  1. Occasionally I'll search through tender websites for theme park projects and yesterday's search at work had delivered some treasure. Here is what is worth noting: This is what the queue line and station looks like. It would appear they are going with a snake skeleton shade structure. Exit Path. There will be 2 tunnels. This is the modern entrance sign is going next to Sky Voyager in Main Street. They will be cutting and filling a sizeable amount of the coaster's site. As a result there will be a large, imposing retaining wall on the G

  2. I thought I'd start a seperate forum for Leviathan specific construction updates, so that we can easily follow the coaster in one place. This was my first time seeing the vertical construction progress, so I took my big camera lens to the park to get some close up shot of the construction Overview: Close ups: Despite the coaster not yet reaching it max height, it can already be seen for a lot of different points across the park

  5. Hi Alex, I understand your frustration. I can tell you one thing that we have zero control over what this site does or how they carry out their buisness. Richard I believe is the man, he is very strong in his views and that’s why I respect him and engage him when I can. Okay so a lot of people reached out to me, I had zero issue with anything being said here, the reason why I am here is to answer questions that people may have if I can without compromising myself. Hi There, unfortunately do I care no, but if someone does make deliberate and ridiculous statements then I will ac

  8. I was out for a drive yesterday and stumbled across more of the Taipan. Got the drone out and did a quick video, nothing exciting, first video I've ever uploaded so go easy lol. It's an industrial yard out the back of Yatala.

  9. I don't think any attempt is being made to make it immersive. It's some rides with decorations. You can't do an immersive themed land in the location they're trying to do it, because most of the view is of the back of the Island with the ugly ass shed and the main entrance. Trying to do immersive there won't work, and I don't think they're even trying from what I've seen. I mean the fence around the Ski Lake looks like it came from a really nice busstop at Westfield, but there's nothing 'Atlantis' about it. It's one of the reasons I advocated for a Pier theme years ago, because no matter what

  10. Here’s the view of the The Gold Coaster from WhiteWater World yesterday. It appears that repainting has basically been completed with only some small areas that still require a repaint. Also I think that the queue line is also being repainted to match the new colour scheme judging from this shot.

  11. So a child, who refuses to speak to professionals or any family about the incident, will only be able to move on with her life once she receives monetary compensation? what a load of rubbish. i am not for one second arguing that this girl doesn’t deserve compensation for losing her mother, she absolutely does, but she is a child and no money is going to bring back her mum or help her process what happened. her family should be less focused on campaigning for her to get cash, and focus on her mental well being - if it’s true she has been internalising the events of the day for 4

  13. Annual passholders received a 208 day extension to their pass expiry Rides retired are officially announced instead of being SBNO for 8-9 months without word from the park (and Flowrider was a low throughput attraction to be taking up prime real estate in OP) 3 major attractions won't be operating on opening - Sidewinder (painting), Buzz (coaster construction) and train (botched entirely). No other huge swaths of 'down for annual maintenance' like we saw with Movieworld, so the suggestion that they were getting maintenance done in their extended closure seems to be accurate

  17. The other thing which I haven’t brought up to this point is to spare a thought for staff. Financial matters aside a lot of people draw a great deal of self worth and purpose from being able to go to work. I know a lot of people across a great number of industries that have had mental health issues with being stood down for so long and lacking purpose. If the parks being open mean people can get back to work and that helps their mental wellbeing then I’m all for that. And I’d go to far as to say for me that’s more important than the disappointment of some people that they can’t rid

  18. Alex, this particular ad is getting phenomenal traction and yes people will always have their point of view and preference. We felt putting Clark in front of the camera was appropriate and in the current environment hits the right tone. There is a lot of speculation in your post, to be clear Marketing for VRTP and communication is my responsibility and I take tremendous pride in everything we put out, not always one gets it right but our intent is good, your comment about "Clark fronting the media and not Bikash" is a decision that we make internally on which topic is more appropriate and for

  19. Hi there, I am AheadMatthewawsome. I have signed up here as I have noticed a little conversation about me back in 2017. I just want to say, this is a great example of people who become understanding about somebody who is a little bit different. There are not very many community's/people like that around here. I know that from personal experience. Being cyberbullied left, right, and center, with no end in sight. It makes all of you one in a million! Back in 2017, I did not know that the WildCat was not being made nowadays, and other stuff about placing in the rides. I was only 11 at t

  23. In the DC Rivals construction thread, people were demanding new photos often and it was very bad form. People are not going to go to SW just to get pics for this thread. Be patient, and then happy when new photos are uploaded by a generous member of the forum. With DCR, it was easy to get pics on people's commutes as we were spoiled. There isn't the same opportunity with Leviathan.

  24. Just to clarify what this award actually is... It is NOT an architectural award. It is NOT a design award. It is a 'construction award'. It was NOT won by Dreamworld. It was won by Alder Constructions. It is NOT national. It is given by Master Builders Queensland. It is NOT state-wide. It was only for the Gold Coast. The very specific category that it won was 'Tourism and Leisure facilities (on the GC) up to $10M.' In 2019 this category had no winner because it had no entries for the GC region. In 2018 it was won for the Woodroffe Hote

  27. I'm close to a year late with this, but on Christmas Eve and Boxing day last year I visited Tokyo Disneysea, which has probably been the #1 park I've wanted to visit. I had a great, albeit very long day from opening till close, and then back again on the 3rd day at Disney to get on rides I had missed. https://www.parkz.com.au/parks/JP/Urayasu/Tokyo_Disneysea/ The park gets exceptionally busy. We arrived at 7am, an hour prior to opening and the entry plaza was already full. It really is important to get in early so you can get a fastpass and a first ride with a shorter wait. Bec

  30. I remember seeing this article in the paper when i was just 10 years old and reading it with fascination and wonder. Of course the plans did not eventuate but I do remember that the coaster plans were by Arrow Huss. I just wanted to share this with all of you as this article has been in my brain for 30 + years and to finally see a digital copy is great. Given that there was fierce resident opposition even then this did not progress beyond pre planning stages but it certainly does present a huge "Oh what might have been" moment. The link to the article is HERE

  35. They should replace the log ride with another well themed log ride. The park needs family rides and it desperately needs water attractions. doesn’t need a thrill gimmick but certainly needs a good family pleaser

  36. Is your wife in the habit of licking rollercoaster supports? Because if not, this shouldn't affect her. I get being cautious mate, especially with such a vulnerable person in your household. But shops are still open (including Lego) and people are still visiting them, whilst taking precautions. At the start of all this, people weren't taking it seriously and it was scary to go anywhere because disgusting people were germing all over the place. On sunday I had to go to bunnings for an essential item. They had several rows of carparks cordoned off. markings on the ground indicating spa

  38. Absolutely not. People have been made redundant, attraction pipelines have been delayed for three of the country's biggest parks and there's still been massive revenue issues given the lack of international & interstate tourism. To say anything else is just trying to make a causation from correlation, which is the equivalent of suggesting that vaccines cause autism.
