    Thunder River Rapids Incident Coronial Inquest

    And it comes out just a day after DW announces $35 million + in expenditure to be spent next year, the biggest investment in over a decade. How convenient. They were waiting for this to happen, weren't they? Next.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Again, as said, the yellow track is only an indicative render. It is subject to change , DW have stated this themselves.

    Well I wouldn't think they'd build a tiger themed coaster so far away from Tiger Island...

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Well a video is up, a full POV (sorry to steal your thunder here Slick). No surprises here, but this confirms it be going in TRRR and Eureka's spot and not where the Ampitheatre is being pulled down. It will be right next door to Buzzsaw. Something interesting I observed is that Hot Wheels is nowhere to be seen in the render, yet nearby rides in Ocean Parade like Claw can be spotted. Could it be end of the road for that coaster, facing the axe before TOT?

    WWW - New slide tower

    Well DW doesn't have any good body slides that don't cut your back so Ardent is patching up a rather obvious hole in their lineup. Local pool slides have really stepped up a notch in the last few years too. Any body slide these days could be considered 'local council' material.

    A new ampitheatre was originally intended to go in TRRR's site where the coaster is going now. I wouldn't be surprised if all of Blue Lagoon ends up being pulled down to fit the coaster. I do not think TRRR's site will be enough space to fit all the layout in. As already said there is ground work being done near Cave of Waves which is where the new tower will be going. No supports or slide pieces on site for now but construction looks to be on track for a November/December 2019 finish and I wouldn't be shocked to learn DW is getting the ride ready for the busy summer season. Slides don't take particularly very long to build especially when compared to bigger stuff like coasters.

    It won't be Star Trek. Star Trek only goes 85 km/h and its layout is substantially shorter than 1.2km. The layout in the Bulletin article is a blatant giveaway. It is more than certainly a Blue Fire clone.

    I'm confused... So Copperhead Strike and Slinky Dog Dash are Blue Fire clones now? Blue Fire isn't a multi launch coaster is it?

    As mentioned previously, my money is on Dreamworld axing the Gold Rush theme altogether when the masterplan takes effect. With the two core attractions of that area now gone, that area is virtually dead. Gold Rush gets a new theme with the Blue Fire clone's addition with Buzzsaw either being removed or rethemed. Not only that, but keeping Gold Rush could possibly conjure up memories of the TRRR disaster and DW want to move as far away from that as possible. I could suggest integrating SV into the new area with an aviation theme. Theming the Blue Fire clone to WW2 era aviation would be a very unique and interesting concept in Australian theme parks if executed correctly. If they want to keep a general 1800s era theme, why not try one-up MW down the road and make it a Wild West area? Plenty of possibilities to give that area a new look. @Gold Coast Amusement Force , rocky hollow is a different part of the park to Gold Rush. Log Ride and Giant Drop are part of that area.

    Spinning car? Hard pass. I think DW will try to emulate MW's success with DC Rivals Backwards and do a backwards row on their own coaster.

    I do not think there will be enough room in that spot to fit the ride now that we know the exact layout. Where the Ampitheatre and probably Blue Lagoon is being ripped down is where the coaster will be going.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Well that's some really good news. A Blue Fire clone is a great marquee attraction that Dreamworld really needs, and a good coaster for Australia in general really. It'll be a great attraction considering they are investing $16-20 million. I believe DW will axe the Gold Rush theme and build a new area on the site. But again, the results come tomorrow, so we'll possibly see what is the park's future then.

    Movie World Maintenance 2019

    Kids area needs a refurb. Give it all a new coat of paint and some theming updates with the same IP in mind. They havent added all that much in 20 years. It all looks so old now, in desperate need of a refresh.

    The new giga for Kings Island just got announced. FYI. The brake run on this coaster is taller than anything at Alton Towers.
