I like the part about famously theivin' Fabbri. I can't believe they get away with stuff like that whilst the victims such as KMG and Reverchon can only stare on in disbelief.

Good on KMG for fighting back with a better design though.

Interesting read. Awesome work with getting this interview!

Hi Anon,

Thanks for the comments. I think it was Reverchon who basically had on their River Rapids ride page: "Don't be fooled by cheaper alternatives" basically saying that everyone who bought the stolen Fabbri design would have a far more unreliable ride than if they bought a Reverchon version.

I think it is funny that Fabbri get credit for the Booster as if it were their idea too.

Wow great work on getting this interview! The Fabbri thing is hilarious how they were going to do a 1 trailer ride and then just copied KMG. I also thought it was interesting that KMG aren't going to focus on larger rides like XXL. Wasn't there supposed to be a second XXL for Maier in Switzerland?

2 really good articles there. I loved the interview with KMG and you asked a lot of questions i wouldn't even have thought about.

The article on travelling coasters is interesting too. I hadn't realised quite how poor some of the recent coasters had been until I realised Euro star was 10 YEARS ago!

I really really like the interviews you do here. They go beyond just banine arse licking and ask really interesting questions. It was interesting to learn about Tivoli and Chance ride's relationship with KMG too and I never knew that they were behind the Miami either.
