  1. 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 Assylum 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.
  6. The thing is, all the new video, the designs, etc, plus probably how it was implemented in the ride had to be signed off by whoever has the rights to scooby doo. So someone else actually thought the new animation and the ride was up to standard to allow them to use it and open to the public. The park would still pay a licencing fee and have it authorised even if its owned by warner bros.

    Aquaman – The Exhibition at Movie World

    You can clearly see the door is not closed even if its 2/3 open. I guess the door and curtain is an attempt to try and keep some of the AC in. The problem isnt a door, it's nobody had any idea what/where it was. If you go to the park now its the front page attraction on the park maps and staff are carrying them/handing them out and making guests aware of the exhibit.

    Aquaman – The Exhibition at Movie World

    normally door open = open. normally door closed = closed. You know, like pretty much every other shop, outlet and pretty much all the rides but the kid section of the park. Maybe they overestimated peoples ability to navigate through life.

    Sea World closed today

    Multiple substations on site and their own feeders from the network thats not providing the suburbs nearby. Thats probably a good indication how much power the parks use. Might not have the rides at seaworld and wet n wild, but pumps and filtration suck down the juice before you even talk about heating or cooling the water too. Hate to think what a daily power bill would be worth.

    Extended hours at Australian theme parks

    In the case of movieworld, they ran white christmas wednesday-sunday. So you'd run into that roadblock until basically after christmas. Someone has done the math and probably worked out the turnover generated isnt worth the added wages. Yeah, parks have big work forces and can roster people to avoid overtime, etc, but people in specialised positions with small workforces like maintenance, managers and park supers would probably generate a lot of overtime. You would think if the frw extra hours generated extra income outweighing the hassle, they would be doing it. Wet n wild used to have movie nights every night of the summer school holidays. Attendance dropped and it went to every friday, sat, then it stopped completely. Park used to be open to roughly 9-930 those nights, but it was apparently canned because the cost vs attendance didnt weigh up.

    The Off Topic Topic

    Played any of the games or seen any of the current generation batman? Textured grey suit that started with AA. I reckon they pinched most of the design elements from Arkham City/origins games though. Smoothest the suit had looked. Origins is pretty close to the look of the current Robin thats in the park too.
  12. I reckon youll find that refers to the queue hall being stripped, and i wouldnt be surprised if it takes longer to be repaired. Its a big area with a lot of either created or molded pieces, so i wouldnt be surprised if it needs another 150-200k spent just on this room. Unless the company finds a pot of gold over the rainbow (maybe aquaman will blow the doors off), it would be like trying to get blood from a stone for a big spend during the final financial quarter. Maybe next year if its one of the first budgeted items to be approved.
  13. As opposed to it sitting as a stripped out shell? You are familiar with how advertising works right? Tell the truth with creative licence. They did everything they promised. It has been transformed. It has new technology, and whether you like them or not, the effects are improved. I think people are remembering what scooby was like in its prime, not what it was like when it closed initially to be gutted. Sets may have looked good but everything else was a mess and what effects hadnt been removed was very hit and miss. To get an opened, functioning ride with working effects, some of which is new technology, combined with a set that looks very similar to old is a infinitely better than the state of the ride the day it suddenly closed and was gutted. The fact it has working effects in multiple areas is a huge improvement than its ever been in the last decade. Its arguably the best it has ever been, even if it fell short of expectation. It might not be what some people want or what a lot on here were expecting, but you have to be a little realistic too.

    Green Lantern work

    Theres motors that drive the train from the brake area into position at the end of the station. The squeals are the rubber wheels making contact with metal as it drives the train through the booster, more so than the wheels on the track. Next time youre at the park, go stand near the station and out in the observation area at road runner coaster and watch it climb the lift. Get similar rubber squeals for a similar reason.
