  1. I'm sure this will be a very balanced and in-depth report...
  2. A quick vox-pop. What are the last three things you can recall that added value to the park for you as a guest? Now, what are the last three things you can recall that Dreamworld did well? Things that added value for me: Tailspin (2014) Pandamonium (2012) The Claw (2004) Things that were done well: Tiger Island refurb (2016) Brock's Garage Motorsport Museum (2015) Dreamworks precinct (2012) God, I had to scrape the bottom of the barrel for a few of these. I would have loved to have put the refurb of Wipeout on the 'done well' list, but I just haven't seen the reliability out of it, nor have I seen the theming ever look finished.
  3. I just don't quite understand the management thinking that let's this happen. The attraction is most certainly closed and not returning, so what's the sense in leaving signage out like some sort of hoarder? It's almost like someone has it in their head that leaving the signage up for a missing attraction is better than having no signage. It's gone, management; the first thing you should have done with the EWP is removed the signage, and only then should you strip it internally. Also, do you guys not keep an index or inventory of your signage around the park so you know exactly where to go when you make changes to your attraction line-up?
  4. Even an old, broken clock is right twice a day I suppose...

    Dreamworld Update 5 August 2018

    I wonder if that same boss happened to notice the pizza oven no longer got to the temperature it was meant to and somebody had removed all the safety cutouts and left an exposed heating element?

    Dreamworld Update 5 August 2018

    What does it say for the "thorough safety audit" that took place following TRR before the rides re-opened?

    That's pretty much where I was going with this.

    Dreamworld Update 5 August 2018

    ...how many maintenance staff does Dreamworld employ? There can't possibly be enough for them to be supervising maintenance on all of those attractions simultaneously, let alone doing the work themselves!
  9. Even putting aside the question of whether the park has improved since those photos of the 80's and 90's, I even wonder whether the question could even be set at the lower bar of has the park aged well? Real, proper genius is hard to manufacture. But if the tide is out in the talent pool your only other option is to preserve and maintain what you've got. Seems like they did neither.
  10. On the plus side, if we mandate stripping down the paint every ten years the parks might stand a chance of looking a little better...
  11. I only disagree with: I firmly believe that if you have young children, Dreamworld is your best choice of a park to visit in terms of ride selection.
  12. Thankyou for sharing that with us.

    I know that's what the website says and all, but given I'm looking at traffic across three that are currently in use as I type this there's a bit of a disconnect between the website and reality... (are you surprised?)

    Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2018

    At the end of the day they could (and probably did) have easily closed TRR for a month and not fixed the flaws that helped lead up to the incident.
