  2. The 11-minute interview can be found here. The interview expires on Saturday the 15th of February 2020 at 8:06pm. The official news article on the interview can be found here. After the interview, 7.30 did a 4-minute story, which @Gold Coast Amusement Force referenced. The story can be found here and will expire on Saturday the 15th of February 2020 at 8:41pm. Using 'Right To Information' documents obtained by 7.30, the story is about the QLD Government's Office Of Industrial Relations (particularly the Workplace Health & Safety Queensland branch of that office) in relation to theme park safety. The official news article on that story can be found here. In the official news article about the interview above, it does say: Dreamworld's acting CEO did release a statement though @Gold Coast Amusement Force (not sure if it's Ardent Leisure's official statement too). Leigh Sales said at the end of the 4-minute story: "The company's full statement" is below: Both the interview and the story can be found as part of the full 7.30 TV episode which can now be found on ABC iView (expiring on Saturday the 15th of September 2018 at 8pm) and features in the first 16 minutes of the 33 minute program. The episode is also repeated tonight at 12:30am on ABC News (The TV channel). Workplace Health & Safety Queensland also released a statement:

    They can’t remove a feature of the memberships that is part of the inclusive price without letting members know it’s happening.. if you read the FAQ section: And if you’d read the next paragraph after the one you copied and pasted... (even though it contradicts the previous..)
  5. i am pretty sure it mentioned a senior ride trainer released it from the station with the harnesses up. "It" probably had the roller coaster in maintenance mode, which blocks out most of the safety features.

    I just found this on the FN website after looking at tickets and clicking on a date + more info https://frightnights.com.au/event-info/event-dates
  7. Surely a roller coaster can’t be released from the station when none of the restraints are locked in place.. pretty sure that would be a standard feature on any/all rides with electronic restraints

    Seems there might be a technical issue, or members will be emailed a code. It will be best to contact the park directly and see what’s happening

    For those of us that still have the Unlimited memberships, can anyone answer if you still get 1 entry to FN included? I just visited the FN website and found a section 'redemptions' which seems to be the right place, until it asks you to enter a redemption code and the member numbers don't work. I have never received correspondence from VTP's that my Unlimited pass no longer includes Fright Nights, frankly this is the main reason why I have not switched over to the new Passes.

    USA Group Tour 2019 - Putting Feelers Out

    I'm happy to provide the parks however I need to chat with admin before I'm allowed to post any info regarding book or prices - but I can't do that til I'm sure on the prices - it's definitely more than the 2-3k someone has suggested above as its included Top Tier Front of Line passes where available, as well as a majority of meals and anything else I could include in advance - I'm a big believer in paying as much as you can before you go so all you need to worry about is spending money. Tour A Parks: Six Flags over Georgia, Lake Winnie, Dollywood & Splash Country, Carowinds 1.5 Days, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Kings Dominion, Six Flags America, HersheyPark, Knoebels, Lakemont, Idlewild & Kennywood Tour B Parks: Cedar Point 2 Days (Tour A+B participants 3 Days), Kings Island 2.5 Days, Kentucky Kingdom & Hurricane Bay, Holiday World & Splashin Safari, Six Flags St Louis, City Museum, Worlds of Fun, Silver Dollar City, Frontier City, Six Flags over Texas - optional extension to add Huston and San Antonio Parks to be discussed with group members after booking.
  15. I'm sure this will be a very balanced and in-depth report...

    Everyone remembers that queues normally close at 8/8.30 for a 9PM close instead of 10PM right?
  17. From the Australian Broadcasting Corporation: A 30 second preview of the interview can be found here. The 30 second preview of the interview expires on Friday the 14th of February 2020 at 2:35pm. From 7:30's social media:

    Ahhhh ok. I didn't think about noise regulations. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Fright Nights 2018

    Ride queues at all night events have always closed at hour or so prior to close time, if the park is open until 10pm you can’t close the queue at 10pm with still 60-90mins worth of queues for rides... the people are still on rides at 11, which doesn’t fly with noise regulations at MW

    2019 International Coaster Announcments

    I'm kinda concerned for Steel Curtain. Going with S&S as a manufacturer was a very unexpected move. The layout and supports are wacky as hell, never seen anything like it, and I'd be very interested to ride it, but I don't expect it'll be that nice to ride. It just doesn't have the quality of layout design and element shaping that we're used to seeing these days (at least based on that nolimits video they showed for the reveal). I'll be pleasantly surprised by S&S if they get it open on schedule.

    I've seen where it says rides until 9.30pm, with queues to close earlier to ensure ride stops on time.

    I did some googling on ‘House of Kain’ I couldn’t find anything about it, so I am assuming that it’s MWs own maze concept. Unless anyone recognised the name?

    Great to hear you were able to enjoy your visit! Rivals is certainly an awesome ride.

    So, House of Kain huh? Thoughts? (Also, it's kind of amazing that they let this slip.)
