    Dreamworld December Update 2019

    It's a pleasant area to sit and relax, but I don't think this is the most suitable addition for a theme park. It's fairly generic and reminds me more of Pacific Fair or Westfield Chermside than any theme park. Personally, I don't think theme parks should be striving to be compared to a Westfield. A theme park should be its own being; something unique and unlike other offerings. The "Shaded Seating Area" just doesn't do it for me. Also, there's some shade but not enough to satisfy my pale needs. I think this was a flawed idea from the beginning.

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    I imagine there is no replacement period. Theres probably a measurement for wear and stretch, and if its ok, you keep using it. Wouldnt be surprised if theres like 100k in cost of chain that size/length. Youd want to get more than a year or two out of it.

    I think this is more what they were going for, along with the new “Roarsome” wall on the way into Tiger Island.

    Even if it isn’t popular for sitting, it will be very popular on Instagram and maybe that’s exactly what they were going for. There aren’t really many ‘insta walls/areas’ at any of our parks, so this area fills that ‘massive’ void.

    As "Shaded seating” If I remember as according to MR CEO it really doesn't delivery. The umbrellas won’t do shit. On my phone, it looks like synthetic grass and if that’s the case kids will not sit on the grass in summer. It wouldn’t surprise me if an unaware parent places an infant on the grass without realising how hot it gets. I had fake grass near my pool at my last house and you had to wear shoes to get to the pool. It lasted about a week before I got it removed.

    For what that space is, they’ve themed/decorated it very nicely and I would say it will be quite a nice area to sit on a cooler or cloudy day. I definitely think it could use more larger shaded areas because on a hot summers day, people won’t sit in half those seats. Once those trees grow out a bit it should be a lot better, but that will take a while. Hopefully they also add some misters/fans in too EDIT: Turns out there is quite a bit of shade, it just hasn’t been shown in these photos. Photo posted by Remember the Golden Years

    The chain has been replaced twice since that incident. Chains aren't exactly the most expensive in terms of maintenance costs though.

    It’s open and they took the hammocks.

    They also shared this one, which I take as the new area being open. As much as I hate to say it though, I am noticing a serious lack of shade in the shaded seating area...

    Seems like the area might be open

    I would say it’s opened or is opening very soon! judging by this post on Instagram.

    Northam Aquatic Centre

    Fully four is nearing completion https://www.facebook.com/northamrecreationcentre/photos/?ref=page_internal For the record: So the red slide turned out like the rendering (albeit teal coloured now) The rest were different as you'd expect. It's hard to see but on the lowest level is a white coloured slide that literally just turns and drops in the middle of the teal helix

    It failed back in January 2017, but no idea of the lifespan of the chain. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4108046/Dozens-stuck-Arkham-Asylum-roller-coaster-Movie-World-Gold-Coast.html

    The original concept said to remove the shade structure from old Troll Village and relocate to new site so maybe this is yet to be completed.

    Arkham has its 25th birthday on Boxing Day 2020. If MW are to close it, being proactive is always better than reactive and can give good lead time for its closure, allowing last rides. I don't think it will close for another 3-5 years though seeing as it looks to be pretty well maintained, although, anyone know when the lift hill chain needs to be replaced next?

    Fully6 - WhiteWater World's new slide tower

    I have to say, the area looks really nice, but how many people will it actually accommodate? I can see 20 or so deck chairs, a couple of hammocks and i assume some picnic style table seats will probably go in some of the covered areas... Wipeout would probably have cycled the same number of people in one ride cycle as will fit here, but the seating and such will make them linger longer. I do hope they have a plan to maintain the deck chairs and hammocks and other soft furnishings, and it isn't replaced with cheap plastic stacking chairs (like outside Flowrider). I'm not a big dreamworld fan, and I do find myself being very critical - I want to love this little space they've done (even though I don't agree with the usage - it should have gotten a new flat) - but with Aussie parks, i'm always looking at how something will stand the test of time, because all of our parks have shown that the new flashy ride gets the love and the old stuff gets neglected...
