  1. AlexB, nobody wants to read your essay on "The Misrepresentation of Dreamworld attractions in Theme Park Media". It's not that big of a deal.
  2. So excited to ride Shrubbie Carpet Python!
  3. Mate, if I was you I'd stop arguing. This isn't the U.K. and because most people here haven't been to Legoland or even the U.K. we aren't judging it based on that. Just like you haven't been to Aus, you can't really say that attitudes to line jumping are the same as the U.K. - the fact is, we know Dreamworld, and we know it's guests. The moment you stop defending Lo-Q from a bias perspective you may see what most here are trying to say: the system is unfair. When things aren't fair in Australia, people get pissed off. Bottom line. And they are well within their rights to do so. So how about yo
  4. Nice find Gazza. A couple of interesting things/concepts I noticed: - The name of the park 'WnW Aussie World' seems to differentiate from WnW GC. This I think matches the theme of your rustic Australian landscape - the gum trees, and the shed over the pool area are in line with this theme. Should go well with the Pub too. - Another strategy to do this would be the enclosed Tornado and Behemoth Bowl. It's certainly a different park to WWW and WnW GC - so hopefully it's interesting to go to and not a 'been there, done that' water park. Whereas WnW GC is a generic water park, WWW has a theme.
  5. tbh I think there is a hidden agenda to this ride. It's got quite a while until December 26, assuming that's the opening date. I think the theming will perhaps be more complex than the ride itself. It is Sea World.
  6. I am also an Indiana Jones club member. When I was there in 2004, those who have been on it know the part where the animatronic hangs from a rope and the boulder narrowly dodges the car. This is sort of the climax moment of the ride. We got to the bit, and the boulder decided to fall but the car didn't move, and the animatronic just hung there blinking for like 3 minutes. I vaguely remember us thinking 'What the hell is going on'... it was pretty scary considering how dark it is in there.
  7. I'd love a picture of the pavement. I heard the bitumen is really black these days.
  8. The only thing that will be staying will be the Ettamogah Pub.
  9. Heard this on the news and had to jump online. Australia's first B&M? This is too cool.
  10. Gazza, the thing I love about your designs is that they recognise the 'story' of the ride is such an essential part of the overall theme. This is shown through the queue lines - which are all themed - and the preshows which I'm sure would be amazing. Your latest idea is great, especially with all the new motion simulator technology around these days, I think this ride would work well. It also encapsulates the movie theme well, which unfortunately as of late has seemed to die down in Movie World. Just on another note, is this concept similar to that of Test Track at Disney World? I've heard a
  11. Why are you telling us to search for information if you can't even get it yourself? I'll believe it when I see it.
  12. Oh, that's rich coming from you.
  13. Hahahaha. That is so true. Ha, I laughed so much. :S Slightly off topic, is the half price Dreamworld annual pass still available?
  14. Yes, the new QLD State Premier, Anna Bligh, has said that they've succeeded in making water restrictions viable within homes and it's time for businesses to do their fair share. I would not be suprised if Dreamworld has already started cutting down their water usage and if they have, I would be sure the water under the Wipeout would be part of the scheme.
  15. Faulty trains? At Dreamworld? How preposterous!
  16. Buddy, unless your guests have super powers like the DC Heroes allowing them to walk on water, that area can't be built. It's a lake. It's also extremely close to the studios which would probably affect sounds when shooting.
  17. If he is, it's funny that even a prep is noticing the problem that Dreamworld has *lol*.
  18. No, I'm not saying they have announced a new B&M or anything, I am trying to say with the amount that WVTP is willing to spend on attractions, and increased revenue from the park (which we have already seen the start of this latest financial year) I'm sure others would agree with me when I say Movie World will likely have Australia's first B&M coaster.

    Which one?

    I rest my case. Reviews are biased a lot of the time. The fact is you can't really make an accurate judgment on which is better unless you have played them all to your lifestyle, yourself.
  20. Could not agree more. If Movie World decide to produce another Superman Escape every couple of years, there is no doubt it could get ahead of its competitor. They have the space; they have the money and they are willing to spend it, so why not? I think the fact is for most of us here, the future of Movie World looks much more prosperous than the future of Dreamworld. People aren't expecting Dreamworld to whip out some amazing thrill ride. People know Movie World will have Australia's first Bolliger and Mabilliard. It's only a matter of time before people are sick of Dreamworld and start to g
  21. I like the idea of the Sun Wheel concept, it would be a great alternative to Sea World's offering. I have also been on the Sun Wheel at DCA and found it a lot of fun - scary - but a lot of fun. However, I also think the Dreamworld logo is a stupid idea. It wouldn't help advertising because people will know Dreamworld is there anyway. It's like advertising Coca-Cola in the Coca-Cola Factory. Plus, it would make the whole ride seem overly generic. The whole point of Paradise Pier (before Toy Story came along) was to bring across some typical Californian-lifestyle themed rides; hence Mulholland
  22. I think you would find those drips were caused by the pipes of Terror Canyon above, not the mountain (which I believe from memory was made of a foam mesh). The problem with the mountain may have been that it was aging, it had started to grow moss in some areas and guests had ripped it off in some sections. It basically left a bad impression as the park had been severely updated and that didn't fit in with the new look. At least, this is what I presumed. Ultimately, it still is a mountain... the mountain represents the big hill which was a man made hill when the slides were first constructed.
