  2. Well if that's what Liz considers rude she'd better stay away from this forum. It gets a whole lot more rude than that!

    Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster refurb

    You know what would've fixed this ride? Having a projects team again.

    Sounds to me like MW’s marketing team is largely to blame for the below average reviews - I reckon if they hadn’t overhyped this with the whole “next generation” marketing the reviews would be more positive.

    It's a ride that millions of people have already been on, there's no need to be butt-hurt about a few extra projection screens, especially when it's marked as spoilers.

    Don't you think that spoils the experience for people who haven't yet been on?

    Bloody gorgeous TVC and super well produced but it sounds like the ride itself doesn't hold a candle to it which is a real shame.
  9. I have not been rude to anyone except for one person who was extremely rude to me!

    https://player.vimeo.com/video/306340365 The new commercial for SDSC Disapointing that this is probably not near to what everyone was expecting.

    From the sound of it, there seems to be a lot of projection happening (and happening rather poorly as well) and not a whole lot of mapping. Disappointing especially after the hard sell of the upgrade. I know you say "hey they could have kept it closed but chose to open it for the crowds", yes but far out, they easily could have left it another week or week and a half to get it right, especially if they are pushing it so hard about how "next generation" it really is. In cases like this, by opening it early when it clearly isn't ready (which I hope is the case) you get awful reviews and piss your customers off, even more than if you left it closed for another week to get the experience just right.

    Also just noticed that the kids riding are dressed as Velma, Shaggy, Fred and Daphne. A nice touch from the marketing team 😜.

    No, there were no lasers (they weren't turned on at least, could be added later), no pink fog, and the only monsters in the ride are the ones in the projection mapped section, and the original animatronic that hung from the ceiling.

    You can't sell more fast track passes if you don't have queues for your rides!

    So we’ve all seen the promo shot with the pink fog, heaps of lasers and the monster. Are these things in the ride?

    He indeed is still there, just not illuminated or vocal. There is another Scooby in the same state on your left as you enter the final room.

    Yes, Scooby is definitely in the suit of armour, although the section is not particularly well lit, so it's understandable to see why people may have not believed it to be there. I believe there is also a new voice prompt as you go past him, although it's been a while since I've last ridden. All in all, I was pretty disappointed with the ride. Maybe I went in with high expectations, but even putting the mis-timed theming elements aside, I thought that the animations were quite poor, and the Disco Room was lacklustre. It just feels really dated. The new lighting in the Wild Mouse portion was a cool addition I thought, but it felt empty without the lasers, and was unnecessarily well lit. The whole experience was just a bit 'meh'.
  18. @Jamberoo Fan the footage is a mixture of Scenic Railway scenes ( at the station) and then definitely interspersed with footage from Melbourne’s Big Dipper , which ran the length of the park and sat adjacent to the Scenic Railway on the far end. The River Caves we’re situated at one end of the Dipper, under the far turn. The Melbourne Big Dipper and the Sydney Big Dipper we’re identical in layout.

    this photo is from ParkChat, is this not Scooby Doo’s hand in the suit of armour. So maybe he is still there?

    For 80 dollars? How would you go about telling them to sell you the pass for a discounted rate because you’re a previous season pass holder.
  21. Yeah, you can. I was literally there 3 hours ago.

    Mate, you can’t get a special pass renewal deal at Westfield.

    I think they definitely have bugs to work out. Both times I went on it today you could see miscues of events. I’m sure they will tweak it over time.

    For people who have ridden it now... Has this refurb made the ride better (before theming was removed) or worse? Im glad they’ve mostly replaced what was there and tried to improve on it with screens. But the fact there is no more Scooby at all, and the videos are poor quality, make this ride come across something that was budget, when in reality this ride was world class. Hopefully they’ve had some issues (much like they did with WWF effects when it reopened, but really they should not be having these issues. If the ride isn’t ready, don’t open it until it is), and the these lighting and screen visual issues are resolved soon
  25. I will say your comment to Liz was a tad rude Push, you ain’t no angel yourself now. Let me apologise for Push @liz.wis, he’s the town drunk. Seeing this building come closer and closer to completion, it really just looks like they pulled the facade design straight from what was planned for the south bank Brisbane attraction before it fell into the oblivion. It would fit right in at Southbank..
