  1. They wouldn't spend tens of millions on a new ride to accidently wreck it on a 1st test! Gotta say I was surprised too but the very fact that actual people rode it later that same day suggests overwhelming confidence in the safety and performance of the ride's design and construction.
  2. Wow that is a surprise to see! I would have thought a slow pull through would have come first? Great to see it in action though! Can't believe it's only a month to go😃
  3. Like @Skeeta said maybe the lighting package isn't yet fully activated? Management spent a lot of time tinkering around with them before rolling out across the Pillars. Penty of time to get the look right. What's even more interesting is 5 pages discussing the Park's new Fence and more importantly, what's on them.
  4. Woah the anticipation to that 1st drop - great find thanks😃
  5. Songcheng Legendary Kingdom in Nerang

    I still think a Kmart would be a better use of the land.
  6. Songcheng Legendary Kingdom in Nerang

    Dig a 100 foot hole on the site? ....Then watch it fill in with water when it floods. When this whole thing was first announced I am sorry to say now how I initially jumped on the hype train and take it all back! As the Application unfolds the Project is folding and now it's just a joke. Nerang could really do with a Kmart, just saying.

    It's fantastic to see all possible funding being poured into this project. The Wave is also getting freshed up. We will have a shiny new looking Wipeout to ride again soon! Hopefully it'll last a bit longer this time around.

    ^ Creepy! Is your name Andrew? Seriously though @Minions! Whoever filmed this doesn't seem to be invited, a pretty stupid thing to do really. Trespassing is a big no no and not to mention unsafe. Was the person by themselves? What if you got hurt and were unable to call for help?
  9. Jobe's September Orlando trip

    I think your date choice os ideal @Jobe For one reason or another us Aussies love to venture to the US in September, however in my years of experience in Travel I can advise that whilst crowds at the Parks will be lower on international/interstateTourist numbers, annual passes are completely unblocked (not so much of an issue in Orlando mind you), weekends tend to be loads busier, off season trading hours apply so reduced Monday-Friday and certain major attractions may be closed. (Annual Maintenance or being overlayed for Halloween in October). May I ask where in Orlando are you staying and are you renting a car or do you plan to take courtesy transport to Parks etc? Just in my experience, WDW make it rather difficult for People staying on their properties to enjoy Orlando's other attractions. All aside the best advice I can offer is arrive early every day and if you like a drink, try not to go too hard in the evenings.. save that for Hawaii😆 All aside sounds like a tonne of fun @Jobe! You are certainly going to be grateful for that week in Paradise at the end!

    The area of bushland passed the Blue Lagoon and before the Amphitheatre would be an ideal spot for a brand new 'Ned Kelly Heist' - a set could also be easily built to bring back a 'Bush Ranger Show' that could take place around the same spot. It's a really dull part of the journey as it currently stands with the Staff member rattling on about attractions in the Park that everyone knows about while the train covers a lot of mothballed attractions. If they brought back the Baldwin for weekends and Holidays then make the whole thing an experience with an all new exciting Show that is uniquely DW and one that People will definitely be drawn to.

    Thanks @Brad2912 that's a real shame to hear. I rode the 'toy' train last time I was there. Nothing memorable. DW should think about bringing back a 'Ned Kelly' style heist that happened aboard the train back during the Park's early days. Definitely an 'experience' and easy/affordable to do, no doubt.

    @T-bone I feel a bit bad in that for a moment I had forgotten about that beautiful Steam Train the Park still has. It's a wonderful asset and has the Power to add some classic energy. When did it last run?
  13. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    With my best hopes for DW's future, I prefer to remain optimistic about all of these 'minor experiences'. While not earth shattering by any means they will at least all add up to improving the overall Customer Experience. This is something that's vitally important when they have no new Major attraction to promote.. again. Some of us choose to sit in armchairs and criticise current DW Management and it's Owners over the way things are ran. Fact is DW should be investing mega bucks right now on Capital but sadly the REALITY of things are they simply don't have the funds to spend and Ardent won't give the Park what it needs. It's been a tired old scenario playing out for too many years. Right now all DW can do is make the glass at least look half full by making the most of everything they have. For that, I think they are doing an excellent job.

    It's great to see that DW continue reaffirming the 'experience' in everything they are doing. I get the feeling that some high profile business Analyst and successful Author has recently been roped in to help DW identify it's Core Values and a business Mission Statement to centre everything around. Could 'whole new experience' just be referring to the fact that they will once again soon be operating and therefore offering new experiences to Guests simply by being open?
  15. Enjoyed read @Jobe I truly admire your passion for the smaller/"fun" Park arena.. On topic, who's not excited about a full sized Wave Swinger coming to LPS? Possibly my all time favourite Flat ride, the addition of the elevated (former U.F.O.) platform will no doubt offer some amazing views and extra thrills as Riders feel the forces beneath their seats as it dips high over the Crowd below. A PERFECT fit for LPS. It's delightfully good to see the direction of the "Classic Amusement Park" being fostered.
