    Dreamworld Maintenance 2019

    Just be glad we're lucky enough to live in the Gold Coast, where waterparks can be open all year round. That's just not possible in literally most parts of the world! So what if some of the slides are undergoing maintenance during the quiet period? All the slides that are open have little or no queue. It's awesome!

    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    Oh. Must have been me doing the checks on behalf of the council then I guess! It's all very well getting a work experience kid to do critical construction site safety checks, but I think they overstepped the mark a little bit by getting me to do those checks in Adelaide, when the construction site is in Sydney!

    That incident I described was at least 20 years ago, so unfortunately I can't take the blame for the Sydney issues. Maybe try asking Donald Trump.

    Outback Spectacular "Heartland"

    Hmm. Not if you're a member of RACQ! Oh, but the cheapest way is nearly always to get your ticket at one of the theme parks! or at least that's what I was recently told by the lady working at the ticket booth in Movie World, and she did sell me tickets for less than I could have got them on the RACQ site. Think it was something like $80 each from memory. I think it's about $89 on RACQ.

    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    I did work experience with an inspector from a council building department. We went on several site inspections. He showed me a few basic techniques to some of the checks he usually does at sites. Then at one site he just went to a nearby shop and told me "You can do this one!" and I did. When he got back he just said "So everything's good?" I said yes, and he signed off the inspection. I guess he let the work experience kid be in charge for that one! I was basically checking the ground was level witha theodolite. Hope the building didn’t collapse! 😐

    You have no idea how much knowledge I have.

    Very nice of you (sort of) but I've just had a parmy with chips and it cost less than $20. I am open to donations nevertheless.

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    Meanwhile in the real world, I'm about to tuck into a delicious cheese and herb pork schnitzel parmagana with chips right now at Schnitz. That would work.

    I don't know how to win an argument with you and I'm really not at all interested in trying to.

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    It's just better quality food. Quite honestly the quality of even the burgers and fries at the existing outlets is poor. Also, I don't know what makes you think I'd complain if it took 30 minutes for my meal to be served (which I've never experienced at Schnitz) but personally I value the quality of my food more than the speed of service. I guess you just jumped to another wild and pointless conclusion, for no reason, based on nothing, as usual. I know good value and good quality dining is possible at theme parks because I've experienced it. Just not in Australia.

    The Off Topic Topic

    It is Disney so it's reasonable to assume that it features some great effects. Nevertheless, $120 ($30 each) is just way over the top for what's really just a game of mini golf! I might consider up to $20 each maximum if I knew the effects were mind-blowing.

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    It's the sort of food outlet I believe would work well in a theme park. I have a feeling that a silver service a la carte restaurant might not be quite what most guests at Movie World are looking for. Again though, I might be wrong. If I am then I hope people enjoy their lobsters and champagne after watching the "stuntless show" and riding the no-scooby not so spooky coaster.

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    It's an existing building with an existing kitchen. Certainly needs sprucing up, but if there was sufficient demand they'd make the money to pay for it quite quickly. Anyway, this isn't really about maintenance so that's all from me on this!

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    One of the businesses I have managed was a restaurant, so strangely enough I do know what I'm talking about! Have I toured the kitchens at AOS? No, but I have seen them and they're big! Why would they have built AOS with kitchens that are not large enough to prep the food? Anyway. Not my problem! I'm a guest, not the catering manager. As a customer, I have said what I want, and it's good quality food at a competitive price. I doubt I'm the only one who would eat in the park if this was available, but who knows? Maybe I am! If I am the only one (or one of just a small number), then of course, it wouldn't make sense for Movie World to offer such options.
