  1. Think it was a combined result for DW/WWW

    Quite sure that you can rock up at front gate and purchase the VIP pass. Would save time going through web and not having to wait in queue
  3. Saw this article regarding an interesting campaign in Orlando Jobless? Get paid $25,000 to ride everything in Orlando Jason Cochran Pack your Dramamine: The tourist city of Orlando, home to seven of the most popular amusement parks on earth, is rolling out a job search for a couple who can take 67 days off to ride every ride, tour every attraction, get rubbed down at every spa, and generally explore every crevice (and line) of the Mecca of Mascots. The pay, to cover expenses back home during those two months, will be $25,000, and the winner will be put up in a one-bedroom condo of their own in downtown Orlando, the better to dabble in its arts district, cafés, and prime Vietnamese restaurant drag when theme parking wears out. All the job holders will have to do in return is document their grueling, turkey leg-packed adventure using a supplied set of cell phone, video camera, and still camera, and to post their doings online via hotspots such as Facebook and Twitter. Their jealousy-making life, Orlando hopes, will stir Americans to venture out of their recession caves and come play again. The application process is pretty simple: Turn in two photos, a one-minute video, and be at least 21. Applicants can be of any nationality, and your twosome can even be the same sex -- which means you can be in a romantic couple or part of an Amazing Race-style team-up. But given the name of this promotion, 67 Days of Smiles, it's a safe bet that you'll need to be able to grin on cue as an official online ambassador of the area that supports Disney, Universal, and SeaWorld. The latter two resorts, in particular, which run a combined five parks, are entering hard times thanks to precipitous tourism drops, despite the fact that both of them have just added mega-coasters to their lineups. Like Queensland, Australia's recent search for someone to paddle about in its Great Barrier Reef, Orlando's Convention and Visitors Bureau plans to beef up its flagging tourism trade with this stunt. Partners can apply through the official, tourist tax-supported Link for those interested:

    Hollywood Stuntdriver Update Thread

    Thanks for the feedback and opinions on Hollywood Stunt Driver Three shows (previews) planned from Boxing day, timings as follows: 12.30pm 2.30pm 4.15pm Sorry Ash, you may have to start work late
  7. Glenn and Richard - thanks so much for the debate and some interesting points from both parties. I was just looking at the other option on the Lo-Q website an they have Text-Q system where a guest can use their mobile phones to reserve a spot. When you compare Q-bot hiring fees and the charges to send a single SMS (or four) to book a spot, why would DW have chosen Q-bot over TextQ. Are the SMS charges to use the system higher than a standard SMS rate? I do not deny that every industry is trying to increase per cap spending and theme parks are no exception to this. I feel it will be interesting to see how the rest of the public respond to q-bot at DW and the new V8 simulator. DW are taking risks and trying out various options, it is up to the customers to now make a call as to whether they use it.

    Klassen - There was some activity in the arena a few days ago and a crew filming, I would expect that the footage will only be a teaser of the show, will have to wait and see what is released
  9. I believe tickets may still be available at front gate although it is not selling via myfun

    Halloween 2008

    Sorry about that Gazza, I misundertsood your comment. I agree that the staff at the booth or over the phone may not have instant data.

    Halloween 2008

    Hey Gazza - I am surprised that you reckon that the parks would not know sales numbers. In this day and age where they plan events based on how many people would be attending, I think the company would ensure that they have access to that data. Not just with respect to theme parks or just Halloween events. I expect 31st to be the busier night, ticket booths may be open to ensure that people do not go back disappointed.

    Whitewater World Media Beat-Up

    I agree that what DW management have done is right and feel that the media have made it into a sensational bit of news With regards to the people who have a disability, I assume that it would depend on the type of issue each individual has for a park to refuse. Eventually, it is all about safety first, for the person riding as well as for others It would be interesting to hear what other parks have to say
