  1. Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2017

    Because the bigger the company the longer it takes for the left hand to talk to the right hand. Also these companies are fiercely (and rightly so) about protecting their brand so there will be a lot of back and forth before a final design is settled upon. Then you’ve got the job of looking for a contractor to come in and build it all, again the WB specs.
  2. I don’t think the argument is so much if it’s a good addition or well themed, but rather in a bad location. It could easily be an outdoor attraction, instead a perfectly good soundstage goes wasted for a great dark ride.

    You seem to have a long way to go in learning how big companies work and the intricacies of getting IP licenses signed off on. You don’t just send a Snapchat and get instant approval.
  4. Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster refurb in Nov/Dec 2017

    The media at the time kept writing stories too about how those 2 hated working here.
  5. Signage / website mistakes

    ^ Agreed and while we’re at it a station over by Jet Rescue to stop at the rides, especially since the land mass is bigger there now.
  6. As everyone has said it’s impossible to give lockers to everyone in the park or make them cheap, because again their won’t be enough. I don’t understand why that’s so hard to get. You have 2 options, get a locker. Or take the bare minimum and leave it on a chair in a backpack. Even the parks you love so much, Universal’s Volcano Bay is $10, and Disney’s $9 and with our Aussie dollar that would make them more. Every park does this, it’s universal practice and everyone has accepted this.

    Then they should be investing in new trains so capacity is kept the same, not diminished to save a buck. It’s not like this happened all of a sudden and they have to find space in the budget, the trains have been in this state for some time and they would have known their life span was coming to an end.
  8. What I like about this interview is it gives me a John Menzies era vibe. Passionate people who care about the parks and the people who visit them. They know keeping guests happy keeps them spending and coming back.
  9. VTP Annual Pass Changes

    Again another great improvement, this ad looks great and makes you excited about the parks. I can see people’s faces on the rides, but the scale of the rides, just how big DC Rivals is and love the tag of saying the best roller coaster.
  10. Movie World November 2017 Improvements

    All this stuff is looking great, love extra roving entertainment, it just adds to the whole feel. Not everything will ever be perfect, but this looks like a step in the right direction and won’t piss customers off, rather enjoy their day more. Can’t wait to check it out.
  11. Let's be honest about Top Golf

    Let's just remember this is being built here so as to turn the parks into a 'resort' with attractions to keep people amused at all times with accommodation included. This is long term thinking, with TG being one of the first stages, rather than just plonk it there and be done with it.
  12. If we see anything, I agree it'll be a revamp of their stunt show. IMO the next big thing that they need is a revamp of their LT area.
  13. The Off Topic Topic

    Now if only the cars weren't so boring and actually had some movement to them

    Yes & no for MW's fault. Number one rule for theming is keep it out of reach of guests, to try and prevent vandalism. That corridor used to be wide with poles to stop guests getting near the walls. Fast Track means 2 queues now in the one corridor, which means guests are right next to the walls. Perfect for etching their names into it.
  15. Or the fact that in this photo it looks like the lift hill supports are going up?
