    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?

    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.

    Is this guy who gets wet perhaps a plant actor? What’s the context of the weapon of mass wettness?

    Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster refurb in Nov/Dec 2017

    John Cox workedon the original movie, so them listing the ride is not surprising as some of the props from that film were reused on the ride.

    I believe they used to have 3 monorail trains, if that’s correct, the 3rd was probably scrapped to keep the others running.

    Oh dear, seems like Village are attending Ardent Leisure's "How to run a theme park" seminars...

    @AlexB, I do also remember seeing an update showing the carriages in the tunnel under the seal show, but have looked through all the updates and couldn't find anything. Operation of the train may have been sparodic before Jet Rescue came along, but I can't seem to find any evidence. @joz, do you recall?

    I think 2008 is more like it, Parkz database suggests it closed for Jet Rescue construction, which would have been sometime in 2008 when it started, and indeed I have found a photo where a dirt path has been made over the rail line to accommodate the construction. Here is that photo. https://www.parkz.com.au/photo/2564-July_23rd_2008/gallery/sort/oldest/location/ride-433/offset/8 I have also found a photo with a 2006 date stamped on it with the train operating, so i'd suggest 2008 is probably when it closed. Also found mention of it closing in 2008 on an unrelated forum.

    Strip the themeing and you have a basic and boring mad mouse coaster with a weird slow section of track. The themeing is what helps make that ride something great and is what has helped the ride become a “legend” as such. Mention Movie World to anyone that doesn’t regularly visit the parks, and they will probably recall the Scooby ride and Superman. The ride is in an extremely poor state right now, and for a park that calls itself Hollywood on the Gold Coast, it’s certainly lacking anything that makes it memorable.

    The Off Topic Topic

    Was this a Dreamworld event, or a case where a business has hired the park for the event, and Dreamworld is just the location?

    Gold Rush demolition at Dreamworld

    They may have said they have no plans for the area, but remember when Rivals or any other coaster on the coast has being built, the official line from the parks is "coaster? What coaster"? so don't read too much into what they publicly put out there. There would be plans for the area, even if that plan is to leave it empty for 5 years, there are plans.

    Wild West Falls finally reopened!

    Thanks for the shots of that scene. Someone needs to polish that brass on that engine...
