    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.
  2. 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.
  3. Well I’m sure the fact that the train is sitting at the top of the drop will draw their attention.
  4. They must have one purely for the purpose of reporting ‘incidents’ at the parks....
  5. 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.

    The Off Topic Topic

    Perhaps I’m way too complacent but I don’t find AA unbearably rough. It’s definitely seen better days and the harnesses really cinch down on your legs during the ride but it’s still OK. The only other Vekoma slc I’ve ridden is Kong at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Considering it’s 3 years younger, it’s a far worse ride experience. My head and ears copped a battering nearly the entire ride due to its ride restraints.

    Strange new noises on Wipeout

    I had only one ride on the Wipeout today and didn’t notice any of those strange noises while riding. I didn’t watch a cycle though. It would be interesting to know whether our perspective to the ride plays a part in what we can hear or if they were just from being ‘worn in’.

    Sea World Carnivale 2018

    I was one of those poor souls. It took us an hour just to get to the M1 I’ll be remembering your tip for next year!
  10. It had been a very long time since I had visited Aussie World (20+ years!) so I decided to check out their Ride the Night event last night. In the way of rides, I knew it couldn’t compete with anything on the GC, but there were a couple of good attractions on offer. Gates opened at 5:45pm and I took that opportunity to walk around the park until the rides started at 6pm. I was surprised at how colourful the park was. Yes I’d seen their advertising and web-site but the park looked - and felt - really fresh and vibrant. It also still had some of that ‘carnival/funfair’ feel as there was different music playing at every turn - though the fact there was a local radio station set up there for the night might also have something to do with it. From 6pm I took on the Redback, Bug Run (counts as a coaster right?), Mayhem Maze, Space Shaker, The Wasp, Voyage Simulator, Mozzie Musta and Professor Bogglesworth’s Illusionarium. Dark Rebel and Ballroom Blitz were closed and they had to close The Plunge as it stopped while going up the lift hill and they had to evacuate the riders off of it. The Ferris Wheel ended up closing early too because of the storm. The staff all came across friendly and laid-back - although the ride operators seemed very young. There was some live entertainment during the night - a dj, dancing, fire twirling, plus fireworks at 9pm. There were a couple of staff members roving the park offering glow-in-the-dark body paint as well as one covered in glow-in-the-dark wrist bands that he gave out to guests during the night. Highlights of the night for me were the Illusionarium as well as the Mayhem Maze. The only way I can describe the Illusionarium is a maze of optical illusions and it was really good and a decent length. The Mayhem Maze was also surprisingly good in that the actors gave good frights!! If it was longer, it could give anything at MW’s Fright Nights a run for its money (IMO). Overall, what the park delivered on the night (and for a mere $25.50) it smashed my expectations. Not a park I could spend a lot of time in but perhaps that will change with what Aussie World has in plan for its future.

    Aussie World's new announcement

    I was at Aussie World tonight for their ‘Ride the Night’. Took this photo while I was there - It was placed in between the go karts and The Wasp.

    New passes at Dreamworld

    Wait, were the Platinum membership passes at Dreamworld not always printed on a card? I joined in April 2016 and it was a card. It does have a very small graphic of TRRR on the back tho.

    Sea World Carnivale 2018

    I went to Sea World’s first Carnivale for 2018 tonight and I really enjoyed it. This was my first time attending a Carnivale night and I wasn’t expecting much based on what I’d read from various places. However, I was pleasantly surprised. While I can understand why some would still be disappointed with what’s on offer, IMO the entertainment and aquacolour show was worth the price of admission alone. I got a few pics of the colour show - sorry about the quality but I’m no photographer!
  14. The aquacolour show was absolutely amazing!!! This was my first Carnivale and I was very impressed. The live entertainment was also really good. IMO, the entertainment and colour show alone are worth the admission to Carnivale.
