  1. The exit elevator is still there, however there used to be a set of two elevators at the entrance where the second set of stairs are (see the image at the beginning of the thread)
  2. For those interested, I was at dreamworld for an hour this morning and basically all the seats are now attached for tailspin. Looks close to completion besides the queue. Didn't see any noticeable changes on triple vortex though. For those interested, I was at dreamworld for an hour this morning and basically all the seats are now attached for tailspin. Looks close to completion besides the queue. Didn't see any noticeable changes on triple vortex though. Also the location for the new pizza and/or coffee shop is where the fudge shop was. It's all been gutted and blocked off.
  3. Inside the wave they've basically just patched up all the window things that used to be in there and taken out the surfboards etc. so now it's just plain blue tunnel all the way through
  4. Popped in to Dreamworld on my way home from work today to get a ride or two in. Overall i was fairly impressed, but there were a few things about Wipeout that i wasn't too keen on. Firstly the pool at the bottom was hardly full and already filthy. Secondly, the new ride cycle is a fair bit shorter than the previous cycle they were using, and even a little boring. Apart from this though, the water cannons are great and give you a decent soaking if you're sitting on the back. In the front you don't notice it as much. Funnily enough, if you look closely in the video i took today below, you'll see someone lose their phone to the water below. Apparently they could;t go to get it out until the end of the day. Sorry for the shit phone quality... :/
  5. They had a hose attached to the fire hydrant going into the pool as i was leaving. It wasn't turned on but it looked likely it would go in over night. You can see it rolled up in the pool near the extended viewing deck thing in the second photo
  6. So the construction fences are all down and there's two ride operators standing out the front of Wipeout right now.... Sounds like it's opening this weekend!!
  7. There were about five or so that were pretty powerful. There's potential to get a pretty decent soaking if the timing was right.
  8. ^^Haha your soooo funny.... -__- I can't stop laughing...
  9. Don't know if anyone has seen this but this has got to be one of the funniest reactions to the Giant Drop I have ever seen. No idea what they're saying but it's funny as hell https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRN7up6HcrU
  10. Popped into Dreamworld on my way home from work today to check progress on Wipeout. I can confirm that the water sprays are coming back and were being tested today. Although i have no clue where the water was coming from because there was no water in the pool under the ride. The ride did a few random bits of testing. One time with both arms rotating in one direction for a solid 15 mins occasionally locking in the car and doing a flip. The other cycle was the cycle used a few years back when the motor was breaking and a tamer cycle was used. It didn't do any flips and kinda just moved around. Looked very uneventful and boring. The whole area looked good though. I asked a staff member and they said that they were just having issues with the locking mechanism on the gondola that makes it do flips, but as soon as that was fixed it would be ready for opening. Won't be long now for those interested it was testing this cycle today but without the flip at the end because the locking mechanism wasn't working properly.
  11. I agree ninja, i think the area is way too small for a sky fly and the two booths is a bit strange. Probably isn't going to be a Power Surge, but you never know. Wipeout's looking good though, although it is taking an awfully long time to get back up and running :/
