  1. Haha at Utopia, how WAS that? I couldn't go to Utopia this year due to age but next year definately .
  2. True, The sub prime mortgage crisis in the US might not affect Australian consumers as such, I'm just worried that because of the terrible exchange rate, the theme parks will be hesitant to add new attractions from overseas as they just aren't as attractive pricewise anymore. Let's hope I'm proved wrong
  3. To be honest it sounds as if he's got no idea what he's talking about. 100% speculation. Australia is the new mysterious faraway, whispered about land
  4. So it'd be more feasible to do the DW/WWW in a day? You can only get the two day world fun pass can't you?
  5. Given the current economic downturn, in your opinion do you think the GC theme parks will cut their spending and we will, as a result get a much more ordinary product for our money? Do you think attendance figures will take a large or small dip? It'll be an interesting twelve months, not with theme parks but with the economy in general.
  6. Is Movie World actually a half day park? I've heard people say it on the boards bt I was just wondering if mid November it's possible to do both MovieWorld and W'n'W in a day. I have 2 days I can go to theme parks, and I'm planning on doing MovieWorld and DreamWorld. Should I do Dreamworld/WhiteWater world or MovieWorld/W'n'w in a day if at all possible? Thanks,
  7. i dont get it, i dont have much knowledge of the slides, whats wrong with the first one?
  8. My uncle worked as a drunk person there and my grandfather worked in administration. Its just being run into the ground. it was a fairly boring place though.
  9. If you're talking about the waterslides that were at Forresters Beach? They had one of those "Kamikaze" 2/3 dip fast body slides and two normal waterslides. Horrendously overpriced and ridden with graffiti. It was actually a couple of kilometres down the road from a shopping centre called Bay Village, which is in Bateau Bay. Lake Haven has a shopping centre but it's a hole so lets not go there. I went there what, like twice? I'd be happy to help out on any other questions you need answered.
  10. I say save their pennies, bulldoze the lot and build a Eurofighter inside a non-flammable mountain. Wayyyyyy more fun. Innovation all the way.
  11. C'mon vekoma tilt! [vekoma's got two in Australia?] Either Intamin or Vekoma I hope.
  12. Apparently not, what a poser. Haha just kidding Ev. PS: Yuck, purple neons *choke* Where's the lime?
  13. Nothing's radical about a bobsled coaster, I was adressing the last four of your posts hence the 'you're right, let's put all three in there.'
  14. Start of sarcasm Nope, as if i'd do that to you Evo End of sarcasm
  15. Cross between Demon and tassy. They were both great rides to me anyway.
  16. Runaway reptar, I love its layout and the fact that it doesn't hurt
  17. ^ You're right, maybe we should put all three ride types in there, and while we're at it, lets put a spinning 800ft gigacoaster in there too! Movie World can afford it!
  18. That looks pretty hectic, where'd you find it? I couldn't find it on the site. Google images? It looks pretty good though it'd look great in a park I think, and by the looks of it it'd have great capacity, it isn't all that long.
  19. You guys are so cruel, haha. Mid loop my ar$e. Thankyou for your information Jake-train.
  20. ^^ Really? as there's no way I could've flipped mine, mine just slowly meandered its way down the mountain. It wasn't really the slightest bit fast. It would have gone about 25km/h max. :s
  21. I'm comparing it to the Toboggan hill park in Port Stephens. You actually slowed down on the downhill straights instead of speeding up. You go almost twice that speed at the track at port stephens, plus the toboggans themselves are much sturdier and ultimately just a tonne better. I wasn't stuck behind anyone either.
  22. Klarer website It has a couple of interesting concepts, like the "jump slide" too. It's a European country
  23. Well yes, though that was built in the 80's.. which mustn't have been researched all that much. Apparently it was a hideous failure, but i'm sure nowadays something of this calibre would have to be inspected something chronic to actually be allowed into a theme park, so there wouldn't be all that much to worry about IMO.
  24. It has been in development for four years... they aren't stupid... IMO it looks great.
