    Hot Wheels Sidewinder Refurbishment

    It's a 25 year old coaster, so we shouldn't be surprised if that's the case. I know everyone was excited about the repaint for some reason but it was literally just lipstick on a very painful pig.

    I'd look forward to riding if it didn't break my neck on literally every poor transition!

    Ardent Leisure FY 20 results

    Is the permanent reduction of 2 rides in addition to the many many rides that have been removed recently? Makes sense not to duplicate, but their current ride line up is lacking on so many levels, made far worse by recent removals.
  5. Love those coaster options. We all know Lindsay Fox has a lot of money, so he could easily afford to make an investment into the park such as this, if he wanted to. Remember all those plans he told the media he had to restore the park to its former glory when he bought the place? Interesting, isn't it.

    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    Perhaps, but few theme parks are getting the same massive level of investment as Energylandia. Apparently their government contributes to it. A fairer comparison would be to compare SW to parks with similar attendance levels, and without massive financial backing.

    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    I wonder if final judgement of the entire precinct should be reserved until it's actually completed? What we're seeing is stage one. From all accounts, the majority of the theming was going to be applied to Leviathan and surrounds
  8. I wonder if it has something to do with the challenges of cleaning the ride for COVID purposes?

    Coronavirus and theme parks

    Yeah this beaches thing seems to be a major issue. Why are people so addicted to the beach? It's so weird. Talk about non-essential.

    Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway

    It's inspiring. One of the most impressive dark rides I've ever seen. Amazing work Disney
  11. This is what I've wondered all along -- why on earth was there not a basic block system installed with the same sensors you see on almost every water ride in the world. The conveyor would have just stopped moving once the stuck raft didn't pass the sensor in time. Surprisingly, this doesn't seem to have come up in any of the coroner's deliberations during the case? I know the water level sensor was mentioned. I guess it's more or less covered under the comments around lack of ride automation / engineering controls?

    Rocky Hollow Log Ride officially closed

    Totally, as proven by the new Polin waterslides that have just opened at the caravan park next door. As good as, if not better (or at least a bit more interesting) than Fully 6

    Rocky Hollow Log Ride officially closed

    It's all talk and little action at this stage. How many times can you talk about removing a ride to replace it with new attractions with the latest technology, without actually taking that action, before it just looks like spin? Most of us know it's spin, and judging by comments on DW's social media, the GP is starting to realise that too

    Gold Coast Parks in January

    ^ Agreed. Mondays are often busier than Sundays. Consistently one of the busiest days of the week, because as Joz said everyone has the same idea that it will be quiet. It's a phenomenon.

    Do you know why the steam was decommissioned?
