    Lazy River / White Water World Expansion Construction Updates

    The were having a good go at it earlier this year at the same time as filling in the rapids. Then all of a sudden they filled in the earthworks done for the rivers and abandoned the site.

    What's gone wrong with SkyVoyager?

    I wanna throw my idea in, just cause why not... Ardent hasn’t made the final payment on the project for whatever reason (probably run out of cash) and the supplier hasn’t done an official handover. No handover, no ride open. 🧐

    Surely that won't stay there

    I don't agree with hearing "it happens all the time, it's normal". At the end of the day these rides are multi million dollar machines and shouldn't break down as often as they do. Yeh maybe once or twice a week where a sensor has become dirty or something but not frequently. I know most of the time it isn't a catastrophic failure but there's no excuse for an advanced machine to constantly stop working.

    Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    This is exactly what I've been saying to people. If you're a regular and you know what happened then sure whatever. But if you've come to the coast to go to themeparks (which tourists do all year round) and you're met with Dreamworld as it is now, then it's a big F you to visitors. Then for DW to do a 30 days for $30, you know that they know "we're a little bit up the sh*t here".

    Dreamworld Ghost town

    I was there Monday with the kids and it really is a bit depressing these days. Only the major retail shops were open, all the smaller kiosks were shut. I know it’s not the busy season but I feel bad for anyone that travels for a holiday and you walk into this depressing half open theme park. On a positive there was next to no wait for the rides (that were open lol). It kinda seems like they’ve given up on trying to get people through the door. Even the dancers doing their show looked sad, imagine dancing for no one. Just my little rant.
  7. Well they're ready to roll... Showers this morning possibly delayed the erection but now it's windy as hell down here. Could be a bit too much blow for the erection
  8. Just drove past and there's a large crane on site about to setup.

    Dreamworld grass fire today

    It was a small non threatening fire right out the back behind the maintenance sheds. It was closer to the sports building than DW.
  10. I wouldn't think Dreamworld would want to publicly remind everyone of the accident, therefore possibly restarting the whole reduction in attendance again just when people are starting to get over it.
  11. From the highway it looks about level with the bat tower. As I was leaving the big mumma crane was getting ready to lift up another section of track. They was still a big team of guys working on the top section on the ground.
