    Dreamworld Update 5 August 2018

    The old IMAX seats were removed when it became the Cinema, replaced with more comfortable seats. Good question, this is Dreamworld though where any heritage value is seen as a bad thing.

    Either that or someone put one of those toilet cleaning blocks into the fountain..

    It would be much shorter to just post a list of positive things management have done for the park in the last 15 years...

    Buzzsaw (or is that Buzzkill?) used to have a somewhat elaborate queue, now all gone. The queue was the best thing about that ride imo. Billabong Restaurant used to have a theme inside, now it resembles a food court. Shows and entertainment used to be much better (who remembers the Wiz, Goldie the Clown, the Barbershop Quartet?)

    Dreamworks Trolls Village

    You do know @pushbutton that this video is a fan made video, and not an official Dreamworld released video right?

    So what is actually in the "fun house"?

    Nope it’s the seats at the front that are sunken in.
  9. Yes, the pony truck was replaced when it got to Woodford, but at the end of the day that’s general wear and tear, and it was safe for the running that occurred at the park, not safe for the type of operation at Woodford though. Regardless it was due for replacement and would have received it had they not been retired. The track condition may not be great right now, but track condition has deteriorated since the diesel entered service, A very different set of circumstances. I’m curious what you are referring to about the prohibited cast iron fitting? The attraction may come under an amusement device, but the boilers on the steam locos were certified and ticketed appropriately. Sorry for going slightly off topic, with the amount Of mud slinging happening, I’d hate to see more mud slung where it isn’t true,
  10. I’m not sure if you are serious or not. You of all people should know that the steam engines were in good condition when they were retired. Not only that but the engines were maintained by a dedicated crew devoted to those engines, and I very much doubt they would have signed off on them every day had they not felt they were safe, after all their lives were at risk.

    Is the reserved seating for the caged off area right at the front, or the front row of the stand though? If for the caged off area then that’s not awful.

    My latest Sea World trip

    Sadly its not just recently that VRTP has gone the "cheap and tacky" shopping centre route for their shows and entertainment, it's been getting worse and worse with every new "show" that pops along. Thanks for the review @AlexB. It has been a few years since we have visited Sea World, your review tells me nothing has changed. How sad.

    Calling some of the people "VIP's" is a bit of a stretch isn't it?

    Falling Standards at Our Parks

    Would you do the same today @pushbutton? If so that's a real dick of a move buddy.

    Current Sea World Thoughts (2018)

    The sad thing about Sea world (and village I guess now) is that they were parks that took pride in their shows and entertainment, the Sea World skiers, the seal show and the Dolphin show were top notch presentations that were worth the entry cost alone, now they are cheap contrived rubbish not even worth seeing. The same can be said for pretty much all the shows and entertainment at Movie World. What has changed? Can they no longer produce a decent live show? This was one of their key differences back in the day between Village and Dreamworld, now they are pretty much on par with entertainment, which is not good considering Village consider themselves the entertainment experts.
