    Tower of Terror 2 closing

    While I completely understand why some enthusiasts would rather see TOT go, I personally think the refurb is a great move - because as long as DW have TOT, they get to say that they have the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Australia regardless of how much better Rivals is and that is a huge drawcard. I think a refurb would be really well received by the GP too cause it's a bit of a nation-wide inside joke that TOT reaches a pretty pathetic spot on the tower these days and has for many years. Getting it back to the heights (and speed) it used to reach would make it a notable flagship attraction for the park again.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Dreamworld mentioned it in the comments of a Facebook post. They also said they’re currently in the first stages of pre-construction and they’re releasing a video of the Coaster rendering in the coming days, which means we may get some details such as the name/theme and a rough opening date estimate (although I feel like they’d be hesitant after SV)

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    I had a feeling this would be the new addition since Mack have been palming out this model to various parks in Asia recently. I rode Blue Fire at Europa Park a few years back and really enjoyed it - it’ll be a great and much needed addition to Dreamworlds line up!

    Dreamworld Maintenance 2019

    TOT is scheduled to go back into maintainence in just a few days though.. so essesntially DW have randomly opened the ride for a couple of days in the middle of its annual maintainence? And they’ve closed Tailspin only for the few days TOT will be open.

    Dreamworld Maintenance 2019

    Came across this on Instagram today - looks like the long downtime for HWSW has more to do with a bit of a train refurb?

    Dreamworld / WWW Update

    Buzzsaw was back open today - but wipeout did break down in the afternoon and has been shut since.

    Temporary fences are gone! Not the Boxing Day opening we were hoping for but at least all construction is completed. The curb entrance is just blocked off by a few retractable belt stanchions now.

    Tailspin and the rip have also reopened early from maintainence, and escape from Madagascar will be reopening on Boxing Day rather than early January. This means dreamworld/www will be starting the summer holiday rush with only 1 planned ride closure (HWSW).

    Sky Voyager now shows on ride express (and Zombie Evolution has been removed)
  12. I know that.. lol. I’m just saying there are parts of that original set that were sacrificed in favour of something that was meant to be technically stunning and wowing riders - and it’s not. Don’t get me wrong, I love the new set additions but the tech stuff is just so bad. The ‘next generation’ potential was there and we were pretty convinced they were going to execute it well. But they didn’t 🤷🏼‍♂️
  13. I’ve been waiting for someone to say this! I work with projection all the time and have seen just about every example of projection mapping ever - the quality of this apparent “refurb” is atrocious and I’ve seen better content created by students. It’s not even projection mapping technically speaking, because it’s not being mapped to anything. Projection is so easy to make look tacky and I think movie world have just shown that you’ll never beat the charm of a physical set.
