  1. Snapping like that is not going to help your case.
  2. Think it's worth point out a Fright Night has been added for the 1st of November (Friday). Just in case anyone wanted to go on what will probably be an extremely quiet night.
  3. Definitely not giving out wristbands all night. Only up until about 5:20-5:25ish until day time visitors are clear. But sorry, didn't realise you worked in admissions for Village. I'll be sure to take note of that next time
  4. Yeah, you obviously went in when wristbands were still being given out, but when you came back it just clocked over to the park being clear of daytime visitors (therefore, no need for wristbands). The guy was only doing his job. Anyways, back on topic. I went on Friday night (the one night I wasn't working) and must say I enjoyed it for the most part. I preferred the opening this year and thought it was well done with the lighting and fire effects, along with the monsters/zombies sliding along their knees into the crowd to get some good scares. But what probably could have been done better w
  5. ^ Or you may have just missed the person at the front gate giving out the wristbands People have a tendency to simply walk right by.
  6. Movie World has paid for two private charter buses to take guests from Movie World to Helensvale Station and then express to Surfers. I believe the first bus comes at 10:45 and the second at 11. I suggest you get there much earlier though as it is a first come first served basis and everyone has to get a cab/other transportation.
  7. Gold Coast 8 October, 2013. A multi-million dollar advertising blitz will boost visitors to Gold Coast theme parks after being launched by the Queensland Government, Village Roadshow and Ardent Leisure today. Premier Campbell Newman said the Theme Park Capital of Australia campaign would reinforce the Gold Coast’s position as Queensland’s leading tourist destination by focusing on its world-class theme parks. “Our theme parks rank among the very best in the world, and are ‘must-do’ experiences for any holiday on the Gold Coast,” Mr Newman said. “That’s the message we’ll be taking to all of
  8. I've seen Fright Night ads on television (rarely) but have also heard a bit of radio advertising on Sea FM. As many have commented above, these events will sell themselves.
  9. This is what was appearing in surveys last year (it was between this and a eurocoaster and was up to guest vote). At 145m, I believe this will be the tallest ride, or one of the tallest, in the world, probably something they'd like to have for marketing. (Correct me if I'm wrong).
  10. We will get 5 mazes this year. 3 currently confirmed (Conjuring, Evil Dead, Scream): https://twitter.com/FrightNightsAU/status/370817201726439424/photo/1 "Oh what could possibly be next? #2announcementstogo"
  11. Any small amounts are typically allowed in. If you are caught trying to take in large amounts of food, you'll typically be asked how many people it's for and you may be told to eat it outside the park at the picnic table. If you've got some homemade sandwiches (like max 4), there SHOULDN'T be any issues.
  12. Currently it's pretty random. Obviously to the water parks you can take your own food in (other than commercial). Sea World doesn't have security at the front gate as far as I am aware. Movie World will have security do random checks and the front gate staff also do checks, but you can always just pop out to the picnic table outside the park to eat it.
  13. Yes, that happened on some of the nights last year. A few nights still had lines open later. As far as I'm aware it all depends on the line lengths. As for 'pushing' people out, this usually began when the last maze had shut and security had been notified.
  14. Frightnights.com.au What I've gathered from the site, the park will be open from 6 to 10:30, outdoor rides (Green Lantern, Batwing, Superman and Arkham) being open until 9 as per usual, and Scooby/Mazes open till 10:00 with the final 30 minutes having no mazes open. "As the sun goes down, unspeakable horrors are happening at Movie World and nothing is as it seems. From the moment you arrive at Fright Nights you will be fighting for your escape among the dead, the demons and the psychopathic maniacs while the merciless Ringmaster commands the soulless creatures of the night. Welcome to Movie
  15. I understand they're just your opinions on things, but you sound VERY Dreamworld biased, Gary. "...since they are Australia's largest theme park." And why would it be best for MW and WnW to stay apart? I think it'd be amazing if they were joined up with a CityWalk style attraction ("downtown-disney-esque") and would provide a bit of entertainment after the parks have shut (and hey, that means additional revenue for the parks).
  16. ^ Myfun has been a separate business to Village Roadshow since the sale of the Sydney properties, and that's why the gift cards for Myfun cannot be used at the gate.
  17. ^^ Storm Coaster has been delayed to Summer.
  18. ^ Phones have been able to be scanned at the turnstiles & ticket booths since about February. Those new handheld scanners attached to each turnstile and booth PC are what scan the phones. They can also often scan cracked screens too. I believe the website was also updated to say that they can present their phone.
  19. Welcome, new member. You'll probably cop a lot of crap for posting pointless stuff and starting new threads for topics already in discussion, so I suggest just making sure that your posts are in the right/existing threads and making sure your posts add something useful/engaging to discussions. Enjoy the onslaught of flames
  20. Those figures are VERY outdated. The half-year report from Village showed 2.8 million attendance across the 3 parks (IN SIX MONTHS). Meanwhile Dreamworld reported a massive drop in attendance.
  21. There's no doubt, if everything goes to plan, Wet'n'Wild Sydney will be better (and that does annoy me a bit) but Wet'n'Wild Gold Coast will still draw the bigger crowds because people will still come to the Gold Coast for Movie World, Sea World, Dreamworld, Etc. and will go to Wet'n'Wild whilst there.
  22. Well, there may have been only two rides operating that day. This is Dreamworld. On another note, I have heard that Dreamworld are in talks for the development of a major new ride. Now, before everyone flames me about the Dippin' Dots Guy, I'm not going to post my source. The person is in a managerial position. I'm just saying because I've seen WWW Worker post something in here too.
  23. We stayed at Howard Johnson. Not the friendliest of staff, but it had good facilities and was next to the diners and only a 5 minute walk from the Disney entrance.
