    Gotta love old mate’s helmet being several sizes too small in the end of the safety briefing.

    The very definition of a roller-coaster is that at some point it relies on gravity as an acting force, so coasters that are powered for the entire journey aren't counted by most enthusiasts.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    Seems like a good fit for Blue Lagoon / Amphitheatre.

    It looks like a lot of hustle for Ardent's AGM this Friday. Perhaps finally we'll see it open soon.

    Is this Ekka ride dangerous?

    1) No low-hanging over-heads. 2) The rear head-rest is used by most manufacturers now to essentially catch riders should they not be following the guidelines and choose to stand. I get your point though, something something Dreamworld.

    I'd be totally alright if it was gone or moved, it cut off a pathway for literally no reason.

    Tower of Terror 2 possible closing

    My hope is that they learnt this with Wipeout and this is the plan moving forward for Tower of Terror and any other rides that are closing in the near future.

    Dreamworld Update - 3rd of August

    You know me too well. A Lazy River is a must for WhiteWater World's future, but not the over the top one with animals and other junk that Dreamworld were planning. Rather, the best thing for a lazy river is to keep it simple with well landscaped shaded spaces and BBQ's. Because if the aim of the game is to get season pass holders to make repeat visits (which it is) then combining really pleasant capacity sucking attractions with facilities that keep people in park for longer in an environment that guests desire visiting, then you've got a real basic recipe for success. Dreamworld seems to really be on the up and up. I'm not sad about the amphitheatre being crushed, John Longhurst remarked that it was his biggest mistake about the park and it's better gone at this point than left to rot. What I do hope is that when we start to hear announcements about new attractions and masterplans etc. etc. in the coming months/years is that everything's done with a sense of holistic consideration to the greater picture and not just out of necessity to deliver something as soon as possible because Village is doing XYZ in the same time period. Dreamworld doesn't need Trolls, Cars, Zombies and a Convention Centre inside a beach themed area, nor does it need more modern facades like Sky Voyager's succeeding what were beautiful Disney facsimile facades in a turn of the century themed area. Same goes for MotoCoaster in Rivertown, same went for an oil rig (Giant Drop) in Rocky Hollow, etc. etc. etc. etc. Everyone wants Longhurst's Dreamworld. The steam trains, the exciting attractions, the attention to detail, all done with an Australian spirit and passion.

    Dreamworld Update July

    You'll definitely be able to see it from the car park. If you see anything, be sure to snap a pic - would be a shame to see it go but it does open up a huge corridor for Dreamworld to use.

    Sorry, queue lines and projection mapping doesn't make a good park, and adding a Trumpian three-worder at the end still isn't enough to warrant a dismissal of the merit behind my post. Anyway, glad we're all agreed Tokyo DisneySea is the bees knees.
