    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    Oh come on, nothing screams more cinematic than blue screen and shade structures! Over time you’d expect as ideas get more refined and cheaper to implement that we’d be seeing stuff by now that makes us go “Bermuda What?”, but sadly with each new iteration of attractions, the operators keep trying to pull the wool over the guests eyes.

    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    We were never going to get what was originally promised. The way each concept has changed so rapidly, and everything has been rather vague, you are in denial if you think Covid has had made them change the plans for what we see today. Sure future additions may be adjusted, but what we get for Vortex is what was originally intended. Smoke and mirrors people.

    Still a bit of work to go before the area looks like its inspiration. 10 points for trying though.
  5. The great thing about forums is that we can all have a very sensible discussion like this. I still personally believe it doesn't need another ride right now, there should be other priorities. Sure, lets look at that in the future, but right now, in my opinion there are bigger issues to fry throughout the park. Going back to your Ocean idea DJ, for that reason I still wish they had have gone with the remote control boats in the old wipeout location that was exhibited on these forums, but I guess someone else thought what we got there instead was better?
  6. I never said it was a bragging right coaster. The question was made about how many full circuit coasters the park has, and I answered the question. Does it really need a water ride just because it’s called ocean parade? I mean, the general feel of the area and it’s attractions do a good enough job of conveying the ocean parade message (sure it’s not perfect but it’s better than Motorcoaster next to a young children’s area). Id personally prefer a different style of ocean parade (more retro beachside amusement park style) but the park has bigger issues than ocean parade.

    I feel sorry for Craig Davidson and Bob Tan right now, they were a good duo!
  9. it's thinking like this that gets us a top spin at Sea World. Think bolder, think better.

    Australia needs another drop tower ride

    But would an upgrade to a falcons fury style of ride for GD be enough of an upgrade and worth the cost? I mean people like you and me would love it, but will it give enough bang for buck? Giant drop to some is terrifying as it is already.
  11. Well technically MDMC is full circuit, and it does coast after the launch. Same goes for Madagascar, sure it’s a family ride, but so is MDMC. Mick Doohans wouldn’t be so bad if they didn’t give it the stigma that it is a thrill ride all those years ago. Cyclone has quite a few years left, a lot more than Arkham
  12. Because they were ordering a bulk amount of fence rakes, the price per fence rake went up one cent for every rake. Because that’s how bulk ordering goes..
  13. But Dreamworld does have 3 full circuit coasters. MDMC, Madagascar, Cyclone. 4 if you count Buzzsaw, and 5 if you count the new triple launch coaster..
  14. The thing people have to remember is that the issue with TRRR wasn’t what occurred during the ride course, it happened at the unload point of the vehicles. If any park is to say “look, this is why this is safe” and show the public, then it shouldn’t be an issue. When the LPS ghost train fire happened, it didn’t kill the prospect of further dark rides in Australia. People will move on, they just need the industry leaders to move on and show them there isn’t anything to worry about.
