  1. We’re disregarding restrictions and money and we want to see a raptor and not a T-Rex?

    Wipeout is closed for good (retired)

    Gee thanks DW, a shaded space is exactly what I’ve been asking for for years. Don’t worry about replacing wipeout, I’m sure every guest would prefer a shaded space over a new ride. (sad to see it go, especially since it was not long ago when it got that spiffy makeover)
  3. I don’t see MW buying used rides (even though a pendulum ride like the claw would work great there), but down the road SW did just add a travelling ride (and did very little to dress it up). If they continue that way and DW does bite the dust, tail spin and shockwave could fit well at sea world - they wouldn’t require much, if any retheme and their lower capacity (for tail spin mainly) isn’t much of an issue for the park.

    HWSW's train is stuck ...

    You are right - I spoke out of turn and I apologise for the baseless statement I made. I have been bashing DW a lot lately, and it may be time to pull back. With that said, I still think the ride is old and retiring it wouldn’t hurt the park much. Unlike some of the other old and decaying rides at the park, I personally don’t think this brings much to the park any more.

    HWSW's train is stuck ...

    Surely this is enough to make the park realise it needs to go. The only rides that this happens to are Chinese knock offs. If a ride needs a certain weight to run it’s probably too old to still be operating. Do DW even get the attendance these days to find 6 people to ride at a time?
  6. Even in the falling apart state it’s in, it’s still possible to bring Dreamworld fully back to how it used to be with the right owner. I’m sure there are still people out there who would buy it if Ardent gained some competency and put the park on the market.
  7. Ardent is well over due to get out of the theme park industry. I’m embarrassed to see the way they run dreamworld. Ardent, please piss off away from our theme parks.

    One product/service you would like at our theme parks

    We need better communication between the parks and the public. For example, DW needs to give us some indication as to when we can expect SV (because “the coming weeks” just ain’t cutting it). Similarly, MW have been tight lipped about a lot of their recent projects, a bit more open communication would be great instead of keeping everything secret. We didn’t hear any confirmation of DC rivals until just a few months away from opening (while most parks would announce something that big a year or even two years ahead of time). Similarly the Aquaman exhibit was a big secret until only a few weeks before opening.

    Future Dark Ride at Dreamworld

    If they opened it now, it would give them a couple of months to iron out any technical and/or operational issues. The only major benefit of waiting until the next school holidays is cost cutting (which is what DW does best...).
  10. What’s your secret mate? Can you tell us all how you’re living in the future like that? Last time I checked it’s still summer...

    Arkham Assylum Facade work

    I’d love to see a Huss top spin, I’ve only ridden one myself (and it’s commonly agreed upon that it’s the best top spin out there) but I found it a lot more enjoyable than Wipeout - even though they don’t have the lateral movement Wipeout has they are a lot less controlled and hence more intense - even though it would look similar to Wipeout, I reckon a Huss would provide a different enough ride experience to make it a great addition for MW, especially if they give it a great theme like some other top spins have.

    Dreamworld reduces operating hours

    Ardent needs to stop beating around the bush and sell Dreamworld to someone who actually knows how to run a theme park. These extended closures are probably just devaluing the park further.
  13. Charlie and the chocolate factory (the 2005 film) was a WB film, while Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was a Paramount film, to clear up the confusion. And as far as I remember the 2005 movie doesn’t have the song in it (might be wrong though, it’s been ages since I’ve seen it).
  14. Tell that to coasters like lightning rod, millennium force, dodononpa, time traveller, and the beast (I could really go on forever with a list of groundbreaking coasters, these are just a few that popped into my head). ToT was groundbreaking at the time and DC Rivals was certainly groundbreaking for Mack.
  15. TPR have once again opened their CoasterPoll, based on the Mitch Hawker poll. Last year DC Rivals would've placed in the top 30 but didn't get enough votes to get counted so if we have more Aussies voting this year we might be able to get DC rivals on the list! (and potentially bump up a few of our other great coasters) https://coasterpoll.com/
