  1. You know it must be good when I come out of the shadows to post... This is a cool little video a mate of mine found, very clever editing and ends up looking beautiful... http://vimeo.com/36874836
  2. If you think about it it actually makes a fair bit of sense... one would assume that it costs a certain amount to test, startup and run the park on any given day, and that this amount doesn't change hugely. If you open the park even 3hrs later than usual, that's almost half your daily income down the drain - lower attendance, lower consumption of food and beverages, fewer other purchases... while the costs to run the park haven't hugely decreased. While I'm not saying that I support it, from a business point of view it seems simple.
  3. You know Asia's not a country right? I think 3 theme parks in a region which houses over one fifth of the world's total population is more than ok actually!
  4. I think DJ might be accepting medals of honour and tending to singed hair at the moment... but I'm sure everyone will hear soon enough
  5. Conversation of the tours returning permanently aside, I think the fact that they've brought this tour in even temporarily is a good sign - it shows that they do actually look to run these tours and they certainly wouldn't have gone to the trouble of setting it up as an attraction if they weren't interested in doing so. To pick up one what some other people have - it's often just impossible to 'delay the bump out' of a set for any period of time. In every film, regardless of how much is custom built for the set, there are expensive rigging components, valuable real estate and often people r
  6. Ok just noticed this but it's majorly dodgy on the part of the Big Banana - So T-Bone mentioned the Space Race ride at BB by mentioning this PDF that is on the big banana web site - Now, look closely at the space ship in the pdf above. Then have a look at this image from the Virgin Galactic web site: Can anyone else see the world's most blatant copyright violation, not to mention possibly the worst Photoshopping job of all time?! Actually, I'm not going to even call this a Photoshop job, I'm going to call it an MS Paint job. Rich
  7. reanimated that just made me crack up.... that's gold!
  8. I spent last Saturday at Six Flags Great Adventure and the temperature didn't get above 5 degrees all day. It was freezing cold, miserable and Kingda Ka was bordering on ridiculously painful. If I wanted that experience, I would have got people to slap me in the face with bags of frozen peas while sitting in a supermarket freezer!
  9. I think the sooner Whitsy is banned the better....
  10. The simple answer is that all rants about park quality, prices of food, origin of bottled water and chemical composition of donuts aside, nothing at Movie World goes higher or faster than the rides at Dreamworld. If all you're after is big thrill rides, Dreamworld has more big ticket rides. That said, if all you are after is thrills, if you pick your day right, you can easily get around all of the big rides at both parks in one day. rich
  11. Miles above anything and everything else I've ever ridden.... Journey to the Centre of the Earth at Tokyo DisneySea. Built inside a mountain, amazing theming, a great story with tons of back history, good ride length and the most amazingly fast end to it all... brilliant!
  12. So presumably you're boycotting the whole Coles Myer Group because Myer are already out there, now Dick Smith? Following your logic you shouldn't be shopping at any Coles, Coles Express, Myer, Dick Smith, Target, Liquorland, Harris Technology, K-Mart, Officeworks or Bi-Lo right? Seems a little extreme lol rich
  13. Hey Nerdville Those are actually a bunch of very valid points the everyone should respect because it relfects the real situation at the moment. As much as some people won't accept it, we're seeing the standards of WVTP slip slowly but surely, so we now have to look at the competition as a 'best of the worst' - and when you compete at this low level, Dreamworld does have several advantages over the other parks. Things like long breakdowns, higher food prices and not opening rides until midday really do destroy the whole "better guest experience" argument that MW and SW had for years over
  14. Oh yeah, it totally reeks of homosexuality..... /sarcasm, and on behalf of the whole internet thanks for wasting those few kilobytes of space with that incredibly valuable contribution to the conversation. It's a shame they closed it when they could have just slapped a fresh paint on it and given it a more attractive dangerous name like its roller coaster neighbour.. the "Giant Squid Ski Show" or something like that would bring heaps more people through the doors I'm sure..! Apparently the new show is by the same producers who created the Pirates show at Treasure Island in Las Vegas. Unfortu
  15. The trains are incredibly safe.... I probably feel safer on Tokyo's trains than anywhere else in the world. If you have young kids it is worth noting that Tokyo central station (where the line to Myhama (sp?) begins) can be ridiculously busy - like busier than you have ever seen in your life. Depending on which line you are transferring from, the platform for the Disney trains can be a very very long walk - up to 15mins with no exaggeration - and I wouldn't want to do this walk with very young kids.
