  1. So I did some looking online and it seems that FF has registered for a building permit to build a Wave Pool and associated building. Its great to see the park investing in another attraction of 2 million a year after building 2 new rides.

    How Long Can Dreamworld Keep Dreamworks?

    I don’t think we will see a Universal Studios here anytime soon. Considering there is one in Singapore that is not very far away or expensive to get to.

    Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster refurb

    As someone who went on Mystic Manor a few weeks ago. I can confirm the ride is just an amazing example of a dark ride. The projection mapping and sets do work well.
  4. With the announcement and demolshment of the great escape last year seems a great new announcement of what’s to come. This looks 1000% better than the old park which did have a lot of aging 90s slides. Will be good to see how it turns out. Photos are in the link. Phone wouldn’t let me upload them here.

    Traveling fairs!

    I thought instead of have individual show forms we could just use one form. So the Perth Royal Show rides that are there are as follows: - Wave swinger racked and in postions. - Ranger racked - Nitro racked and in postion - dogems (show west) lowered and roof is swung out. - racy dogems (show west) been lowered into postion. - Rage nearly fully set up - Ghost train set up - Gee whiz is still packed up - Python fully set up - Gravitron has been placed in posction - super bowl has arrived - West Coast carnivals dogems are half set up. - Bethlehem haunt ride is fully set up for the exteria.
  6. Canada's Wonderland is getting a new Dive Coaster for 2019. KennyWood's Steel Curtain Coaster Dollywood's New family area with a new Vekoma Suspended family Coaster. Will be interesting to see how the Carowinds Mack Launch coaster goes or what else is announced over the next few weeks.

    @Gazza Lazy River, Wave Pool same thing. (End sarcasm) All jokes aside I did mean a Wave Pool.

    Fun Fields - New Wave Pool 2018

    I found this article from a while back that confirms a lazy river is coming this season. http://www.starweekly.com.au/news/funfields-to-be-home-to-victorias-first-outdoor-wave-pool/
  9. But do we really think they want to build a rapids like ride? Considering what happened?

    Luna Park Sydney's expansion

    I don't see whats wrong with doing DA's. All theme parks around Australia are required to submit a Development Application and these are then used to issue the Building Permit license. This is a standard procedure for any building and I can't fathom why they think they should get special treatment.

    Traveling fairs!

    No limit went to perth last year instead. Space roller also did perth but hasn't for the last 2 years. Interesting to see the mega drop not going to RMS, will be interesting to see if that comes back to Perth.

    Future Dark Ride at Dreamworld

    These were done at the same time. I just made a thread to avoid a mega topic.
  15. So at the park today with @ABYSS and noticed a few things: Sprinklers have been added to the Rampage queue which was something they were asked to do last week. Inferno tower is back up and should be opening in the coming days. Goliath merchandise Will be available next season. More crow statues have been added to Goliath area.

    Adventure World 2018- improvements

    So creative works over the last month have posted some images on Instagram. Seems like a lot of general presentation works are happening around the park. Considering they spent 9 million dollars last year. Makes sense for them to save there pennies. Worth noting I went passed Adventure World today. Nothing major happening. Although a few minor points: - looks like some new shade added to the top half of the hill and all the way through to the Kraken queue line. - Work happening on the rail rider and Kahuna falls.

    Dreamworld's Peter Brock Experience closed

    You mean Dreamworld is advertising a closed attraction? Hey I see you Buzzsaw 👀
  18. If you look at the plan, the facade, First Aid and so on are coming down due to Asbestos. Hopfully they get replaced with something nice.

    Dreamworld Update 5 August 2018

    Any of these dozens of rides closed actually have any workers working on them during the day. Surely you would do everything possible to have minimal rides closed at all times. But is that just me?

    Traveling fairs!

    I think it also comes down to showmen not making much money these days. So many rides for sale at the moment. Like Sky Walker, Ranger, Space Roller, Nitro and Avengers.

    Adventure World 2018- improvements

    Ok so I finally got around to editing the footage I got while at Adventure World earlier in the year. It's not the best on ride footage but deceant from a go pro.

    Topgolf Gold Coast Construction

    Nah didn't you hear Abyss, Kraken and Goliath are trailer mounted and are off to a new fair this week. Considering AW is a fun fair. 😜

    Needing theme park info for animated TV series

    I know at Adventure World all ride oops and team never do rubbish duties after the park closes. Once all rides are shut down and guests are leaving, they pick up rubbish across the park, car park and boundary roads.
  24. Going with Australian rides: 1. Go Karts - AW 2. Wipeout 3. Inferno 4. AA 5. HWSW .....
  25. So I found this article that confirms MI4 and the MI attractions continuing every 2 years. Fun Park rides on 40 Million investment: by https://www.businessnews.com.au/article/Fun-park-rides-on-40m-investment?destination=node/384958 Key points: $40 Million spent on the park over the last 7 years. They plan on continuing its major capital spends every two years and is considering a number of options for its next one. They have seen a massive growth in attendance. They plan on keep improving. So what do people think MI4 will be? I still think a lazy river or another Proslide.
