  1. Ooh, that is dangerous. Running around with 'official logos' isn't good for your health, you know. And certainly not for your reputation. The fact that when I scroll over the picture it says 'Imageshack.us', you can tell that either you have made it yourself, say, in Paint, or you have uploaded the pic from a website. What would this website be, pray tell? And if, of course, you knew it was in fact from a website, you would be glad to tel us? After all, you want everyone to know you aren't lying, don't you? I for one am a little bit influenced towards the 'this is the truth' end of the scale
  2. It's is, in fact pretty amazing that Dreamworld only have one operating thrill roller coaster. The investment of a new coaster would be brilliant, but with the $20m blown this year on The Dreamworld Aqua Park, we aren't getting a new roller this year. I think Dreamworld will know the right time to build a new ride. They know how to satisfy.
  3. To my disgust, unfortuantely, Southport does in fact have a vacant lot to the south of the city...but there is no indication of any lease signs, or any indication of anything being built. And it would only fit a very, very small sized theme park into it. Kyle, what Gazza said was true. Macquarie already owns and manages two parks, Dreamworld & Adventure World. Surely you cant've mistaken that fact...
  4. Ah, Kyle makes a return. Brave statement there, buddy. You know, I think you're reputation could get better if this accusation of yours is in fact true. Then again, on the other hand, I don't know if a person like you should have been the person to announce this. Now, I have really never liked you, and I'm telling you now, I probably never will. But this is a very, very...not-Kyle like thing to say. But, I'm afraid, there are some problems with your announcement. Firstly, a theme park does not have a concrete-set name before it has even been approved. As far as I know, naming the park w
  5. Does anyone know when XTreme World finishes? Or has it already finished? I heard a rumour that it is open until March 7 but, well, let's just say the source wasn't very reliable.
  6. I know there have been previous posts about this, but the Wipeout, boy, it's definetely aging. And it's not just the blasting noise from her engines that shhow the obvious wrinkling, it's the rust, speed, rotations...whatever it had 10 years ago, it has either got little of or none of now. Firstly, and the most recognisable difference between then and now is the noise. God, it's got some noise with it now. The brakes kicking in when they need to is the worst part. Secondly, if you have a good look at the engines of the ride, it is very, very rusty. I have a friend who refuses to go on the Wi
  7. The Tower of Terror Is Getting Too Loud. I had the familiar experience of walking under the walkway under the TOT when the siren went off and the car came bursting out of the tunnel. It was the loudest sound I have ever heard. I noticed it was louder straight away when the ride first came out of the tunnel. It just kept getting louder and louder from there. It was going at a regular speed, so over doing the speed wasn't the cause. Then I thought it could be the engine starting to wear. Yeah, right. All the time I was thinking, the grinding noise of the car going up the Dreamworld Tower
  8. Hands up those who enjoyed Big Brother's 'Friday Night Live' games on Ten? Well, if you did, you're in luck because this year, Dreamworld is hosting a brand new show, aptly named The Friday Night Games. The show, produced by Southern Star Endemol, broadcast by Network Ten, and filmed at Dreamworld, will be the hottest new Friday night show this year. A spin-off from Big Brother 2005’s ‘Friday Night Live’ show, the 'Friday Night Games' will have you on the edge of your seats, cheering and roaring with laughter as you experience some good old fashioned family fun. Every Friday night at 7.30pm
  9. I guess the Big Brother time issue will have to wait for awhile. We may have to find out how timing is going to be later in the year. My guess is that, like any show in Australia that has been running for 6 years, it will remain in the same slot as it always has. We'll just wait and see.
  10. Channels 10, 9 & 7 have all recieved the rights to a new promotional ad for the Extreme H20 Zone. The ad will begin airing sometime around January 17. And Slick, honestly, how can a park, any park, NOT advertise a new ride? I mean, this attraction is going to be the climax of waterslides in Australia. The biggest (literally), fastest (literally) and most thrilling (li-well, we'll just have to figure that one out for ourselves) waterslides in the whole country and Wet 'n' Wild is gonna sit back and say "Ahh, the new rides. Hey, I've got an idea! Let's not tell anyone about them!" Think.
  11. Google It. The only answer I can give is Google It. I tested it and if you go to "http://images.google.com" and search "Wet 'n' Wild" you can get some pretty good pics there. Don't try to make the picture bigger, though, because most of them have low resolution. Also, if you want to get a particular ride, type in "Wet 'n' Wild / RIDE NAME". It worked for me.
  12. It would be an idea but I would stick to the tyre-based Rubarok, simply because it is just cheaper. Lots cheaper. The theming of The Claw cost Dreamworld $269,000. Now to cover a whole theme park with that stuff is a good idea but very expensive. Just stick to something easy and cheap.
  13. I know I'm kinda just saying stuff that I think, but I don't really think that ANY day is slower or faster. Any day you pick, you will be inundated with people, here, there...you will get annoyed at length and speed of queue lines any day. Except for the Claw. If I'm not mistaken, that is the fastest-moving thrill ride queue.
  14. I think it is a camera angle thing. I work with TV cameras etc and I can tell you that it does make a hell of a lot of difference if you put the camera to one angle or at a certain point around something. How do you think they make all those "really high" buildings in America look high? They put the camera at the right angle to make it look high. No different with the Tower of Terror. Let's ponder over why he said that? Because that's how fast it goes! When I came out of the Tower of Terror when I went on it the second time, it said our top speed had been 163.5km/h. That, as long as I ca
