    COVID-19 & Theme Park Closures

    Busch gardens is a ghost town, when I went there couple of years ago it was quiet but that is... not sure if they're physically limiting numbers or if people are scared or if he just didn't get people on camera but that is less than 25% of normal park operations, that is probably 15% in comparison to what I got which was already almost all walk on rides except cheeter hunt (30min wait, and although he shows 65min wait, trains were launching every 2mins at full capacity opposed to the long wait he showed), which makes me wonder why even open at all? as they're not selling much merch with stores closed, and running trains with so many empty seats aren't they loosing more money by turning the rides on?

    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    Needs some landscaping done, and a fair bit different to what they portrayed wonder what the final product will look like with plants and signage.

    DCR bad efficiency

    As I said above they don't use the lift hill as a section, the only time I've ever seen them stop the train on the lift hill is either when the chain lift has had electrical issues and it randomly stops mid hill (not seen it happen since the year it launched but no saying it hasn't happened since) or the last ride of the day when they've got two trains, they cut the power to the lift hill for like 30 seconds dunno why but maybe some shut down check.

    I've only gone once at that time of year to MW and it was 50min+ queue all day scooby got as bad as 2 hours but that was between boxing day and new years... never ever again! best time is probably at least a week after schoolies until boxing day. double trains but lowish crowds, after boxing day you have the annual leave of half the country with 1-2 weeks holiday and a truck load of guests at tourist zones e.g. theme parks, I would avoid until at least the 12th of Jan before trying to enjoy a theme park after boxing day. It is unusual that they would do that in the busiest part of the year but stuff happens e.g. DCR being closed on my first fright nite (the one ride I went for), so yes it can be hit and miss.

    DCR bad efficiency

    damn sorry mate i’m on my phone and i’m not proof reading lmao I'm pretty sure he was referring to me I put one of my 'brake' as 'break'... Not sure what is considered “busy” for MW. but 60 for super man all day consistently and dc was never bellow 60 either. By the sounds of that it they just lack the staff for the day, if both superman and DCR are 60mins + I'm guessing this is during feb since they've had GL, Batwing & AA were down? Queues would build crazy but it being off peak they don't actually expect many guests so they've likely not scheduled enough staff for the day thinking crowds wouldn't get that big. That's would be my guess but if I'm wrong and this is on school holidays I would be a little surprised.

    I'm not sure if you mean the second car has already hit the brake run and they wait 2-3mins in the sun before it goes into station or if its total 2-3 mins between trains switched into station? because a train waiting in the sun for 2-3mins ain't normal operations from when I've been there but it should take around 2 and a half mins for one train to run through when they have two trains running. Aprox 1min and 50 seconds to go from station to end of brake run, with about 15 second wait after to go into station if the other train takes off straight away than you have to wait for everybody to get off and new people to get on but that should take less than the 2mins for the other train to make it back. As stated in the post above there is no mid break section and the chain lift does not act as section break session mostly because they don't like to turn it off midway lift hill unless its the last ride of the day, so you only have the station and the brake run as section breaks between the two actual trains, meaning that one train requires to be at the end of the brake run before the other one is allowed to climb the lift hill.

    Was Storm Coaster worth the money?

    I'm pretty sure the answer from most people will be no. I enjoy it with my nieces but that's about it, its not thrilling, its short, the only thing I like about it is how smooth it is on the coaster track, if it was longer perhaps it would of been worth while, the one in europa park known as "Poseidon" is a much better example of what the ride should be like. Storm is a ride that tries to fit a log ride with a coaster but ultimately fails for the price tag it was imo, the ride would be allot better if it was longer and had a lower height requirement so that a smaller audience can enjoy it rather than older ones who haven't really got much appeal to such a ride.

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    I was there on sunday as well went on it twice about 3:30 to 4:00 and yes it was still broken door number 3, the amount of people that stood there waiting for it to open despite an obvious traffic cone in front the door was amusing

    Movie World Overflow Carpark update

    Here I was thinking they were just adding more parking so they could add more rides by building ones on land reclaimed from their main parking lot.... wishful thinking or stupid thinking I dunno but more rides!.. I know I know MW is fine atm, its seaworld that needs more..

    Sky Voyager Discussion

    Only one I know of is Ready Player One but that song is just a slowed down version of the original from the 1971 willy wonka EDIT: I can't actually remember if the physical phrase is actually said in the movie though, all I remember of the phrase is the song trailer making me wanna go see it.

    Village theme parks extended trading hours

    Well its not like we'll ever get the US parks times, during summer holidays there is like 10am to 9-10pm six flags parks for 2 months there are also other parks open more hours but no need for comparing sure they have way more people over there and bigger parks but alas they can't even do that for the busiest two weeks of the year here. In all seriousness isn't it a loss of opportunity for revenue?

    Summer crowds at theme parks

    Amusing when you see your own car in others random pictures, it mostly felt like families were there. Lines were shortish with mostly walk on lines, exceptions for that from what I saw were MD sidecars, ToT II and Big Red Car over half an hour queues during 12-3pm times. WWW was more busy but it was hot yesterday so to be expected, the lines for floats out front of rippers/huey never got past 20 mark thankfully as for other water rides not sure didn't get an opportunity. Only about 60-70% lounge chairs in the park had towels or some item on them. Annoyed with buzzsaw though, they have two signs out saying buzzsaw 'this way' yet I never saw it running, or a sign out front saying closed to stop you from walking down to it only to find the queue shut off with no one there.
  13. I would hope not, because that would mean Six flags or Cedar fair would be considered untouchable when yet I preferred going to Disney or universal by far when neither have such size coasters, only exceptions would be their flagship parks MM & CP imo.

    Sea World lighthouse - Star Flyer replacement

    I can only recall see'ing nick or sea themed items in sea world, it would make me think VRTP placed a ride in the wrong park and should be put in MW's kid zone if they didn't (though considering the height restriction 120cm it wouldn't really go there either), like how surfrider would of suited sea world better than WnW, though personally I'd never wanna see such a thing in MW. I would really hope so as well, at least make it sea themed considering its surrounded by creatures of the deep or maybe colour it like the light house it just replaced.
  15. I forget when it exactly was but I think it was around July-August after winter school holidays, been on it about 3 to 4 times, no lasers, no smoke, no music, for some reason it was more common to have no music than no lasers was annoying and had you been on it more than once before it was very boring running that way, all you were entertained by was the sound of the fake screams of the cart further ahead of you, than do a fake scream yourself. The lasers in scooby should never be turned off!
