    Adventure World - 2019/20 Season

    100% agree. I was surprised at how much they tried to interact with guests - even before getting into the park And their ‘tests’ to check for contamination were clever too. The music they played was great too (imo anyway) - hard rock and heavy metal 🤘 Now I don’t mean to sound super harsh but it didn’t really feel like a Fright Nights event but more of a park after dark event with a few scare actors roaming around. Perhaps the locals could let me know if the event is in its early years? The maze was quite good and elaborate but there didn’t seem to be a consistent theme - but maybe I was just put off by the clown that was following me and laughing creepily at times. I also thought that having the maze as an upcharge (not included with entry ticket) is a good idea. I think that should be something for MW to consider if they’re to have such a big maze with such a long wait next year (again, imo). Have the smaller mazes included in entry ticket and then pay and book for the big maze.

    Adventure World - Solo visit

    That didn’t stop the locals from using the water park and slides!! I was nearly dying from the cold (hey, I’m from Brisbane) and there they are running around in swimmers 🤔 Also, they were closed agin today due to the weather and only opening for Fright Nights. Pretty bummed that I didn’t get to go as that’s what I had planned but oh well, can’t change the weather. Provided the customer service guy is true to his word, they will refund me the cost of my day ticket.

    Adventure World - Solo visit

    I was thinking about it but if it’s going to be this cold again tomorrow (technically today) then I won’t. By the way, I totally understand now when you said you leave your stuff on the lawn. You could never do anything like that at any park in QLD.

    Adventure World - Solo visit

    Thanks @Tim Dasco!! When I go to my local parks, I take a mini backpack (you know the Loungefly ones?). Would that require a locker at Adventure World or OK for the ride bins? I had little bit of an issue when I went to SF Discovery Kingdom In 2017 and I’ve been wary of it since. I certainly have - didn’t want to miss out! I booked 9:45pm. I also bought a fast pass for the night so I can do some rides. @AlexB I know right? 😀 But Movie World’s Fright Nights are already done for the season so gotta give kudos to Adventure World for knowing when Halloween is. I’m really interested to know what the ‘contamination zones’ are!
  5. First of all, if this post belongs under another topic please close this. In true Amy fashion, I have decided to do a spur of the moment trip to Perth on Thursday - just to visit Adventure World. I’m also planning on going to their Fright Nights event on Thursday night (tickets already booked 😊). I’ve never been to Adventure World before let alone Perth, so I was hoping someone might give me some tips eg: do I need a locker or are there storage bins on the rides, etc I’m super excited about finally getting to visit as I’ve been trying to get there for over a year and a half and it just didn’t happen. Thanks in advance! Amy

    Fright Nights 2019

    For me, Fright Nights this year is a big improvement to last year. While the ‘opening’ and ‘closing’ of the night are still the weak points (in my opinion), I’d gladly sacrifice them to have the bigger and better mazes which is what they’ve done. I attended on the very first night (on the platinum ultimate terror tour) and then again last night (standard utt) and was surprised to see the vast improvement - they’ve figured out where to put the utt guests for the opening, they’re sending through smaller groups at a time in the mazes and spacing them out and the scare actors are really getting into their roles - the zombies are creepy af! Not to mention Herman Shuster and his favourite doll. I think Movie World are not only listening to the feedback of their guests but also acting on it. I was very glad to see they brought back the refillable Fright Nights cup this year as well.

