So it is now less than a month until the 1st details of the MW's new rollercoaster are expected to be released so here is a poll for everyone to guess what they think it will be.
Question 1's options (except 'Unknown World-1st Rollercoaster Product') are derived from Mack Rides' catalogue/website so look there if you want further information.
Question 2 is not an opinion question about whether the rollercoaster should have VR. It is a question on whether it could.
Question 3's options are derived from upcoming franchise movies from Warner Brothers (present to July 2018). Due to the limit of 20 options, I've excluded original stand-alone films and any films post-July 2018. 4 pre-July 2018 franchise films, 'Chicken Soup For The Soul', 'Live By Night', 'Ready Player One' & 'Tomb Raider' were excluded from the poll mainly due to issues with the poll.
The meanings of each Question 2 option:
None - No VR ever.
Immediate Add-On - Rollercoaster not built for VR but has it available as an optional extra experience from opening day.
Future Add-On - Rollercoaster not built for VR but one day in the future will have VR added as an optional extra experience.
Pure - Rollercoaster built for VR.
If you are not sure what some of the franchises are of, here are links to their respective Wikipedia articles (these articles are of the franchise - not the movie):
Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them
Going In Style
Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror
I added 'Other' options as MW's rollercoasters feature media that was released from up to 3 years before the rollercoaster's opening. MW's rollercoasters also relate to media that was released up to 2.5 years after the rollercoaster opened.
Also, I made the poll so everyone can see who voted for what option. @djrappa, since you know a lot about the new rollercoaster, you better avoid voting (unless you're happy to reveal everything ).
With this being discussed about in most topics and construction starting soon it might be time to for its own topic.
We all know TopGolf is going to take up a lot of land but where will this baby go. From what information we have out there, I believe that TopGolf Australia will be based on the one located in Las Vegas.
To get this topic going I have scaled the images together using AutoCAD and tried to position it into likely locations.
This is the location I think some people think it will go. Only thought I have on this one is why fence the swamp if you're going to need to pull it down again.
This options makes some sense to me but is does mean the number 1 filming tank needs to relocated and it’s not your everyday backyard pool. On the flip side, removing the filming tank could open up the whole area up to MW.
Overflow car park. This could be why MW is planning a new car park. I would think MW would want the new car park finished first before any constructed happened in this area. MW saying construction to start this year might be referring to constructing the car park in readiness to resume the current overflow car park.
Which leaves current area behind AOS. We know a new show is coming and maybe MW have new plans for the animals.
In this location I can still see 6 stables left for MW to use. Maybe AOS new show will only need half the amount of animals in it.
@AlexB can I have an image of the new sound stage. This could all be undone by its location.
On Saturday, October 1, myself and @JaggedJanine (one half of MWGC) are going to have a very long day. This will result in us either being closer friends or hating each other
We're taking part in both the Star Tour & the Ultimate Terror Tour. This is basically going to be a 15 hour day at Movie World. We're mostly doing this to be able to say we were the first people who did it.
Anyway, firstly a huge thank you to the amazing Lauren from VRTP for helping to make it happen. It literally wouldn't have been possible without her help.
We're planning on obviously getting a lot of photos, but also doing some live streams from both tours.
If you want to check these out, you can either wait for photos and videos and more reviews to be posted on Parkz, or, if you want to watch it live, get up early and follow the following pages:
