    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    Would a detailed track inspection not be a regular annual maintenance task? (Serious question, I have no idea, but i would like to think it would be)

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    The reopening date hasn't changed though... based on the first dates posted at the beginning of this thread, so instead of a 3 month downtime, it's only 2 months. Meanwhile (again based on the starting dates shown at the beginning of the thread): Carousel has been extended by a week to 30 June Green Lantern has also shortened by 3 weeks moving back from 22 July to 12 August. Tweety cages were supposed to be down until 3 June, and that's been extended to 1 July Dodgems were 5-19 August and are now 3 June to 24 November I assume something in the current or recent maintenance has prompted a reshuffle, and they've probably put off some less critical tasks in AA and GL to shorten their maintenance periods. An original three month closure for Arkham seems excessive unless they had planned a big project like a repaint, or a full track inspection...

    MW sometimes do stupid things too. If the Winterfest engulfs the whole park like Frightnight does Winterfest should be great but if it's a rink in a corner and you get a 3min go the event will blow.

    I've also seen "Ice" Skating in Movie World - but they didn't use real ice... Just because you've seen something in a shopping centre, doesn't mean it can't belong in a theme park too. Especially with the way that Westfield is going these days.

    Dreamworld passes - Cheaper at the park.

    https://shop.dreamworld.com.au/Tickets/renew-annualpass-dec18 Renewal price is also available online, when it gets close to expiry you should receive an email. It actually has gone up (used to be $79).

    That's the word on the street but neither Greg nor Ardent have made any announcements yet Aaaand just as I post that, Greg goes and changes his Instragram. I guess it’s official now

    Parques Reunidos takeover bid

    It's odd how a company with such a large number of parks is worth so little.

    Beware of the Bawd Brothers

    I have just seen the show for the first time while the train has been out of action. What an embarrassment! To give the actors their fair credit, they've really done their best to recreate the show as best they can at Central Station and without the train, but seriously! Apart from the very obvious fact that there was no train to rob, the show was interrupted 5 times by the horrible noise of the Tower of Terror (which it's right next to). A great show when the train is running but they'd be much better off just not doing the show when it's not!
  15. In light of all the recent disappointments at Dreamworld, I was seriously considering NOT renewing my pass this year. Even the current promotion of adults at kids prices and 13 months rather than 12 wasn't quite convincing me. I thought I'd drop into Dreamworld today for what might be my last visit for a while. While here I asked how much to renew my pass, and it's $89. That's a fair bit cheaperthan the $109 I would have paid online (for adults at kids prices), and it still includes the extra month and the photo pass. So that's myDreamworld pass sorted for the next 13 months. Who knows, maybe by the time this one expires they might have even opened SkyVoyager. One can dream! 😊

    Wait, Greg has gone to Dreamworld? I knew he had left VRTP, but not where he had gone.

    2019 Construction at Outback Splash

    After Outback Splash’s post yesterday, I was keen to get up to the park and check things out. @Tim Dasco also managed to meet us for lunch and go exploring. Luckily for us, they had their slide bits littered all over the place, in plain sight. It’d been awhile since Tim had been there and he really noticed how faded the original water playground is. The park was really quiet, despite the beautiful weather.

    I think that’s a really positive sign if Greg Yong’s gone there. Surely, he’d be going there on the promise of having some capex to spend and would be keen to make his mark. Isn’t this what we’ve been saying all along - hire someone with theme park experience?

    I am 100% with Skeeta on this one. DW keep making announcements and promises and dont deliver. Lazy River....where is it? SV last Xmas........still waiting, how embarrassing what a joke. and many other examples. DW have real problems and need real solutions sooner rather than later. ......... not just a night event every couple of months or a couple of bits of ice for a month.

    Was a bit of a joke really TBH ...second half not so much though

    I really doubt he's had ANY influence on anything really in 2 weeks! That's just enough time to introduce himself to the team and get to know a little bit about how the business is. Nowhere near enough to introduce a new night event or anything like that! Give him a fair chance though.

    I mean you’ve had Greg now in there running the place for what? Two weeks?? And we already see a decent event announced. Given he was one of the major driving forces behind how much Fright Nights has grown, could this be the beginning of some solid night even offerings at Dreamworld?
  25. I think a wing coaster could be better than a flying coaster because it makes more of an immediate visual impression, whereas a flying coaster looks mostly like a suspended coaster. Probably too expensive as well, but something cool.

    2019 Construction at Outback Splash

    This from Outback Splash, today. I did visit before the waterpark it closed at the end of the school holidays, but there wasn’t too much to see. They were building a trench for the new gate area. They also had lots of pipes and had some rebar in for the foundation of the slides.
  27. @JobeThe only thing I agreed on with @Slick's list was his number 1 and I don't care about the rest. Your No 1. was different but you ruled out Slick's No.1 without knowing what it was. You nominated a game changing ride for DW without knowing what you ruled out or if the ride you were replacing it with was a world-class thrill ride. I found that funny and why I did the-

    Is it really a new found effort? I'm seeing the same old DW because everything I've seen so far DW has done before. Until Skeet sees something solid I will continue to be questioning DW's efforts. Promises and bottom shelf events. (besides Cosentino)😀
