  1. I’ve had it personally confirmed from park management that the ride is not yet finished, and they just wanted it open for the peak holiday period. Apparently it will be “finished” in a few weeks

    Sea World Carnivale 2019

    Well... just back from Carnivale and what can I say but VTP striking out 3 times with all 3 night events noticably poorer in quality & quantity to their previous runs. - less food options, and of those options the quality was worse - no stage in the main food area anymore, so no live singing at all, just the odd roving entertainment coming through and the girl swinging off the rope/ring off the roof. - Aquacolour clocked in at 8mins vs 20mins last year - ambience and general atmosphere just wasn’t there - and I think that is partially due to its location at SW not allowing for a parade, and the summer setting meaning it’s still light for more than half the event which doesn’t help with creating a Carnivale atmosphere. Whilst the always good buffet saved WC, there was no overall redeeming feature here. Would not pay for entry.

    Sea World Maintenance 2019

    When it comes to our theme parks, I think the definition of “normal” is fairly ambiguous
  4. Latest email communication from DW (out today) states it’s still “a few” weeks away.
  5. Am I right in believing that Trolls Village will be departing in April? Seem to remember it being stated as a 12 month attraction?

    Shaun the Sheep Coming to Paradise Country

    Whilst probably not of too much interest to most of you, thought i'd upload some photos and a bit of a trip report from a visit just prior to Christmas that i've only just got to. All in all i think the Shaun the Sheep integration in the park is fantastic. Multiple photo opps with some quality statues all over the park starting from the carpark walkway. The show is entertaining for the kids, and a fresh concept for the park, definitely done "in house" as opposed to a port from somewhere else - my only complaint would be the need for air con or more fans in the area The tractor ride is simple, but i had hoped it would have been more elaborate. It is literally a 4-5 minute ride from in front of the current Stockman show paddock, up the path between the main building and the kangaroo walk through/photo shop, past the bird feeding area (which has a "stop" for departing passengers only, no one can get on at this point, though its only 1 minute from the main stop anyway). It would be have been nice for it to take in the surrounds of the park or the extremities at least and turn it into a 10-15 min ride. The tractor/train itself is well theme. The kids playground is just that... the waterplay area i missed as we were heading to Wet N Wild afterwards. The new building up towards to the top of the park ("Adventure Camp") is quite good - it has air con (yay) and bean bags/seats to sit down and relax with STS playing on the screen. There is free colouring/arts stations for the kids. There is also an upcharge activity which i have to say is actually well worth it and not just a money making gimmick. For $10 you get a set of clay and instructions on how to build a clay shaun the sheep and his dog friend (NFI what his name is). Once complete, you take it over to a little station that is set up as a farm with toy animals etc, and using an ipad you make your own little claymation clip (basically making small movements between each photo, which are then all put together into a clip - roughtly 50-60 shots making a 5 or so second clip - exactly the same process claymation animation uses, which is then emailed to you. The additions have probably padded the park out to a 3/4 day experience if you wanted to see all the shows - but given we had seen them all and really just went to see the new additions, it was about 2 hours before we were burning up and headed to WnW.
  7. Yep... those m1 billboards are prime real estate in December, the space would have been booked at least 6 months out, and artwork supplied at least a month out. There was no backing out of that, the marketing team would have created their entire plan over 6 months in advance, around the date that was given to them by ops/management which likely would have been Boxing Day. Then most would have gone off on staggered holidays from early Dec-late Jan as is common with most corporate jobs.
  8. Haze fluid is pretty expensive.... 🤷‍♂️

    And New York Pizza slices
  10. Firstly, I didn’t abuse you, and despite you deserving an abusive retort, I won’t, as hopefully a mod will simply ban you for being abusive for zero reason. Carrying on the way you did just discredits you further

    Sea World Carnivale 2019

    Yeah no food list on the website makes zero sense, was weighing up whether to get the 3 meals for $30 which is only available online, but you can only see what options you can’t choose (ribs, seafood platter and all the normal outlets). Pretty stupid.
  12. Swear someone said the same thing 2 weeks ago and it was absolute BS...

    'Big Brother House' Vandalised

    As Alex said, how long is a piece of string... Westfield was supposed to open 8 years ago.. the original concept had a new entry gate for DW at the end of said precinct, however it’s unlikely that is still part of the plans
