    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    I cant see any discussion just yet about the 50 redundancies recently announced by Dreamworld. Any tips on departments?

    Theme park stories

    My best memory of the parks is working the Movie Magic Special Effects show at Movieworld. An extremely cruisy day... maybe three shows before parade, go out and put the bollards down, two shows after parade. Such an incredible crew to work with and made some lifelong memories including * Accidentally picking non-english speaking volunteers (except for superman - superman was always a family man or a non-english speaking tourist) * trying to make sense of the sound effects stage * playing around in the gimble at memphis belle * dodging bootys being thrown over the set at your head while on the superman stage Such an easy shift and so much fun.. maybe do a lunch relief at WWF or Scooby but most of the time chill in the greenroom.

    COVID-19 & Theme Park Closures

    Yes DW staff recieved an update email today. Approval has been recieved to operate at 50% capacity however no opening date to be declared just yet so as to 'properly implement' covid-safe measures and 'recommission' rides and attractions. My spec - they cant afford to operate with locals only and are waiting travel restrictions to ease. I personally would prefer they stay closed and play the longgame to try and ensure a future, then open quickly just cause the other guys are.

    Lesson learnt perhaps? Lets hope they put all their future plans on an easily accesible link 😂

    Yes agreed. I am grateful for Bikrash and his open communication, but we have to expect spin (especially on answers that would cause media attention outside of this bubble).

    I am sure when Bikash kindly joined the community here he wasn't expecting questions more suitable for a press conference every few hours.

    Went to Sealife at Sunny Coast today. Venue is all indoors. Had to pre-book an entry time (seems to be 40-50 slots per halfhour). Was temperature checked before gaining entry. Stickers on all the floors marking spaces to stand and distancing. Some smaller areas closed, but seemed to be all up and running ok.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Mate, I have the email. I literally have nothing to gain here by sharing the info, I was just passing on information that was sent to all staff. I didnt say anything about the % of track which was on its way. Im losing sleep over here that you're not believing me. Edit to add : the email is from late May. We are now 4th of June. I dont know who the other sources are and honestly cbf caring for internet points. If capital expenditure has been approved to start again since the email and the other sources comments, then I guess Germany are packing a nice little cargoload as we speak and a great voyage is taking place across the majestic seas.

    Yea I posted about it in this thread on the 21st of May. Probably got lost amongst all the speculation.

    An email sent to all staff mate. Rest of track remaining in Germany until hold on capital expenditure is lifted.

    I was there from 2003ish i think and the numbers were very similar.. in the days of the special effects show and police academy.

    Albeit a long time ago but average on a weekday (no holdays) at movieworld was anywhere between 2000-2500 guests. The numbers they are throwing around have been a bit shocking to me as well. What is the point in overstating figures?
