    Coronavirus and theme parks

    Actually, the free upgrade doesn't include the movie channels or sports channels (not that there is much live sport to watch at the moment), at least in my case, as we had only subscribed to the drama package.
  2. Some more pics from the park:
  3. Went to Funfields today. The park was extremely quiet (top temp was 19 deg combined with COVID-19 hysteria). Every attraction was walk on and most of the time we were allowed to stay on the ride for multiple cycles. Even got 5 or 6 runs on the toboggan without having to use the brake at all. Generally you encounter a slow kart in front of you. The Tiki boats are normally a 3 minute cycle. We were on them for at least 20 minutes without anyone else queueing for the ride. The only ride we had to wait for was the go karts. Although we only had to wait 2 cycles. I took some photos of the new rides and attractions previously requested in this thread: Some attractions have received updates to their theming as well: Photos were just taken on my phone, so apologies if quality isn't great

    Tower of Terror 2 closing

    Instead of replacing the current Giant Drop gondolas, what if you kept them and added a forward tipping gondola to the side if the tower replacing the TOT track? You would get a Falcons Fury style experience and that way guests have a choice of how thrilling they want their drop experience
  8. https://www.news.com.au/travel/travel-updates/incidents/rollercoaster-plunges-and-kills-two-at-theme-park/news-story/c247be2a260c0545044b4f8bc7301d5b Details in the article. Two people lost their lives and others injured on a coaster in a Mexico. The park is under investigation for negligent homocide.
  9. Only blue swimwear. Shame
  10. How does the queue logistics work with 6 slides on the one tower? I assume there is only 1 staircase to the top of the tower? So is it just a single queue that forms and it is pot luck which slide you get to ride when you reach your turn, where they point you to the first available slide? If you want to wait for a specific slide, but multiple people are already waiting for the same slide and multiple people already waiting on each of the other slides, the queue could could get very messy. Or are there mini queues at the the top of the tower assigned to each slide, that 4 or 5 people could wait in and you just join that back of the mini queue when directed for the slide you wish to ride? And you just let people past who want to ride other slides.

    How's This For A Wipeout Replacemet?

    I was joking in reference to the clear safety barriers surrounding the centre, because I know if I rode that, they would be getting a fair splattering for sure

    How's This For A Wipeout Replacemet?

    There are ample vomit guards in the centre of the attraction for good reason.. haha

    Wipeout Removal

    Wonder how long it will take to deem the chairs too risky of kids standing on them and putting a cage over them to prevent an accident. As a double bonus though, the cage would act as a secondary shade solution for maximum shade effect!

    Someone is coming to Dreamworld

    The Grim Reaper? (haven't seen much of him since the 1980's AIDS campaign ads!!)
  15. It was just the similarity that both of them were/are water based attractions with Thunder in their title and poth in popular and well known parks., For some reason it's the first thing I thought when I read the title of the show. I went overboard in saying comparisons could be drawn if something were to happen and probably over stated that part of my post way too far to be honest. Should have just left it as a personal observation 🤫
