  1. 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!
  3. 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.

    Nostalgia at the Parks

    Does anybody remember the Buzzsaw marketing campaign where staff members told stories of their ghost experiences? There was also some competition to stay over night at Dreamworld. I think they made the videos of the marketing campaigns private on their YouTube channel, but i just remember them really well.

    Intamin Concept Rides

    Interesting to see another company creating concepts around the single rail track design. I personally don't see really any of these getting off the ground, and if they do it won't become popular with parks. All of these concepts are clearly heavily inspired by other manufacturers. I understand that is how the industry works, but why wouldn't a park just go with the manufacture who originally created the concept and has already proven themselves with that concept? This is just Intamin throwing shit at the wall and hoping it sticks.

    Funny theme park videos

    I mean, i think FriendlyJordies is great and all. But, was this necessary? Out of all his videos, this one? This is like lower tier of his content. For context, he mainly makes videos on Australian politics using humour as a way to reach an audience that isn't really interested in politics.

    Dreamworld Website updates

    The letters funny enough has been changed from black to white on the Dreamworld Website. I don't know how much you could be credited for it, but the logo has improved.
  8. Considering it is a press release, i think that is the aim of the article.

    Theme park stories

    I was scared of the big thrill rides for a long time, and i mean a long time. So most of my stories comes from my dad putting me on rides that i was utterly terrified of. This was back when my favourite rides were Mick Doohan's Motocoaster and Shockwave. I remember starting to do research on these rides that i was terrified of, which by research i mean Wikipedia articles. I was starting to come out of my shell a bit, so i decided to brave the Giant Drop. I was instantly terrified after riding and immediately never wanted to get back on another big ride again. A similar story happened with the Batwing Spaceshot, except i was forced onto the ride by my father on my second-ever trip to Movie World. I remember just being terrified, it felt so high up. I went on the ride late last year for an end of school trip, i have never been more underwhelmed. My first ride of Superman was interesting, i hugged my dad and had my eyes shut throughout the queue. Then we got back row, and i thought it wasn't that bad at first. I had already seen the Theme Park Review pov, so i was just pointing out the stuff like the waterfalls and cop cars to my father. Then we launched... the rest of the experience is a blur. I had my eyes closed the entire time. My dad constantly tried pushing me onto the big rides, like Tower of Terror. Which i never rode, which i am a bit bummed. I was too scared when we had Dreamworld passes, and i haven't been back since 2014. There is always Magic Mountain i suppose. I remember my first time on DC Rivals fondly, i remember still feeling a bit intimated. After the ride, any fear i had of coasters just faded away. I will wrap it up with one quick stories on my experience in theme parks as a young youngster. My first ride on Bermuda Triangle scared me so much that i kept my head down the entire ride (Which seems to be a common trope.) My mother thought i fell or jumped off the boat during the ride.

    It was just shocking to watch the Tower of Terror go so high up the tower.
  13. The new-age Vekoma coasters have been really good from what i have seen. I would love to see more parks get a Vekoma, which is a phrase that would be laughed at a few years ago. Slowly but surely they are reversing their image of the discount coasters of the 90s.
