    The fountain does not mean “you cant share your thoughts”. But either way that was a mistake and I am deeply sorry to cause any inconvenience. I will pass on your question to my management team for review. Kind regards Jake from Themeparkaddict.

  4. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    Dont think a ferris wheel would be temporary
  5. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    How big of a ferris wheel are we talking?
  6. Dreamworld just turned off reviews!!! LOL (on their facebook page) Looks like they couldn't handle the heat. I must say though it was starting to get a bit out of control with the one stars.
  7. I don't think a light open handed tap on the head would do much, the guy needs a lot more than that
  8. This review made me LOL.

    Looks like something they pulled out from the bottom of the ocean.

    Can't agree more with this. And because many are now posting their ten cents worth, I will also do so. People are complaining about the quantity of rides being closed most likely because these are some of the most popular rides in the park and are their favorites. Although I have no statistical facts about what rides are the most popular, I know that a lot of small kids love the merry go round and many adults (especially the ones in my family) love wipeout and buzzsaw more than other rides. It also doesn't help that most of these closed rides are big thrill rides either (because then people start using the whole "1/3 of rides closed!!!" thing. Let's not forget that, as @themagician has said already, this is standard for any theme park and is not necessarily due to the accident at the park (although Log Ride is a different story). In June Movie World had Batwing, Superman, Green Lantern and Wild West Falls closed for quite a while which was shockingly bad. Remember that? Although we have our opinions on the state of the park, the state of the older attractions I will agree is quite poor. I however don't agree that we should exaggerate the situation that Dreamworld is in and how many rides are actually closed. Although they are taking a wee bit long to fix some of the closed rides, lets not forget that Dreamworld is still a completely enjoyable theme park with over 40 rides and attractions.
  11. Definitely go to Dreamworld, you will have an awesome time and especially kids in that age group. I actually think Dreamworld will be more enjoyable for kids of that age especially with lots of family rides and wiggles world for small kids. Plus some really cool animals too. Whitewaterworld is incredibly good, you and your kids will have a great time there with Pipeline Plunge and Wiggle Bay. Give it a shot

    Thats what it was like for me when I was there on a Wednesday a couple of weeks ago. It is silly really. People everywhere, although you want to know where you REALLY cannot move? The designated smoking area. It is always the most crammed.
