  1. Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2018

    Try harder “see more” means you... see more.
  2. There are a couple of paywalled DW articles that have appeared in the last 24 hours on news sites but the usual work around on google doesn’t seem to work anymore. One I about a new CEO from the US
  3. Eureka Mountain replacement dark ride

    Not aware of that at all. Think it was speculation
  4. Seemed a pretty clear statement from VTP on pricing - they see themselves comfortably as the dominant player in the business, so they will charge as us. I really don’t think we’ll see discounting outside of a potential family style Buy 3 Get 1 Free type of deal
  5. Haha.. didn’t say you were strange Push, just that your idea was..
  6. That’s one of your stranger ideas Push... The water parks in the UK are indoors because for half the year it’s snowing or not far off, and the other half of the year is about as warm as a QLD winter. It’s indoors or frostbite.

    So I can wear a camera on my head, but not a hat... stupidest thing I’ve ever heard... “Headwear is worn at the riders risk and will not be retrieved”. Simple.

    WnW buggy was new once too, but I don’t recall it getting a heap of airtime here. Is it still even running? Tbh I don’t know anyone personally that done it, or heard about it in ages. I guess out of site out of mind - bit harder to miss Top Golf

    Forgot to mention in my RHLR review the other day.. strange occurance.. guy in the group in front of me was wearing a baseball cap, and a go pro with the head strap over the cap. Now I thought “oh for sure they’ll tell him to remove the go pro”. But nope, the ride attendant tells him, once he is already in the boat, “sorry mate, no hats allowed” so he off comes his hat and the go-pro, and then the ride op says “oh you can keep the go pro on your head mate, just not the hat” hmm...

    KDV Sports has a great reputation, haven’t had a chance to check it out yet myself.
  11. Let's be honest about Topgolf

    I know right... i actually think they have done well with top golf. It’s had a social media presence for a few month already despite being still 4-5 months away. They’ve shown enough to keep people interested. I think they’ve done well.

    Well Kingpin has only recently opened in SE QLD, and it’s all the way in Chermside. If it was located closer maybe it would have had the same reaction? In saying that, Kingpin isn’t THAT far removed from AMF. Top Golf ticks boxes as it is 1. Close to the theme parks 2. Close to the tourist centre 3. Far removed from anything else available on the GC or Brisbane 4. A fairly well known brand for those than have been to the US or have an interest in golf 5. It’s being marketed well by VTP

    So had my first ride on the ‘new’ boats yesterday. Loading and unloading is painfully slow and terribly thought out. No physical barrier at the top of your stairs and ride op at the bottom constantly telling people to not stand at the top of the stairs but instead stand back before the stairs. Stupidity. Sometimes passengers desembarked in the traditional unload platform, whereas sometimes they got off on the loading spot (no idea why given only one channel/side is in operation). Boats constantly overshot the loading platform too, well not overshot it, but because of the stupid frame for the roof there wasn’t enough room between the platform barriers and the frame to get into the front seat - they literally had people getting in the back and climbing over the seat divider to get to the front! Due to the inefficient unloading - there was a constant backup of logs, and apparently no stacking/blocking design as empty boats constantly collided with boats people were attempting to climb into. all in all - it’s stupid, and whilst I am no insurance assessor, my honest belief is that there is far more chance of an injury or incident in the current form of loading than there ever was before

    Love how informative that poster is...

    I believe that’s the point... everyone on the Gold Coast is well versed in the “If it’s flooded, forget it” tagline which appears everywhere during storm season. This basically is a way of using the councils own public safety campaign against the development.
