To me, this seems great. I think they want this to be completely unrelated to Dreamworld other than the venue, which I think is an interesting move. By my understanding they also removed Park After Dark references from the DW website, which makes me think this is a sort of replacement all year round. I'd love to see how popular it is after the grand opening and the "hype" has died down a bit.
I think this move is a bit strange. A $2 coin seems oddly specific and I can't see why they have this. Anybody know a reason? Surely $2 doesn't pay for operational costs.
I agree. The announcement/launch does seem a bit rushed (maybe because they are selling Main Event?) and I think it's a bit strange launching it during winter.
Nevertheless I think it'll overall be a good new addition.
