  3. So I haven't said anything about the documentary until now cause I want to wait until the full story was aired. I've always taken a neutral stance on what caused the fire; I sort of wrote off the allegations of Abe Saffron's involvement as mere rumours. Even until I watched it, I was sceptical of this series cause from the promos, it looked very "tabloid" and "sensationalist". Having now finished the series, with all the evidence and witness accounts that was collected, I'm all but certain it was arson and that Abe Saffron plus others were responsible for essentially 7 cases of manslaughter in

  4. Hell, Seaworld announced they were getting gorillas and hippos before they even realised you couldn’t just buy them from the Special Buys section at Aldi...

  5. Quite an interesting document. I was particularly keen on reading about the conservation of the Art Barton artworks; quite a few need more more attendance than I thought. I'm reminded of what the late Martin Sharp said in "The Art of Fun" documentary; that Coney Island in particular needs a permanent curator to ensure the artefacts within are constantly maintained to high standard. Also pretty amusing how many of Art's paintings were coated over with varnish in the 70's leaving them yellowed; I know Peter Kingston and Martin were kicking themselves for doing that.

  7. The final episode just aired. I don't want to spoil anything but that was incredible. Give it a watch, even if you're not interested in Luna Park. There's also a live Q&A on the ABC News Instagram about the show which is on now

  8. You do realise this is a common thing to do right? Disney and universal have announced attractions years before anything happens. Sea World announced the New Atlantis back in 2019, well before construction began and they are still going

  9. The total estimated cost of the project (including land and infrastructure) for the island and all the elements that were not Disney was 18.1 Billion according to the HK GOVT brief for the project: (It's a looooog read and really dull) https://www.legco.gov.hk/yr99-00/english/hc/papers/brief.pdf Disney put in a small fraction of the total development cost for the area meaning that the HK Govt had little they could 'subsidise' the building with. (especially given most of the 18 Billion was borrowed money according to the brief) PERHAPS Universal Singapore managed to get some

  10. It seems you are expecting someone from Disney to jump on here and explain their financial decisions, operations and logistics to you in detail. People have answered your question with the knowledge, thoughts, ideas they have, yet to you keep countering that with "but why...." You're not going to get more than what you've been given.

  11. I just have a quick question, did the leviathan sculpture for creatures of the deep have pink fur? also here’s some pics of the coaster

  12. That would be great but also a strange idea, it's such a small ride. Luna Park does need more of those giant theming elements and ride bridges though because ever since reopening in 2004 most of them disappeared. I still don't understand why the giant wooden blocks from the kids rides and Spider's bridge didn't get moved to Maloney's corner. If they were there it would've made the area much more appealing.

  13. Hi guys, I thought that this document deserved its own topic- it has huge historical and current information contained in its weighty pages. Have a look at the list of contents that are contained within: There are some excellent historical maps of the site- dating back to the 1800's and showing the original shoreline before it was taken over by the Dorman Long Workshops. There is for the first time that I have ever seen a map of the famed Cliff face Tunnel that was used as an air raid shelter during WW II There are condition reports on items