    Ultimate Terror Tour 2019

    I did the platinum tour and overall it was a great experience. Being the first night there were issues but at least the tickets were a bit cheaper. - SPOILERS AHEAD - Our group got to enter first and we had photos taken at the entry of the VIP room. We were greeted with drinks and canapés and given our tour gift - pen in a coffin shaped box. We were supposed to be going to do the panic rooms at 4:45 but we weren’t taken over til just after 5:00. I did the Dark Room and we were the first ones to escape - and in 18 minutes. We were escorted back to the VIP room and lead straight into the Roxy theatre where we realised we missed basically all of the cast and crew meet and greet. Chilled for a bit then got taken to the viewing area for the opening - where they realised they didn’t have a spot for the platinum people so we had to squish in front of the UTT people. The opening was some of the ‘baby-faced’ killers dancing and a live singer. We were taken to the IT maze first and were basically the first ones to enter. Unfortunately they took all 20 of us in and I was lucky - or not so lucky - last in the line. I missed all the scare actors. But the set was really detailed and I especially liked the sewer. Then the group behind us caught up to us and started pushing us and I was nearly trampled (hey, I’m a petite, short chick). Then we were taken off to do the terror tour. Our group was split in to two and we had to wait near Wild West Falls for a bit. We were joined by a ‘late-comer’ which I thought was strange. I won’t go into detail about the tour but the ‘late-comer’ ended up pissing off one of the drug bosses and they tied him to a tree. I have an inkling that this was all staged as I didn’t see him again after that. Very enjoyable but I agree with the previous poster in that it could’ve been a bit longer. After that we went to experience A Grave Death. We got our make-up done to look like The Joker (seriously.....) I don’t want to spoil the experience as it was one of my favourite things of the night but I will tell you that you are given a panic button should you not be able to take being ‘buried alive’. After that was free time - 2 hours to do whatever we pleased. We did the mazes - thank god for fast track! - backwards on DC rivals, forwards on DC Rivals and a ride on Superman Escape. Grabbed some food - which was amazing as always. Our tour guide - Lucy - was awesome. Took our feedback and I even got an email from her the day after. In case you were wondering, the spiel about ‘experiencing the mazes in a different way’ means to be able to go through by yourself or with just your friends. Had I know that earlier in the night I definitely would’ve gone through IT by myself.

    'Tower Of Terror II' E-Stop

    Stuck up where exactly??? This makes it sounds like they were stuck up the vertical part of the track. Right. So at the beginning of the tunnel. Been there, done that. One of the best experiences of my life - I even posted about it back in the day when it happened. I am surprised to read that they didn’t get any communication from the ride ops though. When it happened to me it took quite some time for the ride vehicle to come to a complete stop at the tunnel entrance. The entire time I heard a staff member over speakers saying that ‘there was no cause for alarm,’ ‘our harnesses were still locked,’ ‘the ride wouldn’t launch again’ and that ‘maintenance were on the way’. Me neither. Maybe I should sue too.

    Aussie World Visit Jan19

    Thanks @Rabbit2014 I was wondering if it had opened as I hadn’t hear anything yet. @pushbutton Aussie World used to have one of the cars from the Wild Mouse sit beside the Mayhem Maze but when I went to their Halloween night last year it had been removed.

    Dreamworld Memberships

    I have just checked my emails and have received this from Dreamworld today. They will be ceasing all memberships. While I’m not surprised by this I am quite sad about it as I don’t think I would buy an annual pass - not really a lot on offer there to justify the price.
  11. I thought they might’ve put the train there so maintenance could fix whatever they needed to. One lucky maintenance guy got to do the long climb up though. It only sat up there for about 20 minutes. The ride has been down just over an hour now. But I think it just reopened.
  12. Well I’m sure the fact that the train is sitting at the top of the drop will draw their attention.
  13. They must have one purely for the purpose of reporting ‘incidents’ at the parks....
  14. I’m at the park today and they have just closed DC Rivals due to technical difficulties. At first they let us wait in the queueing area but have just asked us all to leave and check back later. Not really sure what the issue was but the train was completely stopping at the final set of brakes and sitting there for a short time instead of continuously moving back to the station.

    Strange new noises on Wipeout

    It’s not really worthy of creating a new topic but I’m at the park today and maintenance had to be called out to the Wipeout. I was on the ride at the time and just as it was starting the gondola must’ve got out of alignment (?) and we just rocked for a couple of minutes. Would’ve taken a maximum of 10 minutes for maintenance to arrive and realign the ride so that we could get off. They just finished testing and been given the green light.
