    Green Lantern Coaster

    I got on the same time! Waited all day for it to open, not being sure if it would open at all... it finally opens... we move up the queue... get on the car.... then you could hear everything just stop.... and I immediately said, "No no no no no!" Bugga!
  2. Just noticed this on http://movieworld.myfun.com.au/Attractions-Maintenance.htm: Looney Toons River Ride will be closed from 25th October until further notice. The lack of an end date suggests it's not scheduled maintenance. I wonder how long it'll be closed - or whether it'll go the way of the Mine Ride at Dreamworld?

    VIP Pass is Back!

    I got mine in July and it was the proper card. I went with a friend who got one a couple of weeks ago - and it was on the shitty B&W laminated print-out thing. I'm guessing this is a cost-saving measure.

    Scooby break down

    When we were evacuated, we were in the lift at the top. Although house lights were on, there was very little light in the lift itself, so the flashlight came in handy.

    Who cares! He got the message across. It's a lot easier to read than those messages that formed as though they're sending a text message! Don't forget to capitalise your I's. Don't forget to capitalise the first letter in every sentence. See how pedantic people could be if they really wanted to? Let's stick to the subject rather than acting like school teachers.

    WVTP Changes

    There is no longer a drink pictured with the meal. That had me suspicious. When I asked for 2 bat meals, the lady asked if we wanted drinks, to which I responded, "Yes". I asked her, "Don't the meals include drinks any more?" - to which she shook her head. It cost us $32 for 2 meals with drinks. (One was a large drink).

    WVTP Changes

    There has been some discussion on annual pass holders and what they spend during the day. Over the last year, I have seen the prices of my favourite meal "The Bat" go from $9.95 to $10.95 and then $11.95. Last Saturday was the first time I've been in a while and the price was still $11.95 - but it no longer includes a drink, which is $3.95 (I think) for a regular. In effect, the price has gone from $9.95 to $15.90 in about a year. That's a 60% increase. Needless to say, we will now be ducking out to McDonalds across the highway at lunch time!

    SE Harness Saftey System

    I had a look yesterday as well and could see no wires - unless they're hidden in the harness. Of course Klassen has already mentioned that they don't have sensors, so it is a pointless discussion now anyway.

    Scooby Doo Lately

    Went again yesterday. Light on Scooby before the lift has been adjusted to shine on his face. (Hoorah!) The sound on the last Scooby was working - BUT - the light on him wasn't! D'oh! There was some fog - which was great to see. Just enough to see the lasers through the room and not just on the walls.

    Scooby Doo Lately

    I went again last weekend and there was no smoke. Hopefully it was just that day. I agree with Ads - light on Scooby needs to be moved. It's been like that since before the maintenance.
  11. I've said for a while that Dreamworld is actually better value-for-money. There's more to do there to fill in your day - even if you don't go to any of their shows. Depending on crowd levels and who I go with, my day at Movie World often winds down around 2 - 3pm. With regards to gates opening before opening time, this is a great idea. It takes ages to pay and get through the main gates. If they started letting people in the park at 10am, you'd be waiting for ages. By letting people in before 10am, rides can commence right on 10am when they drop the ropes. Here are the park hours: http://movieworld.myfun.com.au/Park-Info/Park-Hours.htm
  12. Ten was the only network dumb enough to keep running it. They finally came to their senses. I doubt it will be picked up by another network.
  13. Sometimes Batman is "late" arriving in the cave. He pops up after he starts talking! They often have the most boring operators at the start - hardly a good introduction to the ride. (Some are good though.) I think this is a ride where the novelty wears out fairly quickly. Add to this the fact that today's technology could come up with something heaps better, the ride soon loses its attraction. Perhaps it's time to look for something new or to revamp the ride with new technology.
  14. It's actually going to be hired out for things like "corporate events, social gatherings and parties." Source: http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0...40-3102,00.html I can't see it being a permanent attraction though. BB will be forgotten in a year or 2.

    Actually, fire doors are there to stop the fire spreading and to limit the amount of oxygen the fire has to burn. The last thing you want to do is open windows or leave doors open as this would introduce more oxygen to fuel the fire. Vents sometimes exist in fire-proof stairwells to allow people to escape without being overcome with smoke. As it's a fire-proof stairwell, there is no fire to be fuelled. (Smoke can get into stairwells as people evacuate.)
