  1. Here’s a few pictures I took of it yesterday
  2. The only thing I don't like about The Gold Coaster (probably since the original trains were replaced by Hot Wheels) Is that it doesn't make the iconic Arrow *cling clang* noise as it goes up the lift hill. After Sea Viper was demolished, it was the only coaster in Australia that did it
  3. I've been playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, The Last of Us, Hollow Knight (Australian game) and Ghost of Tsushima
  4. As Carl Sagan once said ”Luna Park Sydney is a very fun place, in a very small space”
  5. If Movie World ever decides to build a Mad Max themed roller coaster, they have to call it Mad Max: Fury Ride
  6. I'm doing a hospitality course at Dreamworld and a staff worker said they're aiming for a December 2021 opening and that you should expect the majority of the ride structure to go up by about July next year
  7. I strongly agree with your first point I also like the second but I don’t know how they would be able to do it or where to put it (maybe the old blue lagoon site) Yout third point is insane.
  8. For a rough estimate I’ve ridden The Giant Drop about 25-30 times total in my life since I first rode it as a kid in 2006. I’m currently doing a hospitality course at Dreamworld working in the Preston Campbell cafe at the back of the park and usually on my way out I’ll give it a ride. Over the past 2-3 weeks I’ve rode it about 10 times and one thing that I’ve noticed is that it doesn’t give me the same sense of fear it used to. Over a few years now I’ve noticed that my sense of overall thrill and anxiety (healthy of course has diminished with every time I’ve been on it (though I st
  9. Yeah I can definitely see that being the more realistic outlook. Mack wasn't really on my radar when it came for big sprawling coasters, I only knew them for their wild mouse rides, but Rivals completely changed my outlook for what the company could do reminding me of Blue Fire which I didn't really know about until Rivals opened
  10. If MW are thinking about replacing it, it has to be a B&M. Australian coaster fans have wanted one for years and now is the perfect opportunity. Better yet, make it a flyer themed to Batman and add an updated VR experience just like what they did previously
  11. I know this is completely unrelated, but can someone tell me which year exactly did the Dreamworld logo change from the old logo to the logo we have now. I know it was sometime in the early 2000s but don't know exactly when
  12. A drop tower would be more appropriate to put in LPM because of it's small ride footprint
  13. I got stuck on Rocky Hollow Log Ride once when I was 9. I was with my Dad and we were just about to crest over the top of the conveyor belt when the ride shut down and we were stuck there for about 30 minutes. Next week after that Dreamworld offered us a free tour of the park and a worker there at the time called Cameron took us past the queues and through behind the scenes passageways to get on the rides. It was a great memory and is proof of just how friendly and great Dreamworlds staff are, or at least what it was like back in 2006
  14. So what this article is trying to say is that Dreamworld will stay in financial jeopardy long term after this ride is built. Years even?
  15. Also one more thing that is on my mind, maybe someone here can give me a legitimate answer. That black shade that is attached to both gondolas on TGD that goes over the heads of the riders. Why was that added in the first place, because in all the pictures of the giant drop in its early years before about 2003-04. That black shade is nowhere to be found which must mean it was added later for some reason. Was there some incident in the ride's early years that lead to the addition of it. Also note in the picture there are no safety railings above the top part of the vehicle
