  1. The first ride closure for maintenance for this year has been posted: Justice League 3D - Closed for scheduled maintenance on Monday 19th February and will re-open on Monday 12th March 2018
  2. Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi

    The park will officially open July 25. There are 29 rides and attractions, and all are now listed on the parks website. And the entire list of characters roaming around the parks areas is available, and there is certainly a lot of them. https://www.wbworldabudhabi.com/en General Admission is 230AED, about $80 Annual Pass is 695AED, about $240

    But it gets to the point where it becomes overboard, and everything is in bubble wrap and things become less fun or annoying. Most of the changes made at DW already have made some of their rides more annoying than they are worth. So hopefully this stream of in house changes stops. Yes people died, but im sure the chances of something this major ever happening again is very very unlikely. There is being safe and secure, and then there is just being stupid.
  4. VTP Annual Pass Changes

    I'm not sure how long this has been like this, because MW and SW single day tickets used to be the same price. But now SW is the same price as WnW
  5. Storm and Jet Rescue free locker hire

    Storm and JR also now have 1 hour free locker hire
  6. Sea World Jelly Fish 2017 Attractiion

    The SW website now says that "Sea Jellies Illuminated exhibit opening later this year."
  7. The Off Topic Topic

    Awesome news. The ride used to have 2 trains, until the leathal weapon had that crap refurb, changing the queue arrangement
  8. Wild West Falls (pre - 2003) video

    @Roachie check out this potato
  9. A Quiet Place, not that concept would be a good idea for a maze
  10. Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2018

    Well then....
  11. Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2018

    For the first time in a year, everything is open at Movie World
  12. Glubbo's 2005 DW & MW Photos.

    Out of curiosity, what is the Superman actually made out of?
  13. Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2018

    Does seem strange though as the Storm did just close for all of Feb and doesn’t usually close again, so maybe this is linked to the removal of VR
  14. The Off Topic Topic

    I remember the old Toboggan at Wet n Wild and how fast and awesome it was when I was a kid. They had a lift hill, so you didnt have to carry the toboggans up. I vaguely remember how heavy they were, but surprised people had to carry them up at DW.
  15. The Off Topic Topic

    This building is the Dreamworld Studios, and was used for the crowd during the LIVE shows (eliminations, etc). Large black curtains were hung at the back. The housemates would get a golf buggy ride to this when eliminated. And yes it was quite a walk for guests when the house opened to the public, and you would get to walk through the Blue Lagoon area. You can see parts of the walk to the BB House in this Parkz Update in 2012: https://www.parkz.com.au/update/2012/12/21/308-Dreamworld_December_2012.html
  16. The Off Topic Topic

    Do the people who try to sell/sign you up to stuff at MW just not work on Sunday's or are they not at the park anymore? Because they were no way to be seen, and the umbrellas are removed also.
  17. Wild West Falls finally reopened!

    Signs are out the front saying its in technical rehearsals And as you walk in there is this sign The way the queue line is organised now, with the introduction of the single rider is much simpler and better Most rides had a very short queue this afternoon, but WWF had a massive queue (no time was shown, but the queue nearly went to the entrance) As stated, there has been new concrete added. But the only majorly visible section is at the beginning, as you pass under the staff walkway. None of the screens/projects were working, and there was less sound/music through the Old Faithful and ghost town, and some of the effects in this area still aren't working properly as stated. One thing I did take notice of today, which I havent before is the signage through the lift hill doesnt make any sense at all. It adds theming, and if you don't read them all its good. But I recommend everyone to actually read them (on both sides) next time and you will see what I mean. Some of the things they say include: 'No Entry', 'No Drinking', 'Break area ahead', 'Mine Shaft Entry'. They are very contradictory. Not complaining because it isn't anything major, just a side note.
  18. Wild West Falls finally reopened!

    The bridge scene was changed during the major refurbishment in 2016
  19. Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2018

    It's great they did all of that stuff, but a shame they didnt fixed the effects (Unless they have, and it was just today they were having some issues because the road only just reopened). Was the ride open all day and has it officially reopened now, or was it more of a test day? And won't officially reopen until the weekend?
  20. Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2018

    Good to hear they've had a single rider line. Well that sucks, I would've thought they would all be working after closing for so long. Maybe todays reopening was a test to see if the rides systems were working and then they will fix those smaller issues Probably to make sure it all works Could that be something they've done on purpose maybe, if they are concerned about people climbing out of the boats
  21. Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2018

    WWF has reopened, and apparently nothing has visually changed
  22. And there isn't really any way that FN will ever compete with HHN, because Universal have more money, space and rights to movie/show/character licensing. And now days, they have about 10 houses (mazes) at the event.
  23. Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2018

    @Rollercoaster_Lover that doesn't make any sense though. It's a sea creature attraction, which has rarely closed for month than a month, and most definitely not for 10 months. And winter on the Gold Coast definitely doesnt go for that long.
