    MW Fast Track price dropped to $99

    Well when universal studios fast pass in Singapore is only $70 AUD. I think the still a joke. Along with Cedar Points fast pass ultimate being $79 USD.

    Sea World lighthouse - Star Flyer replacement

    Star flyer is a typical off the shelf name for this ride type. Plus most carnival rides like this are called star flyer or sky flyer. With that being said there is a 4th unit star flyer which was recently purchased and shipped from the UK to Australia. This one also matches the height of Sea Worlds.

    Projection mapping. What's next?

    Something like Mystic Manor at HKDL is great! Great use of technology and practical theming.

    Adventure World MI4 - 2019

    @Adam C I believe MI4 is still coming for 2019/2020 season. Personally as with MI1-3 I doubt we will hear much if anything until after the park has closed for the season. My personal opinion is either a Lazy River around the front of the park or another massive pro-slide next to Kraken. However we will have to wait and see.

    DC Rivals Hypercoaster Climb

    ^ Rivals wall stage 4: climb it backwards at night blindfolded!
  7. No they wont open it till they install either a roof or a complex harness system.
  8. I found this case study which gives a little inside into Adventure World's Abyss Marketing Campaign. So I thought I would share it. http://www.octopustree.com.au/#!work/adventure-world.html
  9. From all the footage yesterday the gondalas have been installed. It doesn’t really take that long to clad a building and do finishing touches.

    Dreamworld for sale - in Monopoly game

    Surely they wouldn’t have to pay. When they did perthopoly a few years ago Adventure World got on it without paying.

    Sea World lighthouse - Star Flyer replacement

    One could hope for an RMC or a GCI.

    Sea World lighthouse - Star Flyer replacement

    Regarding footings, it depends how far down it is till they reach bedrock. If bedrock is a long way down it means the footings need to be longer which costs more. If bedrock is close to the surface then it’s cheaper. The was the reason why making Kraken at AW a hybrid was to cost prohibitive with bedrock being to over 20 metres deep.

    Universal Studios Australia?

    Lets also look at the budget for most of Universals Attractions lets forget about anything to do with HP. Jurassic Park is around the 100million mark, Transformers is 120million, Revenge of the Mummy is 20-30million plus all of there attractions are all large scale investments compared to our parks. So even a small Universal park will still cost over the 500million-1 billion USD to build at LEAST! Considering Australia's most expensive attraction to date is DC Rivals at 30million I do not see this all feasible at this point in time or for a while. Plus once the park is built they would still need to continue to invest. A park needs to keep building new attractions or something new year after year or people get bored and don't come back.

    Adventure World 2018- improvements

    So here is a trip update from Adventure World: For a non major ride off-season lots of minor things have happened and due to a very wet winter a lot of painting and installation of shade sails have been delayed and are not quiet finished. Animal Kingdom is closed for renovations Surf Shack and Tiki Bar are closed for renovations Rampage has had all new seats installed to try and make the ride more comfortable. These I have found worse. Black Widow has had a complete new repaint. Which is not finished yet. The flooring and signage needs to be finished. This is due to weather I believe. Inferno gondala has been painted. A themed water fountain was added mid way up the hill to Kraken. New viewing area next to skull rock. More shade added the whole way up the hill. Not a fan of how it looks up the top but it was needed. More picnic benches have been added around the park. Animal area closed. New Viewing area Rocky Rapids was closed on opening day but has soon since re-opened. The view from the viewing area. Goliath Black Widow with its new paint and new restraint system. The new water fountain mid way up the hill. The new shading Surf Shack closed for renovation. Kahuna Falls was apparently closed for a few days. But is now re-opened. Not a huge fan of how it finishes at the top. The Tiki bar is getting a renovation. Looks to open soon. The Rampage with new seats. If you look Bounty's Revenge's sign is still visible from under the main entrance building.
