  1. For @T-bone, @red dragin and anyone else into Dreamworld Railway. I took this photo of Perry on Feb 22, 2005, back when it was still a Steam Locomotive,

  2. I don’t think the argument is so much if it’s a good addition or well themed, but rather in a bad location. It could easily be an outdoor attraction, instead a perfectly good soundstage goes wasted for a great dark ride.

  5. I’m with Push on this one... JSD is very well themed for a kids car ride. Anyone saying otherwise is because they are downplaying it as it isn’t a ride for their demographic or because they are overly critical as it replaced LTRR..

  6. Well themed? You are soooo funny Push! JDS is one of those attractions that could easily be picked up and moved elsewhere. It using up the ride building is a big waste of space. IMO, when LT closed I was hoping if we didn’t get a new dark ride that we would see the ride building converted into an indoor LT land, air conditioned, weather proof, and could have been fantastic if it was done right. I still hold out for hope.

  7. It's typical for the B grade Celebes (which those two are) to be much more diva like than the A list. Youd be amazed the places Geoffrey Rush ended up on the coast when pirates was filming. Total low key guy.

  8. HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA. Sorry... give me a minute. Ok, i'm good... now.... You want to feed Asian tourists our Australian version of "asian food" ? The idea is laughable at best. Just like when I went to the USA and the locals suggested I just MUST go to Outback Steakhouse for a 'taste of home'. Ridiculous. (to be clear, i'm not lampooning the idea of asian flavours in the parks, just the concept that it would draw asian tourists... and as for a noodle bar....?) Theme Parks are about rides, shows, attractions. Restaurant dining, whilst certa

  9. I completely agree, and I'm hopeful that Village now shares this vision. Judging by the comments in this interview, it would seem likely they do. The increased pass pricing will help provide the funds to build these. I've been to Alton Towers and Disneyland, so I know what a really good theme park (as opposed to fun park) is like! Thrills do sell, and all good theme parks need thrilling experiences. However that's just one part of the package. A great theme park has much more than just thrill rides. Thrills can also be a part of more comprehensive rides. Also rides

  10. I've been meaning to compliment Parkz since the earlier scoops from the DW CEO, but WELL DONE RICHARD AND TEAM! The professionalism of Parkz has no doubt led to these big bosses feeling comfortable sitting down and talking to you. The accuracy and insight of Parkz' journalism in relation to the theme park industry in this country far, far exceeds any mainstream media outlet, as we all know. And on this particular article, I am rather thrilled that Clark Kirby appears to be, from all indications so far, the CEO we were all hoping for for Village Roadshow Theme Parks. Everything he said was

  12. Thing is, many of what we would see as 'chinese' food wouldn't be regarded as chinese food by Chinese people - for example - Chow Mein, or Mini Spring Rolls, although derived from Chinese food have little resemblance to the traditional chinese dish from which it originated... Shit wait - did you have it at Alton Towers? Thanks for the backseat moderation. It was so desperately needed in the absence of a mod - especially since a mod hasn't visited this thread in ages.
