  1. Nah, they are still getting refurbished at the Dreamworld workshop.. Won't be long before it's sent down to the Spit.
  2. I agreed. With a 2 year old we are very much looking forward to a fun night out with our daughter with no fear of running into a scary villain or character. This event suits us perfectly and I hope it is the start of great things for the event. A shame the train kicks you off at Billabong but I’m sure they have their reason for doing it that way. As long as the experience is a fully inclusive and well thought out experience?
  3. When you say they drop you off at Billabong Station, does that mean you have to hop off, then the train leaves you there and heads back to Central Park station empty? The sea monster animatronic and whole train show seems to be a great idea. I think its also a good idea that they didn't over-sell the event, first impressions count and if you over-sell your first event, then that impression from the guests will stick. IMO, the train is one of the parks biggest assets when it comes to events like this, and what has been shown tonight (if what I am reading is correct) is only a small portion of what is possible.
  4. Gotta say, I am impressed they have the train running for the Halloween event. GCAF, are you able to provide a review and highlight what was open, and what wasn't for the event?
  5. Can someone draw up a diagram of the flow of how the queue now works, such as are there 2 switch backs on either side of the screen, or is it now just one continuous queue which snakes around the room and you get assigned a level when you reach the end? Also how is the very first room now setup, do the sliding doors still operate or are they locked open?
  6. For those worried about the Salmon colour of the RIP, rest assured that as I drove past WWW today, I noticed the paint job on RIP had been completed and it was it’s expected purple and red. #Salmongate over.
  7. Gotcha, thanks for that, a little tucked away corner that no one really notices. Good job village.
  8. But mostly disappoint. Where is that meet and greet location? Noticed when I visited today it was not in the Splashzone area.
  9. But Alexb, Wwfng has a nice ring to it. Remember it will be world class!
  10. Does it really matter? It’s a fresh coat of paint and it doesn’t look like shit, good job Ardent.
  11. In your last photo I feel there was a sign advertising the pizza and pasta portion of the buffet. Has anyone been there yet to report what the new offering is like? If only ParkChat Live was still around, we could have had a full hour episode review!
  12. The thing with the pre show, is if they are loading properly and running the attraction to its full capacity, i’d Prefer to sit through the pre show than to be standing outside in the bullpen with nothing to do. Could it be better? Absolutely it could be, but I think DW need to be given a patt on the back for attempting to do a fully inclusive experience with a pre show experience, as let’s face it, none of the parks have included a pre show on any of their new attractions in recent years.
  13. They had done part of this work, but there was some still left to be done when I visited last week. Hopefully the train is reliable enough for this sign to be correct
  14. So the Sea World helicopters are being outsourced now? Go Village.. it may not take as long as people predict for a chopper to crash into the Broadwater 😛
  15. Location wise it is possible but the grade is too steep, they’d have to do some serious grading work to get it around Tower. Ontop of that the curve to go around tower would be quite significant. Would they? Depends, I guess anything is possible. Should they? I don’t think so, that leg of track provides a decent ride even in the tractor.
  16. Thanks for the photo. Its a sight for sore eyes seeing that walkway clear. Good ride for the target audience, but most awful placement.
  17. 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.
  18. Why does the park need an IP based attraction? Imo I want to see one of those water park simulator rides in Oz.
  19. Looks like the guys who redid Gumbuya World are hiring - https://www.linkedin.com/posts/picoplay_internship-picopeople-themeparks-activity-6564278817362370560-HRu6?fbclid=IwAR3SrKSiH6ef6WbQeRG1P_00dIV-LrWndpjNZENkzl-h7bfUVkD-oBszBJo
  20. 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..
  21. 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.
  22. Thanks for the update. Gotta love that no maintenance diesel train...
  23. 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.
