    Well here's my update, and some new things we hadn't noticed yet. Along with the completed turn around point, new supports are going up, which appear will twist under and then back of the track. Some supports further down are installed, as well as some down the narrow run (around the lift hill area) and near the brake run. Very tightly twisted track has arrived. More stair pieces have arrived. And there are also some very thick columns.

    Thank you for giving me the chance to talk about the cooperation with VRTP! I really enjoyed creating the simulation and I hope you all enjoyed watching the trailer. And sorry for not giving you any updates on my simulation, but you may now understand why I was not able to do so.

    Here is what my updated simulation looks like. The first two screenshots show the recent status of construction. The last three screenshots show how the track will match the supports already in place.

    Your update for the 10th of June 2017. (and probably my largest so far) Comparison Photo 1 (Stengel/Inclined-Dive Loop): Non-Inverted Loop is becoming more and more visible with each passing week. Comparison Photo 2 (Non-Inverted Loop/Pretzel Helix): They positioned the construction vehicles in the worst possible places. So here's an alternate angle on the loop. Lift Hill: Green Lantern = Current Lift Hill Height Storage Lot: In-Park: In park shots will be so much easier once Lantern has reopened. Footbridge: Other Shots:

    I used my NoLimits "park" to recreat the exact track and footings that are already in place so i can give you differently angled views on what we have so far. I also added a the parts of the layout that are now obvious from track and footings. In my opinion the dive turn around is set as the following element. As the previous element still a vertical loop would fit perfectly with the foundations (not in the screenshots yet).

    Hi. I'm a newbie here but read Parkz quite regularly. I love puzzles so I un-jumbled the Dreamworld Billboard.

    Lift hill construction has begun. Tonnes of supports in the area, and workmen preparing footers around the area. All cranes are now in carpark, with no more pieces installed for the loop. EDIT: And here's a few more pictures

    I have absolutely no idea why Theme Park Girl, whose contributions I and I'm sure many others value greatly, has been attacked in this thread, including seemingly by members of the Parkz crew. It's just bizarre. Please don't stop contributing TPG! I also find it strange that there is an attempt to bring down and fault the user that created that great mock-up video of the coaster. It certainly gave a sense of the scale, regardless of whether individual elements were 100% correct. Are people envious about this or something? Thanks to everyone who is updating the thread regularly with pics. It's nice that barely a day goes by without new photos. This is going to be one well covered coaster, as it should be! Movie World might not be interested in marketing it, but it's certainly getting plenty of attention on Parkz.

    More pieces in place. These were from earlier today during the Parkchat viewers meet, so there may be a few familiar faces (or figures lol) in them. Sorry if there's any double ups from the last lot shared by @themagician, it's hard to keep track of what's been covered and what hasn't. But yeah. Enjoy guys πŸ‘ Still waiting for a support to be installed here lol: The brake run at the station: Looking amazing from a distance ❀️

    Yep going to add an excerpt and some photos you guys might enjoy. If you want to read the rest of my ramblings and swearing, you can go to that other place with the things.

    They were running two trains in the testing this afternoon, and as soon as one reached the brake run, the next one would leave. I recorded many videos, which I've added below. But here are a few photo updates first. Look at it in action A path is being laid leading from the main road and down along side the coaster Landscaping is complete and the carpark is slowly returning EDIT: Here are a couple of those videos of the ride in testing

    Everyone here knows i'm a huge Dreamworld fan, and this year I had the great fortune to spend a day with the man who built the park with his bare hands, John Longhurst. After our first meeting, I came away with a recorded conversation about Dreamworld's history that lasted over an hour and a half, and has been later transcribed into some 16,000 words of what I reckon is some honestly brilliant stories. It also goes a little bit into my own personal history with the park; suffice to say you'll start to understand why i'm so passionate about the place when you read through the article. You can find the first part in a series of stories here - John Longhurst's Dreamworld Stories - Origins - Part 1 I think the magic in this piece comes from simply reading through John's own words, so rather than spoiling the stories at such an early time i'll instead post the pictures that are seen on the jump. Comments and questions are totally welcome. Some of John's many books about Walt Disney. Mr. Day's Coomera property the day John Longhurst bought it. One of John's many books containing a series of incredible photos. Hollywood Cottage, now defunct. As former General Manager for Special Projects, Bob Tan, mentioned to me recently, "As for the cottage, it was very unfortunate. I recall a buyer wanted to take it away and re-erect it at his property on the Gold Coast, but the management of the day decided we disassemble it and store it for future use. It ended up consumed by termites." Dreamworld's Main Street was heavily inspired by Walt Disney World's Main Street of the same name.

    I believe they will be building cages around the tee mats incase someone lets go of their golf club. It will look something like this..

    Long time no see, guys. Hope everyone is well I too was on site at MW this morning for the placement of the final track piece, I did a live stream (or three) to my FB blog - it took about an hour or so due to wind delays. Anyway, I stuck around for a bit afterwards to grab some high quality piccies from a few other different perspectives and thought I would share them on here with you all, since today is certainly the day for it. Worker waiting patiently wayyyy up top of the lift hill staircase for the wind to die down, and the final track piece to be lifted up lol Now HERE'S a great way to get some decent view photos! Full view of the track from the rear of the carpark: GM Greg, Selena & the management team doing their live stream on site October is going to be quite the epic month! Can't wait

    Okay, so you guys really don't leave much to cover; but here are my two weekly comparison shots. (Photo's taken around 11am this morning) Now that the final segment of the Inclined Dive Loop has been completed, only the higher peaks of the ride will make this shot different. (I mean, obviously, though, right.)

