  1. Stingray was majorly loved, but not as much as Avalanche.
  2. I know you expect a response from me because of who that is aimed at Joz, but that is far from the truth at what you are alluding to. I think you have your wires crossed and dare say are being fed incorrect info. Regardless, I personally love vanilla ice cream and liquorice. Japanese Ice cream makes our ice cream look like shit.
  3. Also just to add, this loan offering isn’t just for the theme parks, but major tourism icons. https://www.ditid.qld.gov.au/our-work/queensland-tourism-icons-program-2020 Its good to see some government give a shit about the tourism economy.
  4. So does that mean they have to have it paid back at the end of the facility, or do they get said money over the term of 3 years (for example, in ardents case 22 million from the loan a year).
  5. Can someone point to me where it states the loan has to be repaid in 5 years? All I have seen is that the loan is a 3 year term with interest. So it’s not an interest free loan.

    New VRTP App

    Who? Make sure you have a good weekend.
  7. My post was before it became known about Ardents grant. That said I wasn’t talking about Ardent, but other icon operators important to the health of the tourism sector.
  8. Assuming Queensland Treasury Corporation is a QLD Gov owned entity, I hope all tourism operators who are in this predicament receive access to similar funding..

    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    I think Alexb is referring to the COVID testing location in the Movie World car park that was present for a long time, not sure if it is still there though.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    You can run the train backwards or the other way so to speak, both sides of the carriages are accessible. I have done some considerable research into this possibility, the gradient and curve coming out of Billabong and back to central is also pretty mad. A wet day and you would struggle to get a full load up there. At present, it is the steepest grade in the park, but it’s ok because you are going in the down direction. I am very curious as to how they are going to do this. When construction starts at that end of the park, the area is going to change quite considerably.
  11. How about a 3D film of virtual rides, because you know, sea world doesn’t have any rides right now, so may as well take the guests to a place that actually does have rides.. For those who don’t know, this is sarcasm.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Quite the opposite. Unless that new curve is graded really gently, it’s not going to work. Even the Baldwin would struggle with a full load up and through that curve. Stand at the end of Main Street station and look down to the track approaching Rocky Hollow. It’s very deceptive. That coupled with the fact it will be a tight curve, I’m very interested in seeing how it handles it that’s for sure..

    Sea World 2020 Maintenance

    The chain looks to be a safety/ redundancy chain, and it’s mounted on its original mounting. Don’t expect to see it spin again though if this is a permanent fix for it.

    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    This is referring to what’s happening now and not what occurred when the parks closed.
  15. For once a thread didn't go offtrack because of a comment I made. I'm glad Ardent did the right thing and pleaded guilty, the end of this whole horrible situation is near, hopefully we can then move on.
