    What's gone wrong with SkyVoyager?

    This looks to be at the train station no?

    Someone is coming to Dreamworld

    Matt Hollywood? May as well watch paint dry, its more magic than him. This is Ardents version of "capital light", and good on them if it works this time, but nothing beats having rides open in a theme park, or heck new rides and attractions to experience, something Ardent have forgotten.

    Fun fact, Tony Laffan was also a fixture of Dreamworld in the early years.

    Dreamworld Maintenance 2019

    The train is fucked, putting it lightly. The sad thing is the Baldwin steam locomotive which is also sitting in the shed can run tomorrow if there was enough will to get it going. if the train does close, never to reopen, well there goes an attraction that everybody can ride and enjoy. Ontop of that, with no train there is no longer any transport attractions within the park. Yeah ok not every theme park needs transport rides, movie world survives without one, but Movie World is not as spread out and is a lot more flat when compared to dreamworld. If Dreamworld management want someone to run the steam train for them, give me a call
  5. Can we get them for false advertising with the incredible looking disco room in that video?

    Aussie World themeing

    HWSW's train is stuck ...

    It’s now part of WhiteWater Worlds theming, because Dreamworld are too scared to operate it.. Something funky must have gone on for it to have gotten stuck there!

    Quick February Dreamworld video update

    Honestly it’s no wonder the park is dead, they haven’t done anything since TRR to bring the guests back. Sure a lot of have returned to support the park, but that support wears thin when it’s clear Ardent don’t give a rats. It is incredibly sad to see the park as it is right now, and Ardent only have themselves to blame. Here’s what they need to do in my mind to help pull themselves out of this hole they have dug for themselves (ardent you are free to use any of these ideas Royalty Free). Open Skyvoyager pronto, and explain why the delay has occurred, get out there and really sell the experience. Tell the public what your plans are for the old Goldrush sure, be upfront about what’s going on in the park right now, and be as graphic as possible. Spend a bit of money and get an artist to draw up some plans. Commit to building a kick arse Rollercoaster, something Dreamworld has been lacking since Superman Escape came to town. People love and miss the old Dreamworld, so bring back the little and cheap but important experiences like the steam train, barbershop quartet, but hey how about you go full hog here and do a little Dreamworld history museum, they would have enough stuff in their archives to show some stuff off in a small room, or heck a big room like the old brock museum. Last but not least, they should be doing everything they can to keep attractions open. The train closure is a stupid one, because the attraction is closed for the first 5 months of the year due to the tractor being a pos, the park should be doing everything they can to keep it running, get the Baldwin back in steam, or worst case use the simplex diesel. The train is an important attraction for the park, yet also an easy one to run and problem solve, if they can’t keep it running then there is no hope. For the park to survive any further, they need to stop playing the “feel sorry for us” game and actually give people a reason to visit. People aren’t visiting because the Dreamworld today isn’t any better than what Dreamworld was like in 2016, infact with all the ride closures it is a much worse park right now than just before TRR.
  11. It used to be that the claw always had a short seat belt, but the drop was longer. If the claw and drop now have even shorter seatbelts, where does that leave TOT and Supermans seatbelt? Have they been changed to the shorter length?

    Dreamworld reduces operating hours

    Sorry Evie but the tractor is the issue this time. The train is not closed because of the track being an issue. Yes the track has issues but it is “fine”.. Glad you agree though that the tractor is pile of junk!

    Let’s also not forget there is no reason for anyone to enter that building. The brock cars are gone, and the cyclone is closed. With the recent closures and cut backs it makes sense to close that shop and the car racing game.

    Holy poop, well the tractor is certainly dead hey judging by that. Time for tractor reef, and maybe Dreamworld should focus on getting the steam train running again, or even the little Diesel engine they have so they can provide something to the guests. What a fail!
