    Theme Park Maintenance 2018

    Does that photo show Gingys being removed permanently? There is literally the motor and thats it
  4. And you are also the person who said Buzzsaw was going to open like 3 mondays ago?
  5. We're not trying to bore you with constant updates, or anyone on this forum. The constant updates I have been making lately mainly reflect the fact that rides, which are not being advertised on the Dreamworld website as closed, are closed. We're also trying to spark discussion on what could be going on with these rides. We're currently experiencing the unexpected closure of 2 major attractions (Wipeout, MDMC), which Dreamworld continues to fail to advertise, most likely because it might "look bad" on their website. The fact of the matter is, we have had 5 out of 9 big thrill rides closed for the past 4 and a half days. This is not acceptable coming from any theme park, and it's interesting that it hasn't been talked about more. At the end of the day, we're dealing with mass closures across the board for this theme park, and not all of these closures are being advertised. I do find it annoying when date changes, which are for rides not scheduled to open in months anyway, are posted on this forum. However, when attractions which are expected to open the next day get pushed back by an extra month, that's the stuff we should be posting. Like Wet'N'Wild's Surfrider, scheduled to open the next day, then boom, pushed all the way to 31st December. That sort of shit isn't cool, just like the falsely advertised Dreamworld closures. That's the stuff I want to know about before my planned visit to a theme park.
  6. Hot wheels pushed back to mid December Gingys pushed back to November Wipeout is still closed despite being listed as open on the website
  7. Hi guys, Shockwave broke down for nearly the whole day today and is now closed for unexpected maintenance similar to wipeout.

    Thunder River Rapids Incident Coronial Inquest

    Pretty sure its actually pronounced “Newman” just like that guy Gary Newman.
  10. There are at least 20 things which could be wrong with our 4 thrill rides shut at Dreamworld. These are highly advanced devices with numerous moving parts. BUT there are only 3-4 possible things wrong with our 2 waterslides undergoing extended maintenance. - STRUCTURAL (insanely unlikely given the age of the slides) - PUMPS (most likely issue, but this should be able to be resolved quickly) - REFURBISHMENT (such as repaint) - ELECTRICAL ISSUE (hydrocoaster magnetism) Most likely scenario is that for the hydrocoaster we are dealing with electromagnetism issues. Cool. Acceptable. The Rip however, should NOT be shut. IF we are dealing with issues with the pumps, a replacement should be able to arrive in a quick time frame. Literally days. Why cant Dreamworld just apply a band aid fix to the pump like they did on the TRR? The Rip is literally the safest fucking device, along with all of the other waterslides, to cheap out on maintenance for. Its a fucking waterslide made of fiberglass and a few pumps. Big deal. Sort out your shit, get these slides open, stop being lazy. Waterslides should NEVER need extended maintenance, only a few days a year. Gold Coast theme parks are literally the only parks I have seen globally to conduct such long periods of maintenance on waterslides. WNW GC is just as bad as WWW.
  11. Guess whos back back again wipeouts back tell your friend

    Dreamworld "I-Ride" Flying Theatre Discussion

    Hi guys, all references to the ride opening in "Late 2018" have been removed from the Dreamworld website and have been replaced with a generic "coming soon".
  13. Tailspin already went under 4 months of extended maintenance last year too
  14. Wipeout broke down yesterday and is now closed until further notice. We are now down to just 5 thrill rides operating. Since the maintenance page update yesterday the start dates appear accurate, Buzzsaw closed since 23rd March, Hot Wheels since 24 Aug, and TOT since 28 June. Normally they try and edit the start dates like they did last year with Wipeout however these dates do appear correct. The Buzzsaw message has also been removed from the website and all rides under maintenance have had this pop-up added:
  15. Let's not forget we are also dealing with WATERSLIDES undergoing extended maintenance, which have been opened for just over 12 years and should be operating fine. It is ridiculous to think that super tubes should need 5 months of maintenance, and The RIP should need 2.5 months.
