    Gold Rush to get aviation theme at Dreamworld?

    That’s great if true, just in time for the school holidays. But the website still says it’s closed with no reopening date. And with the large amount of construction happening around the entrance I can’t see it happening

    DC Rivals Hypercoaster Climb

    Just looked at the availability, Sunday has 2 spots left, Monday has 6 and the rest have 8. It’s proving to be very popular 😒

    Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster refurb in Nov/Dec 2017

    They won’t get rid of the screens because the queue area is used for private evening events, and they use those screens. But it would definitely would be good to show multiple videos or something different. They won’t show cartoons because it doesn’t fit into what the ride is based around (the film), but it would certainly be great if they did play classic Scooby cartoons

    Gold Rush to get aviation theme at Dreamworld?

    Great to hear about BuzzSaw A number of kids rides were moved around when they changed from Nickelodeon to Dreamworks

    Gold Rush to get aviation theme at Dreamworld?

    We have to remember that it was just something an staff member said. It could just be speculation or misunderstood.

    Gold Rush to get aviation theme at Dreamworld?

    I definitly don’t think they should make that whole area themed around the airport. They should just keep this one attraction as airport style, it’s on Main Street, no issue. But then if they expand it to BuzzSaw, then that affects the theme possibilities for any other future attractions. I think they should stick to the Gold Rush/Rocky Hollow theme because it won’t affect continuity as much and connects to the log ride and GD, and then they can save money from changing BuzzSaw
  10. I looked through my archives and couldn’t find anything. I do remember the entrance was covered in scaffolding and sheeting, but don’t remember the print of Wayne’s Manor being on it

    Fright Nights 2018

    But maybe they did try and for licensing reasons they couldn’t have it. I’m sure there have been dozens of movies and franchises they’ve tried to get for a maze but just haven’t been allowed to

    Dreamworld General Updates 2018

    Wow that’s weird being able to see straight through to the LEGO store. But it looks like they are doing major ground works where river rapids were
  13. Sad to see it go, but it really was expected and meeded

    Movieworld Kids Area Expansion?

    They could, but that rivals road isn’t used everyday. That one you are referring too is, so I can’t ever see them using it for guests. They could construct a shed there, move the contents of the other half driving school building into that new one instead

    How Long Can Dreamworld Keep Dreamworks?

    When Dreamworks opened at DW Universal already had the rights to that brand and characters, so it isn’t a question of how long they will be able to hold onto it. It’s how long is their contract for it, and whether or not it will be renewed

    Movieworld Kids Area Expansion?

    From memory that is an office building
  21. As @Theme Park said... does anyone know why Zipline never operated (or if it did, for such a short period) And why is it still there VRTP? And the Frozen Coke stand is getting a refurb And I think they should really just remove this now pointless shelter to open up the area a little
  22. The one major thing I hope DW do is the staff get special uniforms for this ride to really enhance the experience. If it’s just the standard uniform then that’s definitely a missed opportunity
