  1. Thanks. I know we did 12 out of 14 days of the flex tickets in the parks. $300 USD each for full flexi, and the wife wants to do discovery cove this time ( ekk $200 for the day ). Its not going to be a cheap holiday.
  2. Normally stay opposite wet and wild. Both the rodeway and movieland do a free bus to universal, and its still walkable if you want to stay late. Off there for the 20 days in december. Thinking about not getting a car this year, and just using the buses as cars appear to be getting much more expensive, and you still pay car parking. What did everyone do about ticketing. Think about just get the 14 day orlando flex, but wondering where to get it from.
  3. Gwazi - If you want the credit, then then end of the day. One nasty shaker, and for some reason my daughter likes it. Off for 20 days to orlando myself in December. Last trip was 2005 , so I guess a couple of new rides, and harry potter world for the kids. Tend to stick to universal/ busch/sea world myself as I hate the huge queues that disney has. Time to see what skeikra is like ( compared to Oblivion ), and now my daughter is tall enough to ride all the big rides 14 day flexticket unless someone knows a better deal at the moment. Anyone got any ticket outlet recommendations that are not scams etc ?
  4. Openning dates and details have been released (18th of March) http://www.rwsentosa.com/language/en-US/At...tudiosSingapore Not sure how soft an openning it will be

  6. Facebook people can join 'Resorts World at Sentosa' fan group. Lots of info and pics get published
  7. Halloween Saturday 10 October 2009 is now 9.95 for myfun members.. won't last long.
  8. Some are impacted by events rather than attendence for the rides, but gives you a chance to see what are the world's most popular etc. http://www.teaconnect.org/etea/TEAERA2008.pdf
  9. Ask at http://www.coasterforce.com/forums/ which is the UK equiv of this site. Myself between alton and thorpe. As Chessington and thorpe are owned by the same group, the faster rides that could move have move to thorpe so making Chessington the family park, and thorpe for the teenagers. Thorpe has saw, stealth, Colossus (ouch my neck ), Nemesis, rush (large power swing ) etc which are all good if you are used to Oz only coasters. Alton has rita if you like speed, air for a different ride, Olbivion (still good) . Both have the flat rides etc, but I like speed over something that makes me feel sick.
  10. No report on Thorpe and blackpool ? Thorpe park was my local park (5km) in the uk, did you get to ride SAW ?
  11. preshows are generally about convincing the people that they are still not in the queue. Sure there's atmosphere, but with good throughput you don't need them.
  12. AVPX was ok, went 3 times today. Pretty standard laser quest type layout, and the guys are still learning there lines, but at least its another attraction. Kids loved it , and its better than paying $30 a go at some local laser quest. Not popular yet, so a max of 30 or so in the queue, and they take 30ish per game. It was pretty empty today. River rapid is still down, but most queues were short except for the log ride. Also went to WWW which was a relaxing afternoon if a little cold.
  13. I think most people go to disney for disney rather than the rides. If its the rides, then look at the other european parks instead.
  14. Lots of bad queuing, and generally pushing in, or standing in front of you at the parades when you've waited an hour in place. Expensive, and strangely the longer of queues are the kiddy rides.. Peter Pan is always bad.. get a fast track, dumbo is long. Big ride queues can be small, and go during the parades if you can, or stay late as lots of the coaches leave b4 the park closes. Watch out for pick-pockets ( we lost a camera ) Ride rock'n'coaster if you go to the studio. If you stay in the hotel , then I think you still get early entry. ( the cowboy one is the cheapest/decent one ) Food is expensive. Can be very hot in the summer, and sub-zero in the winter.
  15. Like the look of the cars, shame they didn't go for a lowered front set so that the second row could get the front row view. Basically it all about power like the tower of terror was 10 years ago, however I'd love to see some more S&S rides in Oz, perhaps a nice large screaming swing for the gold coast.
