  1. I'd agree if the park was being built around Brisbane and the Gold Coast. But I think 1 coaster, a few flats and other non-ride attractions would be sustainable for a short period of time. The target audience wouldn't be people who have easy access to the parks on the coast. The people who the park attracts at first would be people who's only real experience in a park would be their Queensland holiday they took five years ago. I'm always wrong though, so I'm interested to hear others thoughts. It's hard for me to judge specifics about what location in NSW would suit a theme pa
  2. As much as I enjoy the dramatic arts, this thread has gone personal very quickly. If I can move the attention back to the topic at hand. I disagree with pazzap when he states "...one good coaster isn't enough." I think it is to an extent, obviously one good coaster needs supporting attractions. But if my Wikipedia article reading habits are anything, Movie World's only coaster from 1995 - 2002 was a Vekoma SLC. Obviously not a world class attraction, and maybe played more of a supporting role, but it was a good enough ride to stand-out. Sea World did have a shabby looking smaller coaster
  3. You might have chosen the wrong hill to die on. The statement about how DC Rivals isn't a world-class attraction is very questionable. However, I think you have forgotten that majority of Movie World's guests have never even set foot into a foreign theme park. It does not matter if you consider DC Rivals to be lacking in originality in comparison to the world stage, since the general public have never even seen an attraction like it. The closest coaster to DC Rivals, with a regular chain-lift, non-inverted, no launch, would have been Gold Coaster. A relic from the 90s, from a compan
  4. The two rides I have the most nostalgia for are Scooby Doo and Wild Wild West, I use to be terrified of anything that looked big, scary and went upside down. My favourite trip to Movie World would have been nearly a decade ago, no clue on the year. But It was my first time back since I was a toddler. It was a rainy day, and without my mother for protection, my father decided it was a great time to get me on some of the bigger rides. He got me on Superman Escape and Batwing, at the time that was the worst experiences of my life. I didn't open my eyes once on Superman, and I have never bee
  5. I love middle aged YouTube! Especially Australian middle aged YouTube.
  6. The general public aren't stupid, this sentiment is a stain on the community in my opinion. Just because they aren't interested in the latest and greatest of theme park developments, does not at all mean something like that will fly over their heads. They'd be the first people to point out that they are the exact same ride.
  7. Historically speaking, whenever a theme park is bought out the new ownership tends to enjoy marking it's authority over its new purchase. I think we could expect something big installed for Arkham Asylum's replacement. It well and truly could be a B&M, Richard said something a bit ago about them being on Village's radar. Their coasters would add something valuable to Movie World's line up. A Mad Max theme might be pretty cool, but they'll probably just name the coaster after the newest Superhero movie like they always do.
  8. The general area. The ride is pretty close to the film lot, which does limit the potential space. Even if they manage to find new room, I still do not think it would be enough for a large scale B&M, which coasters like a wing, dive and hyper usually are. I could be wrong, but it is just my though process.
  9. If we were to see a B&M replacing Arkham Asylum, it would have to be one of their more compact coasters. Which leaves it either their new surf model, a flying coaster or the inverted model. The area is not small at all, but B&M's tend to be quite bigger in comparison to other coasters. Personally, I think would be really cool to see a flying coaster. Very easy to sell, and they could do so much theming potential.
  10. The Arkham area looks great and clearly kept in good condition, and the emptiness does fit the theme. But I also feel that the area could be used for so much more and not be so empty and depressing. I honestly think Arkham closing is going to be a blessing in the long run. Never liked the actual ride anyway.
  11. I'm pretty sure a Raptor can only run 1 train, and I am not 100% sure on how many trains run on Green Lantern at a single point in time. But I am 100% sure it is more than 1.
  12. I am sure if we all pitch in, we can get it done. Maybe start a fundraiser?
  13. 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.
  14. 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 trick
