  3. I can't help but think they are going to have an amazing summer. The pent up demand must be huge AND the new offerings has that 'perfect storm' vibe about it. Looking forward to visiting in February.

  5. I’m surprised with that banner. I wonder if it’s temporary?

  6. The majority of injuries and deaths caused by rapids rides are the riders doing the wrong thing and falling out. The minority is people falling out because something was wrong with the ride or raft (tube inflation, water flow, too much weight, etc) Meanwhile the Dreamworld incident was purely a clusterfuck waiting to happen and it really seems like that was the only rapids ride in the world with the safety flaws to allow it to happen. Generally if you sit and stay put, you'll have no problems. You stand up and dick around, you're gonna have a bad time.

  8. Yeah, will do a quick little weekend trip down for sure. Depending on the cost of car rentals I'll probably do Jamberoo as well if Velocity Falls is ready.

  11. The fact DW (likely their insurance) is suing someone means they have chalked this one up to human error also. The human errored in not making the rides safety up to standard.

  13. It's essentially an out-of-control boat... Once it dispatches, it has a mind of its own (with only water and little obstructions beneath the surface to create the rapids feature somewhat controlling the raft) until it comes to a conveyor belt or something. Given I have never ridden a Rapids ride before, I'll have to make second thoughts whether I do essentially board one or not (I'll most likely board but we'll see).

  14. Well that settles it then RMC Raptor named Wonder Woman Flight of Courage, set to be the tallest and longest single rail coaster in the world and bringing MM to an astounding total of 20 coasters. Not guna lie, I think a ride like this would be a perfect replacement for AA One can dream!

  16. The lack of theming and bridges and facades for the new generation of rides is certainly disappointing. Here are a few pictures of scenes from Luna Park highlighting the absolutely brilliant theming that was created circa 1935. No wonder the older generation of visitors always remark on how Luna Park had charm and evoked such strong memories. Below is excellent examples of the Ghost Train facade. If this was built today we would all be marvelling at it!! This provides such an evokative atmosphere and strong impression of the ride before you have even entered the queue area.

  17. I come back after a day being away and there is currently a thread celebrating Sea World for once again delaying their $50 million dollar precinct and attractions as a good business decision, and another berating Luna Park Sydney for sticking to budget, schedule and concepts as bad business decisions. People told us not to get our expectation too high for something with 6 less rides and $20 million dollars more to work with? What did you except? Yeah it's not crash hot and could do better but I doubt anybody is going to get off Big Dipper and complain that it was a bad ride cause they ha

  18. Its probably largely out of their (the park) hands. Their insurance company has probably initiated proceedings to recoup money from the engineers public liability coverage.

  19. The point is that’s the fence. I don’t want to see some vinyl wrap that will fade/tear, etc on an awkwardly placed crappy fence. A simple timber fence would be much for fitting. Same for the bridge, why is it in raw gal? Looks temporary. It all looks crap, cheap and temporary, they can do better, and for little expense. Now if they rip all this out before opening and give it nice traditional seaside pier dressing then I’ll be the first one to say “great, nice simple touches and glad that stuff before was temporary”. But THIS, right now, looks crap. And I’m a li

  20. From reports the raft was under-inflated so the buoyancy was below prescribed. The tyre then was caught/flipped over on part of the rapids mechanisms.
