Village Roadshow Theme Parks' latest campaign has been appearing throughout TV, web and print advertising. A billboard for this campaign featuring a ride in the very same park seems to make that leap from advertising to corporate brainwashing. YES BENEVOLENT THEME PARK, NOTHING BEATS THE FEELING.
The San Francisco inspired architecture is beautiful, but like the real San Francisco it really doesn't handle wet weather all that well.
To answer the question on everyone's mind, yes it does have hooks. The suspense truly is worthy of a Dirty Harry film... JUST TELL US WHAT TODAY'S GRILL IS!!!!
The sign has reappeared next to the ordering window. Of course it still makes absolutely no sense given that the menu doesn't change daily, rendering it the sort of bizarre mystery that only Dectective Harry Callahan could solve.
The "today's grill is" sign has been arbitrarily removed.
Several air conditioning technicians were seen working on the units for the currently unused Show Stage.
Some speculate that the Boot Hill Graveyard might be relocated to the bare hills that surround the Show Stage.
Further up the hill we see some tradesmen working around the Show Stage building.
The departure of the Guessing Game kiosk ushers in a whole new guessing game for theme park fans as construction moves forward.
If a sledge hammer and a broom are all that they're working with, then progress might be slow going...
The chronically under-utilised western area could be facing the bulldozer soon.
Boot Hill Graveyard has been completely gotted, but members have noted that the themed elements were carefully transported off-site, indicating that there might be a new home for this attraction that dates back to Movie World's 1991 opening.
The fenced area extends as far as Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster's exit. With Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster closed for its annual maintenance from August 29 to September 18, 2016, there's a good chance that Movie World's new attraction opening will open during the September school holidays.
Of course in the past week, fencing has gone up around Boot Hill Graveyard and the surrounding western area.
This racist classic Bugs Bunny signage is a close as you'll get to the old Chinatown alley.
Movie World's own Chinese-themed area is of course off limits to guests, as it has been for several years.
These statues have been repurposed from the old Lethal Weapon area.
Chinese New Year is the focus at Movie World right now. Though perhaps not the most widely celebrated cultural event in Australia, this time of year sees a lot of Chinese tourists on the Gold Coast.
After the re-paint, Scream! is looking better than ever, and is now part of the Screampunk District.
