  1. I think that whole Wonderland video discussion is just total insanity. It's a DEAD AND BURRIED closed park. Sure some people have some lovely memories, but I can't see why there is infighting over some pics and videos of something that is well and truely in the past. I don't get the whole 'Wonderland circle' it's a bit nuts. Think people should just be happy others are talking about/interested in it.
  2. Whist I'm a massive copyright supporter and don't advocate the stealing of any professional works. I often do seem to struggle with the theme park enthusiast world of but hurt when non professional photos are re used for non monetary purposes...
  3. Wow there's a roller coaster in amongst all that shit somewhere.

    Well if it's a mechanical characteristic of the ride system it's going to always be there isn't it.
  5. No way unlimited. $19 is fine by me
  6. Magic Mountain is $25 for X2... just saying and that's US dollars

    Well any sound would be hidden by the subs

    Look I'm not saying there isn't some sort of sudder from the kicker wheels but I don't think there's any sort of track shaker... Probably to do with the coupling of the subs to the floor and transferring up into the track rather than firing low frequency waves at you.

    Given those large pipes have been there since around the time Shark Bay was built it would be funny if the entire structure they are building is solely to hide something they can't remove

    Are you all talking about the castle que being dark? Reason for that is simple. Combination of being cheap and no one consulting on design. The que originally had 300w tungsten halogen lamps pointed at each window panel. The bounce of these produced ample ambient light for the space. These constantly required replacement so the minute the worlds cheapest LED replacement was available they 'started' to get changed out. Unfortunately the LEDs chosen were/are cheap and nasty, and set to an 'amber' they provide little bounce and thus you have the resulting dark que area. There are still a couple of the old lamps left because not ALL were replaced #budget. There's even a couple of EXTREMELY AWFUL home made modified lights up there that light a couple panels in a cool white, just gross. The whole space is one of my most hated places in the park lighting wise and it drives me nuts every time I see it. Badly needs a refit by a theatrical lighting designer... again something only Disney and Universal do, which is why their stuff looks 100x better than spaces lit by electricians.

    Theres a bunch of subs next to the track... you can see them. Combined with the low jog speed of the train creates a pretty convincing effect.

    Yeah two things... I'm pretty sure the company I work for doesn't have any amusement rides, in the dark or otherwise so... burn fail! second this emerging trend of people trying to out other members personal lives on these forums is not cool and won't be tolerated so it can stop now. Cause otherwise I'm just going to start banning people.

    First rule of que design, if people are bored they will damage shit... Good parks don't let them be bored Ok parks make it so they can't damage stuff The rest do neither... Great parks are of course all run by Disney and do both
  15. Wow by the ratings that's a pretty poor review... hopefully they get better.
