  1. Past hour
  2. New Kid on the block!

    See normally I'd be waiting for AlexB to respond with a sarcastic post about him not knowing what you're talking about given its actually called Ride Express now, but since he got it wrong I don't know what to expect.
  3. TopGolf & Hotel Construction

    Nice little video (what is with that dudes Mo...) i like that it can be semi competitive with points etc, that makes it interesting for sure food looks great too
  4. I was so disappointed when I last went on Scooby a year or 2 ago, and not just because it is now rough as guts. I told my buddy who had never been on it before about the cool Scooby song which blasts out in the big room, but it was so quiet it was almost inaudible. It really makes the experience when the music is pumping.
  5. New Kid on the block!

    SW and WnW are both achievable in a day, and I know many who have done this. Richard and Megan do seem to take a 'no nonsence, get in get done and get out' approach. those two together will be easy. I did think about AW and DW on the same day, but it is still definitely achievable. It is a 90 minute drive, but on a quiet day, AW would only take an hour or so to get through everything. This would give for example - 10am to 2:30pm at Dreamworld, 90 minute travel, followed by an hour at AW. 4.5 hours is a quick visit to DW, but still one with the ability to tick off all the majors you want to do if you're smart about it, plus if it is a super busy day, there's always Q4U...

    I was thinking the Geelong -> Melbourne -> Lakes Entrance day was... aspirational
  8. New Kid on the block!

    Everything else I’d say is achievable, but I’m not sure about the DW and Aussie World. It’s about an 90 - 120 minute drive between them (providing traffic is good). And DW is a massive park that you could spend all day at. Obviously dependant in queues and maintenance, but id say you’d only get until lunch time there before you’d have to leave. SW and WNW is also ambitious, unless you aren’t bothered about the shows at SW and just want to go on the rides and walk around the park, then you’d be able to.
  9. I forget when it exactly was but I think it was around July-August after winter school holidays, been on it about 3 to 4 times, no lasers, no smoke, no music, for some reason it was more common to have no music than no lasers was annoying and had you been on it more than once before it was very boring running that way, all you were entertained by was the sound of the fake screams of the cart further ahead of you, than do a fake scream yourself. The lasers in scooby should never be turned off!

    How are you going to do Aussie World and Dreamworld in the same day?
  11. Yesterday
  12. New Kid on the block!

    Yeah this is true. Looks like a good plan. Hope there are no hiccups like last time!
  13. New Kid on the block!

    Eh have you seen the type of travel I do? In all seriousness, my plan is: - Fri: Arrive (late) - Sat: Luna Park Sydney, Husky Carnival - Sun: Relocate to Longreach - Mon: Qantas Museum, Outback Dinner & Live Show - Tue: Stockman Museum, relocate to Surfers - Wed: Warner Bros (all day) - Thu: Aussie World, Dreamworld - Fri: Sea World, Wet'n'Wild, relocate to Melbourne. - Sat: Adventure Park Geelong, (optional) Luna Park Melbourne, Lakes Entrance Carnival - Sun: Gumbuya World, evening flight to Singapore. This is actually quite relaxed by my standards...
  14. New Kid on the block!

    all the coaster parks... in a week? That's like 9 parks!
  15. New Kid on the block!

    Yes, we're travelling together for a week. I have to be in Singapore on business immediately afterwards, and Australia isn't all that much further! The plan is to visit all the coaster parks except Perth – as well as two fairs and the Qantas museum in Longreach.
  16. TBH I cannot remember a time that the Lasers and Smoke FX WEREN'T working @bladex?? Gee, you must be pretty unlucky? Either that or a Shit Stirrer.. 😁
  17. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    Should be a great improvement then. Definitely going (at least once).
  18. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    But this year they’ve changed Carnivale and they are having the Aquacolour Lightsbkw in the SW lake. With colour, water and fire effects.
  19. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    I went to Carnivale last year (as well as Dreamworlds Fire Machine numerous times). Personally I thought Carnivale was better suited to Sea World than Movie World.
  20. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    If DW don’t do it this year, you may have to go to SW instead for Carnivale
  21. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    Wow! Shows how eager I am for something similar this year!
  22. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    Both shows haven’t begun until Boxing Day and have gone until mid January
  23. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    Ok. I thought it was built early December and the shows started about mid December. In that case, who knows. Maybe there will still be something awesome!
  24. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    Last year they didn’t start building it until around the 20th
  25. Movie World November 2017 Improvements

    I always do Arkham first, the load times on it are horrible and unlike the other coasters there is only the one train.
  26. Movie World November 2017 Improvements

    The order I generally do them is Rivals Arkahm Asylum Superman Green Lantern Batwing Justice Legaue Scooby-Doo Wild West Falls
  27. Movie World November 2017 Improvements

    Is that the order? I’m familiar with touring plans for Disney Parks but haven’t been to the Gold Coast Parks in the summer since the 90s.
