  1. People that live in Studio Village need to just shut up about the noise. They moved next to a working studio and theme park. We do events at the park all year long and 10pm, we have to cut all noise because these idiots moved next to an entertainment precinct. The next problem is GC city council has no backbone and bows down to these people.
  2. Winterfest will be looking the goods tonight!
  3. The industry is in big trouble. Currently a lot of the showmen are shut down as the underwriters have not renewed the policy's that have already expired. They guys currently still trading are using the current PLI, but when that runs out... unsure what will happen. All the big underwriters have pulled out claiming covid impacts and loss of income. Some experts are saying that because premiums were not paid and just a hand full of payouts happened, it hurt the bottom line, so the underwriters just pulled out. They have based alot of the data off the US and UK markets that have significantly higher claims and losses durring covid than the Australian market, and this is the problem when most of the underwriters come out of London.
  4. Thats exactly what I am thinking too about the slide incident. The program did they more harm than sympathy. My wife (a youth support worker) also noticed the kid makes a gang sign (education queensland has banned that sign in all schools) when they are filming the family hanging out the front of the house. Over all, 30 minutes of stock footage, a nice build up and the thrown under the bus for 40mins. The ride inspector part was interesting that they went down the path of an accident, but I did hate that they put the candid part of him asking whn it airs to try and through some shade on him. all up, 1 stale chirro out of 10
  5. this is totally false. I work and do media for a major fireworks company and during the bushfire, they got hammered by the media. cut to a week before NYE it was all about cancelling and the media feeding it purely for click bait. One reporter gave us an absolute uneducated spray on the 20th of December that got alot of people upset and then on the 28th did a fluff peice about how good the fireworks would be for Surfers Paradise. I called him out infront of the media pack and he sheepishly told the whole pack, that what ever gets the ratings. Australian media its all about online click bait for advertising and what ever gets a rating. I have 10 years of experience with the media and its the same shit day in and day out. It's infotainment, over hype, opinion and also most never just the facts. So please don't embarrass yourself by saying that the media don't high five when they though and indusrty under the bus and get huge ratings. 4 years I took for them to stop mentioning death and dreamworld in the same story.
  6. The whole area is being leveled. It will be a picnic area for the future until the ground has settled. Its been marked as a future attraction site
  7. That area is on the side of the swamp. Once the ground work is done, its going to have to sit vacant while the ground settles. Could be a few years before they do anything with an attraction on it. Dont be surprised if they turn it into a picnic area!
  8. Saw some demolition engineers down near the log ride, I believe its about to come down in the next few weeks.
  9. Correct, it also allows them to compete with places like BIG4. Look at BIG4 at Sandstone point, its has the cabins, bungalows and camp site is has been almost fully booked the past 6 months.
  10. Pre Covid, Movie World was operating events and conferences almost 5 nights a week. Having to bus conferences guests (some that book entire wings or on occasions that whole resort) from seaworld was a logistic pain in the butt. It opens up a new hotel with conference facility's to play host to multiple offsite dinners and events with out having to use non VRTP venues. So basically, they use their own facility keeping all the extra cash in house. It was a huge market to them and with bookings now starting to come back, its a no brainier. There event team is very good at selling their venues and its sort after by cooperates

  12. The addition of an RV and Camp site is a very smart idea. Dreamworld have had this in the works of a number of months, with a former high level manager stepping down to focus on other projects for the park. Them the whispers
  13. Any near miss incident should be reported, if the Murdoch news fiction paper reported every near miss that is reported with Qantas, no one would ever fly. Its a media beef up. Click bait about dreamworld sells unfortunately and Facebook doesn't help. 100's of near misses are reported across Queensland every week, Im glad that they are taking it seriously and reporting.
  14. Shine Lawyers... But Im not after money at all!
