  1. Engineer friend says hes not booked to work on Superman Escape's system until the 11th, so expect it to be continuously pushed back until at least the 11th FYI
  2. What’s going on with the new slides? Went the other week and they were all closed. Then drove by the other day to go to Paradise Country and it looked like the bottom ones were operating. Now looking at maintenance schedule it says they’re closed. How inconsistent for a new attraction?!
  3. I did an entire Disney/Universal trip by myself in 2019, 3 weeks solo all for parks in FL and CA. Loved it, get to choose whatever you want to do and your so encapsulated by everything going on I was always having fun, never felt bored or regretted it. Im also thinking a trip in October, prices still look insane in comparison to 2019 though, guessing just because of pent up demand and the 50th celebration.
  4. Yo just a big FYI! Despite Dreamworld sending AP’s emails saying the ride would operate up until the grand opening, they have decided to not open the ride today. Bit pissed off tbh, came all the way down expecting to ride and the damn greeter just says too bad come back tomorrow and deal with the mass crowds.
  5. While his story is grim. He was doing his job at the end of the day, feels like if he wanted to sue someone it should be QPS.
  6. Went on the last night so this infomation is pretty irrelevant, but I thought the event was fantastic! Again the free redemption so just went to check it out. Got to the park at 3pm and then was able to stay inside from 5-5.30 during the transition rather than dealing with big parking lines or lines at the gate. Great time was had, the Mansion was great! Althouhg the harvest snacks area wasn't open tonight because it sounds like they ran out of some items, didnt really mind the event was free anyway. Loved that every inch of the park had decoration and music playing. Good job dreamworld.
  7. Honestly with water rides I feel much safer with looser restraints, the ability to wiggle out of the lap bar gives me much more peace of mind if something were to go arry in the water. IE see the Splash Mountain incident a few months back wheere the boat started taking on water and everyone just got out of the boat. Anyone else feel like this?
  8. Is there an option to wait in the park after normal hours end before the event starts to aboid the line drama?
  9. I've only done Riddlers at MM, and I hate em, so uncomfortable, and the train got stuck on the brakerun and was in the most uncomfrotable clostrophobic position ever. The expereince isnt different enough to warrant the discomfort imo.
  10. Went tonight, getting in the car park was a shitfight. Got to the Southport bridge at 5.30, didn't get into the park until 6.30. The laser/water/firework show was pretty good tbh, better than expected. Lots of atmos around and street performers, not a bad lil event to be honest. Don't have kids so didn't do the treasure trail stuff, just the show, Storm coaster and a good old walk around but all pretty good fun. I must say, Covid protocols really went out the window, more people without masks than with which is concerning considering our current state, is what it is though.
  11. So has anyone purchased these that doesn't live on the GC? Would DW be checking address to see if youre a Local for these we think? Brisbane postcode doesn't let you get the discount.
  12. Went for couple hours today, saw a few cycles so theyre getting them through. Im still so impressed with the area and how its turning out. Park was surprisingly quiet for school holidays, only 10 min waits for everything, think everyone must've been at WWW since the carpark was full and it was stinkin hot today.
  13. Im in the camp that it's either that or I won't watch it, and I feel I have delivered the guy enough Youtube Premium and Adsense revenue to justify my support. Its 2021 support who you wanna support but don't expect money for inferior (likely) work. In all honestly he probably would make more uploading it to Youtube and getting the adsense from it.
  14. Yall hating on the path but I think its great, atleast they did something other than a plain path, and give that a few months of wear and grit and i think it'll actually look good with a bit of fade. The area is shaping up to look really good in my opinion especially for DW standards.
  15. Torrented Closed for Storm, but wasn't amazing, wouldve just prefered a normal BSF video on it instead tbh. I will watch (not pay for though) This is how we Roll, but dont expect great things considering its Taylor from Coaster Studios and hes such a brat, and I have little confidence in his ability to properly put together a documentary. Any interviews with Shilke and Grubb im interested in listeing to though!
  16. Think we might see a scaled back version similar to what USF did last year, a couple of houses allowed for walk through during the day? I can see them doing upcharge mazes for day guests in October, especially if they have already put work into building them? Still 2 months-ish until peak spooky time, maybe we could get a solid vaccination rate by then 🤷 (doubtful)
  17. I agree so dumb that they aren't pathng to GD, that area already feels so disconenected from the rest of the park. GD has virtually no line whenever I go and its arguably the best attraction atm.
  18. We all knew this day was coming though right. I think a lot of us saw Buzzsaw as a bad investment when it was announced a decade ago. In other news the Dreamworld train is getting an upgrade
  19. If i had to pick AK is probs my favourite park of them all (sans Disney SEA). All the WDW resort parks blow me away. DCA was fun but didn't stand out as incredible in my mind. Even what I've seen from the video of Avengers campus doesnt blow me away.
  20. There is a video from the next raft just a moments after the raft flipped which is pretty horrifying to watch, parents standing in the raft water screaming for help as their children are stuck upside down in the raft. Onlookers in the next boat with little ability to help. It does seem from the video like this takes place mid ride though in just the standard sort of rapids area and has nothing to do with conveyor belts. There was a discussion on reddit I saw about the negligence to react on the parks behalf, some people saying that similar Intamin models at other parks have lifeguards stationed throughout the midcourse with e-stop buttons that drain the whole ride in 30 seconds, and if Adventureland had these procedures, that death could've been avoided after the flip. Anyone know if that statement holds true, I don't ever recall seeing lifeguards posted throughout whenever I rode Disney raft rides (not that im very attentative). Seems like the number of theme park incidents are pretty high this year so far. Edit: video of the incident has now been made private, probably for the best as its hard to watch
  21. Went today for the afternoon. REALLY enjoyed this event. So great to see so much streetmosphere, was a real great vibe. Marvin the Martian was so good to see again at the Roxy, please let it stay forever, leaps and bounds better than the poorly cut together Yogi clips, and MtM has some actualy 'Studios Park-ness' too it, that the park has been lacking in since all the DC came along. Wait times not too bad since most things are operating, would've been nice to have two trains for DCR, but even with one was only 45 minute wait (posted 70). WWF only 15 min wait (posted 30). Parade was pretty good, kind of expected something more from the parade, some story maybe, but I still enjoyed it and some of the floats are great. Gremlins float was awesome imo, a real throwback. Honestly I can't believe the event is only running for two weeks! Wish it was longer.
