  1. Any logical person/organisation who is trying to market/advertise their new product/experience to the broadest/largest possible audience?
  2. *opinion* The reality is mainstream media outlets such as channel 7 are always going to try create a storyline/angle that generates clicks and views. Thats the nature of their industry, and I fully understand why they need to do that to succeed. But surely, at a point, you've got to take a step back and ask yourself ''What the fuck are we actually doing?'' To market a product (the doco) as 'must watch' for families and an 'insight' into a relatively unseen industry and spit out that heinously bias tripe is just absolutely terrible. Unfortunately, and as we all know, freak a
  3. Take a sip every time an argument breaks out in a Parkz Forum🍺🥴 Why can't we all just get along 😢 (said with obvious and overt sarcasm)
  4. Might've actually shit myself watching this, that thing looks insane! Also big ups on that new role you're taking up mate, great to see people living out their dreams 🙌
  5. Could just be really uneducated, but was there actually any legitimate reason for the log ride to close? Surely a log flume wouldn't cost all that much to maintain and operate? If it's to move past the Parks Gold rush era, i get that, but still, just seems very sad and wasteful.
  6. Would be good if they tried to sell some of the old signage/boats and stuff like that. I'm sure there are many folks out there who wouldn't mind that sort of an addition to a man cave etc. Would make them seem a little bit desperate if they started selling chunks of conveyor belt though...
  7. I understand wikipedia isn't exactly a 'reliable source' but there are indeed seperate listings for TOT and the tower itself (Dreamworld Tower), and mentions of their independent nature to one another. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_of_Terror_II "The ride was situated on the Dreamworld Tower, which also houses The Giant Drop free fall ride" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreamworld_Tower "The Dreamworld Tower supports both the Tower of Terror II and the Giant Drop." Hopefully that helps clear something up..
  8. Ratanga Junction in Cape Town was a seasonal park similar to Adventure world, and the SLC in said park was only in operation for 20 years. Arkham was 25 years old, operated for at least 300 days in each of those 25 years, the first 12 of which would've been as the parks major thrill ride (so i'm assuming with extremely high patronage during that period). Arkham was the the 4th SLC built and Cobra was the 21st (https://rcdb.com/r.htm?order=-8&ot=2&ml=8106) so I'd assume there would've been some technological and/or structural optimisation within that time to the SLC model that would con
  9. It's about 5 years past it's used by date, and from what i seem to gather the maintenance and upkeep required have rendered it financially impracticable. Was nothing special to begin with, bar theming, and there wouldn't be that many parks around interested in a vekoma SLC let alone a 25 year old dead one.
  10. As Gazza said, Perth is an exception to this. Given we've been relatively un-effected, and because it's not like we actually (AW and OS) relied on interstate or international tourism that heavily pre-covid anyways. People have also got more disposable income over here courtesy of the stimulus package, being able to continue working and the inability to blow all this in a bender up in Bali or On the Gold Coast (shit examples but you get my jist). We were also lucky enough that our lockdown occurred in the park off seasons, so loss of income due to closure was close to nil. For the most par
  11. Look man, i'm usually the last person to complain or even care about this sort of thing, but please proof read or something before you submit a reply. It is very hard to understand what you are saying or even trying to say sometimes due to a lack of punctuation and what not, and it makes it very hard to therefore have any sort of a constructive conversation with you and to an extent take what you have to say seriously. Your (and i think i speak on behalf of most people on here) opinions and comments are valid, interesting and appreciated by us as a community, just please for the sake of other
  12. ''Immerse yourself in an All new, all year round attraction like no other in the southern hemisphere! Take a photo, tag ur friends (if you dare) as you traverse the twsited tracks of the abandoned Arkham Asylum. For a small upcharge ($100), guest will be able to harness up and walk the tracks of what was formerly the tallest, fastest and longest Roller Coaster of it's type in southern Queensland. Coming Summer 2021"
  13. It is Wikipedia, so take with a grain of salt, but still...
  14. Yeah they have gone as far as removing it from the park map too. Curious as to why management said otherwise and why they wouldn't have made an announcement yet though?
