Photographs of Tilburgse Kermis, a large fair in The Netherlands, have been posted on ThemeParks.ie. The various machines that can be seen include XXL, a fully portable equivalent to the Frisbee ride.

A portable equivalent to the *Giant* Frisbee, not the standard one - those are a dime a dozen!

What were the Psycho & Roller Ghoster rides like? They look like they could be a lot of fun.

I skipped Psycho but I've done it before - it's a haunted house style walkthrough with live actors; very good. As regards Roller Ghoster, that was a bit on the disappointing side to be honest; a mediocre ghost train, nothing like as spectacular on the inside as the outside would suggest.

It's to bad we don't see more rides like that around here. Especially the dark rides.

A Giant Frisbee holds 50 people. That thing isn't even close to that.

I meant in height, not in passenger volume. XXL swings to one hundred and fifty feet in the air. See the manufacturers page:
In fact, I've just checked the Huss web page, and it seems that XXL actually swings higher:

Well I guess I always felt the "giant" came from its capacity, not its height.

Different views I guess.
Having said that does much KMG equipment appear in the US? I'm not sure I've ever seen any.

I've seen an Afterburner, but I can't think of where (someone will tell me I'm sure). Doesn't Chance-Morgan sell them here?

Just ran into an Afterburner (sold as FireBall in the US - and yes, by Chance-Morgan) at Celebration City. (video
