    Leviathan Construction Updates

    Glad you tried.
  2. I am sure if we all pitch in, we can get it done. Maybe start a fundraiser?
  3. I think we could expect the first 500 feet roller coaster built for the Wonderland revival. It is really the only reasonable conclusion we can come to. Sure, it will take a lot of feet to build, but when it is. It will be a site to see.
  4. You'd hope so. You can never allow yourself to take advantage of the situation you are in, it will eventually blind you from innovation. If Intamin are continuing to take inspiration from other manufactures and pushing the boundaries of the roller coaster industry, it will only push the other manufactures to better their product. Not everything will work, but eventually you will find something. I would of been disappointed if Intamin were not adventuring into new territory, challenging themselves with new ideas. Competition in this case will only benefit customers, which will trickle down to us.

    What are these rides like?

    Him and his profile picture, utterly terrifying. Where is Walt leading Mickey Mouse? That is the real question, what is Walt going to do to him? I agree with Mr. Bean.

    What are these rides like?

    I am sorry, but this is one of the most stupid threads I have possibly seen. Granted, I have personally made some stupid threads in my day. The most productive answer you will get is 'intense' or 'not intense'. You are asking us to describe a feeling, we can not possibly do that. Do you want words like 'extreme', or even 'pure adrenaline'? How about intense in Spanish? Intenso! Does this fulfill your needs? DC Rivals was so Intenso! My point is, stop asking us to describe a feeling. Do we look like Shakespeare? The only way you will overcome roller coasters is through riding them, speaking from experience. You do not need to jump into the deep end, in some cases it will only create more fear. Slowly and surely take more and more steps to build your confidence, these feat of engineering are nothing to be scared of. So in short, my advice is take what you can handle. You are allowed to take your time, there is no rush. Just be productive about it, there is no use in being scared of something you clearly have some interest in.
  7. I would say the most iconic ride Australia has ever had was the Tower of Terror. It might of only had the world record because of a delay, but it is that it held that record is what is important. I think it is what put Australia on the map in terms of theme parks. DC Rivals might be too young to be called an icon, but it will definitely grow to become synonymous with the Australian theme park industry. I mean, one can argue it is already the star attraction.
  8. I would be very surprised if Wild West Falls gets removed, it is a very popular and iconic ride at the park. Also, it is one of the only water rides in the entire park, so removing it would leave a massive hole. Is there even any evidence to suggest it would be Wild West Falls? But Arkham Asylum is certainly gone, and i am quite happy about it.

    What’s next for movie world

    I don't know where is the best place to voice my opinion on the new Yogi Bear 4D attraction, but whilst the topic is being mentioned. I will throw in my two cents. This is coming from a guy who saw the movie in a cinema, the 2011 Yogi Bear movie is quite a unusual choice for a 4D film. Considering this is not only the first time the movie has had an opportunity of a slight thought in someone's mind in sometime, but is the character of Yogi Bear even popular with the kids anymore? The attraction will most likely get the numbers, but surely there was better decisions to be made.

    How would you know the late 90s to the early 2000's was the 'golden years' for the park? This is the golden years for the park in my opinion, with the exit of Arkham Asylum allowing for better future developments. The park attraction wise is a lot better than the 2000s, DC Rivals makes a lot of difference. I do think Movie World can spend a few years renovating the place, but i entirely disagree that the late 90s to early 2000's was the park's peak.

    How long do you think it will take for a replacement for the ride? Considering Wet & Wild is most likely next to get some investment, since water sliders are a lot cheaper than roller coasters.

    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    Quality source.
  13. I honestly could not care less if they get rid of the castle, sure it has been there for a long time. But getting rid of the castle will not only give an excuse to remove the hideous corpse of Viking's Revenge, but also free up space for future development.

    Nostalgia at the Parks

    I mean, it was apart of the marketing campaign. But no. Most of it is gone now, they got rid of a lot of things from their YouTube channel. They still have their Facebook videos still up, didn't get rid of those!
  15. How does a topic on Ardent Leisure admitting guilt for the deaths of four people, turn into a discussion about showering naked, Big Brother and shitty parent advice. May the world never know.