    Airtime installed on Movie World's hypercoaster A newly installed twisting camel back hill is set to provide a stomach-churning moment of airtime beneath the towering Stengel Dive. Click here to continue reading

    The next pieces have been installed, dropping down over the track before the Stengel Dive. Also a number of new supports are scattered around the place, as well as some ready to be installed. A close up of those tightly twisted pieces

    It is going to be a great ride. The theme was originally supposed to be more GOT meets war craft and as with Abyss. I would have preferred something a bit dirtier/harder/solid, given the nature of the ride but that's just an opinion. Well done to Phillip and the incredibly talented team at Atomiq who of course themed the Claw ride at DW and Abyss and Kraken, Theme builders and James at Creative Works, and with the lap restraints will be a big hit this year hopefully. Fingers crossed for the team as I know they always work EXTREMELY hard on these things for each new season. Good luck and I hope it rocks! M.

    Grabbed a coffee and went to my car to leave - parked near the fence. Just as I was loading up, I hear a 2 second horn blast. Yep, they cycled Rivals! Got a video but it's just the same as others already in this thread. Guess the horn is to warn workers onsite. EDIT / 3rd cycle as I type!

    Look at the supports that have been installed. Smaller crane moving supports around, but no major work on the track. And GL seems to operate when the crane isn't in use

    Some shots from today guys. Lots of activity around the site, many parts prepped and ready to go.

    Your on-the-ground update for the week, Saturday the 3rd of June, 2017. Lit-up fence toppers! Preparatory work is underway on the pillars for the rest of the fence (section shown below is underneath Stengel Dive) - Not a great photo, but it was the most obvious of all of the pillars; and it's proof of progress on the fence Anyway, onto construction updates; work on the loop entry is progressing. and now for the two comparison shots; back to the dusk shots, next two weeks will be day-time (assuming I can still get to the park)

    WOW. I rode in the 4th row & all I can say is HOLY #%$! The Airtime, the speed, the first drop. Omg. This ride is WORLD CLASS!!! Here is my experience of the ride. - The lift hill is really fast & got me by surprise how fast it actually was - The first drop is amazing! Would definitely love to ride further back to see how intense it is in the back few rows - The first Airtime hill is awesome! Heaps of airtime (more than I was expecting) - The NIL is crazy & twisty. Also a good pop of airtime! - Stengel dive, probably one of the weakest parts of the ride but still good fun. - The Dive Turn was awesome, so intense! - S-Bend was super fast & the change of direction is awesome. (Similar to Jet Rescue) - The small airtime hill was good. Not a huge amount of airtime but still good! - Helix was super intense & you can definetly feel the G's!!! - The bunny hills got me by surprise, especially the first one!! I think the first bunny hill offers one of the most insane airtime moments I've ever experienced! Was going to go for a 2nd ride however the line was very long at this point & they were only running 1 train. This ride is absolutely incredible & is a great addition for Movieworld & Australia!! I honestly feel like this is one of the best roller coasters in the world. I'm not gonna say you have to ride this but ..YOU NEED TO RIDE THIS!!! To finish off here are a few photos I took on my phone.

    If the crane is being set up, that should mean any day now we'll see movie world's biggest erection getting head.

    Mid-week Update courtesy of an unplanned visit. [28-06-17] Storage Lot The smallest support in the lift hill area. (Literally the only reason I've included this photo - it's a cute little thing compared to the behemoth its underneath) Whatever these things are. (Yeah yeah.. I recognise that it's scaffolding.) Brake run catwalks. There are three new pieces in the lot (since my previous update) - however, due to the position of the sun I have no good photos of them. Station/Brake Run/Lift Hill Catwalk installation preparation Non-Inverted Loop The shot that you're going to see a lot throughout the rides lifetime. (Well, minus the fencing... and probably from a different angle... oh and maybe a visible train... but that's basically still the same, right?) More supports for the first airtime hill. Look to be fully assembled and will likely be slotted in place fully completed. Remember the thumbnail for that Parkz Update? Yeah, there's track there now. Swooping down into the loop is going to be amazing. This shot... I like this shot I also like this shot. I like this shot very much.

    At the park right now. Here ya go guys. Bit more progress on the loop. And more parts have arrived on site πŸ‘

    Slowly and carefully connecting the supports for the inverted loop.

    Here's my weekly photo contribution. Had to include this one because, I think, this is a great photo. I'll continue doing the two shots below until there is no more construction in-frame. I can't tell if these supports are going to be for lift hill or loop; maybe one of you can hazard a guess. I think the fact that we cover these new attractions so extensively really shows how much we love new attractions, maybe the parks should invest in them more often Below you can see the loop entrance (right) and exit (left) with the helix's and cool twisty-ness all around. Another "because I thought it looked cool" photo. Okay, maybe two... And this is the turn after the airtime hill. Lookin' real twisty.

    More supports installed, along with more track creating this banking turn. A couple of supports have been installed on parts of the coaster which has been installed yet, despite the track in place. Also noticed that even the highest point so far for the coaster is missing a support.

    Latest piccies ☺️ They're currently working down the end near the Topgolf compound. Also got to say a brief hello to one of the Mack officials who was standing nearby, and compliment them on their handiwork haha β˜ΊοΈπŸ‘
