  1. I believe it's been mostly fixed now since the major refurb. But I just wonder why some of those issues like faulty animatronics and blown speakers couldn't have been fixed by MW's in-house maintenance team. The ride should surely be able to be kept at a certain standard, and not just have it deteriorate until the original manufacturers have to be brought in again many years later
  2. Definitely feel like there's way too much flat comic book panel theming happening in that part of the park, way, way too much. Especially when it's supposed to be a movie park. But I can understand a very limited budget for theming for the Flash as I'm assuming they have planned for a limited life expectancy, considering the ride's age and previous issues. Wouldn't want to over capitalise
  3. You certainly can't fault Greg's vision. A well themed family coaster is something we pretty much all agreed would be ideal for DW. And making it a semi dark ride is the icing on the cake. So glad he is placing such a big emphasis on theming and practical effects
  4. VRTP would have to be pretty pissed that two newer rides are performing so badly. For a park with an already fairly small inventory, that's gotta really hurt. They would have planned to get many many more years out of them
  5. I was really disappointed with how Navi River Journey turned out. The artists impressions when it was being built looked great, but as soon as I saw the small size of the show building under construction, I knew it was going to be underwhelming. Could have become another classic Disney dark boat ride, but it's quite far from that
  6. When you look at Dreamworld currently, it really feels like a mid tier park at best. More regional than mainstream. Reminds me of some of the smaller parks in the UK. Whereas previously it was considered a major theme park with blockbuster attractions. It was a park that pretty much everyone visited when they went to the Coast. I think some of the suggestions above would help it get back to this status, or at least closer. I can see attendance getting back up to previous levels in this case, and so far there has been some very decent investment, but I just wonder if the current owners will have the financial capacity and/or willingness to take it there?
  7. So much better. Ardent was such a dumb name. Not that it really matters, none of this is public facing stuff
  8. A Screamin' Swing would be perfect for where Vortex currently is though, swinging over the water on both sides
  9. While the focus in Wicked is on the witches, pretty much all of those things you mention above are actually in the musical. Example, Fiero becomes the Scarecrow, so you definitely can't say he's not in it!
  10. Apparently the contract has gone to the same guy who did Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster Next Generation. Kidding.
  11. Dear god, the copy on that page is so badly written and below their usual standard. They also used the term 'precinct' instead of land, sadly following VRTP's lead
  12. I always wondered why they built such a seemingly expensive permanent shelter for that attraction. But I'm assuming the new bumper cars would be too big to fit under it?
  13. Oh I didn't realise the map path colours matched the actual path colours - figured it was done for the map only to delineate the themed areas
  14. Wonder why the blue path to signify the Ocean Parade doesn't continue through to Serpent Slayer? Maybe because it would make the kids area look too small on the map?
  15. Apologies, sometimes I forget there is life beyond Parkz (showing my age). Thanks for the photo
