  1. Adventure World 2018- improvements

    He’s probably referring to: ”If we're going to say that "if every ride has a theme, whether or not it fits with the ride next to it, then that makes it a theme park" then i'd like for you to visit the Sydney Royal Easter Show, one of the finest theme parks that New South Wales has to offer.” 1.I think he’s just venting. 2.We know you can’t get offended. 😜

    Spider webs are gone too.

    Great day in the park, today. Beautiful weather in the early to mid twenties. AW was quite empty, which is surprising because it’s the start of the school holidays and there’s only two weeks left in the season. No wait for most rides, except for the Grand Prix, which was up to about half an hour. Kraken was a walk on. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves, including some kid who had climbed up a tree near rail rider. Someone else managed to get a mat from the slides into the big pool. Geniuses!
  4. I keep getting sponsored ‘articles’ about theme park woes from real estate sites. It’s the same article that has appeared over the last six months.

    Just checked - arm fixed.

    Not to mention these guys.

    @Tim Dasco was really happy about that April Fools’ joke. 😜

  9. Virtual Reality Centres

    ^Zero Latency is now open in Brisbane. Tonight, I took the opportunity to visit Perth’s first multiplayer VR gaming centre - Optimus Gaming. It’s in Balcatta, less than a minute off the Freeway. It cost $50 per person for an hour. You can play with up to 8 people per game. None of us had done Virtual Gaming before, but we had experienced VR at the Singapore Science Centre. It didn’t take too long to go through some basic tutorials. We had a go at Smashbox Arena and Skyfront, which were excellent. Smashbox was a multiplayer team game similar to a hyped up version of dodge ball. Skyfront is a shooter where you can fly through various different terrain - like Ancient Egypt - and kill your friends. I got my butt kicked several times, but I’m looking forward to going back. It didn’t make me motion sick, which was a bonus, but there were a couple of times you felt like you were about to fall over. It’s definitely an experience I’d recommend if you can’t afford your own VR console.

    Spent most of the day at the park with my good pals @Tim Dasco and @ABYSS. The temperature was in the early 30s yesterday and numerous staff said they had 5000 people there. Today’s maximum was in the late 20s and plenty of people rocked up later. They rode Australia’s tallest gyroswing a number of times. We went on Abyss(the ride) three times, where Boden was one of the ride operators. We spent a little bit of time in the pool, rocky rapids and Kraken. I saw the AW wombat out and about eating grass. We fought it out on Bucanneer Battle, Abyss(the guy) nearly lost it on Inferno as the ride op tricked him that the ride was over and we had a noneventful time on the chairlift.
  11. John Longhurst's Dreamworld Stories

    Great stories - he sounds quite the character. Did he talk about getting the Baldwin and how the Australian Koala Show came about? Those animatronics reminded me so much of the Country Bear Jamboree.
  12. U.S Trip Advice

    First thing I would do would be to pick up a copy of The Unauthorised Guides to Disneyland and DisneyWorld(they also cover Universal and some other major parks). They’re also connected to Touring Plans, which have their own website for planning your park days and a YouTube channel. Airline wise, a lot of them used to be hub and spoke, so you had to stop off at random places like Detroit and Philadelphia along the way. They’re usually cheap and cheerful, but don’t expect any extras. I suppose you should try and get a domestic airline that codeshares with your international flights. I have stayed on property at DW, but a lot of people use shuttle transfers or stay in Anaheim when visiting DL.

    Job well done, @Tim Dasco. I'm glad you did that as there are a few rides I wouldn't touch or I'd be one of those people on Goliath. The only park I've done all the rides on in one day was HK Disneyland shortly after it opened. I hope you avoided the spiders on Yarli's Safaris and @ABYSS didn't get too sick on the barrel spin.🤢
  14. It was great catching up with @Tim Dasco and friends - had an excellent night. So good to ride Inferno at night. Really love this ride and it's combination of shots and drops. Lots more people in attendance, tonight. We stayed until the park closed. Got a share from AW's Facebook Page, too - nice!
  15. Dreamworld Annual Pass Pricing

    Village raised theirs after the completion of two rides. What did Dreamworld build -a kids' Ferris wheel?
