  1. This was a truly brilliant article. I haven't got much more to add than that.
  2. Slick - you truly lived up to your name with those incredible photos and video.
  3. I'm glad they have announced that it will definitely operate at night during Fright Nights. That'll be a huge drawcard.
  4. "Some big announcements coming soon". Sounds promising!
  5. ^ Holy crap. First pic of the almost completed hill and drop that gives me a real sense of the scale of this thing. Amazing.

    ^ I couldn't decide between the crying and fountain emoticons to express how bad that joke was.
  7. I tend to agree. VRTP would be laughing at the idea that a one-off injection of $25 million could be considered a large investment over the medium to longer term, and also the idea that you have to sell something off to find the cash. DW has definitely had a long period of under investment with Ardent at the helm, as we have long recognised on these forums, and I appreciate that these guys have brought attention to that; but they will need more than $25 million to even compete with Rivals alone. And as the poster above mentioned, what about the following years?

    They're already doing more marketing for their $3 million dollar slide than Movie World is doing for their $40m coaster. Go them

    My thoughts exactly, Richard. I have always been extremely underwhelmed by the Ardent board. I remember watching the value of my shareholding plummet while the director's voted to increase their salaries. Maybe I would have been more sympathetic if I felt they were willing to truly invest in Dreamworld and do the right thing by the Gold Coast. But, that wasn't the case.
  10. I don't mind people posting the full text of articles here! It saves us from giving clicks to Rupert Murdoch's evil News Corpse
  11. That hill is MASSIVE! I love the pic showing guests in the Green Lantern queue with the Rivals track in the background and GL track in the foreground. We've got a real theme park now!

    I didn't know anything about them wanting to sell the park. Have a read of some the articles in the 'media' section - they mention that they want to focus on Dreamworld and other Australian assets, they recognise the importance of the park, and condemn the current directors for failing to re-invest in the park.

    Check out - http://fixardent.com.au/ I'm sure most of us would agree with the sentiment expressed by these guys, and I'm hoping they are able to take control of the company. In my opinion, Ardent has been terribly managed for many years now, and the current board should be removed. I speak from personal experience after losing a significant amount of wealth from having once invested in the company's shares. But more than anything, I want to see Dreamworld succeed, and it sounds like these guys do too, and have an idea of what it will take to make that happen.

    Love seeing these parks thrive. Only issue I can see is that two Victorian parks will have a Tornado Wave if this goes ahead. Maybe it's not too late for Adventure Park to go with a different slide type.
  15. Down comes Sea World Water Park

    Extreme Swings are really ugly, and a version at Cedar Point apparently had lots of mechanical issues and was involved in an incident in 2014 where one of the cables snapped and injured two riders. I think SW should steer clear.
