  1. I don't hate the name Kickback Cove, but I do hate how it's being presented in the lineup. Sounds like Dreamworld are grasping at straws and trying to fluff up the attraction count.

    Wet n Wild Feb 2020 Park Visit and Update

    My last visit to Wet 'n' Wild made me think that the current state of the park is the result of a bunch of quick/rushed decisions. Caribbean buildings and leafy green gardens sit at odds with plain concrete pathways and Generic Pool Fence™. A-Frames were put up advising guests to wear shoes, instead of actually providing a solution to the issue. The corpse of the Zip-Line, the Buggy, and the Mach 5 are all clearly visible. I remember growing up when Wet 'n' Wild was THE water park to visit. After my last visit, I am certain that is no longer the case. The park, like most on the GC, need a masterplan. The failures of the past aren't covered up but left for every paying guest to see. Don't know about you, but I don't think that's a good look for any business.

    Current State of Sea World

    Dr @joz, I wasn't expecting you to come through with that dissertation on the fall on Sea World. When I visited last I started to wonder whether the park has always felt poorly executed and that my childhood memories clouded that view. Your post puts everything into perspective, especially things I didn't even consider. So I guess the next question is "What will bring the magic back to Sea World?" and "Does management want to bring the old Sea World back?"
  8. Sea World used to be one of my favourite parks on the Gold Coast. It has a beautiful location and was home to many of my childhood favourite attractions. A recent trip to the park had me in disbelief as to what had happened to it. A janky carnival ride sits in the middle of the park, the shows just aren't as engaging and entertaining as they once were, and any form of atmosphere has gone. Has Sea World only recently become a mess? Or am I just blinded by nostalgia?

    New bins in Wild West Falls queue

    Isn't this a case where the middle way might be the answer? SDSCNG has received some attention since the relaunch which has been great to see. The Disco Room looks better than I have ever seen and small adjustments have been made to the first few scenes. Yet, there are still issues with the experience. Waiting in the hot sun isn't very pleasant, especially when you enter to realise that half the space is partially unused. The queue and station atmosphere are shadows of their former selves. The ride is improving and evolving, which is great to see, but there is still more to go. Call me the King of Kumbaya, but I think we should call it how it is and acknowledge that it's great to see change and what can still be improved. This is a cycle that will never end; There will always be a way to push it further. Should we all take a bite of the feedback sandwich?

    Justice League’s Future

    It's more of a trend i've noticed on other rides around the park. When something gets fixed on WWF or SDSCNG, I normally find that it's at the expense of some other effects.

    Justice League’s Future

    I noticed the updated Fog curtain the other day. It's great to see this long dormant effect finally operating, but it's a real shame that it's not executed a bit better. Having the projector right in the line of sight doesn't make for a great illusion. I've felt for a while that Justice League has been slipping. As much as I appreciate the park updating the ride, it does feel like "one step forward, two steps back". My prediction for the future of this ride is that more effects will come undone, only to be haphazardly replaced or left to rot.

    Dreamworld December Update 2019

    It's a pleasant area to sit and relax, but I don't think this is the most suitable addition for a theme park. It's fairly generic and reminds me more of Pacific Fair or Westfield Chermside than any theme park. Personally, I don't think theme parks should be striving to be compared to a Westfield. A theme park should be its own being; something unique and unlike other offerings. The "Shaded Seating Area" just doesn't do it for me. Also, there's some shade but not enough to satisfy my pale needs. I think this was a flawed idea from the beginning.
