    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    Driving past DW this morning I noticed that all staff are having to park on the eastern side of the carpark (closed part to the highway). Some areas of the carpark have been roped off. This week the bucket for the Pipeline Plunge has finally returned too

    Fright Nights Tribute Store

    @Brad2912 my mistake, this year would have been the 11th year. The family event began in 2006 and then in 2009 they changed it, but it was in 2011 when the name was introduced

    Fright Nights Tribute Store

    This year would have been the events 10th anniversary in the Fright Nights format. Surely they could create some merch to match this and bring in some limited edition stuff from years past
  4. Despite the Universal Orlando HHN event not running this year, the park decided to still open their event tribute store. If you don’t know what it is, it’s a themed store based around that year’s event and they sell merch, etc. With Fright Nights not going ahead I’d love to see Movie World do a similar thing. I was thinking the building to the right of Main Street, just before you walk under the roof, would be an ideal location for said store. It could include some pros from last years event or even previous year’s if they still have them. And sell general merch for the event and possibly old merch from previous years. Maybe it could open for the entirety of October. That allows for people to stilol enjoy a small part of the event this year. @Bikash Randhawa just a possible idea for the park, if it hasn’t already been considered
  5. I’d say since all forms of signage are now gone and have been replaced by “Staff only” signage. It seems we won’t be getting a new show for some time, or ever again

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    But I feel like that pathway is essential for connecting the park. Without it, this area still remains a dead end

    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    Since no one had yet visited/posted about WnW since its reopening, I thought I'd head down to the park and check it out. Firstly, because of the lack of attractions open and it being cold, there were very few people in the park. About a dozen cars were in the carpark. It seemed like their were more staff on than guests. At 11am there were 6 people in the wave pool and about 6 lifesavers watching said people. As you would expect, there were social distancing markers throughout the park Plenty of A frame too Hand sanitising stations like this one were throughout the open areas of the park, with several attached to walls too. Seating has been spread out and there are signs asking guests to not move them. Staff were regularly cleaning them too Plenty of attractions closed too Currently the only attractions open are the Wave Pool, Whirlpool Springs, Junior, AquaLoop, Constrictor, Aqua Racer and River Rapids. I feel like the park is already running at a lose with the amount of staff on vs guests, so I can understand why so much is closed. In summary, they're doing everything we expected. Not much is open. No one is visiting the park. And there are a lot of staff on.

    Wet n Wild GC in 2020

    I visited WnW this morning and here is a look at the scales that were talked about earlier in the year Extensive maintenance work is happening on Calypso Beach And while I didn't get a photo of it, the shade sail has returned to the Black Hole and it appears all works on the structure are now complete

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Looking at all the drawings closer, Interestingly, it’s proposed that the train track path will be altered slightly to go closer to the Giant Drop. From what I can tell on these drawings, the path through the coasters site is there anymore, unless I’m missing it? I don’t mind the snake skeleton ‘themed’ roof structure over the path the ride building. It’s a shame that the station building couldn’t have had theming elements added in. I’d like to see it match the aesthetic style of the BuzzSaw station. I also like the arch/entry for the area, but I think it will look out of place between SkyVoyager and Fairytale Treasures. Pink, rust and then white. That could be an eye sore. Maybe it should have been pushed back further into the land? And will they put the coasters name on the sign or the lands name?

    Also, it says on the final drawing, “wait space for 3 trains”
