  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. Here’s a look at what’s left in the car park Anyone know what this part is for? Station update Do you think they’ll build a retaining wall along here for the train track? Because I’d imagine they would have removed it if they weren’t going to use it Track updates

  8. Also, I’ve been accepted as a rides attendant tonight for Luna Park! Training starts soon! Ever since I started playing RCT3 and watching Theme Park Review on youtube 13 years ago, I never imagined it would be this real! Dreams do come true guys haha!!

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. Hey everyone, so I just wanted to reply to this conversation I started, today I went to movie world. And the staff were sooooooooo friendly and helpful. At the entry I asked the lady from looking at me which rides did she think I wouldn't fit on. She was so friendly and explained where the harness fits on each ride. She gave me tips for Scooby doo and told me to ask for a harness check for Superman. So the verdict, I did what she and others said and I sat in the back row of Scooby doo, as I sat down I pulled the lap bar down so it clicked and then adjusted myself under it. It was tight b

  17. 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

  20. Good Morning everyone. And welcome to another exciting update of the construction. On Tuesday, I was looking from the Harbour Bridge on the train home, and I went. Oh goodie! A ride that will make me throw up! And that's the Sledgehammer... When I came back today, the poles that were there last week are now assembled. All that's left is the seats, and the loading platform. They've been replacing the boardwalk from Coney Island to Luna Land. This is in preparation for the new gate and sign. Which also looks a bit cartoony. That seems to be the coherent theme of this area. Because

  23. 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

  33. 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.

  34. 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
