Bling is one of two Zierer "Star Shape" flat rides. The other is "High Energy" and travels the German fair circuit. It's the flat I want to try out the most.

Bling kinda sucks.. Like a lot.
First ride on it I got 2 full flips. The second (and the last).. We never did one FULL flip :-\

I have the iKirmes DVD and it shows High Energy running a long program with various different moves. I'm hoping this one is run better than Bling as I will most likely ride that one first.

Bling is so ugly and suffers from an awful name, I think this one is way more badass looking.

Yeah Blig did kinda suck. The problem witht he ride is that the seats are always free to swing and because of that they rarely flip because the bottom of your seat is heavier than the top. Really what they need to do to make Bling fun is to add a brake to it's swinging motion to make it kind of like a topspin, so that every now and then the seats lock into place so that the ride can force it to do an inversion.

Apparently the German-run Star Shape is better because the arm moves faster, but I'm unsure as how to prove this.

I don't understand why a big park will put such a low capacity ride. They could take a bigger version of this ride like the Energy Storm .
