    Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster lighting upgrade

    Well it was closed today despite not being on the scheduled maintained. They just had down time a week ago so they must be having issues.
  2. Look man, Ive been here since 2009. I have worked in the theme park industry for years here and over seas. A rep count and post count means someone spends a lot of time on the internet. I just want a source. Having worked for Ardent for many years its the first I ever heard the river was "protected" area. I just want to see a source. I am not doubting someones knowledge but I want to see some proof and the point of a forum is to chat about stuff. Your rep count means nothing to me sorry and for someone who seem to be such a regular on a forum you seem to have no idea how they work. If you dont have an answer to my question dont waste my time trying to put me down and act like some online forum legend no ones ever heard of.
  3. Sorry I dont see what you are on about. I just want a link to a source that the river is a protected wildlife area.
  4. yeah but that's just someone on a forum saying its so. It doesnt make it so. You need to show a source to back up a claim or its just speculation
  5. where can I find a source for that?

    Travel tips? Six Flags Magic Mountain

    Some non ride advice I can offer is to be aware of your belongings. The park has a high rate of theft and does have some issues with teens that hang out there. They have their own police station believe it or not. Its not unsafe but just be sure to be aware of your self and belongings a bit more than you might be used to in Aussie parks. Also it can get cool there even on a hot day. I left LA on a hot sunny day and got there and froze my butt off and had to buy a jumper in the park. You can street view walk the whole park on google as well,-118.5960072,1667m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x80c280a5bffa65c5:0x8f03c1443c734740!8m2!3d34.4253305!4d-118.5972191

    Movie World - The Next Few Years

    The need to put some money into the kids area. It used to be a such a great part of the park and its really old and average now. It never recovered from the looney tunes river ride being taken away.

    Trip Report: La Ronde

    The place is rundown but its still better than any park we have here in Australia. The park closes for a good chunk of the year due to the heavy snowfall Montreal gets. If they spent a bit more on cleaning it up it would be fine. Its a good size park with 40 odd attractions. Gardens and those little things just arent something they worry so much about for a park that sits closed under snow so many months of the year

    What's gone wrong with SkyVoyager?

    At this point its going to be cheaper and easier to make Skypoint one of the new "big rides" and create a park cue that leads to a bus that takes you to skypoint and back. Ardent would probably try this now I think about

    Dreamworld passes - Cheaper at the park.

    I just cant do Dreamworld now. Its depressing walking around what used to be a good park.

    Sea World to reveal $50m spend

    This coaster is going to look awesome across the broadwater from southport/labrador. Just as I was thinking the Gold Coast theme park industry was dead this happens. I am beyond excited for this.
  12. The lack of competition would be the biggest worry. Village would have no reason to invest in new attractions and as you said can charge what they like. Also besides what other people have stated here, Dreamworld make alot of money from overseas. They have a whole division that work just with the Asian market to bring in tour groups and market to Asia in general. Dreamworld do alot of tour groups from China and its a big part of the business.
  13. the best thing is their reply this week on trip advisor to someone complaining nothings open. Read this bit through your mind again.. "This maintenance is vital to keep rides safe and operational." That's the problem, half the rides aren't operational........ Its school holidays and nothings open!!!!

    Gold Coast show 2018

    wow free entry. I wonder what the thinking was behind this. I guess they must of had low attendance last year and are trying to get people back. Great move to the new locations
