  1. Green Lantern was back open today but broke down once in the morning and also in the afternoon with riders on the lift hill. I believe it also e-stopped with riders on the first block brakes over the weekend which is why it was down briefly.
  2. https://www.instagram.com/p/CI2stVIL6JH/?igshid=9qdudgicsblg Came across this post on Instagram, caption suggests that crew are trained and ready to operate Vortex. Opening “very very soon”.
  3. According to the Sea Word website, Trident is still in the works and should be opening alongside Leviathan in June of next year.
  4. Ardent Leisure announced it themselves in a statement to the Australian Stock Exchange. They also announced that they will be receiving financial assistance under the Queensland Government’s COVID-19 Industry Support Package and Queensland Tourism Icons Program 2020. You can read here:
  5. Thanks for clearing that up, I get where you're coming from! If anyone is wanting to understand the ride/films link to racism I think @Pyro's post outlines it really well. I will say I agree about the choice of IP - I'm happy with the decision, but it definitely wasn't my first guess or choice for the re-theme.
  6. .. I was talking about the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Lol. I think it's clear that you have your stance and I'm not going to try and change your mind. I will say that calling the Black Lives Matter movement a 'trend' is awful considering the reason for its beginnings and if your argument is cancel culture, then I'm struggling to see what the problem here is because if we're cancelling anything in this instance it's racism? If you view that as a bad thing then I don't know what to say. Anyway, I'm tapping out of this one before it turns messy. I'm glad to see Princess Tiana get her dues and
  7. I understand the loss of nostalgia when it comes to this kind of thing - I wasn't happy when they decided to re-theme Tower of Terror but at the same time, I understand the need to update and modernise (as I think most people in these forums do). Yes, the ride itself doesn't feature any of the racist subject matter of Song of the South, but to say this is a result of propaganda and cancel culture is a little extreme. I think this re-theme has been a long time coming and whilst it probably has been pushed forward by current events I don't see how anyone could see this as a negative step forward
  8. Pretty sure Walt Disney himself said that he never wanted a ride to stay the same forever and he wanted people to have different experiences. The ride may be a classic but it's a no brainer to re-theme, a new generation will love this.
  9. Sidewinder now won’t be re-opening until the end of May
  10. What I assume to be scenic pieces for Vortex are currently being stored in Nickelodeon Land
  11. I do think realistically HWSW has no more than 5 or so years left in it, and once gone I’d love to see another coaster there. I think the best fit would be a Gerstlauer Infinity coaster, like Hangtime at Knotts. Would fit nicely in the footprint and a good fit aesthetically for both the parks skyline and the ocean parade theme - it’d be great to keep the WWW coaster/slide interaction too.
  12. Some BTS pics of the Fully 6 Slide Tower construction as found on Instagram
