  1. Interesting seeing rides are not available during their "Evening Eats", I don't blame them for doing it either tbh...
  2. Not sure whether this has been mentioned already, but the steel fence running along Steel Taipan (by the bus bays) seems to be getting a fresh paint job. The start (by the switch track) is decorated with snake-like scales, with the rest of the fence still unfinished.
  3. They'll continue using the website: https://shop.themeparks.com.au/ But I assume they finally have a "Movie World" collection given it's currently Sea World products up atm.
  4. Dreamworld has since revealed that it will be celebrating a significant New Zealand holiday at the park next weekend. And in all honesty, it may not be much but I'm genuinely keen on it. Keen to see plenty of Maori's there...
  5. Allegedly the front row is not used due to a design flaw with the manual harness release mechanisms (in the event of an evac, this issue would become very awkward for row 1 guests).
  6. Welp. If @Village Idiot is a team member, uhh- If not, then congrats you know lmao
  7. Greg would never have his staff refurbish a ride only to announce a retirement in the next two months.
  8. Nice little segment on the Mack Ride's website: https://mack-rides.com/2021/12/21/steel-taipan-and-tailwhip-are-ready-to-bite/
  9. Tbh, I don't feel as hyped about the new big dipper. Like yeah it's an Australian-first, but it looks a little lacklustre with only two major elements to make up for it. Don't get me wrong, second launch does look killer. I don't feel an urge to ride this tbh, but I'm down to give it a go when I visit Sydney - if ever. Gotta agree with @themagician here. It isn't anywhere near the levels of Rivals or Taipan. Thinking it is may be a teeny bit of a stretch...
  10. Could've just said it like that the first time 🎢 Not surprised to see Doomsday is still down for maintenance, but I'm keen to try the new boats on WWF soon. Will be most looking forward to how much quieter the lift hill will be...
  11. These decorations were taken down after the final night of White Christmas concluded. After finishing a shift at 10pm, we saw a crane transfer the large White Christmas sign that hung from the top of the undercover thingo down main street towards the back of the park. Meanwhile multiple staff were busy pulling down loose-hanging decorations.
  12. What are you saying here? It was or wasn't Superman?
  13. Something we'll never quite get to the bottom of...
  14. Movieworld lowkey getting a bit stingy on their rides ig, but what more can they do if the apparent issue is to be blamed on supply chain issues? Through my eyes, things are starting to feel a bit rushed as well (in terms of rides and attractions). Doomsday never had ALL seats active when the ride reopened after a lengthy downtime. After who knows how many months, Rivals' second train STILL doesn't have all seats active - let alone any backwards seats. Green Lantern - don't even 💀 Superman seems to be the only strong thrill attraction going. All seats active on one train with consistent dispatches between cycles. Is anyone able to confirm whether or not the second train for Superman has been brought out yet? On my last visit as a guest on Tuesday, the second train was seen with open harnesses from Batwing within its maintenance area.
  15. My first time seeing a more "zoomed-out" image of the Leviathan rendering, but I do hope we see the scales, rocks, and other thematic elements present, where seen towards the right-side of the image:
  16. Not too sure atm, but there are seats out here and there. The staff doing sorting (from what I saw yesterday) had to hold a clipboard saying which train was what, with which seats were open and which ones weren't. All I do know is the amount of seats that are out of action (not including backwards seats) are not enough to equate to one full train. I'd say around half a train or less.
  17. Don't be too happy tho, not all seats are operational on the second train either. All backwards seats are out of action at the moment too.
  18. In other news, the second train to Rivals has made a return yesterday. Don't know how long ago its been active for...
  19. Still disappointed that we don't see a reopening date for Fully 6 slides 2 and 3.
  20. If you are referring to the small green lights within the seat harness mechanism case thingo (whatever it is), I've been told it serves as a device to send the main computer confirmation that the seatbelt has indeed been locked and checked by the ride attendants (given some people like to do their belt before the attendant gets there). The light remains off until the belt is inserted into the buckle - from there, the light flashes. Then the attendants (using their red whistle-looking device) scan the area below the light. Doing so allows the light to stop flashing and therefore verifying the belt has been locked and checked (as stated above).
  21. Both Tailwhip seats down at the moment. Expected to be operational again before Grand Opening day... Disregard, did not see the other forum topic
  22. Have a massive following with strong interests for the amusement industry? Or be highly regarded as an important figure to instill positive influences for any future guests/interested parties? Maybe be a celeb or any external entity that works closely with the park?
  23. What's written in the emails is mentions of passholders receiving the exclusive opportunity to ride before open day on multiple days. So given Steel Taipan might not be opening again till Wednesday, perhaps it was a corporate decision or there's bugs that need rectifying and ironing out before it officially opens. I mean, Tailwhip had a few issues with returning to the home position after solo rides spun like crazy and would delay operations while they reset the train.
