    'Affinity' Animal Rights Protest

    I wonder how they got in? Did the 20 of them buy day passes?

    Orlando planning

    If you're a Universal Fan, three days isn't overkill. The New Volcano bay water park should be open then, so might be worth a look. Pandora will be open at Animal Kingdom, and is looking pretty awesome, Animal Kingdom is my personal favorite Orlando Disney Park. (2nd to only DisneySea). I'm a thrill head, and not a big theming person, so I rank the Orlando parks like this; 1. Islands of Adventure 2. Universal Studios 3. SeaWorld 4. Animal Kingdom 5. Magic Kingdom (I'm really not the biggest fan of Magic Kingdom, it's very crowded and is really catered towards families with younger kids, but like all Disney Parks, great theming, great staff and ALOT to do here, but only if the attractions acually appeal to you. Get the Seven Dwarfs mine train done first, on a busy day the line won't get shorter until around the start of the fireworks, once the fireworks is over the line will shoot back up again). 6. Legoland (Not Orlando but close enough) 7. Hollywood Studios 8. The two Funspot parks 9. Epcot As a side note, Kennedy Space Centre is pretty awesome, I would personally go here over all the theme parks from Legoland and below.
  3. There's really not many big franchises left, but ones that I thought of that could work would be Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Dragon Ball, James Bond or alternatively going after video game franchises Sonic/Sega, Grand Theft Auto, Final Fantasy. Pretty broad options with video game franchises, but it comes back to whether its acually worth the money and effort. ( And if the creator will even sell the rights). I do think Movie World should look at more diversification in its theming. There is the option of not going with a franchise at all and just picking a generic theme, Steampunk or Pirates ect...

    Giant Drop E-Stop

    Why does ToT need an airbag...?

    No Confidence Spiral

    Does the Giant Drop have a PA system so staff can communicate with guests? I would be surprised if it doesn't .
  6. I don't understand why these keep getting media attention? I used the brakes on my car today and came to a complete stop, can I be on TV too for having safely working machinery?
  7. Has anyone tried Club W? Its interesting because its $30 per person, rather than a fixed amount like a cabana. It also includes snacks and drinks, so its not bad value if its just a few people. Im curious if there are lockers or something because the website says "you can leave your belongings in your designated area" .
  8. Just from what I see the Penguin Expedition claims "the world's first ride-through penguin experience" because the ride itself takes you through the open air part of the exhibit (and the entire ride including the onload and off load take place in the climate controlled area). Where as Empire of the Penguins, the ride transports you to the open air section from outside. It's really just a technically depending on how one would define 'ride-through'. The Penguin Expedition is pretty cool for something that's basically squished into a tiny space at Sydney Aquarium (But its got nothing on Empire of the Penguins). The ride itself is only really 90 seconds, the claimed 2 minutes likely includes the loading and unloading time. When I went it had a 25 minute wait (and the staff were struggling to manage the line). It's good to see not everyone in the general public are scared of water rides right now
  9. But don't you get off the vehicles in the open air part? Rather than "ride-through" the open air zone?
  10. I think the difference here is that you acually go into the exhibit, to get on to the Sydney Penguin Expedition you go through an airlock into the 6 degree enclosure. You're separated by a fence of glass, rather than a floor to ceiling glass wall.

    Lets Talk Wet And Wild Gold Coast

    I know Wet 'N' Wild Sydney previously operated until 10pm some nights, and pretty sure In its first year it was open as late as Midnight. But have been cutting hours because the park becomes dead at night, particularly if it wasnt a hot day.
  13. Movie World should just throw some of their Halloween props in there

    Plus sized guests

    Unfortunately I don't see too many of the rides you're looking for being added. Which is a shame because I do understand where you are coming from, no one likes to be left out and we do have a lack of dark rides. Disney does do a great job of offering inclusive rides (and Universal does a pretty good job to), but it really comes with the large number of people they pull in with their parks. Their high attendance numbers means they are able to provide higher levels of service in areas that the Gold Coast parks are unable to.
  15. I'm surprised they even got that many, why would anyone visit a half closed theme park. I think 6289 people coming out to show support for what is a quiet time of year is a good number. The real test of numbers is from the 26th of december onwards.
