  1. Think of the cred this roof will buy Movieworld with the local authorities. I bet that the very thing it will block will be captured for use within the park - if they have not designed this into it they are crazy.
  2. Ah yes, what a pain in the rear end the old lady was. Every other day during the dismantle of the park she would be there. We would see her car up at security and all of us would scatter like mice. She wanted everything it all started with ALL the Billabong Grove shelters and quickly spread across the park. Nice old thing though just annoying. Towards the end she bought in frozen roast legs for a few of us (there was only myself and two or three others left at this stage) I knew of where she took it all as Alex said up at North Richmond and a few years ago I ventured up there drove down her drive a bit, saw some of the old park but then got out of there for fear of being stuck there the rest of the day talking to her. The green tubular steel is from the roof/shadecloth structure from the freshwater croc area in the WLP. That kangaroo coming out of the bin is pretty trick!
  3. Interesting to note the guy that heads AMF for Macqaurie Leisure was responsible for managing the construction of WWW. Looks like he has a project to run there again.
  4. Funny how any link to youtube leads you to spend 15 minutes sidetracked looking at other vids!
  5. Are you talking about the inter park communications radio or the music you hear when you walk around the park? Either way you do not have much chance - the comms radios would operate on a fixed frequency that Dreamworld have the licence to operate on and as said by Mattcrombie the park music would run from a CD.
  6. Do you know what composite the alloy is? Just wondering as it must bean interesting make up.
  7. In all the years I worked there I never once went to a breakdown on the Goldrush ride, therefore that deserves to be my favourite.
  8. That would really make Anthony Mundine happy!
  9. Yeah I know - when I was creating the post I was looking for the way to make it hyperlink and could not find it so I posted and it came up automatically as a hyperlink.
  10. http://uk.youtube.com/user/WoogityBoogity20 All 5 parts of this episode - sorry I dont know how to hyperlink on here.
  11. Discovery channel now - repeated at 3:30am tomorrow. Goes through how new coasters are built etc etc.
  12. I wholly agree with what Richard has said regarding Sea World, I think it is the better of the main 3 parks on the Gold Coast. Last year I was lucky enought to be granted free entry to all parks on the Gold Coast (Sea, Movie, Dream, WnW, PC) and after going to Sea World the very first day we went to Dreamworld then to Movie World and were meant to do PC and WnW but because we enjoyed Sea World so much we forfeited those to go back which was nice of them to allow us to change prior arrangements. We would be representative of the young family demographic. I think Sea World is a park not to be missed because of it's fantastic variety of animal exibits and shows with more than decent rides to mix it up a little. The location, layout and lack of imposing facades/seemingly confined spaces are second to neither of the other two parks.
  13. In that case who here would welcome Disney on the Gold Coast?
  14. From Wonderland the Demon went on a ship from Sydney to New Orleans then trucked up to Birmingham AL and sat in the carpark and was repainted there.
  15. Like I said they will be referred to as Cable by everyone - even Wiki and at other sources but within the industry they are Ropes. My post was not for the sole purpose of satisfying one person and I never expected that everyone would find this interesting but I posted knowing the majority of this community would be.No more reports from you, well they didn't interest me anyway but I wouldn't have gone out of my way to post that.
  16. Just fyi and a little interestring fact. The correct term for those linear steel things that launch the train is "ropes". Wires and Cables refer to electrical units. But many people still call them Cables amongst other things and will continue to do so. Just an interesting note though.
  17. Look in the local papers, probably better to direct contact HR dept of the parks and ask.
  18. The dodgems are operational and have been for 2 days, just was told on the phone by COO of Movie World.
  19. Just an apprenticeship as a Fitter or Electrician will do it. The Gold Coast parks even offer apprenticeships I think.
  20. So this happened before the Korean incident? How did nobody eg: Sea World management, notice damage to the gondola's? Surely maintenance would have reported this incident, if not someone is in deep.
  21. The main beam under the train which the tyres will contact with could be coated in the grip epoxy stuff although it takes a toll on the tyres and needs reapplication every now and then. That works well when wet. Or they could install kicker wheels around the circuit which automatically raise up only when the train hasn't reached a pre-determined speed.
  22. x how much per ride? At $5, money back first year less overheads like wages, site rent, registration and maintenance.
