    Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster refurb in Nov/Dec 2017

    Interesting that they’ve engaged a supplier who has gone and violated their contractor induction policy right from the get go... Hardly feel that’s a back of house photo approved by VRTP marketing dept

    Mt Druitt water works?

    Whats that from? I'd be keen for any images anyone has of the park. Sadly anything pre mid 90s is so hard to find of anywhere. I think the park may have also gone a little bit up from the block in question too as I think the main entrance sat about mid way of 'the beach'.

    Mt Druitt water works?

    This’d be it then

    Mt Druitt water works?

    Pretty sure it was in this area. Which would line up with reports of it being near the footbridge on the north side (Wikipedia) and also 500m from the station (the old TV ads). I have a rough memory of it being in a culdersack so Stout Rd might be it

    Movie World "fight shows" are gone

    They also removed the “fight captain” role from the department so doesn’t sound like any plans to bring those sorts of shows back.

    Sea World Jelly Fish 2017 Attractiion

    I think when you say “not the best” in reference to the exterior the actual meaning is ‘bloody awful!’ Like come on, just boarding up and flag painting existing structures for what is meant to be a permanent attraction is not really acceptable.

    Wet 'n' Wild Gold Coast - August 2018

    Wet n Wild Gold Coast seems to have suffered from a real lack of love in recent years. Probably due to its poor performing sister down in Sydney. It will be interesting now that Sydney is gone, and there’s been a big shakeup in management like the departure of Greg, to see if this parks starts getting some of the focus back on it.
  8. There’s no problem about bottomless soft drinks. Part of being a responsible parent is being able to moderate the crap your kids invest against the exercise they have. And learning to actually use that so forbidden of words: “NO”

    West Coast of USA

    With the way the dollar is tanking $25k is probably not all that unrealistic a figure presently.

    Dreamworld General Updates 2018

    Don’t care how many fences etc there are, the fact it’s possible for you as a guess to see any of that Shit around the place is a bloody disgrace.

    Sea World Jelly Fish 2017 Attractiion

    Really I think it’s about saving face. By having the partnership and really pushing it helps to prevent any cries of “Sea World are exploiting Jelly Fish in disco tubes”. And if it achieves that then great. Anything to shut up the idiots. And I don’t mind having an educational part upstairs. I kind of feel Clark was right in that PCL interview in bringing all the BOH good the park does to the front. That’s only going to help curb the Sea World is evil talk.

    Traveling fairs!

    So given on a Park ride every bolt is replaced for new every time it is removed/inserted and critical pins NDTd every time they are removed... How much of a farce are these safety checks? Like these rides are literally smacked together every other week. Call it a big Nope for me getting on one.
  13. That shed is BEGGING for a Sally Ride. Said it before. Voyage to Iron Reef would actually perfectly fit here (and yes I know that's not Sally).
  14. Disney has the best loose articles policy in the world... NONE. You can take anything and everything on every ride with you. You will be shocked at what Disney does in terms of ride capacity and operations compared to EVERY (yes including Universal just up the road) other theme park in the world. Simply watching the dispatch operations at Space Mountain is an attraction in itself.
