  1. Good Morning everyone. And welcome to another exciting update of the construction. On Tuesday, I was looking from the Harbour Bridge on the train home, and I went. Oh goodie! A ride that will make me throw up! And that's the Sledgehammer... When I came back today, the poles that were there last week are now assembled. All that's left is the seats, and the loading platform. They've been replacing the boardwalk from Coney Island to Luna Land. This is in preparation for the new gate and sign. Which also looks a bit cartoony. That seems to be the coherent theme of this area. Because

  2. Hey everyone, so I just wanted to reply to this conversation I started, today I went to movie world. And the staff were sooooooooo friendly and helpful. At the entry I asked the lady from looking at me which rides did she think I wouldn't fit on. She was so friendly and explained where the harness fits on each ride. She gave me tips for Scooby doo and told me to ask for a harness check for Superman. So the verdict, I did what she and others said and I sat in the back row of Scooby doo, as I sat down I pulled the lap bar down so it clicked and then adjusted myself under it. It was tight b

  7. As I’ve already said, DC Rivals took 4 months, but that was a much more complex construction process. If there aren’t any delays, I can see track construction complete within 3 months. After that they’ve got to build the station/maintenance building, queue area, landscaping, pathways, theming and then also testing. In the renders/video we have seen all this rock work... what are the chances they will actually build all this I really hope they do, especially on the back of the SkyVoyager building so it isn’t just a white backdrop. And it will make the coaster even more

There will be no theme park that will be able to compete with us’: Movie World plans for a hotel Village Roadshow has reignited its plans for a hotel at Movie World, lodging a trademark application that reveals its likely branding for the nine-storey, 398-room landmark.

  9. I was never pumping self serve stations so am a bit lost on your comment here. The only reason I have not been here is out of sight and out of mind. I need to make more effort and I will. And it not a matter of why I am anywhere it’s convenient sometimes to be where I need to be. They are not a bunch of kids, they are good people trying to make a difference to their existence amongst other things. I don’t have any ambitions to be a god or have an ego that would warrant this. Face book is easy. I have reached out to Richard to have something here on a regular basis. But I will

  19. Yeah I do have a hell a lot of disposable income. I also have 3 kids, whom would like to experience something different. And my kids have been to Disney world and Disney land. So yeah would be good for them. I know they won't get the Disney input in our hotels as overseas, but imagine being a kid and waking up to a roller-coaster next to your window?! I know your a depressing dude, been here for years, but when something like this happens maybe to other people it will be a cool thing.

  23. Bumping up a topic here, but what I’m about to tell you all is very important. If you have never used them, I highly recommend. When you next visit Dreamworld, use the toilets in tiger island. They are the best theme park toilets on the Gold Coast. They are so so clean and the best themed toilets I’ve been to. Nearly every detail has been considered to make them fit the theme of tiger island. This precinct for me is still the best themed and well done area in any theme park on the Gold Coast. Areas like Castaway Bay, Villains precinct, Dreamworks and Nickelodeon are all great, b

  24. JDude95 the group in question are a great bunch of kids that have good fun and do the best they can, I don’t believe I get treated like god and not sure where you get this from. Nonetheless i don’t need any attention from anyone at this stage of my career. Connect and send me a DM on one of my social channels and I will meet with you so you can clearly see that my aspirations are not godly and I really don’t give a damn about what people think or how they treat me, be respectful and treat everyone fairly and be nice. You don’t have to have a million followers for me to comment on your platform

  27. Boomerang's track has just been completed with a few bits of catwalk left to install, and not much else work has been done on the site other than the coaster and the station platform. You can see the track peeking above Coney Island, I think it will be an excellent view when we get to ride it

  31. I think you HAVE to be looking at a water ride for the park. It’s in desperate need now and it has to he as far away in public opinion from the two home made rides they had, so go super modern. The two other things the park needs is weenies and restoration of theming to OCEAN parade. So I really feel they need a nice big splash boat ride, obviously with the theming tweaked for the Ocean Parade theme but Intamin makes an off the shelf model that not only fits but ticks the boxes. Plus the vertical lift is a nice gimmick.
