  1. ^Please, please, please let it be a flying theatre attraction! Basically Soarin' over Australia. Perfect fit for Dreamworld and the old cinema location.
  2. Fright Nights 2017

    On the topic of age limits / age recommendations for Fright Nights......last Friday night I saw 3 families with young kids/infants and their prams strolling around the park. I found that quite bizarre, as the entertainment offering at Fright Nights is definitely not kid friendly.
  3. ^Looks like the spectacular marketing for DC Rivals is working
  4. Sea World - Castaway Reef 2017

    Visited Seaworld on Friday morning (27/10). Took a trip on the monorail to get some construction pictures of Cataway Reef. Enjoy!
  5. Funfields new attractions 2017/18

    I've also had a chance to ride the new rides at Funfields. So here are my reviews. The Voodoo is the thrill ride that the park desperately needed, and it does not disappoint. Don't let it's small size deceive you, because this ride delivers some surprisingly strong forces and hang time. The ride cycle time is perfect, with 2 full inversions and a 3rd inversion that is very slow....resulting in some loooong hang time. It's a pocket-rocket of a machine. Also, the harnesses and seats are comfortable. IMO it's better than Doomsday Destroyer, Pandamonium and Tailspin. However, I still prefer The Claw's shear power and intense airtime over the Voodoo. The ride also has some great theming and queue atmosphere. This is now the best dry attraction at the park. With 2 people the Gravity Wave is a little underwhelming, but with 4 persons.....wow what a slide. The beginning s-bend is a gentle, yet fun beginning; which lulls you into a false sense of security. Because what follows is nothing but gentle! The downward helix, the steep drop, and then the wave are an intense series of elements which took me by surprise. IMO this is best water slide I have been on, and is the best slide in the park. It’s also a really nice long waterslide. A must ride with 4 persons. Both are excellent additions to the park, and as @Andy G said, it's fantastic to see Funfields continue to expand. I'd love to see them add a family raft slide off the Gravity Wave tower....perhaps a 1/2 open, 1/2 enclosed mammoth slide. Love to hear people's thoughts as to what Funfields should add next.

  7. Sea World - Castaway Reef 2017

    Is anyone actually excited for this new addition to Seaworld? Is this truly the best use of a nice flat plot of land? Is a splash zone something that Seaworld is in dire need of at this point? I really am stumped that this project got the go ahead....seaworld is in a dire need of a new major attraction or even a new themed area with 1 or 2 dry rides. Am I the only one who is thinking this?
  8. Superman Escape dark section

    Could it be done with the tire drive/kicker wheels that move the trains through the dark ride section? Where some of the wheels are rough textured somewhat to create vibrations when the train rolls over them? Not sure, but yes @yaark i've definitely noticed it.

    I think it's actually a 16 passenger Zamperla Discovery Revolution . The funfields website states the height of the Voodoo is 18m, which matches with the tech specs on this page: http://www.zamperla.com/products/discovery-revolution/ I'm loving the story and theme for this ride. Also loving the stellar marketing job Funfields is doing for these 2 new rides! Really putting movieworld's marketing for DC Rivals to shame.
  10. Funfields new attractions 2017/18

    Whilst you are correct Andy, you might find the Voodoo has a thrilling point of difference over Dreamworld's claw! Both the Voodoo and Gravity Wave will be opening on Saturday 21st of October.
  11. Themeparks around the world that actually care about their customer service/experience offer lockers/storage boxes for FREE on all rides that restrict loose articles. That's the way it should be. Free lockers highly encourage your guests to abide by loose article policies/rules; ensuring that the majority of people use them. It also creates a positive message about how the park views rider safety.
  12. Funfields new attractions 2017/18

    Funfields have released new teaser trailers for their 2 new rides this season; Voodoo and Gravity Wave. So exciting to see such strong marketing and emphasis on theme for these new ride. The Herald Sun also published an article yesterday about the new mammoth Gravity Wave waterslide. I've seen the slide in person...it is an impressive beast. Definite contender for best waterslide in Australia. http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/new-gravity-wave-water-slide-at-funfields-theme-park-brings-zero-gforces-to-riders/news-story/e738589a183d22a0e4aa8fa423935641
  13. My goodness this footage is amazing!! The drones they are using to take this footage are insane!
  14. DC Rivals HyperCoaster - backwards seating

    ^Can't you choose, or ask nicely, for the forward facing row you want to ride in? Because I always ask the grouper on Superman and Green Lantern, and 99% of the time they come to the party.
  15. Fright Nights 2017

    ^Agreed! Such a great TVC/trailer. Universal HHN trailer quality. Very excited for this years event now; cannot wait!
