  1. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    If that is the case then it took till today for it to update. Cut them some slack. Now showing as open everyday 1100-1600.

    Or maybe, just maybe the website hasn't been updated yet?
  3. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    What I don't quite get is the website say they are new cars, but they look the same as they did before, just refreshed, and have had the brass mountings painted over. Your right though, some signage and a koala exhibit doesn't quite equate an adventure, but hey hopefully there's something there that the video doesn't show...

    I love it, should just keep it like that. It resembles a better time at the park despite the jumbled nature, the Baldwin, Paddle Boat and even the logo all evoke warm and funny feelings inside of me, unlike the current bland and corporate logo currently in use...
  5. Blue Lagoon at dreamworld?

    Used to be but hasn't had anything there for a very long time.
  6. Blue Lagoon at dreamworld?

    It is all still there, and still decaying away. Even the roof in the quick service shop that was in that location seems to have some roof trouble. I'm glad they put the fence up as it was pretty poor show (i'm surprised it took so long really) but it would be even better if they dozed the area and actually used it for something, even if they dozed it and planted some trees would be better.

    I've had it confirmed off site that the train hold up did infact occur down near the Bush Ranger show area. I do agree, I think the spot from Rocky Hollow to Main Street would be a perfect spot for a bit of a show, it doesn't have to be a full on show, just some actors that hold the train up, provide a bit of a show and as said provide a unique experience. All would be very cheap to implement, but as we can tell from the old days where such a show would occur if done right would create a lifetime of memories.

    That's ok @MickeyD sadly the railway has always been one of those "always there, always forgotten" attractions in the scheme of things in terms of management and the general public, so it's completely understandable. The sad thing is the locomotive celebrated it's 100 year anniversary/ birthday in March this year which is defiantly worth shouting from the rooftops, and its a story the park could have turned into positive exposure. Instead not even a social media post was given. @Brad2912, it hasn't run since October last year. I won't divulge why it hasn't run, but it's not because the engine is unsafe, broken or "an old girl". The Baldwin requires very little work to get it out on the track again, just will power. But as said it is defiantly something they can bring out now, for very little expenditure that will help plus the park experience and guest satisfaction ratings. Sure only run it say on the weekends and peak periods, just run it and commit to it! I have a feeling the hold up was held roughly between what is now Billabong Station and AWE station (Billabong station in those days didn't exist) but I can't confirm. Paging @WorldFun, he may be able to provide some more info. You would be surprised the amount of people who are attracted to an old steam locomotive running, sure those same people may not be thrill ride junkies, but steam gets people excited. My wife and I have just had a baby and have let our DW passes expire because why bother when you have a newborn? Well if the park brings out the Baldwin again, we will renew our passes and get down there, it is something that both my wife and I enjoy riding behind, and we aren't the only people in that camp either.
  9. New Dreamworld jingle

    Has anyone seen this ad on the television? It does seem light on which does suggest it's just a web promo video and not a big marketing push...

    I agree with you Mickey. That said and done though, I am a bit disheartened to see whilst they are spending on making the place an experience again, there is no movement at all on returning the Baldwin steam loco to service. Surely a genuine 100+ year old loco (which is in fine operation condition mind you) would be of better use running out on the track than sitting in the shed? Getting It out is something they can do today and would only improve the guest satisfaction for very minimal cost.
  11. Tiger Island Refurbishment - Dreamworld 2016

    But you could always and already do this in The Lair! I know, I proposed to my wife infront of Nika in the Lair caverns..
  12. Tiger Island Refurbishment - Dreamworld 2016

    I was there today, and whilst the outside facade looks average we need to remember it is still a work in progress. That said and done I did get a peep into the actual display area, and it does look rather nice inside with lots of rockwork and stuff, so let's not judge before all is done and dusted.
  13. New Dreamworld Patisserie & Grill "coming soon"

    Inside looks acceptable, a cafe but nothing special. I don't want to put the park down so it's not a criticism, but it isn't a highly themed experience. What I really dislike is that shade mesh screen on front of the toilet block and a mish mash of facades, I mean lego modern panelling building, green shade mesh with Besser blocks easily seen behind, followed by the old barnhouse facade, it's rather messy.

    Yeah looking back to just after Andrewh did his thing, there is a new piece of framework around the access door to the mountain. Taken 20/04/2015
