    Don’t usually comment on this, but -Red section is a hillside (practically on large rock wall) , also a main back road used very frequently -Both blue spot is the emergency evacuation doors for the Stunt Show/Junior School + Staff green room access -Purple is a very popular seating area and just received a makeover -Green is an emergency vehicle access road into the area -Yellow is the only real suitable location also note it maybe an unused area, just remember there is important infrastructure running under the ground (drains, wastage, power)

    Has this been posted? No? Good. The rocky rapids type slide at the end looks excellent. Worlds steepest water slide? And this

    There's a lot of people crowded around that construction site - would be great if they followed the trend for other theme parks and major tourist destinations and put up some faux-facades so it wasn't such an eyesore.

    Interesting that they’ve engaged a supplier who has gone and violated their contractor induction policy right from the get go... Hardly feel that’s a back of house photo approved by VRTP marketing dept

    Honestly i'm getting a little sick of LPS's position on this. Every other theme park needs a DA for construction and relocation of major installs. Why should they be exempt? The courts have ruled on the noise issues, so it should be a simple matter that any objection to the development on the basis of noise or lighting should be promptly disregarded provided the developer has submitted the relevant studies showing that no increase beyond that covered by the case law exists. There are other reasons to object, but likewise - the approving body should have as much regard to them as is relevant based on the previous decisions. As a large property developer, Brookfield should have the knowledge, the expertise, and the cash to go through the process that everyone else does.

    Having been to Manchester mate, I can surely attest to it being a densely populated and modern city. Not sure what being from Manchester signifies but I imagine it would be quite a different experience to having a childhood or growing up in Australia. Buts its a very nice city , I enjoyed its feel and atmosphere a lot.

    The company who did the Waterworks actually built three of them: Manly, Mount Druitt and Cairns. All three had the similar 4 enclosed slides and were built in 1980/81. Cairns in the 80’s didn’t have much for us kids to do and going to the Waterworks was the greatest. The best thing about these types of slides is that the water could be blocked at the top by a few people and their mats sitting side by side, creating a dam. Then when the water was high enough everyone would launch into the slide. You and ten mates and a torrent of water with arms and legs going everywhere. You could get pretty beat up, especially when you hit the ‘big’ corner on the fastest slide. The Cairns Waterworks closed in about 1988 to make way for an office tower but the slides themselves were relocated to Sugarworld, a small park in the Cairns suburbs next to a sugar mill. They lasted until 2010 when they were removed due to rusting steel supports. The fibreglass slides were offered for sale for $22 000. Unfortunately the slides at Sugarworld were replaced by modern but low capacity open air flumes and a four person racer. That was the great thing about the old slides, high capacity and a crap load of fun, not to mention barely enforced safety rules. The good old days I guess.

    Marvin's rocket constantly had problems. I don't recall ever seeing it operate, and it sat for a long time 'under maintenance' before it was quietly removed. Taz's cars - i'm not sure. It was taken out at around the same time as JDS was installed - perhaps given the similar ride experience, and the labour cost, it was easier to close it down. The Taz cars were also getting on in years, so probably coming to end of life, and cheaper to remove when JDS provides a similar experience. Taz's former site is now a parents room \ area, and its a great facility for parents with small children - and far better than their previous space. Whilst it may not appeal to everyone, its perfect for that age group, and should remain where it is - the facility won an award, and is a much better pit-stop for parents with infants than any park i've ever been to (although i've never seen a Disney parents room).

    As someone who went on Mystic Manor a few weeks ago. I can confirm the ride is just an amazing example of a dark ride. The projection mapping and sets do work well.

    The one major thing I hope DW do is the staff get special uniforms for this ride to really enhance the experience. If it’s just the standard uniform then that’s definitely a missed opportunity

    Have you seen videos of Mystic Manor, that’s a great example of what projection mapping can do when combined with physical props.

    In regards to what people have said about the choice of an airport theme, the airport theme could have worked if they put a bit more thought into it. Being in Main Street, Dreamworld, Queensland, I would've themed the 'terminal' by using the design of the 1940's-built (but 1930's-designed) administration building of Brisbane's Archerfield Airport, the main QLD airport in the 1930's, as inspiration. On the outside of the DW version though would be 1930's-styled advertisements (from a fictional airline called Dreamworld Airways) saying 'See Australia from the air!' etc with each advertisement having a different picture of an Australian landmark seen on the ride. The cylindrical part of the building would be on the corner of Main Street with the rest of the building 'being folded' so to head north and east respectively. Towering over the corner of Main Street would also be an air traffic control tower, inspired by the one which used to be on top of the Archerfield Airport administration building (1940's-built but 1930's-designed). It can also be seen in this photo, which gives an idea of how it would look in Main Street with people wandering around. You walk into the building, under the air traffic control tower, into a room which contains the queue line & access to a souvenir shop. The queue's theming would be inspired by the interior look of the Archerfield Airport administration building (again built in the 1940's but designed in the 1930's), which is rather plain. The staff members would have uniforms inspired by 1930's fashion. At the end of the queue, you are directed to your seat (which may require staircases to access). When you reach your seat, rather than seeing a blank screen, the first frame of the film is already shown - the runways and taxiways of an airport (The real 1940's-built/1930's-designed Archerfield Airport administration building literally is right next to the taxiway - and still is). The film opens with you lining up on a CGI runway and taking off. The flight then begins, with a change of locations occurring when you fly through clouds. The first set of clouds appearing a few seconds after take off transporting you to the Gold Coast skyline. After more Australian landmarks, the film concludes with the plane landing at Dreamworld (again, on a CGI runway) & parking outside the 'northern side' of the 'administration building' (though you can't see it when you actually hop off the ride as you are again facing the taxiways on the screen - it is the same thing you see when you hop on the ride). The 'adminstration building' briefly seen whilst taxiing after landing is CGI too. You then exit the ride (taking the staircases if needed. There are both entry & exit staircases to increase capacity) via the souvenir shop, which also contains tourist brochures for the landmarks featured in the ride.

    After doing some Instagram searching, it looks like The Bakery Design Co. is/could be the company that will be doing the project mapping/visual effects for the ride.
