  1. Adventure World MI4 - 2019

    A lazy river being considered a 'maximum impact' attraction is a bit of a stretch to be honest. Rather have something like a Boomerango, a watercoaster or an Aqualoop complex. Maybe even an Australian first slide like a Proslide FlyingSaucer. They should be going up and fixing Abyss for next season though. That ride was quite rough the last time I rode it.

    I read this article not long ago on how Fred Grubb of RMC will be installing a Raptor into his backyard for his grandkids. Lucky things they are. http://www.cdapress.com/local_news/20180123/best_grandpa_ever

    The problem is that you can't get rid of the pain on SLC's. Instead, the question lies, as to where can you move the pain. Should it be in the head or in the legs? Regardless of what restraints the ride has, something will get beaten up on an SLC. On Kumbak restraints, not only your legs get crushed, but the coaster's jerky transitions beat your legs up rather than your head. Original Vekoma restraints have the infamous headbanging common to many SLC's. The only way to solve this coaster is to get rid of it. It needs to be ripped down in the next decade and be replaced with something far better. I can already start to smell the ride being on its last legs now.

    No way. Raptors fit in a park like Adventure World, not a theme park which has long lines on a regular basis.

    Popped into Movie World yesterday, and DC Rivals definitely lived up to the hype. But I rode Arkham Asylum yesterday as well - man it is not looking good. The coaster is unbearably rough, especially on the legs, and beats your lower half up a shitload. The restraints are so uncomfortable on the legs now it feels like your legs have been cut off. Is surprisingly worse than Cyclone back when it had the original Arrow trains. Like most Arrows and Vekomas, the ride experience has deteriorated. Anyone else find AA unbearably rough when they rode it in the last few weeks? IMO the next capex project should be replacing AA.
  6. Play School Wheel announced - Dreamworld

    Here is a few photos of the attraction in construction phase that I took on my visit to Dreamworld today. This ride has gone up very quickly, and appears to be not that far away from opening. There is some theming and a nice shade cover that has been built around the ride too: The ride was covered up with this fence. It fits the area nicely but looks kind of cheap considering how I can easily see over the fencing:
  7. New Mad Mouse for Luna Park Sydney?

    THANK GOD WE ARE GETTING A NEW COASTER FINALLY Even if it isn't a Eurofighter, and spinning coasters are not my cup of tea. Good choice for a small park like LPS. Have been ripe for a new coaster for well over a decade now. If this happens I will be there on opening day to ride the coaster. I kind of hope that the coaster gets normal sit-down trains as opposed to spinning trains but that is probably wishful thinking. I've never really been a fan of spinning coasters. But that being said the ones I have been on are all Reverchon or chinese ones so my opinion will probably change. I know @Jobe would be very happy with this one. I vividly recall him saying the park needed one of these. On the topic of the old Wild Mouse, that ride is heritage listed by the NSW government. It is not going anywhere anytime soon.
  8. Strange new noises on Wipeout

    Went up to Dreamworld today, and am happy to report that I heard none of these sounds on the ride. It was simply the fact the parts are still new and needed to be worn in.

    Hey guys, I've arrived at the Gold Coast today for a week's stay. I'll be at Dreamworld and Movie World on Monday and Wednesday next week. It is the first time I've been to either of these parks for around 3-4 years. To show how long I've not been at these parks, I haven't even ridden Doomsday Destroyer or seen the new Motorsports area with my own eyes. I've not done DC Rivals yet. Hopefully the ride lives up to the hype and the presumably long wait is worth it. If any of you want me to check up on anything, just let me know. I'll be checking up on the play school ferris wheel and any progress on Rocky Hollow that I see throughout the day. Maybe I'll put some of my photos up on here too.
  10. Log Ride "cage" photos

    I'll be at Dreamworld this coming Monday. Needless to say, I'm kind of glad I'm likely missing out on Rocky Hollow. I wasn't looking forward to getting my 6'5" frame into one of these cages. Could have done with some seatbelts and would have achieved the same thing. But instead, Dreamworld will probably get an array of problems from tall people trying to fit into these cages. No other log flume in the world has these silly things.
  11. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    Saying ABC Kids World should have a coaster in it is a bit of a stretch. The area is pretty much strictly for little kids, no older than 6. Most, if not all of the people in ABC Kids World's target demographic aren't even tall enough to ride the coaster, not even in the sidecar. The park can't really integrate the coaster into the motorsports area or the Dreamworks area either, because of its distance from both of those places. So, for the time being, MDMC will probably sit in its current position, untouched and in isolation, without neighbouring (larger) rides nearby.

    That coaster was a Galaxi coaster, which was a fairly common model built by SDC around the late 60's-70's. It is different to a wild mouse in that it has banked turns.

    The LPS thread hasn't been updated for a while, so I'll need to play catch up with the news on the park, but when did a second coaster at LPS get officially ruled out by management? I thought for all that time when they renovated the Big Dipper facade it was a telltale sign that they would be building a third Big Dipper. . . Quite strange really. Luna Park is ripe for a major thrill ride, it has been for a long time, perhaps they may be getting something good down the road - which will more than make up for the lack of a coaster in this expansion plan. Obviously the lack of room is a major issue here - but in a few years, it won't be an issue for LPS when the Big Top becomes obsolete and stops printing money for them.

    The sign is already out of date. Vikings Revenge has been closed for over a year. Looks like a kid's first attempt at Indesign.

    According to this site, Wild Mouse has been heritage listed by the NSW Government along with Crystal Palace. http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/heritageapp/ViewHeritageItemDetails.aspx?ID=5055827 It is quite sad to think that your local coaster, not to mention the first coaster you have ever ridden, is the last one of its type left in the world. It makes me feel a lot more grateful that I have such a rare coaster on my doorstep. It makes LPS that much more of a special park despite its size - we have one of only a few rotor rides in the world, the only HUSS Ranger and Troika in Australia, and are home to the last operating 1930s funhouse and wooden wild mouse coaster. LPS management have said Wild Mouse isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
