    WNW - GC upgrade ideas

    I haven’t been to the Gold Coast yet. But does it normally become full during the peak (like what you said above)? Do they need more capacity (like longer or double decker buses or monorails or trams)?

    I know many want it to be a theme park. But technically its a marine park but with rides. Many tourists mainly for the Dolphins a polar bears etc. I know some people just go for the rides tho. This is just a personal view that's all.

    Leviathan Construction Updates

    I'm Glad that it's a new Roller Coaster for Sea World. Because Sea World, in recent years, did lack rides, with there closures of there Iconic rides. But with these 3 new rides coming soon, i'm safe to say that it's gonna be called a "Theme Park" again.

    Not only that, it runs every 10 mins between 9am and 11:30 am and between 3:30 and 5pm to deal with the crowds entering and leaving the parks.

    I can't wait to hear it racing around. A woodie has that unique sounds as it thunders around the track. Definitely looks like it'll be a decent coaster. Good to see so much progress on it. After all many cheques have been signed from different parties to make this one a reality.

    I heard maybe two years ago when the concept came out it could be a possibility. You can't get many "first: in the aquatic industry. Its one of those wait and see moments. But I think they would get a custom tantrum alley slide before a wheel slide.

    I never really thought they were genuine rumours, more just wishful thinking?

    Let's hope those Water wheel slide rumours come true then. Seems with the recent demolishment works they are planning on something big.

    You're welcome. I felt it was prudent because Parkz is not known for its members having multi-page discussions on semantics, and I wanted to ensure this thread didn't end up going that way. (Also clearly a sarcastic post, fyi.)

    Thanks for making it clear.
  13. In the world of automation, this ride was actually manually driven (apart from the initial swinging). A skilled operator could balance the boat in a particular way judge the speed and either make it creep over the top (causing drive direction change to occur as a lower than preferred angle) or manage to stop it at around the 11 o'clock position or 1 o'clock position allowing for a nice direction change and now major stress on running gear. stopping it in the inverted position was possible but not nothing they'd purposely want an operator to do.

    Please let me know what rides Dreamworld have retired within 4 years of opening... given it’s so common, that shouldn’t be a problem for you....

    We think that because DW had one that opened in 2015 and it closed in 2019

    I don’t know why people were thinking this ride would close A. These types of rides are common so there wouldn’t be a shortage of parts B. The ride opened in 2011 so it’s only been around for 9 years so it would be too soon for the ride to close I expect to close in the next 10 years or so if the area isn’t revamped in that timeframe

    Sure is
  25. Even with a vaccine (which currently doesn't exist, and is likely not to have anywhere near the level of uptake required to make it useful if one ever does exist), 28 days without community spread is unlikely to happen. The 28 day thing gets Anastasia to the election day. I have no doubts it will be softened further or removed completely once the election result is decided (regardless of who wins).

    I assume the Shaka Shack is a new retail store for the area
