  1. Just FYI the target market is the parents of really little kids, not the kids themselves.
  2. Sea World December 2017 Improvements

    I mean what do you even say to that? If that's current it's beyond appauling.
  3. DCA removed Maliboomer and Superstar Limo as part of improving the park. Just throwing it out there
  4. The timing is odd. Instead of telling people why they should be coming now the news is filled with mentions of last year's events in exchange for telling people about what's coming next year. I'm all for building hype but it's almost at the expense of this year. Even with the missteps surrounding not being able tl have the Wipeout, Log Ride, Trolls meet'n greet and Kiddie Ferris wheel open, they still have ways to market themselves. They could really market that WWW & DW are the same massive park now, they could be marketing that the DW pass is cheaper and bettee value than Village. But instead it's 'Oh wait till you see what we're doing next year!' 'Tickets not on sale now!'
  5. Very much fits the direction of the park 👍🏻
  6. That list confirms it, all the major parks do have 'World' in their name
  7. The Off Topic Topic

    Meh it's during the Christmas holidays so close enough.
  8. Sirens of the Sea non event

    Well you either want people in water that's dangerously cold you or you want people splashing about in the tiny pool outside. What do you want me to say?
  9. Sirens of the Sea non event

    You want to put people in the water in the penguin area? That's perhaps the dumbest thing on the internet at the moment. Also you do know they're not on the side which has the Sharks right?
  10. I'm sure this isn't the case, but they do seem a little bit like the Uni student who tries to do all their assignments at the last min, and fails.
  11. Wait so people actually like that map?
  12. Again, it's kart before the horse type stuff. You're looking at how to get tech you've just discovered into rides. I don't want to see rides installed based on what effects you can install on them. You can use any effects on anything, you can project cracks appearing on the Subway walls on Superman, you can project ghosts on the wall at Scooby, you can project dynamite fuses on the lift hill at Wild West. The trick is to use the technology to help your story, not design something so you can use technology. That sort of backwards thinking is why movies in the early 2000s were generally awful, it was technology first story second.
  13. I think seeing a cool piece of tech and thinking 'Ooh thats cool we need to do that!' is kind of arse backwards. There are so many things you can do the thought process should be 'what story or sense of place are we trying to create and what is the best tech to bring that to life'. So when talking about how to fix Scooby, just saying 'projections' isn't really an idea. It's a great tool that can be used for sure, but in itself it's not an idea. It's a bit like answering the question 'What renovations are you doing to your house?' with the word 'Hammers!'
  14. Utterly mystifying addition if true. The only reason I can invent for them adding it is to allow them to paint the picture that 'The future is bright and we're still investing in the park for the future'. On the other hand though getting the families with small kids through the door seems to be what they're banking on for their recovery, and any thrill ride they added would just be OBLITERATED this year anyway.
  15. See normally I'd be waiting for AlexB to respond with a sarcastic post about him not knowing what you're talking about given its actually called Ride Express now, but since he got it wrong I don't know what to expect.
