I have some theme park related questions,
1)Does Disneyland's Pirate Ship run on a rail?
2) It says on Wikipedia that the uniforms for the Ride OPs at DCA's Twilight Zone cost around 1K, True?
So this is like the random thread, but theme park related, cool.
1)Yeah, there is an I beam down the middle of the river
2)Well, an expensive business suit can cost that much so its possible...Disney somehow manage to spend huge sums on everything, so it actually wouldn't surprise me.

The new Cars Land will contain three attractions and will span 12 acres. The first, Radiator Springs Racers, will be an E-Ticket attraction using the technology of Epcot's Test Track. It will be among the most expensive rides ever built at an estimated 200 million dollars. 
Damn Disney for not investing here!

Though evidently it would have been two obvious to 'borrow' some of the other legoland pictograms:

Searching was to strenuous, so Ill phaze my question like a pop quiz to make it acceptable:
1) What was on the land where Superman Escape is housed now? and specifics
You Have 60 seconds.
Wasn't it the station and queue area for the 'back lot' tram tour they used to run? And then it was an entrance to get to the movie magic show... or was that part of the 'back lot' tour?

Not that I am upset about the removal of the old show but when will MW realise that the ride/attraction count needs to increase as time goes by, not stay the same.
What I meant by this section of the post wasn't directly relating to MMSES rather the whole park in general. It was just that the removal of an attraction to make way for another is common place at MW and while talking about this attractions remval for a new attraction (SE) I though it would be a good time to tie the whole idea that MW has, that a new ride needs to replace a current attraction. Oh and yes I know there are exceptions but as a general rule.

And just on that note, does anybody know Dreamworlds land boundaries on the northern and easter sides of the parks?
There seems to be some sort of plantation (with sheep) on the northern side (next to the vintage cars) and was just curious as to if they are actually run by Dreamworld.
A lot of that plantation area is all eucalypt (and theres not just sheep.. theres all sorts of crazy stuff out there!). Because of the large amounts of koalas at dreamworld, they have to be able to generate a sizeable amount of their own eucalypt to be allowed to house them.
But yeah, Basically that plantation, all of the bush land behind that etc is owned by Macquarie. To give you an idea, Dreamworld Currently occupies about 30Ha of a total 85Ha Site.

Wow that does look great Whitewater West Certainly have some great attractions! Re The one on the left does it just go straight down after the turnaround without the bumps because I think that would be awesome. They both look steeper than out current ones. I hope that the new Sunshine Coast Water park at Aussieworld gets one of these.
I just discovered something cool...Whitewater West make a line of racing slides called a "Whizzard". One design is a direct rip-off of Proslides octopus racer, but at the same time they have second another variant which just looks insane:

Perhaps fire up Google earth, and measure using the ruler tool (in path mode) and just trace over the layout, and that would give a rough idea.
If you wanted to be really accurate, you could measure the horizontal distance covered by the drops, lifts etc, then get the drop height stat off the database, and then use Pythagoras to work out how much distance you cover on the drop track, lift track etc.

THERE'S A WORLD I'D LIKE TO LIVE IN, A WORLD I'D LIKE TO SEE
WHERE'S THERE'S TOO MUCH FUN FOR EVERYONE, AND STILL LOTS LEFT FOR ME
WHERE THERES MAGIC ON EVERY CORNER, AND A SMILE ON EVERY FACE
IF I COULD JUST GET OUT OF THIS PERFECT DREAM, INTO THIS PERFECT PLACE...
Wouldn't It be Wonderful, If the World Still Had Wonderland?
