    Well DUH Adam!! To you and me this might be simple logic. However when something like this is advertised as "expert advice" and " a handy tutorial to recharge any battery" then it runs the risk of leading the not so informed down the wrong track. Trying to charge ANY non-rechargeable battery can be dangerious (which means it IS dangerious) therefore its worth a mention so people who dont know any better dont go and try this sort of stuff.

    You have to be kidding....Guys DONT try this with non-rechargeable batteries, you will be both wasting your time and running a minor risk of hurting yourself. Standard batteries convert their stored chemical energy to electrical energy in a non-reversible way. The elements inside the battery decay till they no longer function. Consider this like a boat in the ocean being left to rust...you cant de-rust it to make it new again...instead you buy a new one! Batteries that can be charged really wont be able to be charged in this way either. They require a flow of electrical energy to reverse the chemical effect of the battery de-charging....you need a supply of power connected to BOTH ends of the battery to be able to do this...much like for a flashlight to work it needs to be connected to both ends of the battery..your light wont work with only one side of the battery connected, and your battery wont be recharged with only one end connected too! Charging standard non-rechargeable batteries is also a risk... you risk overheating the battery and explosion. This wont like blow up your house or anything but will probaly wreck whatever it is you have connected to the battery at the time...you may also start a fire...which may then in turn be as bad as blowing up your house In short DONT charge non-rechargeable batteries...the shell of the battery will tell you this anyway...like all warnings they are there for a reason! Anyone who knows ANYTHNING about batteries or electricity will tell you this guy is a quack!

    Ticket Price Hike

    Dude even at $185 for a yearly pass that only equates to $3.55 per week. Assuming that you visited the park about 10 times in that year, your average entry price would still be below 20 bucks! Pretty cheap if you look at it that way. Prices unfortunately are only ever going to go up. Its just the way of the world. In about 12 months it will go up again anyway so you would be better off buying your pass now.

    Dreamworld looking old?

    Noticed the same thing on a recent trip myself. Mostly for me it was just a few things in need of a good lick of paint. In particular the paint job on the Claw!! yikes hasnt that faded in such a short time!
  12. The lap-bars were able to be shaken in their locked position but not opened very far at all. Like you could move it 2 or 3 cm at most. Would be almost impossible for an adult to come all the way out of your seat however. Because of the position of the lap bar over the seat, you'd need backwards bending knees to slide all the way out. For the most part when my friends and i were on the beast we tried to do full circuits without holding on....This was achieved by standing up as far as possible in your seat, with your thighs resting hard on the underside of the lapbar. This enabled you to hold on and not be thrown about whilst not holding on with your hands. The other feature of the BB cars that would have made it almost impossible to slide out of was the fact that the seats had a dividing armrest between the two riders. Thus making it even harder for your legs to come out because you couldnt get your body in a position where you were angled across the car. Though I think it must be obvious that the BB would not have been able to be insured and therefore operated unless it was proven that it was like 99.9% impossible for the "average" person to come out of their seat, either deliberately or accidently during the ride.
