    Happy Halloween 2020

    To be fair, many theme parks have carnival games, heck even Dreamworld has in the past, and so does Village. I don’t see a problem, and I’d be ok if more permanent setups came from this.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    The closure date of the Bus Stop matches the Buzzsaw's closure period on the Dreamworld website.

    Happy Halloween 2020

    Looks like a fun event, great to see someone took my idea I posted a while back about using the Sky Voyager building as a projection screen...

    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    But someone said this was the case a few weeks ago, so that wasn’t true?

    Joz is right, there were some silly decisions that occured post TRR, however if mistakes have been learnt from the past, then maybe they should be given the benefit of the doubt? This project has commenced under the guidance of the new management structure, the new management structure that felt the brunt of those previous mistakes. I’m sure they are keen to not repeat those mistakes.

    And you know that the ride wasn’t checked over before proceeding with work? That’s a very big assumption especially considering this change over/ retheme has been in the works for over 12 months now (IP application for the name Gold Coaster was submitted in September 2019). Steel Coasters aren’t immune from track issues such as steel fatigue, one only has to look at Jet Rescue for a recent example. It’s not uncommon for many steel coasters to get touch ups here and there throughout its life. It’s when those become larger problems that we need to be concerned.

    Dreamworld October 2020 Visit

    So of the train is on the map for Happy Halloween and listed as attraction number 1, does that mean it will be operating for the event?
  9. There is a nice disko coaster up at Coomera they can have.

    I’m not referring to your jokes guys, more the general comments and consensus of those on here who criticise the roughness of this coaster.

    If your back breaks or is really affected by Cyclone, then perhaps you should reconsider whether it is a good idea riding. Just saying...

    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    This also looks pretty awesome (attached pics) IMO modern architecture has no place In a theme park. Theme parks are supposed to transport you away from the world you live in, modern architecture such as what we see here (and there are plenty of other examples in our parks) doesn’t do that and only cheapens the whole experience. So whilst Vortex looks neat and tidy, it doesn’t take me anywhere other than my local Westfield. It worries me that this is the standard for the rest of the new Atlantis, but we will see what happens.
  13. So I got talking with some friends about what the theme park and amusement industry would be like if Thunder River Rapids didn’t happen, and I wanted to ask the wider community for a hypothetical discussion. What would Dreamworld be like right now had the accident had not occured? What would the other less directly impacted operators be like, such as Aussie world, Luna Parks, Funfields etc. Second hypothetical, what do you think the industry would be like if Green Lantern’s incident killed people? Sure GL would have been a manfufacturer fault, but in the eyes of the public, it was still Movie Worlds ride.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Surely someone wouldn’t do that these days considering what happened when Eureka was Andrewh’d..
