    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    At the end of the Jobkeeper program it is a requirement for ALL companies to employ that employee for at least 12 months after the program ending. This includes offering normal hours of employment. Yes they can take up voluntary redundancy if the employee agrees to it.

    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    1. Firework company probably has to Re-certify equipment due to months without use. 2. All rides will probably see this In the coming days. Staff will need to be refreshed on their operating procedures. Due to months of downtime, each ride may have to go through the 100 dispatch testing again. I remember storm coaster was going nonstop for 9 days before SeaWorld reopening.

    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    Wet’n’wild would be a difficult one to start over. As I work at an aquatic facility over the period we had to dump all of our water. When we had a date pools were then refilled with fresh water. However the pumps have to run for at least 8-10 hours a day and then it takes about 2-3 weeks to get the water stable. It is a very fine art to get the water levels stable from scratch.

    COVID-19 & Theme Park Closures

    Don’t forget the VRTP app was always coming, just delayed because of COVID. It is much like Disney. The normal ques will be open for everyone (physical distancing in place). However everyone will be able to reserve a spot in a virtual que as well. The virtual que is free just like Disney. Once you have ridden the attraction or a time limit you can then reserve your next virtual que. Virtual Que guest will go down the fast track lines and have their QR code scanned by the station attendant before admission on an attraction.

    Why did DC Rivals cost so little?

    I would think that new models would be cheaper because a business doesn't really know if a product is successful until someone tries it. As they start to produce more makes of the model they probably would be more expansive than the original because design features are probably tweaked. Example - Mack spinning extreme spin coaster at silver dollar city (time traveler) cost 26.5m USD. the new model being built a plopsaland I would estimate to cost at least $5m more. remember when ARROW tried to do prototypes they significantly discounted the person who bought it because the outcome was unknown. once the outcome is known and if it is successful they will jack the price up to profit from their previous loss on the prototype and try to make a small profit from it.

    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    With the people who are talking about budget cuts I would assume you are most likely incorrect. Most of these projects would of fully been paid for way before the covid19 issue happened. things that may get budget cuts within the park could be a new coat of paint on a handrail or some kind of project that has not already started.
  10. I don't think the Dreamworld is going to go near a water ride (rapids, logride, boat) for a very long time.. maybe some kind of water coaster like Pulsar or StormCoaster could be possible.

    COVID-19 & Theme Park Closures

    The majority of VRTP staff who are on the jobkeeper payments will resume work this week. Most will be on a minimum of 4 shifts per week, with management ensuring they use every dollar of the payment. Last week Raging Waters Sydney staff returned to work as well completing cleaning, painting and training duties.

    Drone usage at gold coast parks

    Hi @Flynn_Smith, Here are the CASA Regulations. Dreamworld / White Water World * As long as you launch from public land you are able to fly the drone over dreamworld. * No higher than 150ft or 45m * If recreational and no license you must have the UAV within eye sight. * Dreamworld Tower is classified as a local landmark and you must keep a 500m radius around it. Movie World * As long as you launch from public land you are able to fly the drone over Movieworld. * No higher than 150ft or 45m * If recreational and no license you must have the UAV within eye sight. * Movieworld borders a no fly zone so be careful where you fly! Wet'n'Wild * As long as you launch from public land you are able to fly the drone over Wet'n'Wild. * No higher than 150ft or 45m * If recreational and no license you must have the UAV within eye sight. * VFR aircraft operate within the airspace so you also need to be on the lookout and give aircraft right of way. SeaWorld * Personally I would not fly there * The app has not been updated since the new heli port was built * Below is the VTC Chart for pilots which gives most a clear indication if you know how to read it. * In other words, DO NOT FLY THERE!!! In regards to when the parks are operating, you must keep 150m away from the operational equipment (i.e. the rides).

    New Water Ride Concepts

    So it seems mack rides has developed a new concept for log flumes, rapid rides, and any other type of water attraction. This might be how we see the return of the log flume at Dreamworld or SeaWorld??? Or even a Jurassic Park style of ride on the Gold Coast?
