    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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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).

    Dreamworld / WWW Update

    Sky Voyager now shows on ride express (and Zombie Evolution has been removed)
  6. 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 🤷🏼‍♂️
  7. 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.

    Theme Park Maintenance 2018

    Buzzsaw re-opening was just pushed back to after christmas, HWSW to mid feb plus Escape from Madagascar and Hydrocoaster to early January. Wipeouts maintenance was also put back up to what it originally was before the breakdown last month.

    Theme Park Maintenance 2018

    And here we go
  11. Ride express has been showing MDMC and Wipeout as closed for a few days which is probably why a lot of people on here are under the impression they haven’t been operating.
  12. Dreamworld have done another shuffle of their maintenance dates, most significantly pushing HWSW’s opening back again to December 30th and Tailspin will now be down for all of December instead of the two weeks that was originally planned for the end of this month. Wipeout is still listed as open on the website but from what I’ve heard hasn’t been in action since it broke down? Can anyone confirm if it’s been up and running or not?
  13. A video of the i-Ride structure inside the building found on instagram, looking like most of the main framework for where the gondolas sit is complete. This also pretty much confirms the ride will have a 60 seat capacity over 6 seperate gondolas, over 2 levels, facing the same orientation as the original dreamworld cinema. The caption of the post also states that the gondola installation will be happening very shortly.
  14. Motocoaster is down today meaning that only 4/9 big thrill rides are operating and the only coaster open at the park is Escape to Madagascar. Lol.
