    Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi

    I found a Blue Sky concept for Warner Bros Abu Dhabi. Very interesting to see a different park than what was built. Have a look here: http://www.damrondesign.com/warner-bros.-abu-dhabi.html

    Tours of parks in Google Streetview

    Taronga Zoo has been on streetview for 5+ years, I was there when they rode the tricycle around the property.

    Wonderland Sydney 2.0

    I watched this news on 7 & 9 last week. They both mentioned that a site was being considered around Badgerys Creek (I'm surprised nobody here has mentioned it). With the government confirming Badgerys Creek as the new Western Sydney airport site, I'd imagine anything being built around it would have height restrictions on coasters, tower rides, hotels & fireworks etc.. This article: http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/newslocal/south-west/scouting-for-land-and-big-plans-for-sydneys-wonderland-theme-park-return/story-fngr8hxh-1227538637601 also confirms his intention to have dark rides.

    Wonderland Sydney 2.0

    If this is ever built it'll look more like an amusement park similar to Luna Park, it won't be anywhere near as big as Wonderland used to be. Since the original announcement for this Sydney has received Wet'n'Wild Sydney, and just last week plans for a new zoo to be built in western Sydney have been released.

    Gold Coast almost got Disneyland.

    Pushbutton - that was only a Legoland Discovery Center, not a full size Legoland park.

    Movieworld Expansion

    Since nobody has responded to my post on the Parkz facebook page, check this out http://www.facebook....kg-to0-3K7_9RBA (scroll down to page 17 for proposed area map) it shows in great detail that GCCC had approved this prior to planning of Green Lantern coaster.

    Why i believe a Disneyland in Australia wouldnt work

    As i have previously stated above, i found the following article most interesting: http://disneyandmore.blogspot.com/2009/11/...peter-pans.html It would be perfect if Disney were still intending to do something here (in Australia). People keep saying our population is too small for a Magic Kingdom style park if it were built here, but if something like Neverland was built instead it would attract many loyal Disney fans to flock here to check it out.

    Cairns $3b resort

    I don't know if anyone here has any prior knowledge of this proposed resort, but today it's the first i've read about it. I'm curious to know what others think. Follow this link to the article: http://www.cairns.com.au/article/2009/10/2...local-news.html

    WVTP Changes

    When i read about the offer yesterday, (i can't remember but) i think it said the discounted tickets have to be booked 4 weeks prior to the birthday.

    Why i believe a Disneyland in Australia wouldnt work

    I think a Disney park would work best if they kept it small and unique in design (not a Magic Kingdom clone).

    Einstein

    Info available on this site here: http://www.parkz.com.au/parks/AU/Gold_Coas...-Homestead.html Also do a search on Knott's Berry Farm - Haunted Shack it was pretty much the same thing.
  14. WVTP could buy some amazing coasters at dirt cheap prices!!
