  1. Today
  2. Not until the Coroner hands down his findings hopefully later this year but maybe not until next year and depending on his recommendations/findings, maybe that won't be enough.
  3. I'll plonk this here as it covers everything and it adds to the article but here is a full edited transcript of the investor presentation:

    Thunder River Rapids Incident Coronial Inquest

    Dreamworld has it's best day in years yesterday with it's suite of high-profile ride investment announcements and now reality returns... The Courier-Mail has published an article and an editorial (links below), which are both subscriber-only. Article: EXCLUSIVE: Funding shortfall families' anguish at coroner court logjam - PLEA FOR TRUTH Editorial: Editor's view: Time to address our coronial crisis From what I can gather without subscribing, here is the key point: There is a funding shortfall which is causing delays in the QLD Coroner's Court and despite DW hoping the findings to be handed down by years end, The Courier-Mail think it will be next year. The victims' families (...and The Courier-Mail) are thus understandably losing patience. Just found this quote from the investor presentation transcript I found and posted in another topic:

    Ahhh, those were the days...though I daresay I was lucky not to come away with some neck damage after slamming into a group blocking up the slide to build pressure more than once! I get the feeling there were a few operators at that particular park (the long gone Willows Water World, for any of you that may know it) that weren't too fond of a few of us unruly teenagers! Lol

    Looks like the slide complex at Big Banana Coffs Harbour.

    It’s meant to be @Skeeta? I didn’t know you were turbulence in your spare time

    I think it is meant to be @Skeeta

    I think Push has finally lost the plot. The new slide announcement is the filler slide tower that WWW has needed and i'm so glad its here. Finally slides I won't need to use a tube for. Just because they are basic, doesn't mean they are bad.

    Turbulence????

    I agree about the jolts here. Maybe unnecessary though, but also thought they were part of the ride experience.

    I was happy to ignore the jolts but people I rode with and other people on the ride with me had mentioned that the random jerking seemed a bit weird.

    Polin is very popular in Australia at the moment. They’re also building the tower at Outback Splash.

    Push: Why do people keep complaining that I say stupid things? Also Push: Constantly posts stupid comments, continuing the beat the horse that was already dead and buried and has now completely decayed.

    I think people may be overplaying it’s flaws. Sure I haven’t been on Soarin’, it may be a pile of crap compared to that, but the vast majority won’t have been on this type of ride before, so have no comparison and know no better. It will be extremely well received. I didn’t realised the jolts were imperfections in the ride mechanic, I thought they were intentional as they seemed to occur in scenes that justified that kind of motion. Think most of the public will feel similarly

    Starting to sound more and more like a not so cheap Asian knockoff.

    It's a very neat addition for Dreamworld. If you go in knowing it's a cheaper soarin, then it's a wonderful ride. There are moments where the gondola is very shakey and jerky. The excess wind being blown in does cause the screen to blow around a bit sometimes and the smaller, awkward screen size is very apparent in certain seats. But overall, I did really enjoy it and can see myself re-riding it many times in the future. I could go a lot deeper into it but I'd rather let everyone else experience it for themselves and form their own opinions of what they like and don't like about the ride.

    Depends. If it's wooden seating rather than plastic, I think it needs some varnish very soon after it's installed. You're right though, not just yet.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Dreamworld mentioned it in the comments of a Facebook post. They also said they’re currently in the first stages of pre-construction and they’re releasing a video of the Coaster rendering in the coming days, which means we may get some details such as the name/theme and a rough opening date estimate (although I feel like they’d be hesitant after SV)

    Come on man......this is meant to be a positive occasion for Dreamworld. It doesnt need to be tarnished just yet.
  21. Great review as always from the writers at Parkz!! Having ridden Soarin" at Epcot in 2017, I am certainly interested to see how this ride stacks up to it. This article certainly answers that question quite well, but the proof will be in the actual riding. Soarin' was a major highlight of our entire Orlando trip ( one of many!!) and this ride will have to be extremely good to be even mentioned in the same breath as Soarin'. The queue and pre-show sounds entirely frustrating though- why cant our parks get this right? The template in Disney and even Universal is right there- and whilst it would be churlish to expect that high a standard - surely we can get a decent facsimile that just works and doesnt' feel "clunky". Certainly looking forward to riding this in January 2020- I think that being such a unique ride and Australian first, that this will be a sure fire hit for Dreamworld. With today's announcement's of investment in a new coaster and expansion at White Water World, perhaps Dreamworld can finally step out of the long shadow of the TRR tragedy . Today is certainly a good day to be a Dreamworld fanboy and I am sure that Village is sitting up and taking notice-which will be a good thing for the GC and the industry. Given the already large investment of DC Rivals and the previously announced Seaworld Atlantis expansion, we can all hope that this is another major step into further investment and expansion for the industry and the parks on a scale the likes of which havent been seen since the early to mid 90's. Bring it on!!

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Where does it mention that?
  23. That's good to know, was dissapointed when I seen the yellow as it matches to closey to The Hotwheels Sidewinder. Wonder what it's going to be?
  24. Sky Voyager is now open at Dreamworld... so what's it like? Following eight months of delays, Sky Voyager opened today with little fanfare as guests got their first taste of Dreamworld's largest ride investment in two decades. Click here to continue reading

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Not sure if it's been mentioned anywhere, however the cart and track are certainly not staying the colour in the render.

    My first visit to the park in probably 4 months or so - well whenever Consentino was on, passes expire end of Sept so just got in before they expired thankfully.
