  2. This has been a thing since basically forever. From my point of view, once something has been announced broadly to staff then it's fair game. If you really care about stuff not getting out, you don't release it to hundreds of people. Mostly, we don't do the NDA chest thumping here once it's at that point. I 100% guarantee you that once front line staff know, competitors know. There's no point acting like it's some big commercial secret. The other thing is that the people who know, mostly dont need to impress everyone with what they know. I would guarantee you that there are heaps o

  7. Not mine but agreed for a train reveal (?) it's pretty cool - really dig those kind of shots where they've gone to the effort of lighting small details (like the spinning wheel) which all add up. It'll be a shame if those eyes don't light up though - I kind of half expected them to at the end there. As I said before though, given my longstanding history with the park (and its ruinous fan-pages which trade mate's private conversations for influence) it'd be in bad taste to be openly critical at this point. That being said, there's a lot to like in this latest clip, so kudos to Dreamworld (and w

  11. As far as I know this ride had very low ridership. I can't remember it ever being much more than a walk on a year or two after opening. It's a cool gimmick the whole "hanging by your harness 50m in the air" the first couple of rides but then it sort of wears off and you realise it's a bit unpleasant overall and not a coaster you get off feeling all elated. Layout is too basic. Guess visitors felt the same way. Will keep a lookout for the ride on FB marketplace.

  12. The smaller rock archway after the MCBR is looking almost completed and crews are now working on the main rock tunnel. Station work continuing and electrical work on MCBR is happening too. More pathways have been poured, particularly towards the ride exit. Source: https://www.instagram.com/p/CR70l3xMea0/?utm_medium=copy_link

  19. That's exactly what I mean. The fun is in the speculation, but coming on here and saying "My dad's ex-wife's dog's previous-owner's pizza man who once drove to Movie World says that the replacement will definitely feature the letter 'E' in the title" is kind of annoying? I'm just not a huge fan of the charades that comes from telling people you know something but not saying what you know. If its meant to be a secret then keep it as such.

  21. I agree 100% here. Something does not quite add up. If the ride is the absolute maintenance nightmare that it is purported to be then it should not be advertised as being in perfect working condition. Interestingly, there were 10 models of this type installed around the world with all still being in operation. The last one was installed in China in 2015. The earliest and prototype is still operating in Germany at Skyline Park. All of this does not speak of a ride type that is a maintenance nightmare. Methinks that this could be Dreamworld's spin factory giving a major reason for its demise fro

  22. What a flop of a ride. Through and through disaster. A shit ride bought from a 3rd tier manufacturer (maybe 2nd tier if you want to be generous) that was purchased because it was the cheapest option for a ride. Ran into the ground for its entire life and eventually aged into a shithouse bone shaker. Frequently in and out of closure for about half of its time at DW and outlived by a coaster three times its age. Not to mention, it ran for only 9 years before Ardent gave up, an embarrassment considering literal prototype coasters have operated for twice as long before closing. This is w

  24. ...Just for the record for anyone keen to exercise around LPS - the new restrictions say you cannot exercise more than 10km from where you live, OR outside of your own LGA. So just to help folks out who might not be sure - here is 10km from LPS: And here is the North Sydney Council LGA - noting that (unsurprisingly) it does not extend south of the Harbour Bridge. With a new record breaking 44 cases announced today and the increasing of restrictions - please - we do not need likes and views and coaster updates right now. It will still be there in a few

  25. On rollercoasters a block zone is a section of ride that only one train may occupy at a time. At the end of a block zone there is a method to stop the train, in case the block zone ahead is still occupied. This is the safety system that prevents rollercoaster trains from colliding with one another. Hope this helps.

  26. It wasn't too bad. It's a good level of detail for the general guest, to build interest in the ride. And it's more than was ever done for DC Rivals, and I'm interested to see what comes in the next video.

  27. I think that’s overly harsh. It’s not a marvel of production, but it’s good for what it’s meant to be, which is part of an marketing campaign to promote the ride. If anything it’s designed for the joe public, not the Parkz crew, as most here would know what goes into the procurement process, whereas others may not have given it thought. I’d rather a BTS doco style campaign than just putting out rehashed marketing collateral that says or does nothing.

  28. Dreamworld have posted a great video, part 1 of a 5 part series on Steel Taipan. https://fb.watch/v/1jUNzbgBs/ Production quality is mint, much better than anything they have produced in years. It’s great to see them embracing the ride rather than ignoring it.

  29. I think they’ve done a great job with the event, but for me the parade was underwhelming. There are some great floats and great to see so many characters, but because it’s meant to be a celebration event, it didn’t feel like there was much happening. All the characters go up and down Main Street and wave. There wasn’t any dancing, fancy lighting, massive change in music, confetti, etc. I think they should’ve made the parade at 5 or 5:30, because it’s dark by that time and then they could’ve done awesome lighting things. Maybe even someone on a mic announcing who/what is coming next (like how

  32. It's not even optics, it's that the park is really thread bare right now; they kind of need the filler. I assume it's one of those things where it's end of life, costs a ton to maintain, isn't popular and is closed a fair chunk of the time. I'm not surprised (or even sad) it's going, but I'd have thought string it out for a yeah and close it when you add a new flat ride or something cheap just to keep the park feeling full in the meantime.

  38. I'll have to disagree here. There's a good amount of effort that's been put into the theming on Storm. The junk cars, vans and boats really do mix well with the story. Don't forget that the theming in the ride station really helps with atmosphere. It's better than most of the Dulux Jacuzzi blue that they painted the Vortex area with, to me at least.

  41. 1 paid artist to oversee up to 10 volunteer students - sounds like slave labour for the students. If it were a charity event i'd be all for volunteers but as its for a paid event by a for-profit company, i find that despicable - even if they are getting valuable experience, it should still be paid work.

  42. Its kind of like this. The train is overlaunched slightly because it starts coasting on the flat and losing speed before it even gets to the overbank. Next launch has to be enough to get it to the top of the spike but since most of the train on the spike is below the overbank level, it would still be slower, i would estimate 70 or 80. Final launch gets it to 105 in the bank of LSMs, would coast and lose speed to 100 before entering the overbank and then the rest of the layout is on spec.
