    A maybe is still a maybe. And with him attending IAPPA, there may be hope.

    I feel like this is a good sign. Imagine Movie World owning a B&M and or Gerstlauer!!

    Dreamworld October Update 2019

    So I went to Dreamworld on Monday. Was very quiet. Rides were pretty much walk on all day. but I was rather disappointed in the staff... I send Dreamworld this: “Hi, I visited the park today (Monday 14th October) and I just wanted to let you know some of my observations from today. I love Dreamworld, it is one of my favourite parks in Australia. And I make sure to visit whenever I’m in Queensland. But today I noticed a lot of the staff were rather down and slumpish. I, and many other guests love enthusiasm from the ride operators, it adds to to the ride experience. But apart from the staff operating Sky Voyager, Tower of Terror, Giant Drop and Buzzsaw. The staff seemed like they didn’t want to be there. During the morning, my sister and I were queuing for the MotorCoaster, my sister turned to me and commented on the way the operator was talking to the guests in the queue. Instead of politely asking the guests to move down the line, she was very demanding and monotone, and just being rude to the guests. Apart from that, the other ride operators just did what they had to do, say what they had to say and left it at that, only a small few (listed above) added their own spark to their job, and that really added to the ride experience, small talk and jokes with the guests are a great way to start, and keeping a smile on your face when in view of the guests also helps. I also noticed a lack of speed when it came to ride dispatches. I’m not saying rush. I’m saying, some of the staff took their time doing the safety checks for the rides in between operations, they dragged their feet, no emotion on their faces as if they were waiting to go on break or go home for the day. I’m a huge fan of Dreamworld. And absolutely loved the customer service from the shops and cafe workers, but I just wanted to share my experience with some of the Ride Operators from today. Please give my praise to the ride operators of Sky Voyager, Buzzsaw, Giant Drop and Tower of Terror, They really made my visit 10x better!!“ The next day, I got a reply. “Hey Zachery, thanks for giving us your feedback! It's so important for us to be able to experience the park through our guests' eyes, and to see what they love, and how we can improve. Customer service is a super important part of why our parks are among Australia's most loved attractions, so we'll definitely pass your comments on to our management team for you. We'll also be able to share you positive feedback for some of the staff you encountered during your visit, I'm sure they'll be stoked to have made a positive impact on your visit. If we can assist or clarify at all further, just let us know!”

    Fright Nights 2019

    I went last night also. It, and Doll Haus were my 2 stand out mazes!! I did find they relied on similar scares across the majority of the mazes, so some scenes were predictable. But over all, a very enjoyable night. although the lines were long, the staff moved a lot of people through rather quickly, so save your money on those fast track tickets, honestly, no need for them.

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    At movie world currently. So far this morning. We have been turned away from GL, WWF and AA due to technical difficulties. They expect to reopen them later today. Update: as I’m writing this GL is currently testing.

    Towards the end of the recent ParkChat Live episode Bikash (the current COO of Village Roadshow Theme Parks) pretty much said there’s possibly more to come at Movie Word.

    Fright Nights 2019

    5 mazes?! Wow. That’s actually great news!! I’ve traveled from Sydney the past 2 years just for fright nights and plan on doing it again this year. So I’m rather excited!! And with 3 new mazes. That have to be good. Can’t wait for the announcement. But I’m hoping for “IT”. And just in time for the release of chapter 2!!
  13. I know this is an old ride that isn’t manufactured anymore. But I’d love to see a 1st generation Intamin Freefall in one of our parks. Custom made to be taller and faster. I dunno why, I just find them visually appealing and interesting and would love to ride one.

    Village theme parks extended trading hours

    I thought the same. Half an hour of extra Park time... I was expecting at least an extra hour or two.
