  1. May I ask why White Water World is no longer operating annually now?
  2. How fast is this thing supposed to be going again?
  3. Nice snaps, it really has turned out to be an impressive looking structure
  4. 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
  5. I've been playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, The Last of Us, Hollow Knight (Australian game) and Ghost of Tsushima
  6. As Carl Sagan once said ”Luna Park Sydney is a very fun place, in a very small space”
  7. If Movie World ever decides to build a Mad Max themed roller coaster, they have to call it Mad Max: Fury Ride
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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 still enjoy the view the same) Can someone share just how many times they have been on this ride and has their experience of it been blunted over the years and that if you ride it frequently enough that you can actually feel next to nothing when you’re at the top. I just want to know if I should distance myself from it for a while because I have a concern that enough rides could cause a desensitisation and diminish my overall enjoyment of not just The Giant Drop but other rides in Australia because it is in my opinion the most intense ride in the country and probably still will be for many years.
  11. 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
