  1. Rumours have been flying around for years, the grapevine says still on the cards. Still I don't know as many grapes as I used to so pinch of salt lol
  2. I'd have thought lower attendance during the week of the games would've been pretty well offset by studio hire for last 6 months and/or being gifted a whole new Sound Stage that they didn't have to pay for. The reality is you are going to take a hit when trying to readjust the market. It's a pity that Village Roadshow is in a mess because that affects massively how much they can ride it out. I've said about pricing that they should have kept the lower price point except added block out dates in addition to the price hikes as part of the ween people off the cheap tickets process. The weather is beyond their control, but that happens. The big story to me is they've lowered the SW one day admission ticket. That park's failure is 100% their fault. Oh but they have a plan, they're going to relocate the ride from another neglected vrtp property to it which will apparently help somehow?
  3. Dreamworld Annual Pass Pricing

    Whatever it takes to get butts through the door.
  4. Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2018

    Yikes, thats some pretty bleak shit right there.
  5. XXI Commonwealth Games: Gold Coast 2018

    What oppitunity? The Coast is deserted. I think by opening the doors to athletes and Volunteers the answer would be 'Yes'. Have they taken advantage of the unique marketing oppitunity? No, of course they haven't but when was the last time you saw any creative marketing effort from the parks? FWIW I still think they need to get a group of 8 silver medalists together and race them down the aquaracer.
  6. The Off Topic Topic

    Sorry 250-300? Really hope that's a typo
  7. VTP Annual Pass Changes

    I don't like the idea of discounting too heavily, but I do like the idea of a pass which doesn't include WC or Carnivale. There would be a lot of tourists who would have no use for such add ons, so an add on free ticket gets my stamp of approval.
  8. Adventure World 2018- improvements

    Not sure what point you're trying to make here or what your evidence is trying to prove? But 2 things: 1. DC Rivals is the tallest fastest full circut coaster in Australia. No disclaimers or anything, that's legit what it is. 2. Who said Movie World's marketing was good? I hate to piss on your bonfire but Goliath's 'record' is totally bogus. I bet it's a great ride, it looks to suit the park well; Adventure World looks like an awesome park, but don't get butthurt that someone called your record dumb. In other news, Cyclone holds the record for the tallest fastest coaster* in Australia/New Zealand! *Only counting S&S Arrow coasters By the way I don't think you're a bad person because you're wrong, have a really good Eastee
  9. Adventure World 2018- improvements

    Lol no offense but if you need to cite the designer, it's a rubbish record. News just in, Arkham is the tallest Vekoma Rollee Coaster in Australia 👍🏻 All this sort of marketing does is devalue records as a thing, like all those super niche Proslide records. Just market something for how good it is rather than some obscure fact that not even autistic super fans care about. Joz - Autistic super fan.
  10. The LEGO Movie - 4D Experience

    Is it a new movie or reused clips from The Lego Movie? Also Road Runner was by far the best film in the Roxy since Sherek. Sad it's gone but it was time. Also SW still has a 3D cinema for now. I only mention it because I think VRTP may have forgotten about it?
  11. I agree with this. Blind freddy can see what a lot of the issues are. In your opinion, what's preventing Village from acting on the issues they can act on? Can they see the issues and are unwilling to act, or are they blind to their ongoing failings?
  12. You called Skeeta ignorant. You literally insulted someone while bemoaning people being insulting.
  13. Cue complaining from people who don't have friends to split the cost..
  14. Dreamworld Corroboree - "Stage 2"

    Be interested to see what it looks like in person, but seriously not rating it based off the photos. It looks like something out of Changing Rooms.
  15. Dreamworld Annual Pass Pricing

    This seems like a real bonehead move. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad the 'race to the bottom' appears to be at an end. But the thing is with Village raising their price from $99 they've kind of given DW the wriggle room and a spot in the market. DW can now park themselves at that $99 price point and get all the people who will inevitably balk at how expensive Village are now. Happy days, they were flogging passes off significantly cheaper than $99 at different times during the year so if they can hold firm at $99 they'll be doing better in terms of how much they're charging per pass and will sell more come Village renewal time, particuarly given most guests probably haven't had a DW pass for a long time. By raising their price to almost inline with Village's local pass price they can kiss that advantage goodbye in one swift incompetent blow.
