  1. Missed opportunity MDMC should be moved into this shed. Add some half working flashing lasers and now we have Mick Doohan’s Spooky Coaster!
  2. Pic from today. Also for those who like car park updates, the car park was full. Most people at White Water World.

  4. Great result. See what happens next. New Ardent Leisure board member Dr Gary Weiss is firmly behind investment in the Dreamworld theme park.

  5. I do agree the tigers could not be utilised to walk in the parade. If a parade was established and was popular a Tiger Island float could be created. That is true Dreamworld staff levels are not the same as Movieworld for their dressed up characters. It would have to be decided of which characters are more appealing to kids. The characters choice could be rotated each month so the parade experience is different on guests return.
  6. While Dreamworld/Ardent is looking for new experiences for their theme park. I would like them to explore the idea of a daily parade. I feel they could show off their attractions and create an exciting experience with licences they already have. In no order they could have as follows: * DreamWorks Characters like Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and Puss in Boots * Two tigers walked from Tiger Island * Someone or displays representing the Corrboree section * Vintage car promoting that ride * A car from the Peter Brock museum or replica * Characters from ABC
  7. More on Nara Dreamworld. http://www.news.com.au/travel/world-travel/asia/inside-nara-dreamland-japans-creepy-abandoned-theme-park/news-story/d9f6c73ea413cd64fa3dd97638187aed news.com.au
  8. The Vintage Cars have been listed as closed for maintenance for a while. Does anyone have info of its return? Could Jamberoo Fan may be onto something, as in a relocation to Gold Rush?
  9. I was at Dreamworld yesterday and can report the park had a great attendance. I arrived at 530pm. For those who like carpark reports it was 85% full with people still arriving. You didn't have to go far to find a crowds of people on rides and at the entertainment performances. I saw the beatbox show twice last year and noticed the crowd was larger for the fire machine show last night. Dreamworld do seem to be putting guests first as they moved the fire machine show starting time to 7pm so guests could experience it before the rain started. I am not concerned about the newspaper
  10. Both parks close around the sunset times for Sydney and Gold Coast. I would not expect WnW Gold Coast to operate as it gets dark. I would love for WnW Gold Coast to open earlier. Have they opened earlier in any past seasons?
  11. Just a thought. Could they be preparing to convert SDSC into a VR ride?
  12. From driving past MovieWorld tonight it looked like you had a big crowd out there for White Christmas. Glad to see.
  13. I have never seen the fountain operating, but have observed it on old park maps. Also it would have been a cool effect when going past on the train.
  14. As we know between now and 2019 the rides that are left will still have to close for scheduled maintenance (shiiiiiiiiii). Guests will need something else to keep them at the park till later in the day. I'm not a fan of the idea, but the only thing I can think of is that they install a couple of temporary carnival rides in the Sea Viper area. Any thoughts?
  15. Now that you mention it, for people visiting Dreamworld tomorrow have a look at the condition of the river outside the Billabong restaurant. I did not observe the usual eels or turtles disturbing the water. A solution like a fountain would need to be installed there. But of course other issues would be a priority at the moment.
  16. My wife and I visited Dreamworld today and we thought the park looked as good as always. To answer some of the comments that have been made lately. 1. The train was not operating today but is expected to be operational tomorrow. 2. I did not observe any merchandise with the river rapids on it. 3. I thought the crowds were better then expected. Now that the park is open, the tour operators will place this back on their packages. Crowds from overseas will increase. 4. A one day pass is WWW and Dreamworld combined. They will only be checking that young kids entering WWW i
  17. I drove up to the front of Dreamworld yesterday to see how it was progressing. I don't have the exact words to describe what I think about the green signage but I can say it looks a lot worse in person. When you walk towards the front stairs this is all your eyes will fixed on. I hope with feedback it will be moved or altered. Good news is once not focussing on the signage you will see the area fenced off for the lego store. This area is much bigger then I imagined and I can't wait till it opens. I did not observe any diffences to warrant a photo of the construction. L
  18. For travel times on the Nerang river I do agree they that they will be 4 times longer then other options, but people like to travel on water. I would not be surprised if the ferry becomes a tourist attraction in its own right. For the park itself until there is further detail it would not be an attraction I would visit more then once. Although people think it is a strange mix I don't think that it means it will be a failure. I know a number of Gold Coast locals who have seen the Outback Spectacular only once but the show continues to attract crowds year after year.
  19. I feel the ferry service would be very popular. The argument that if a route is feasible or not is irrelevant. Most local transport options in Australia are not feasible but are heavily subsidised to lesson the traffic on roads. Also people will not care about the speed of the trip. Think of it like the Parramatta river service. There are faster options but people will line up to travel on water. Lastly if the wharf is positioned strategically it would only be a few minutes walk from Nerang Train station. This would obviously create more options for people to access Surfers

  21. Hopefully the date of reopen will be decided soon. http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/queensland/dreamworld-board-set-to-decide-on-reopening-20161129-gt0ara.html
  22. Apart from superheroes, I can only think of Godzilla, Sherlock Holmes and the Hobbit movie series that are best known from Warner Bros. So the future will still be DC Comics for rides. For the movie feel of old that Push and others miss from MovieWorld, I think the key is a complete overall of the current stunt show. I would enjoy a more acrobatic style stunt show. There is a movie stunt school on the Gold Coast so surely these people could be utilised. A story like Oceans Eleven series would be interesting and something I would return for.
  23. Hi all, Have been reading this forum for a while and thought I would join. Sad to see the ride looking like this. Hopefully it will be running at the start of next year.
