    Tower of Terror Update

    Statement from Dreamworld: "The new car is definitely lighter and faster. These days materials no longer need to be as big and bulky to do the job. Take mobile phones for example." And Dreamworld has been saying for a while that it will be lighter... It seems confirmed but I'm not sure, so I wouldn't go saying that they haven't said anything yet.

    Yes, I'd like to see these added to the list- also, Illuminate *should* count as a show shouldn't it?

    Movieworld Expansion

    Must've been denied then. Personally if it was charged entry I wouldn't think it would be worth it- 7 RESTAURANTS. COME ON. Not to mention most likely upcharge go-karts and an arcade... well okay so I love arcades, but I hope they don't just go and slap a bunch of run-down crap games in there, and I also hope that they don't make %90 of the games those motorcycle ones (if they did go ahead with this).

    Yep sure, just give me a minute and I'll find it.. AH YES! it's called a 'pipeline' coaster here's the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pipeline_roller_coaster They seem to be an extremely rare coasters, so if you can go on one, tell us all about it!

    Halloween Fright Nights 2010

    Don't think I'll go to this- I'm VERY faint-hearted XD If I did, though, I'd probably cosplay a bit(working on one now)... Screamworld IS on during Halloween, right? I'll go then instead (i prefer dreamworld anyway)

    Oh, that's good- seems they're giving it the much-needed refurb. Having never been on ToT before I've never seen the queue but I've heard it's rather bad... So excited for the relaunch ^O^

    Dreamworld removing Flowrider?

    Ah, okay. The first time we thought we heard loose bolts, my friend in the back (who was holding on to the door) thought it slipped open for a moment. We only heard the sound once completely upside down, when the wind was whistling past. Next time I go on if it's still there I'll tell the op, thanks for the advice Yeah, I wish... I wish WWW could expand... (first park EVER that I went to, love the memories XD even though the park isn't very old) Actually, that doesn't sound like they're copying WnW, isn't WnW getting 2 FlowRiders? WnW seems to be making WWW look bad by copying their rides but making them more extreme. Besides, where did you get this information? I don't really believe this story...

    Dreamworld removing Flowrider?

    Haha, yeah... I think I saw a bunch of wood planks on top of the structure as well, so that made me think that they were removing parts.... Also I hate to be off-topic but I don't want to start a new thread.... today on the Reef Diver with my friend, our first and second ride of it was fine. But on the third and fourth time, we heard the sound of loose bolts (her dad's an engineer or something so she knows the sound)- is it something to worry about or if we experience it again should we tell the ride op?

    Dreamworld removing Flowrider?

    Ah, I see; I suppose I was overthinking it too much. Thanks for the heads-up.
  10. Today I needed to go to the toilet before my first time on the Claw (which was AWESOME) and noticed that the Flowrider was fenced off. Near the bathroom entrance you could peek through a bit, and from what I remember the surface was pulled back, and the bottom half was bare so you could see the wood structure... Would this mean they're removing the Flowrider? Don't have pics yet but a friend lost her favourite jumper at DW so we may have to go back again this weekend, and I may be able to take photos then.... Do you think they're going to put a different attraction in to outdo WnW and MW in some way? Do you think it's a good or bad move?

    Dreamworld Itinerary

    Hmmm... my friend (who's the one that's trying to force me on ToT) said that if the line's too long we don't have to do it That's good- we were hoping to go on rapids and log ride once we're done with www, since we'll still be in our swimmers XD That's what we've been hoping for- we hope that we can practically get the whole of www to ourselves for the day weather over here in brissy looks nice and sunny, too~ Considering how long you were there for, it sounds like you could get on the rides in a good amount of time Going at 10 today- so excited!

    Dreamworld Itinerary

    Thanks for the helpful advice! Might pop in to Dreamworld first and do the log ride and river rapids and check the status of the queues for the other rides and if they're not too long we might as well go then

    Dreamworld Itinerary

    Haha, personally I don't think any of us want to go on the Giant Drop- though the 'thrillseeker' in my group of friends is thinking about it XDD Would any other of the Big 6 rides be a bit busy? (I still think Motocoaster will take forever)

    Dreamworld Itinerary

    So tomorrow, when it's still the Ekka holidays, 2 of my friends and myself are going to Dreamworld + WWW. First; will it be quiet? I'm guessing it will at WWW (which is why we wanna go, heheh), but one person in our group has never been to Dreamworld before, so, as much as we hate it, we're taking her on the Motocoaster- which will (maybe) take forever, considering it's the Motocoaster we're talking about.... Also, how should we go about making a custom itinerary of sorts? We can go on any of the rides at WWW with ease (except for the girl who's never gone before... she's so tiny, only 139cm! X3), but what about DW? We want to go on the ToT before it's closed for a bit (yaay refurbishment), and we want to go on the Claw, the Cyclone (well, i might not do it... still a wuss! >_<)... The only ride we're not very comfortable going on is the Wipeout and Giant Drop (though the OTHER girl can ride the Wipeout w/o problems)... Is there a peak time for each of these rides to go? We want to visit the Game Site too (we love DDR)... is this too much in one day, or since it's the Ekka holidays will it be fine? Speaking of the rides- how will I get over my fear of big rides? I'm scared of heights and I REALLY want to go on the Cyclone, but whenever I watch the rollercoaster from WWW the height and the screaming scares me off a bit- I almost went on the Claw once too, but didn't for the same reasons. Is there a way to somehow 'delude' myself into jumping into the line and riding the rides without hyperventilating? Haha sorry for my questions XD I go to DW about once a month and always go on the same rides, I just want to venture into new ones

    Heading to DW tomorrow with a couple of friends, guess we better go on it before the backwards car is gone forever, huh? XD
