    WWW - New slide tower

    Come on man......this is meant to be a positive occasion for Dreamworld. It doesnt need to be tarnished just yet.
  2. Great review as always from the writers at Parkz!! Having ridden Soarin" at Epcot in 2017, I am certainly interested to see how this ride stacks up to it. This article certainly answers that question quite well, but the proof will be in the actual riding. Soarin' was a major highlight of our entire Orlando trip ( one of many!!) and this ride will have to be extremely good to be even mentioned in the same breath as Soarin'. The queue and pre-show sounds entirely frustrating though- why cant our parks get this right? The template in Disney and even Universal is right there- and whilst it would be churlish to expect that high a standard - surely we can get a decent facsimile that just works and doesnt' feel "clunky". Certainly looking forward to riding this in January 2020- I think that being such a unique ride and Australian first, that this will be a sure fire hit for Dreamworld. With today's announcement's of investment in a new coaster and expansion at White Water World, perhaps Dreamworld can finally step out of the long shadow of the TRR tragedy . Today is certainly a good day to be a Dreamworld fanboy and I am sure that Village is sitting up and taking notice-which will be a good thing for the GC and the industry. Given the already large investment of DC Rivals and the previously announced Seaworld Atlantis expansion, we can all hope that this is another major step into further investment and expansion for the industry and the parks on a scale the likes of which havent been seen since the early to mid 90's. Bring it on!!
  3. Wold you really classify Buzzsaw as a launch coaster though? I would have thought not........

    Great news !! Not exactly the opening with the required amount of fanfare that Dreamworld would have expected from such an important ride though. Looking forward to seeing the ride reviews as they roll in!!

    WNW - GC upgrade ideas

    Just put in one of these with some awesome theming- the video does not do the speed of this river justice- its an awesome attraction that would be great for soaking up the crowds!!

    WNW - GC upgrade ideas

    They look like an excellent addition- Australian first too!! My only concern is that they are quite mechanical- I would have some concerns over the inherent reliability of the slide? This is just my thoughts- I do not have any actual data to draw this on. Still I think it would be a standout attraction! Whats the capacity like?

    Ideas to fix WB Kids at Movie World

    Roadrunner has plenty of life in it yet. Whats the reason for removing it? If we are honest, its probably the best attraction in the kids section. Its a no from me.

    WNW - GC upgrade ideas

    Put in an Action/Rapid River similar to Universal's Volcano Bay's TeAwa the Fearless River. Make it a decent length- circumnavigate the park , make it a true destination/people mover and it would be a huge people soaker and popular attraction. The Volcano Bay example was the best attraction at Volcano Bay- it was brilliant.

    Hard Quiz: Luna Park Sydney

    Here is the link for the Luna Park Sydney episode on Iview. I know the Luna Park Sydney champion from Facebook- she is a very nice person. She doesn't like rides much per se but instead loves the pop culture icons that Luna Park has presented over the years. She has an extensive collection of memorabilia with items dating back to the 30"s., which is very cool. Cant believe she got Professor Hoffmeister on the Rotor wrong though!! Watch the episode to see if she won the day!!! https://iview.abc.net.au/show/hard-quiz Season 4 Episode 12.

    Luna Park Historic Photographs

    If your on Facebook, check out Lost Luna Park Melbourne and also The Friends Of Luna Park. They have some excellent photos including some exterior shots of the Giggle Palace.Unfortunately, no interior shots of the Giggle Palace have ever been unearthed at present ( Crazy I know) I have seen pics of all the attractions you listed so you should be able to dig them up.
  12. Do we have a time line for it’s opening yet?
  13. Yeah visited their in January and getting the raft to the top is a decent effort. The lines for the Tornado were not long for that very reason-it is physically quite taxing to get these to the top, especially if you only have 3 people or maybe one or two passengers are younger kids. Missed opportunity for mine. However it is a nice park and great to see that they are still adding quality attractions. This will do very well and will round out the attraction line up nicely.
  14. I recently contacted Jamberoo and asked if the Alpine Coaster wasin the scope of their future plans. I received an e-mail back from Matt George, the General Manager for Jamberoo. He wrote There you go. Disappointing news really, as I feel that this would have been an excellent attraction for the park to add- giving them some further scope beyond their wet ride offerings. Hopefully this idea will be revisited at some point in the future. Mind you, I think an Alpine Coaster installation would be an excellent choice for Scenic World to replace the rusting remains of Orphan Rocker.........

    Traveling fairs!

    Haha 😂 yeah and after potentially spending hundreds of dollars at the Ekka overall, the prospect of a cheap $2 cheese toastier would be more than tempting for most people!!
