  1. Richard's correct. I have an old brochure somewhere for Dreamworld from when The Giant Drop opened. It stated $12M was the cost IF they had built it as a standalone attraction. I guess they thought that it sounded more impressive.
  2. People go onto US theme park forums and ask for suggestions / tips / directions for trips and members bend over backwards to help them. On here people nit-pick and complain.

    Blacking out

    I had the same experience on Sheikra, except it was in the middle of the Immelmann.

    Green Lantern Coaster

    Sorry to bring this back up but, as someone's already mentioned, wasn't it clear from newspaper articles that the park was looking at expanding in that direction previously? It's not unheard of that a theme park has ordered a coaster before deciding on a location. I don't think you can dismiss the idea that they were planning on expanding the park in that direction completely unless you have some inside knowledge.

    Luna Park Ghost Train fire plaque

    It is to the right of where the Big Dipper's entry used to be from memory. So now it is past the Big Top entrance but before the Tango. It's not large, so it's easy to miss.

    Where's Superman?

    Whitsy seems to have some sort of weird fascination with all things "gay". Strange that.

    Dreamworlds Need A Thrill

    Vertical drop coaster (ala Sheikra and Griffon)

    Michael Jackson Themepark

    Yeah because that's exactly what he did. Randomly picked up kids off the street. And say what you will, but I don't think anyone could ever honestly agree that Michael Jackson was a talentless hack.
  9. The disappointing part of this for me isn't the attraction being added (or even that it's a sport-related attraction) - it's that it is another example of Dreamworld not keeping coherent themes throughout the different areas of the park. (Although, that being said, MW have become guilty of this more recently as well). MDMC in Rivertown? The Giant Drop in Rocky Hollow? The Tower of Terror in Village Green? All I would like to see in DW's choice of attractions is a little more thought as to their placement and a little more effort with theming (ala The Claw).
  10. What a stupid thing to say. It's not as if you were being felt up.
  11. The Chiller has apparently already been sold to another park, so it's not really a possibility. Besides, given the cost of dismantling, shipping, re-assembling and fixing the bugs that have plagued the ride since the start, MW would be better purchasing a new ride anyway.
  12. Farenheit looks like a great addition - and the price tag of $US12.1 million means it is within the price range of Australian parks. Great way to get a lot of inversions into a relatively compact footprint.
  13. What on earth are you trying to say? Sorry, but that's not even understandable in the slightest.
  14. It's been so long since I went to see that Special FX show, but I always thought it went: 1) Memphis Belle 2) Superman 3) Lethal Weapon sound effects Not that it matters, I'm probably way off the mark...

    Loonytunes Construction/Demolition

    Fine, if we're going to split hairs, perhaps I should've said "For anyone that believes these classic characters are dead to children today is severely mistaken and it is not necessary to re-direct the focus of the Looney Tunes Village area of the park towards more contemporary cartoons"...
