    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    This just isn't true and wasn't meant to be this year? Going back through maintenance schedules SE usually gets it's maintenance in April/May as it was meant to this year, and WWF was meant to be back up in June as well. When has Movie World ever planned to close those two rides during the July school holidays for QLD/NSW?

    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    Does anyone know what the specific Government restriction that stopped Maintenance being continued on Theme Park rides during the Covid-closures was? They were receiving Job Keeper right, so couldn't they have kept their staff working at least the number of hours per week that would fulfil the $750?

    COVID-19 & Theme Park Closures

    Like I said Brad I'm not making any comments on the validity of the post I was simply sharing some information we were anonymously sent as it is relevant to this discussion.

    Rocky Hollow Log Ride officially closed

    From Dreamworld's "February Park Update" - "In order to continue Dreamworld’s journey as Australia’s biggest and best theme park, the Dreamworld team has made the decision to retire the Rocky Hollow Log Ride, which opened 38 years ago on 15 December 1981. Dreamworld guests should be assured that this decision to not reopen the ride following its recent scheduled maintenance has been made to allow us to continue developing new experiences for guests while taking proactive steps to deliver a new generation of rides."

    Universal Orlando Resort - Major Announcement

    Apparently the name has changed due to confusion with Fantastic Beasts, interesting if true. Not long till we know for sure!

    Defunctland: The Demise of Wonderland Sydney

    Thanks for the Shoutout, we definitely thought the thumbnail for Defunctland's video looked very similar to ours Such a shame to see the history of such a great local theme park for me to end up as just another industrial estate. If ran correctly Wonderland Sydney could have very well still been open and expanding today, but with Sunway's greed for a quick buck what little is left of the park is left slowly rotting away in a field forgotten by time and the people of Sydney.

    Luna Park Sydney's expansion

    Is it this type of thing? I've seen them in many parks but never seen one actually being used.

    Japan rollercoasters

    Where you basing yourself? Got back from a trip there earlier in the year. We did a few days out in Osaka to do Universal then one the way back to Tokyo did Nagashima Spaland. It's a little out of the way but has some really great coasters including the beast that is Steel Dragon 2000 a ride easily in my top three coasters. It also has some classic old school rides among it's 12 coaster credits including a Togo Twister as well as some cool flats such as a first generation Free Fall (If they happen to be open the day you're there operations can be a bit iffy).

    Fright Nights 2017 Wishful Thinking/Speculation

    As someone who worked in Orlando at the time of this happening, having quite a few colleagues working at HHN that year it was a move that caused a lot of rumour and speculation, however the most prominent rumour was that the owners of the Scream franchise feuded with Universal about whether it be based on the films or the then newly released MTV show. Ultimately they couldn't come to an agreement and had to quickly retrofit a Universal owned property into the already built maze at the last minute thus the return of The Purge.
  11. Their websites truly are terrible and seldom updated, the Movie World Map on it's on site hasn't even been updated to show off Doomsday or the Supervillains area...

    Fright Night 2014

    Interestingly a similar maze is being installed at the EB Expo this year which is on from the 3rd-5th of October, which happens to also be the first weekend of Fright Nights.

    Hollywood Stunt Driver 2

    Interesting choice to bring back the "Rodney" type of character from the Police Academy days, as what I'm assuming will be the comedic relief, rather then a Marty type character. The Rodney type character however requires better acting that hopefully the Doug character will pick up better in time. Other then that looks promising, I didn't have much hope but the green screen gives me faith it might still have a trace of the Movie Making Magic aspect rather then just a Rev head show.
