Huss added the following…

14 Rye Carnival a slight incline of 7.5 o to the whole ride structure. multi-directional, variable speed hydraulic drives. ingenious "..obliquely mounted" 360 o gondola swivels.....resulting in a whole new ride.

15 Rye Carnival This gives a very enjoyable, fast-paced motion resembling movements experienced on a Scrambler / Sizzler / Cha Cha, but is far better thanks to the incline of both the main hub, and the gondola joints. This combined with variable drive speeds, creates an infinite possibility of random movement patterns.

16 Rye Carnival Despite the large size of the ride (20m x 20m), it can be racked on 2 x 40ft trailers. As a result of the Breakdance's huge success worldwide, HUSS now manufactures 3 versions of the ride:

17 Rye Carnival The standard 16 gondola, 36 seater (adults), with backdrop and incline of 7.5 o The Breakdance 2 - with 24 gondolas, seating 48 adults, with backdrop and incline. The Breakdance gondola, 36 seater, no backdrop or central incline. ie. More compact.

18 Rye Carnival There are currently 4 Breakdance's in Australia, three travelling road models and the other at Sydney's Luna Park.

19 Rye Carnival A Sobema Breakdance on a Summer night at the Rye Carnival (Melbourne, Australia)

20 Rye Carnival The Rainbow (HUSS) was first manufactured in 1983, containing many design elements of the Ranger (HUSS 1981). The ride concept of the Rainbow was quickly copied by various other ride manufacturers, failing to match the size and overall quality of the ride. eg. A.R.M's Ali-baba.

21 Rye Carnival This ride really has to be seen in motion to be appreciated. It's typically HUSS - offering riders unbeatable smoothness (hydraulically driven), and spectators a graceful, well-lit, perfectly themed picture. It's amazing height of 66ft dominates the set- up of any carnival.

22 Rye Carnival The Rainbow appeals to riders of all ages, offering a basic orbiting sensation, with alternating movements of varying speed, both clockwise and anti-clockwise. Generally speaking, the ride sensation is nothing too major, with basic side-to-side motions, and slight weightlessness sensations. - thus the reason for it's wide appeal amongst both the young and old. …even your great- grandma'd enjoy this one.

23 Rye Carnival There is one Rainbow travelling Australia (3 trailers) This picture shows the Rainbows lower arm with HUSSs patented parallel conduct system, keeping the gondola upright at all times

24 Rye Carnival The arm then locks into the lower section of the hub

25 Rye Carnival An official patent diagram of the Rainbow's parallel conduct system, with the chain moving in accordance with the boom, ensuring the gondola remains fixed in a horizontal position. Incidentally, Chance's Falling Star uses this chain system (which can be seen through a small maintenance window in both booms). Another alternative to this chain type system would be some kind of crank shaft. (this system can be seen outside the boom on A.R.M's Ali-baba).

26 Rye Carnival A close-up of the Rainbows powerful hydraulic pump, situated at the rear base

27 Rye Carnival This small plate is the 24-bolt attachment point to the main gondola

28 Rye Carnival A Rainbow being set up. The 2 arm pieces are transported alongside the rides base, while the gondola, platforms and lighting are carried on a smaller trailer. A crane is required for the rides assembly. Note: the rides huge sun face can be seen on the ground

29 Rye Carnival Gondola racked

30 Rye Carnival Wittingslow's Rainbow, Royal Melbourne Show

33 Rye Carnival The Octopus originating back in the 1950's, rides of this type became very common. Various US manufacturers built them with the main company being Eyerly.

34 Rye Carnival Original Everly patent drawings

35 Rye Carnival The Soundwave / CHA CHA ride was developed by Chance Ind in 1929 variations of this ride are currently in production.

36 Rye Carnival This photo is of the Soundwave at the Rye carnival in 1999.
