    Disney Wharf at Sydney Harbour

    Thank you for the love and support ❤️ It's lovely to be scrolling through Parkz and encounter somebody recommending your own video! Also, I absolutely agree with your username...
  2. It's a shame that the current norm for Australian theme parks when talking about something that is less than positive is to just go hush-hush. Village is guilty of doing the exact same thing after they demolished the interior of Scooby Doo and a large number of guests were left confused and frustrated. When I visited in the peak season last year, I don't think I saw anybody come off that attraction looking satisfied. Our theme parks need more transparency. They're worried that they'll be giving us ammunition to attack the parks, but all we want to know is what on earth is going on. Radio silence isn't an option in this day and age.

    E-Stop on Flying Dinosaur at Tokyo Universal.

    If there is one place I'd be happy to be evac'd, it's Japan. I could imagine the process would be very orderly and professional.

    Dreamworld Hotdog stand

    The hotdog stand is a highlight of my trips. Whenever I go to Dreamworld I make it my first attraction to stop by. I'm surprised it isn't part of the BIG9 as everytime I see it my heart races and my excitement builds. The hot dogs from there are okay.

    Dreamworld Annual Pass Pricing

    I don't even live near the Gold Coast but I'll still probably renew my pass. It's nice to have the luxury of just popping into all the parks when I'm up on a work trip, etc. Even if I only go twice, it's still cheaper than two 'one day passes'. Also I can never have enough valid season passes in my wallet. They make for great conversation starters!

    Something new from Wonderland History

    I can't deny a beer with the boys! I'll definitely take you up on your offer! I know there are no hard feelings. There are none on my end as well.

    Something new from Wonderland History

    Always nice to see some old bits and bobs recycled for people to enjoy. I would love to visit, but I feel like the Wonderland History team might be waiting for me... They're like elephants. They remember.

    They banned me on Twitter because I said that starting a witch hunt on disabled people isn't a great idea. Dude be cray.

    The Off Topic Topic

    Yeah my general rule is one rider = one cycle for single rider. If there are 10 people in the SR line than expect to wait at least 10 cycles. I find it very rough. It's one of the few rides on the GC that I'll just ride once and that's enough for me. And then there's Hot Wheels which I'll ride once in my lifetime as I enjoy not having roller coaster endued scoliosis. To be honest, when I went to WBMW and rode AA about 3 - 4 years ago it was still rough. It's just aged really poorly and is possibly the weakest attraction on their line-up (apart from Scooby Doo's Nothing Coaster).

    The Off Topic Topic

    I went on a Friday smack bang during school holiday season. We immediately joined the Rivals line after getting into the park and I'd say we waited about 10-15 minutes once we got into the line itself. Once the day picked up the line got smashed up to about 60 minute waits (the sign for which is annoyingly placed inside the queue) and then slowly declined over the day. If you can, go single rider. My fiancee loved going on Rivals, but only once. After that I was on my own and utilized single rider as much as I could. On this note, I also imagine that the best time to do Rivals would be holidays as they are running it with two trains and an optimal number of ride ops. I can imagine it being like Superman during the off-peak where it takes 3 ride ops to do the job of about 6 and they only cycle one train making it a 45 minute wait for a queue of 100 people.

    Play School Wheel announced - Dreamworld

    I have an S8 but my pictures look like a bloody Jackson Pollock when it's been sitting among my sweaty thighs all day in my shorts. All pictures are appreciated.

    Seat size on Hypercoaster

    Amazing job on bringing your weight back down mate, congratulations!

    Seat size on Hypercoaster

    Ever been to Japan? I'm not a huge dude, but I'm a short guy with a big belly. The restraints in Japan hated me. I was always like one click away from being too large for basically every coaster in Japan. I'd have the ride ops jumping on my restraint to push it down. Weirdly enough my mate who is much taller than me and basically the same weight was perfectly.
  14. Good read! The log flume additions are extremely confusing to me. I'll need to ride it or see them operating with it to see what they're honestly trying to do. I feel the human element will be the real test of these frames as I can see teenagers swinging on them and using them to do stupid tricks. Also the pinching is going to be a hot topic of one star review mum's on TripAdvisor...

    Theme Park Maintenance 2018

    Jetstreams within the actual ride itself? What affect do they have on the ride itself?
