  1. I flew over Movieworld today, and Batwing was working!
  2. ok here they are, there not to clear which is a bit dissapointing, but hey, its hard taking a picture flying along at 250km/hr definetley looks like there has been an extra bit added onto the bb house
  3. Sounds really good for Australia Zoo. Im glad Terri has decided to hold onto the park, it just wouldnt be the same without her. I read the article in the GoldCoast Bulletin on Friday, I think it said they had or were planning to purchase an extra ~200sq.ha of land, to add to the already 50sq.ha. If she does build an accomodation and theme park there, the pull that it would bring from american alone, would be enormous. Think about it, Australia Zoo's located all around the world like disneyland. It really has the potential... Sure it wont be "magical" like Disneyland but themed rides to animals would go down so well.
  4. Finally flew over it this morning, got a few photos, although air traffic control wouldnt allow me to go below 2000ft due dreamworld helicopter traffic, so the detail aint that great. Having some problems with my USB cable atm, will upload when fixed. There are a few extra buildings and it looks like from my photos (only viewing them from the camera), that their is another pool in a seperate complex from the main backyard.
  5. Any chance of grabbing one please? I can send you my address?
  6. Expedition Everest rocked! It is one of the most nicely themed rollercoasters I have even seen! Not to mention the ride is actually half decent. I went in Jan 07 for about 2 weeks with the family, which was Disneys quiet period. Think the most we waited for EE was about 30min, rode it countless number of times, and never got sick of it. Kali River Rapids was really nice too. 100x times better than Dreamworlds version - Kali is actually themed! You go through mist and ooooahhhhh its so nice! Oh, and dont even get me started on Kilimanjaro Safari's! Absolutley brilliant! *honk* *honk* "Jumbo everyone, welcome to Kilimanjaro Safari's, wave goodbye, you see them in 2 weeks" *driver floors truck* Animal Kingdom is truely one of the great theme parks! I enjoyed it so much I cant wait to go back!
  7. I fly over it quite a bit, I'll try and get some photos next time - but yes, there is construction going on.
  8. rofl ^^ now that was funny
  9. To get cheaper and decent disney accomodation wink wink nudge nudge disney vacation club. Saved my parents about $5k in accomodation and we were at saratoga springs..... the newest disney resort and it was spectacular. Tto cut it short; DVC members buy rooms from disney resorts and are able to rent there points out to you if there not using it, usually for around $6 - $10 a point. How many points you need depends on the time of year your visiting, and how many nights you intend to stay, and it varies for each resort. From memory it was going to cost us $9k for 5 of us for 2 weeks at Saratoga Springs, but we managed to find a DVC member who rented us points, and the points cost us about $4k for 2 weeks..... so yes thats a hell big saving DVC members rent out there points here: http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=7 or you can put in a request thread. 1 thing I must say, is that this renting point system is very trustworthy based. I would recommend reading all the pinned and info threads from there forums! We were lucky and managed to find a very nice american couple! Good Luck!
  10. i dont sorry is it possible to record straight onto a dvd like u can to vhs?
  11. highest level operator required to operate the log ride? good god, what has the world come to
  12. tbh i agreed with the author dreamworld simply lacks decent rides
  13. well, at least ur getting the exposure u were after
  14. well why pay $30 for a new dvd when u can hire them out on tuesdays for $1, and rip them? i dont sell, nor make profit out of them, so i dont really care likewise i download music with limewire, but if i really like an artist i might still buy there cd. but again, why pay $30 for a cd, if u can get it for free off the net in 5minutes? blame the technology
  15. Recently went to LA, and it is a complete **** whole. Nothing much too see there except for Disneyland, and the level upon level of highways. I was 20 when we went to Las Vegas and I couldnt go anywhere, as the age over there is 21. Wouldnt even let me into a casino.... so Las Vegas was very boring.
