Some said they didn’t get enough for their money, but what little they saw at the Kensington Oval was awesome.
Last Sunday night’s show Zero Gravity promised daring stunts 50 feet high, and the patrons screamed at what they were offered, but many left hungry for more action.
After a near two-hour late start, Zero Gravity got under way with four bikemen – two from Texas, one from Missouri and the other from Atlanta – showcasing mind-boggling skills as they soared through the air.
Both children and adults cheered loudly from the packed stands for both the local and international daredevils.
While the international stuntsmen did back flips, free hands and 360-degree spins in mid-air, the Bajan contingent were “jonesin”, doing free-hand wheelies and a few donuts.
But less than an hour after the show officially started, the rain brought it to an early end.
Those seeking more entertainment headed over to the Party Stand where they were thrilled by Crimeson and his crew during the after party.
Promoter Nigel Scotland said he would definitely be looking to host the event again.
Scotland apologized for the late start, and admitted he had a few challenges, but said he wanted to “ensure safety first”.
“We are learning from our mistakes, but we had to make sure it was a safe and controlled environment before we started, but I’m hoping to do it again and make it bigger and better!” Scotland told the DAILY NATION. (CT)
