    If anyone cares... Despite Jetstreams initially still being listed/mentioned on the Wet'N'Wild website on the Mach 5 page after the update, the attraction has now been fully removed from the website alongside with all references to the ride (apart from the park map). Obviously this attraction will not be reopening again.

    Gold Rush to get aviation theme at Dreamworld?

    That facade looks like both a shopping mall and an airport terminal. Easily could one of these.

    Gold Rush to get aviation theme at Dreamworld?

    I don't understand what I have done wrong. I only suggested the idea and said that a ride-op told me about it. Never before did I say this was definitely going to happen. Of course all info is sketchy at this point.
  4. I have been told by a ride op (not that they are always reliable) that Gold Rush is being re-themed to an airport/flying theme to match the i-Ride theme, and Buzzsaw will be renamed.

    Tower of Terror ongoing/indefinite closure (Dreamworld)

    TOT has been pushed back to 27th Sep according to the DW website.

    Tower of Terror ongoing/indefinite closure (Dreamworld)

    The cost of running and maintaining TOT alone is the reason why DW is suffering financial problems. The experience is not worth the cost of maintaining it and all of it's test runs.

    Tower of Terror ongoing/indefinite closure (Dreamworld)

    It's only been closed since mid June due to the amount of problems it was having. It did reopen for a couple of days in early July, however closed again and is set to reopen in 3 days from now. That's not even 3 months so far, whereas Buzzsaw has faced closure since end of March (that's 5.5 months), wouldn't you rather complain about that? I have noticed that they have finally posted that the RIP is closed. This attraction has been closed since July and is now set to reopen at the end of October, however the closure has only been posted on the website since yesterday. It's interesting the amount of extended maintenance they are doing on their attractions. Hydrocoaster, Buzzsaw, TOT, Hot Wheels and the RIP have been closed for very long periods. PS Why has this been made a new topic? TOT is literally scheduled to open in 3 days...

    Dreamworld "I-Ride" Flying Theatre Discussion

    I think the most likely theme for this attraction is an airport terminal. It would be cool if they made up some fake airline and incorperated typical airport shit and made it a kick ass theme.

    The Jetsreams are not listed as a standalone attraction but are still listed on the sidewinders page Mach 5 is also opening in December which is cool.
  10. A futuristic designed facade contrasting with historic facade designs to me would be highly effective to make the ride stand out. Despite it not looking like everything else, it would contrast well and I applaud DW for this design choice. At the end of the day, this design could be much worse and doesn't appear to follow typical DW thinking.

    There are now large weeds growing out of the abandoned Jetsteams plunge pool. The whole Mach 5 area is now looking very neglected. There is still no changes with these slides and they have remained in the same state since January, and in just 3 weeks time Jetstreams would have been closed for a year, and Sidewinders closed for 9 months. I would hope that they are pending demolition because the whole structure is a complete eyesore and it looks terrible without its shade sail. If Village Roadshow is going to let these slides rot, please, please just install a shade sail to make them look somewhat normal.
