    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.

    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.
  4. Going with Australian rides: 1. Go Karts - AW 2. Wipeout 3. Inferno 4. AA 5. HWSW .....
  5. 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.

    Falling Standards at Our Parks

    As someone who works in the fast food industry, this is very important for most customers. The amount of complaints from customers if you don't greet them instantly and friendly, is mind boggling.

    The Off Topic Topic

    What annoys me the most is that is not in any way a roller coaster.
  8. 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.

    I did notice that last time I went, next time I go I shall see if it's been fixed properly. It seemed like it had just snapped off and was a temporary fix. Hopfully it's better now.

    XXI Commonwealth Games: Gold Coast 2018

    Do keep in mind VR are providing studios for the games, yes the government did pitch in some coin for them. But I would have thought they could have made a deal with the leasing of those studios and advertisement.

    XXI Commonwealth Games: Gold Coast 2018

    I would have thought VRTP would have made a deal with the sound stages to get their names used. But seems like either to much money or not worth it.

    Thunder River Rapids Incident Coronial Inquest

    I would say it's better timing now. The coverage is a lot less than it would be as the media are already full with the Games stuff to notice it.

    I think the more unbelievable part is picking Joondaulup for the location. There is no room in Joondalup for a Disney land to even be considered.

    Fun Fact, that Graviton has been traveling around Western Australia since it left Dreamworld with Mitro, West Coast Amusements until it was sold last year.

    Buzzsaw stoppage - 22 March 2018

    In other breaking news, when I put my foot on the break my car stops. Honestly do the media camp out at the parks? I know some people who were at the park today and didn't even know about it.

    So adventure World have added a special $5 season pass upgrade to their website. You must buy online for this to work. Seems like a great idea to encourage season pass sales with only a month left.
  23. So I was looking on Adventure World's Website and they have posted some information regarding their Easter Event that takes place during the day. I think its good to see the park adding all these events to it line up to try and post attendance throughout non peek season.

    I managed to spin the Barrels a little to much that he said he wanted to do Yarlis Safari to recover. (Coming from a person who can do Rampage 3 times in a row)

    So went to AW today with @ABYSS and we decided to do an idea i got with a conversation with @iwerks. I have never done everything at the park in one day. But today I decided to see if you can do everything in one day including the pool, all kahnua falls slides and animals. We managed to finish it by 4:15pm. It was fun and it proves how much there is to do at the park. Anyway a few things from today. The park fairly busy for this time of the year. With 33 degree weather and the PMH Big Kids day out event happening in the park today it defiantly had some crowds. Goliath had someone yack on it 2 times within half an hour. Abyss was running 4 trains till about 2pm when they removed one. Was cool to watch and Inferno is back! The park is looking good and was great to see everything open again. The new High Voltage Power Main building. The High Speed internet to the Go Karts. (Nah just more power stuff added last season) * Oh and great customer services today by Jacob in Dragons Kingdom. When some people in line were talking and wondering what Kraken's wait was. He called the Kraken team and asked and got an answer to them. (But kudos to all the team. There all great and happy all the time) However its one thing I think the park could really benefit from is having at least the major rides have digital waiting signs which display the waiting time. Then next to the park map's put a summary of the main ride wait times. This would really avoid having people complain about long queues if they know what there getting into before.
