    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    https://www.goldcoastbulletin.com.au/news/gold-coast/village-roadshow-theme-parks-coo-bikash-randhawa-pushes-for-borders-to-reopen/news-story/b78eebc11f180e1576a8a541d2abb47b
  2. Another incident to further tarnish the already struggling amusement/themed entertainment industry in Australia. So sad.... Just over a year ago, at last year's RMS, there was an incident on the "Fury". It occurred 4 days into the show, and then was SBNO for the rest of the event. https://www.theage.com.au/national/victoria/terror-of-a-ride-fury-shut-down-after-young-girl-injured-at-show-20190925-p52ut3.html
  3. Agreed. I would have much preferred they just replaced all the set pieces/scenes, animatronics and lighting in the dark ride sections as per the original opening day attraction. Obviously these would all be up to the new safety standards/code. They instead focused too much on incorporating new technology. And thus the simple thematic and storytelling elements that the original did so well, got sidelined.

    Nostalgia at the Parks

    Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster (original version) could be considered as a fantastic dark ride built in the last 20 years, under prior management? True. Clark & Bikash cannot be 100% responsible for the gradual degradation of the VRTP themepark product offering. This has happened over many years, prior to them in top management roles. I just don't think either of them have the true passion and vision to steer VRTPs out of the current "cedar fair/six flags" product quality, and more towards busch gardens/europa park/universal quality.

    Nostalgia at the Parks

    Good point. It won't happen though. We will never see Village build a dark ride to the standard of LTRR, with the current Clark & Bikash dynamic duo running the show.

    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    I would love to observe how VRTP goes about building new attractions for their parks. See the whole new attraction process: deciding on attraction/ride, securing capital, design, construction, how major decisions are made, and the reasoning/logic behind those decisions. I have so many questions about this attraction.....my mind boggles. The finished product looks incredibly vanilla. There is no soul or creativity shown. I wonder if the people involved in this project are truly proud of their work, and believe it is "world class"? I would be embarrassed if I was apart of this project.

    What’s next for movie world

    Most kids haven't seen the 1995 film Waterworld, or know of that IP. Yet the Waterworld stunt show (a stunt show based off that IP) is a very popular attraction, and still highly regarded as one of the best theme park stunt shows in the world. When Universal Beijing opens next year, 4 of those shows will be cloned around the world. The post apocalyptic world of Mad Max lends itself towards a fantastic set, costumes, and action sequences. There are many similarities between the Mad Max and Waterworld films; why not take inspiration from the most successful themepark stunt show in the world.

    What’s next for movie world

    I mostly agree with @Gazza - Complete overhaul of Kids WB Fun Zone. - Completely new stunt show. Mad Max is the glaringly obvious choice for the theme. It's the most perfect IP, as it's an Australian film, and distributed by Roadshow Films locally, and Warner Bros. Pictures internationally. - Replace lethal weapon with a next gen Vekoma Flying coaster. A Batman theme would work perfectly. - Family thrill mine train coaster that interacts with Wild West Falls in some way. With some cool tricks (e.g. drop track, backwards section, multi launches).

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    I'm pretty sure the raw coaster track and seat supports shown in this video is for Dreamworld's new coaster. A really great documentary detailing the coaster manufacturing/fabrication process at Mack rides in Germany. There is also some great discussion about the history of the Mack family, and the evolution of Mack rides and Europa Park. Plus they show off that cool "rocking boat" prototype water ride.
  11. LOL....Luna Park Melbourne has a direction?

    New Attraction for Dreamworld Suggestions

    Cool idea. Would love for Mack to do it though. A custom compact Super Splash model with an elevator lift, and head chopper airtime hill before the splashdown. Similar to this model at Plopsaland De Panne: For some reason this supersplash model is not listed on rcdb.... but the more generic 'Atlantica' supersplash model is https://rcdb.com/2928.htm).
