  1. An Article from the Courier Mail this morning. > http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/dreamworld-to-unveil-new-flying-theatre-attraction-for-gold-coast-theme-park/news-story/4f076ea1f13151e0a42a99b82a21de94 It suggests there will be an announcement today of the Flying Theatre attraction, and that there are plans to put in a dark ride in the spot of the mine ride.

    Dreamworld Update - 3rd of August

    Thanks for the photo. Its a sight for sore eyes seeing that walkway clear. Good ride for the target audience, but most awful placement.

    WWW - New slide tower

    I think Push has finally lost the plot. The new slide announcement is the filler slide tower that WWW has needed and i'm so glad its here. Finally slides I won't need to use a tube for. Just because they are basic, doesn't mean they are bad.

    WNW - GC upgrade ideas

    Why does the park need an IP based attraction? Imo I want to see one of those water park simulator rides in Oz.

    Dreamworld Update - 3rd of August

    We popped into Dreamworld yesterday and Blue Lagoon is still standing. What I found interesting is that there were quite a lot of new construction pegs/ flags around the train shed, and the embankments around the train track in that area. Whilst not the first time construction pegs have appeared and then nothing eventuates, something tells me that something might actually come from these ones..

    Dreamworld Update - 3rd of August

    Well yes the demolition wouldn’t be helping but let’s say the demolition work isn’t the only reason the tractor is not on the tracks. Once again the signage says it all.

    Thanks for the update. Gotta love that no maintenance diesel train...

    Dreamworld Update July

    Train is safe, the track recently had some big $$$ spent on it near that section, so unless a large piece of the amphitheatre falls on the track with force, it will be fine.

    Gotta agree with Push here (for the first time in forever).

    The latest Dreamworld stuff up

    The amount of complaining and whining you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise mate!

    You said above that you hate Dreamworld, hence why I asked. You seem to be making a mountain out of an ant hill..

    The latest Dreamworld stuff up

    Push, I have to ask, if you hate the park so much why must you visit? If you get no enjoyment out of the park, then don't visit? I don't understand why you must visit and then complain about said visit?

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    We must be thinking of different rides Push, AA’s theming is not movie like nor an immersive experience. The park had many better themed and immersive rides than it.

    Wipeout Removal

    The water savings from the water restrictions were much later in the rides life, and well into the 2000’s. These were the same restrictions that saw the waterfall near Billabong turned off, and yes the fountains in the Main Street fountain were also turned off. With Wipeout, the restrictions saw them empty the pool altogether. The waterfall effects were turned off very early on the rides life. I’ve found some awesome photos and video footage of the ride in its infancy on the Dreamworld Golden Years Facebook page, Photos - https://www.facebook.com/537015473442196/posts/627161057760970?s=520611312&sfns=mo Video - https://www.facebook.com/dwgoldenyears/videos/736929256707236?s=520611312&v=e&sfns=mo
  17. I finally had the chance to ride the new Scooby Doo Coaster with my wife the other day. Scooby Doo and the live action film hold dear to our hearts for various reasons for which I will not go into here. I am usually a firm believer of "if you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all", but with this I just cant restrain myself. What the fuck have they done to this ride? They have essentially taken what was a world class and world renowned ride and made it a steaming pile of shit. What the ride has become is now an insult to the original ride, and certainly an insult to the words "World Class". To those who think that they are still to go in and fix it, this it it guys, this is as good as it gets, this is what management consider "world class", it isn't going to get any better until someone wakes up from their deep sleep. I don't understand who thought this was good enough to sign off on, but if this is what is considered the new "amazing" at VRTP, then you all should be very concerned for future projects.

    I know the definition of Opinion Push, don't get your knickers in a knot! I was just stating my opinion that your opinion is wrong. But, I think Skeeta hit the ball in one.

    Nah, you aren’t. If we say beat box is the pinnacle of evening entertainment, then boy we are aiming really low, to the point that the abomination that is Hollywood stunt driver 2 is a substantially better offering than that crappy fake DJ show. I hope it never returns.

    Beatbox? Really? The best seasonal show the park has ever done? Push, you really are...best stop there before I upset anyone.

    Dreamworld April Update

    So with the mention of work happening on the train next to buzzsaw, you show a photo of the train shed, but I see no train, just a train carriage. Was there anything else you could see?
  25. This takes me back to the days when there was someone on here who was obsessed with the counterweight. Great find Jobe, thanks for sharing.
