    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    That is how I read it but it is still not the best wording. Never thought of it like that but it could be what they meant though it still needs better wording. It could even be implying when maintenance is done, there will be "More Dreamworld happiness" but again, it is still not the best wording.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    In my opinion, that's not the best worded fence signage. 'Buzzsaw is currently under maintenance. More Dreamworld happiness is just around the corner'? If Buzzsaw under maintenance is their idea of 'Dreamworld happiness', I wouldn't want to pay for a ticket just around the corner either. 😋

    Lego Store Competition - Dreamworld vs Robina

    The only thing with that is that food is a need while Lego is a want. When I'm at Dreamworld, I need food during an all-day trip but I do not need Lego. If I want Lego, I can buy online later or go to my nearest store another day, especially if it is cheaper there and/or online. As much as I dislike seeing franchises in theme parks, if a food product is tasty & cheap, it will sell well and we all know theme park food is higher in price than most would like. If Domino's was cheaper & tastier than in-house food, it probably was a success. I'm not sure but is Domino's still in any of the Village Roadshow theme parks? True but both stores have things that you cannot do online. If Robina's store was just selling Lego products, you're right because of online shopping, it will make little difference but with those extra non-online features, where would their customer base go more to - Dreamworld's (for being larger and/or at a theme park) or their nearest store, which could be Robina?
  8. Alceon Group has today announced a new Lego Store will open in Robina with many of the features found at Dreamworld's Lego Store. However, Dreamworld's store will be about twice as large. Robina's store, at QIC Robina, is due to open by November. How does everyone think this will affect Dreamworld?

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Looking at those satellite images, it also confirms another part (Toboggan tower was demolished relatively quickly) of Blue Lagoon was demolished finally (though still sad as it was a wonderfully themed area compared to Whitewater World) - mainly some of the souvenir, food & beverage shops &/or amenities. (I can't remember which building had what).

    Most likely for the twisted reverse halfpipe as per the video.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Just so you know, DW has confirmed that coaster is still in place. Just wondering, why the hot air balloon?

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    The video is only an indicative render but I have this slight concern that the theming of that coaster could be shifting. It was themed to HotWheels in 2014. If the license was only 5 years, it will expire in November. At least the video confirms Dreamworld Express is unaffected & the Big Brother Studios area is barely used for the twisted reverse halfpipe. And it is highly likely now, in my opinion, that there will be no dark ride section though I hope the wider area is themed well. Rocks doesn't look enough so far. Here is an updated to-scale layout map: For some reason, there is a lot of space between the launch track & Buzzsaw compared to the video. Other than that, it is mostly accurate.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    I still think Blue Lagoon is unaffected. It does fit in the Thunder River Rapids' site though. Here is a to-scale layout map I've made: If it's wrong, it may need to be moved slightly towards the right and/or the twisted reverse halfpipe needs to be lengthened or redrawn. The show building seems to overlap the Dreamworld Express track/train shed regardless which may indicate not much theming or a lack of dark ride section. Does everyone think Dreamworld Express is unaffected? What does everyone think about how I drew the twisted reverse halfpipe? How accurate did I get it? Does anyone think it will head into the Big Brother Studios area? If is doesn't, well it seems they demolished it because the Big Brother House was burned down and they may have already made plans for it's demolition from their now cancelled plan for a new amphitheatre where this coaster is being built. This took me a while to get the Blue Fire layout in the position shown in the artist impressions with 100% accuracy so please don't criticize if it is slightly wrong.
  15. Not until the Coroner hands down his findings hopefully later this year but maybe not until next year and depending on his recommendations/findings, maybe that won't be enough.
