  1. Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    The website was updated frequently yesterday. This includes the removal of the Vintage Cars dates and also the removal of the Pandamonium closure day, and also they pushed pack a date on one of their kids rides.

    The vintage cars are now CLOSED until further notice. Someone told me they are going to be open once a month like how the steam train used to be? Is this true?

    So how were the vintage cars today?
  4. The Off Topic Topic

    This is off topic which is why I am posting it here. I have a couple of questions regarding employment at GC theme parks as I plan to attend Uni in the GC in 2020. 1) Is there a large waiting list? For the ride attendant, cleaning and desk jobs (the low paying jobs). 2) Are the hours generally suitable for a Uni student? As most want large flexibility. 3) How often do jobs come up for the low paying jobs? 4) If I start learning mandarin now would I be far more likely to get a job? Thanks.

    Exactly right. The ride was apparently just down for maintenance.
  6. A memorable ride at Rainbows End will be closing at Rainbows End on the 19st of Aug, the Pirate Ship! This is a sad time for many New Zealanders, as for some of us this is our first theme park ride we had ever been on. I personally are shocked that they would announce a closure so suddenly. On the bright side though, they will be building a new attraction there which will open in 2018. Remember when Chris talked about adding a dark ride? Perhaps it could be built be on this site. I hope whatever will be put there is as good as some of the major thrill rides! (Let's hope it's not a kiddie ride like AA). I am very pleased to see that Rainbows End is expanding and improving quickly. It's just so sad seeing such a fond memory go. Very little pirate ships left in the world now.

    Question: is the Wedgie only open on Weekends or is it down for maintenence? It's been like this for around 2 weeks now. By the way, TOT and Hop and Hoot closed early!

    Just some words from Dreamworld, that date for the Vintage Cars is not a confirmed opening date and I have been told it could open anytime before or after this date.

    2 cars would be extremely risky and unsafe. For the safety of everyone here at Parkz, dreamworld needs to use only 1 car at a time.

    Yeah, they will add some awesome harnesses and soft mats around the track in case we fall. A very exciting new experience I bet it will be.

    The wipeout though, OCTOBER!! Holy crap that's ages. I am so pleased however that it will reopen. Hopefully they will post something in regards to the Log ride soon. What's with those random closing dates though. Like wipeout 22nd June closed. haha.

    I tried a bit harder, got a little bit more out of them, haha. But they probably thought I had some form of mental illness.
  13. Rainbow's End Recent Developments/Attractions

    I also live in NZ, Rainbows End is a surprisingly well maintained theme park with some excellent rides, especially the coca cola corkscrew which is still operating well, a bit bumpy but hasn't gone under maintenance since 2015 so obviously in a healthy state. I went there in march, three days before AA opened. Would love to see another ride there soon. Gotta say it's definitely something worth checking out if your in Auckland.

    Thanks for clearing some things up guys. We will see what happens in the near future and hope for the best for Dreamworld. That would be an awesome idea in every single way. Email Craig and let him know

    Lol. Absolutely right there with the business thing. I was putting myself in their shoes and making decisions based on past business experiences when things go wrong. My post may have been a bit inaccurate and poor quality by saying I promise, but I got the spelling and grammar correct didn't I? My post was trying to outline the following, that in my opinion: - Eureka has a 0.5/10 chance of reopening. - Log Ride and VC has a 8/10 chance of reopening. - Wipeout has a 7.5/10 chance of reopening - Dreamworld won't do much with Gold Rush. Either way, lets hope DW becomes something awesome! I also thought he just sits in his office waiting for the pay check. Interesting to hear what you are saying. Let's hope that they turn Dreamworld into the next best thing to Disneyland.
