I was lucky enough to get an invite to the MegaRanch by all time good guy Nick Petropoulos. We started off the day with a warm up on the 18 foot mini mega. A normal vert ramp is 12 foot so this was big. Then we transistioned to the mega ramp where we dropped in the landing and rode the 27 foot ramp. The take off is 55 foot high. This thing is massive! - Joe Stuart (Shiftyroyale.com).
About the MegaRanch - by Peter Wilson (Megaranchaustralia.com)
“My name is Peter Wilson, I am a Golf Professional, and a winner of tournaments around the world. My passion for Surfing & Skateboarding made me create an event a few years ago, I staged Australia’s largest one day golf event, and positioned a vert ramp in middle of the golf event!
After this event I noticed that for the top level skateboarders and BMX riders, there are no facilities for them to train for the big air competitions. Currently in the United States, there is Bob Burnquist’s Private backyard Mega Ramp, Danny Way has created a private ramp off the charts in Hawaii, and there is the Woodward West Mega Ramp (torn down in 2019?).
In Australia there is not many high standard facility’s available for my action sports athlete friends to train on are no Mega Ramp’s a lot of them have moved to America. If my kids wanted to Pursue a career in Actions sports I didn’t want them to abandon Australia, so with my main sidekick Chaddy we took it upon ourselves to create the Megaranch training facility. After the first one had to be relocated it was the perfect opportunity to build it better and properly, we wanted to create a Megaramp that was safe enough to progress all ages into there perspective sports through expert guidance in camp style environments. We now have created a place for BMX Riders and Skateboarders in Australia to have a place to train on, and potentially reach the X-Games level”.
I love riding mega ramps and I love playing golf, but I never thought I would get the chance to do them both in the same day. My buddy Scotty Crawford and I took a trip down to the Megaranch in Melbourne to do exactly that! - Chris Haffey (PLAY).
Claiming a 900 for my country, floating a 720, and taking a face full of resi after the head wind from the first half had dropped and I over shot the sweet spot by a few feet. - Chris Haffey.
Experienced my first hit on the mega ramp on the weekend. Doesn’t look bad but I’m bed ridden today with the gnarliest whiplash and friction burn…
Total REMing today :) It feels so easy when you land on this thing, however it’s a dramatic realisation when thing don’t go to plan. – Cj Wellsmore

I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to ride the Nitro Circus mega ramp when it was in Sydney last week on there Australian Tour. So i finished up after a full days work and headed out to the olympic park. It was definitely up there with the most incredible experiences of my life! Especially cause there is no pulling out once you drop in on the gigantic Roll before hitting the 50ft gap. ;) Good times! - Cj Wellsmore.

This is by far the biggest ramp set up that I have ever hit. The take off was a few feet taller than your standard vert ramp. That makes this easily the biggest double misty I have ever done. I was so stoked to be able to put this one down! You can check out a few other angles of it in Action Figures the movie that is available for download on iTunes. - Chris Haffey.
