  1. Solid case of "I'll believe it when I see it" but a smart first step would be a major WWW expansion (lazy river plus a 2-4 slide tower). Village have been sitting on their hands with WnW down the road, nothing new in quite some time (and it's not uncommon for half of the slides to be closed outside of school holidays) so there is an opportunity there. A great waterpark can be a solid driver of season pass sales and a good foundation for future growth of the dry park. Or it would be misunderstood and the new ride could be perceived as "unsafe" somehow even before it opens. Sadly they are better off keeping their cards close to the chest with the vague "we are working to ensure the best possible guest experience" sort of statements we've already heard.

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    Not surprising, they are hardly going to tear Aquaman out for FN. That one won't be replaced until Aquaman 2 comes out...

    Animal Activists now targeting farms!

    The lack of protein must do something to these people’s brains. Was volunteering down at Collingwood Children’s Farm this week and one of the workers was recounting how some activists came to set their horses “free”... into the wild prairies of inner Melbourne I guess...

    What's gone wrong with SkyVoyager?

    Or at the very least they’d be promoting the pass offer with a pic of the new ride, not one that’s been there over a decade.
  5. Apart from Universal Japan, all of those options have a great selection for young kids. If it was me I’d go for Hong Kong and save the Tokyo Disney trip until your boy is a little older. With a four year old the smaller Disney park will work in your favour and while Ocean Park’s ride lineup is just OK the aquarium and animal exhibits are excellent.

    USS - Expansion Minions and Nintendo

    So the press release indicates that Minions will replace Madagascar, nothing on where NIntendo Land will go though. There is an expansion pad on the New York street but that doesn't seem big enough, can only assume they will sacrifice Waterworld and possibly part of the Jurassic area (maybe Canopy Flyer and the spinner?).

    Sea World - New Attraction 2019

    3D dome attraction makes me think it will be similar to Turtle Trek: https://www.themeparkinsider.com/flume/201204/3025/

    Sea World - New Ride 2020

    RMC Raptor would be perfect, great ride and the right size for the park.

    What's gone wrong with SkyVoyager?

    And in the meantime they are fast running out of product to sell, there are only so many rides you can close before people completely stop bothering (especially the current ticket price). At this point I'd consider the waterpark to be their core attraction, everything else is a bonus...

    Sea World - New Ride 2020

    They heard about Dreamworld's new covered seating attraction and are building a bigger one to compete.
  11. If it was the first addition in a 3 year plan to refresh the attractions (i.e. Sky Voyager, one major flat ride or family coaster, two-three kiddie rides) I would be optimistic. Right now it seems like SV is the "ride most likely to be relocated when Dreamworld inevitably closes".

    Someone is coming to Dreamworld

    Hmm... too early for Santa. What's the odds it's one of the failed Eurovision contenders?

    Movie World Overflow Carpark update

    Wasn't the blue area where the hotel was going to go, or is that in a different carpark?
