  1. Hey guys...this is GeorgeT from Germany again...I took part in the discussion when DC Rivals was being build. You know what? I am a little surprised that there are so little positive let alone raving reactions about the spinning car. As a regular visitor of Europa Park even after hundreds of rides on Blue Fire I still enjoy that coaster a lot. Even without a spinning feature. And yes, I know that it`s not everybodys cup of tea when a coaster car is spinning...but I really do think that riding Blue Fire in a spinning car will be one of the best coaster experinces on the planet for those who`re

MEDIA RELEASE: Tuesday 27 August 2019 _______________________________________________________________ AALARA refutes reports of ride safety concerns at the Royal Adelaide Show The Australian Amusement, Leisure and Recreation Association (AALARA) refutes recent media reports of safety concerns described by SafeWork SA surrounding four rides excluded from the Royal Adelaide Show, due to the lack of double locks on their safety harnesses.

  3. Fantastically detailed read, thanks again Parkz Peeps! I'm so glad all this is happening. There has been so much negative talk about DW on here for far too long, with most folk all but convinced the future of our beloved Aussie Park was all but destined for Suburbia. I hope you all enjoy eating those words as much as I feared em true, because this is the sweetest possible outcome that we never saw coming. Onward and upward😊

  5. @GeorgeT people are in shock. DW are getting a proper coaster after 20 years of disappointment so this might awhile to sink in. 🤣🤣🤣 PCL still believe Parkz is climbing trees and are waiting for a personal briefing from DW.

  6. Great article and a brilliant breakdown of what the new coaster will bring to the party. Seriously hyped now to ride this- I have not visited the GC since 2009 and this announcement and the Seaworld investment has me wanting to visit the parks with an excitement I have not felt in years. Excellent stuff and proud that OUR parks are getting talked about again on the World stage for positive reasons. Lets hope this level of investment will continue into the next decade and foreshadows a golden age for our amusement park industry!! Great coverage Parkz- looking forward to the construction up

  7. There is more to this than “needs a seatbelt”. Their legislation is stating that if the primary locking system fails the redundant locking system cannot allow the harness to open to any degree (say a few cms till the seat belt catches). So you need a fully redundant primary locking system, like say two hydraulic cylinders... given we have this on all our park rides I think it’s completely fair enough. Particularly when in these sorts of rides the harness is the only think keeping you in. If you look at Rivals say, it has 3 locking systems. Two hydraulic systems

  9. Parkz is really going out on a limb with this stuff isn't it? Fair point you know, no one has really said anything about the spinning car. I'll be keen to give it a go, no idea what it'll be like so curious about it. At the rate I'm going I'll probably end up doing spinning car before I do backwards Rivals.

  12. probably lost in translation, but my interpretation was that 1 spinning car would be at the back of each train

  13. Just on that the bloke from MACK needs to stop saying 'Free spinning'. We're also assuming that this ride gets them back to an attendance level where queues and capacity are a problem. I don't think it will. I think attendance will be noticeably up, but it alone won't get them to preaccident levels. Between that and the fact the spinning car has 4 seats, it should end up being a lot cheaper than backwards Rivals.

  14. I'm certain that they will install 6 individual staircases. Due to space limitations, one of the staircases will be built on the other side of the wavepool. In order to reach the new tower, guests will need to ride a zipline across the wavepool. Due to weight restrictions for the zipline, riders must be more than 72kgs, and less than 74kgs, and be wearing blue swimwear.

  15. Curious to see as to how much DreamWorld will be charging for this seat, or if they will charge at all.

  16. Scales are usually only required when there is a chance of valleying, or if the rafts are very weight limited. Many group raft slides have a weight limit (see Kamikaze for example) but they don't actually weigh you. Aqualoop can valley if there is insufficient weight, and I'm thinking the drop chutes might also require one if the drop panel has a limit (which makes sense). If Wedgie also has scales then that would be the reason.
