    Wonderpass

    Close about the price Bussy, but right about going 3 times to get your moneys worth. This leaflet was from Jan 2004.

    Employee of the Month/Year Awards

    The 2001 Xmas party certainly was the best, it was all down hill after that one. I remember it well, but can't for the life of me remember what the Entertainment department did that you guys are referring to?? I remember that Tech Services did the trenchcoat dance with "SMILES" on thier helmets, Food & Bev did a weak attempt at the chicken dance where it got so bad that the audience applauded someone who yelled out "Get off the stage!", Retail did the "My guy/God" and Sales & Marketing did a sketch where it had the marketing director in the original Actionman costume (the blue one) representing Wonderland and had other team members dressed to represent other tourist attractions(eg.Batman for Movie World), and Wonderland would beat all the opposition, the ending of which had a short appearance by Shrek. This Xmas party actually wasn't a "Red Faces" theme, people were just asked to perform an act. If I recall the "Red Faces" themed party was earlier that year in the Woolshed which had Joanne and Steven (from HR) and StephenG as the judges. The acts I remember were, an ABBA mime act by two ride operators(?), Sales & Marketing did the Wiggles "Wake up Jeff", Security did the hakka led by Tyron, and Retail did an excellent sketch about a day at Wonderland which ended with a little joke about certain managers smoking addictions/levels. One thing I remember about it was that Steven (who had just started in HR) made a crack about kiwis and the sheep being around the back, I don't think the knew at the time that the CEO sitting right next to him was from NZ!

    Bounty's Revenge Question

    Sheesh, they couldn't even come up with a new name for it! And I'm sure there would be a fair few people who could argue some of SG comments in that press release, especially the part about management and commitment. I'm surprised that they even got his name right, quite a few times people from KL would spell his name as "Gilbret" (just think of Galbraith spoken in a really strong maylasian accent )

    Great Balloon Race?

    The balloon ride was purchased by a construction company in Sydney as far as I know. If you can get a photo I'm sure there'd be a few people here who could verify if the ride you saw was the Wonderland one.

    Interesting Ebay item...

    Then I guess it was a good thing we didn't charge you for that door you kicked in! Anyway, I'd be shocked if this guys gets over $1000 for that lion as they surprisingly paid $250 for it. Also looking at those photos it looks like they cut off part of the base.

    How much would you've paid for it?

    Interesting Ebay item...

    HA! I was the one who actually sold that statue to them! They also bought some tombstones and the giant vulture that was at Galleons. I heard they almost decapticated either the lion or vulture when they loaded it on the back of truck and tried to drive through the Transylvania entrance. Just when you thought $unway were greedy for money, they paid alot less than $1000 for that lion.

    Demon Going to Visionland

    Flasher, DC is the persons initials as there's no real need to mention his full name. Anyway, the Visionland rep was talking to DC about working over in the US when he was here on a park visit last year to view the ride. I didn't know if DC accepted or not until now. I guess he did, good for him. By the way, the video on the Visionland website was cut from a demo video I had put together for them. The footage itself was already a few years old.

    Wonderland Gateway Signage

    Actually I didn't know that. That sign was still on site last December when I finished. I remember that the guy who purchased the other large sign (in front of ticket booths) was also interested in it, but not exactly sure what happened.
  10. The trilogy is now complete with The Space Probe. It runs approx 3min 33sec, 384kbit/s WMV, 8.02Mb in size. On par with my previous videos it includes facts, on-ride footage AND the 1995 "Space Probe 7:The Ride" TV commercial. You can download here Just scroll down to the Free download button, then scroll down again on the next page. There may be a countdown delay before download starts. For those creating Wonderland tribute websites, please feel free to use the link or even host the file yourself, as long as it is made available in it's entirety and unmodified in any way shape or form, and a credit mention would be nice. *** At this point in time I will kindly ask you not to write to me requesting higher resolution, unedited/clean footage, additional footage, images used, etc....... alot of time and effort went into not only producing this video but obtaining the footage, and such requests will be ignored at my discretion. *** Well, that's it for now. Enjoy!

    Space Probe Intruder

    It's amazing how after all this time they still call it "Space Probe 7" and "Australia's Wonderland".....

    My Demon Video Tribute

    The on-ride Bush Beast footage was on a old sales video. There was no specific date on it but it originally ended with a black and white Australia's Wonderland logo. I can only gather that they either wanted it in black and white or that's all they had at the time. ie. colours for logo not finalised. I guess we can only speculate. So why didn't you keep a copy of it? What exactly did you mix/change? I'm glad you're all enjoying the videos. With the footage I've got I'll probably only get to do a Space Probe video and that's it. To cap off the "tribute-trilogy" if you will.

    My Demon Video Tribute

    First came The Bush Beast, now it's time for The Demon! It runs at approx 4min 54s, 384kbit/s WMV, 11.7Mb in size. Apologies to those with dial up, I hope I made the video worth your time. Again I've included some facts, ride footage, on-ride footage AND the original 1992 "To Hell and Back" TV commercial. You can download here. Just scroll down to the Free download button, then scroll down again on the next page. There may be a countdown delay before download starts.

    zodiac painted purple?

    Ummm.... Sunway had next to nothing to do with the repainting of Zodiac. Sure there's the cost, but they wouldn't have wasted thier time for the little amount of money it would save them to leave out a few gondolas. For what it was (repainting), all would've been decided by Wonderland's people. As far as I know, Sunway had very little to do with changes like that to the park. Believe it or not some people didn't even know that we had a ride like Dragon's Flight until after the park had closed.

    Space Probe Removal

    I'm not arguing about anything that's been said, but that's probably the weirdest thing I've heard all week!
