  1. Gotta agree with Push here (for the first time in forever).
  2. The amount of complaining and whining you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise mate!
  3. You said above that you hate Dreamworld, hence why I asked. You seem to be making a mountain out of an ant hill..
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Beatbox? Really? The best seasonal show the park has ever done? Push, you really are...best stop there before I upset anyone.
  11. Screw the rules, just do it I say, what have you got to lose?
  12. May as well, but why not film the whole performance?
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. Is it safe to say they saw this idea mentioned on parkz? You are welcome Dreamworld.
  16. Well, im still waiting for DW to call me to drive the train @Jdude95
  17. I believe a biccy rash is this - but on an Arnotts biscuit Clearly if big ash has said that though, then it’s clear, it’s a new chill out zone, but they can’t call it chill out zone, so instead it will be called the cool out zone.
  18. See I like how you guys are reading this, the way I see it, this is ardents way of saying “we have looked after our staff by giving them nationally recognised training” when the park closes down. Please prove me wrong.
  19. This looks to be at the train station no?
  20. Matt Hollywood? May as well watch paint dry, its more magic than him. This is Ardents version of "capital light", and good on them if it works this time, but nothing beats having rides open in a theme park, or heck new rides and attractions to experience, something Ardent have forgotten.
  21. Fun fact, Tony Laffan was also a fixture of Dreamworld in the early years.
  22. The train is fucked, putting it lightly. The sad thing is the Baldwin steam locomotive which is also sitting in the shed can run tomorrow if there was enough will to get it going. if the train does close, never to reopen, well there goes an attraction that everybody can ride and enjoy. Ontop of that, with no train there is no longer any transport attractions within the park. Yeah ok not every theme park needs transport rides, movie world survives without one, but Movie World is not as spread out and is a lot more flat when compared to dreamworld. If Dreamworld management want someone to run the steam train for them, give me a call
  23. Can we get them for false advertising with the incredible looking disco room in that video?
  24. For what it replaced it’s pretty carny looking. You can do bright and fun without beig gaudy as all hell, see the attached example.
