    Dreamworld Winterfest

    They just threw labour at it to work into the night to get rivals open roughly when they said they would after that delay. I imagine if they announce a big deadline with a slick looking commercial, if it's looking like running over again on another build they'd get the lights up and crack the whip 24/7 if they could to make it happen, rather than shelve the build up like what has happened with sky voyager.

    Accident on Overseas Log Ride injurs 3

    You couldn't do much about gravity though, once its at the top of the lift hill and driven out. Depending on how it's fed, it might lose water level pretty quickly from the runout so the boat isn't slowed down enough to float in the remaining water that was just turfed out when the boat came screaming through. The cages would stop people ending up with the weight of a water logged boat on top of them. Im not even sure if a boat could roll with the cage, given the width of the trough, might just end up on its side. The ride wouldn't even be open if the cages were designed and implemented "in house". Not after what happened. Goes double for them being designed without the possibility of the boat rolling over. Had to have been designed with a worst case scenario of it flipping. Government regulators and assessors would have been so far up everyone's arse they would have been chomping at the bit to scrutinize their other water ride and discover any other dangerous flaws or unsupported modifications to let something like crushing by the cage structure or drowning while trapped within go unnoticed.

    Sea World to reveal $50m spend

    Waiting to build on reclaimed ground is often to prove it's stable. Most councils usually have some sort of time frame attached where the site is surveyed on top of the engineers report before it's built on. What sort of land was built upon, water levels, courses, fill type, etc, it can all change . Maybe instead of compact, "settle" would be a better word? I wouldn't at all be surprised if it was a money thing for seaworld though. Plans in the works and budgeted that might have ended up elsewhere, then with the accident at dreamworld, the hit to the industry, etc, might have put them back 5 or so years vs what was planned.

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    Last lot of holidays it was out of service when we went. Maybe its been removed for repair rather than permanent removal?

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    Where did i say you dont inspect it? I said you would inspect the track yearly. That means getting in a boom and getting up and close with it. Thats not crack testing though. Big difference. High speed/high load sections, youd crack test yearly regardless of if it passes a visual inspection or not.

    I don't think you would need to go so deep with inspections for every bit of track. The high speed, high load/force sections would probably be crack tested and inspected like that, but every other bit of track is pretty much like the frame in your house. It's not expected to suffer enough fatigue to cause failure, so a visual inspection is all that's probably needed, then take it further if you find something while looking.

    Does copyright law in australia require you to maintain your ownership of it? As in, you have to actively protect the use of the copyright or it sets a precedent and i think ownership can be challenged under the guise of the ownership has been abandoned (if its not being challenged)?

    The council did put money into restoring that carousel. It was closed for awhile previously and lots of things were dismantled. With the change in scrutiny for everything amusement related after dreamworld, id say either the original design of the ride or something about its installation doesnt meet new standards or recomendations and its either too difficult or too costly to bring up to the requirements. Hence the closure or the council putting it out to tender. Not prepared to take on the liability in its current state. Its a pity it hasnt been in place for longer though as the horses may have remained wooden. Would have meant it was worth a considerable amount of money, enough to probably save it.
  10. You guys are being a little harsh. This is perhaps the first sign of the park even attempting to be proactive and implement something thats probably going to be recommended in the coroners findings, well before the state government bangs their drum about training standards. If it means the staff actually get a proper orientation and theres some form of competency based training thats actually delivered and signed off on, then it can only be a good thing.

    What's gone wrong with SkyVoyager?

    At this point im starting to believe they spent 25 million on hype and 2 million on making us think they built a new attraction.

    Arkham Asylum Facade work

    Replacing like for like it seems more than anything. The facade has been up there since lethal weapon, i imagine a fair bit of rott and water damage makes its way into the timbers and reaches a point where it needs gutting and replacing.
