    New Helicopter Centre Coming to Sea World

    @westical It will have the capacity to store 4 helicopters @pushbutton maybe the current space will be utilised for new purpose/s and to access the helicopter tours, you no longer enter the park. A couple years ago when I had the experience with a friend, we had repurchased the experience, but my friend didn't have a pass, so we entered the park backstage to actually get to the entrance/lockers. So maybe they will be trying to avoid this and will enable for all additional experiences (helicopter, whale watching, cruises, tours, etc) to be accessed in the one area
  2. Recently quite a large area of SWs carpark was fenced off, and from the recent nearmap update (May 7), we can see that construction has begun. I'm not sure if council applications for this can be found, but I can confirm that this area of the carpark will feature an all new helicopter hangar/centre for the park and is due to be completed later this year

    Dreamworld Winterfest

    Well that’s great news for DW then

    Dreamworld Winterfest

    I know VRTP do those events, but they don’t constantly have something going. Lately DW had Cosentino, now ABC Kids Month, next Winter thing
  5. It would definitely be awesome for DW to hold a new world record if they changed the GD to a system like Falcons Fury. But to anyone who has more knowledge at this, would it actually be possible? Is there something particular about the towers structure that wouldn’t make it possible to change the GD? And would this require a complete track change as well, because that could be costly and the park may not see that as worthwhile (I definitely do think it would be) I would love to see a coaster we haven’t see in Australia before. Two types that come to mind are either a Dive Coaster or a Flying Coaster. Personally I think a Dive Coaster would be the best option for DW and could potentially fit into the Gold Rush theme. There is plenty of land available there and would be very unique.

    Dreamworld Winterfest

    Good to see that the park is continuously got events happening at the park. Universal and Disney constantly have things happening as is part of the reason why people go back so much. VRTP don’t do anything like this, so it’s something that could make a trip to DW more exciting and to give reason to keep going back as well

    Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi

    Over the Summer I got to visit Abu Dhabi, and while unfortunately I didn't have enough time to enter the parks, I did make the stop to check out the entrance and foyer area for the park. The entrance I thought had a very good design and style to it, and I will definitely visit the park properly next trip over there. But for now, here are some photos:

    Train is delayed again
  11. This service has now been available for a couple months, and I can confirm, it’s quite popular. Just been the boat go past and there were a couple dozen people on the rooftop.

    Sea World - New Attraction 2019

    Was just at the Broadwater, and I could see a crane within the SW, which appeared to be around the location of the works at COTD

    What makes a theme park?

    A few years ago, I would have said that Australia did have a lot of Amusement parks like Aussie World, Fun Fields, AW, etc. But today, I would say all of these are theme parks. MW and DW are definitely theme parks. SW used to be, but now I would say it’s more a marine park. In comparison to US SW, I would say those ones are theme parks.

    Wow, how awesome it would be to have a Luna Ghost, but my bank account definitely wouldn’t like it
