  1. Visited USS on Thursday! Had a great time. I think the park is awesome! It's still not completely finished but from what I tell and experienced it's a must see holiday destination. Unfortunately, the main attraction I wanted to go on (Battlestar Galactica) was closed indefinitely because of a technical glitch in their morning test routines. Thankfully I have myself a yearly pass and the park is literally 25 mins from my house, so I can go anytime! There isn't a single thing I can fault about the park. It cleverly combines the best features from USO/IOA, USH and USJ. Once it's complete with
  2. I'm visiting the park this Thursday! Will report back and tell you what I think of it all.
  3. Yes, it opened on the 14th WITHOUT any of the rides. The gates were opened to the entire complex for people to walk around for a nominal fee. The rides in the park were just 'testing' (I guess) so that people could see them in action. The official opening date isn't until early March I believe, however I do not have a definite date. News here in Singapore is big about it! The tickets released for the soft openings over the CNY long weekend sold out in a matter of minutes.
  4. Not sure if you guys have seen this yet or not. Farrari World Same 'complex' is also going to be where a new Warner Bros. Theme Park will be built.
  5. I went to Sea World today and went on the Jet Rescue and thought it was awesome. Simple but effective themeing, great speed and pace, simple but effective station. IMO the station (themeing) is enough. It's exactly how I would picture a 'Marine Research Launch Station' to be like... the white sails, the blue colours and the simple flooring. I think it works great. Overall a TON better then MDMC. The second launch on the Jet Resuce is (obviously) my favorite bit. Once you hit that launch and then out into the first turn after it's got some great forces on it. I took some video footage and so
  6. Is the new show going to be similar to the show Lights, Motor, Action! stunt show at Disney MGM Studios. I know this is a big stab in the dark, but the two black car V's the red car is awfully similar to the same 'storyline' used at the MGM show. If it is... GREAT! The MGM show is fantastic. Even if the Movie World version doesn't feature the Jet Ski etc action, the driving segments of the show are unreal!
  7. No they won't be removing conventional queues. Q-Bots work in a way where they save your place in line virtually... so it would be the same waiting time as if that person was waiting one space a head of you. And 15 mins? I know that a lot of Dreamworld rides in busy season get quite extensive queue times, so the Q-Bot system will be good for people who want to make the most out of their day. I would be guessing they will only be placing the system on the major rides of the park. Major theme parks in the USA (including Six Flags Magic Mountain, who has/is recently going to put the system in) l
  8. Wasn't it the station and queue area for the 'back lot' tram tour they used to run? And then it was an entrance to get to the movie magic show... or was that part of the 'back lot' tour?
  9. I live in Singapore at the moment and frequent Sentosa to get photos of the construction. There is a collection of photos that I've taken on Theme Park News Direct, (www.themeparknewsdirect.com) if any of you guys want to check it out. Not sure if I can post that link on here, but anyway. It's looking good! Can't wait till it opens, I'll still be living here when it does so I'm pumped!
  10. With any luck, I will be living in Singapore for 3 years to study so if it opens while I'm there... I'll be going! So, I'm excited! The Spiderman ride rocks, so does Mummy... Yee-ha!
  11. Umm, I don't think I've ever been during the holidays... But at a guess, I would say the lines would be not HUGE, but decent enough for a wait. But then again most of the rides a fairly high capacity. Obviously you would be waiting for the Wild Mouse because it's the only coaster... However, I am not 100% sure. Has anyone been to Luna Park during the holidays?
  12. I love Luna Park because it's such a relaxed environment. If I were you I would spend the best part of the day there, walk around, catch some rides (Although, they are just Carni rides) and just have a chill day with some action on the rides. Catch a ferry across from Circular Quay (if that's where your coming from) It's a great place just to hang out and have some fun. But that's just IMO. T
  13. I wore my sunnies on El Toro and Nitro with no strap and no questions asked, not even by secuirty and the check points along the queue lines.
  14. Yeah it is!! Puts Superman to SHAME! Even though Superman is still a great ride. I would love an Aussie park to put in something as fast as Kingda Ka.
  15. Well, I'm back in Sydney from the rest of my trip including 6 night in New York and had the chance to visit Six Flags Great Adventure! Let's start with the Dark Night Coaster, is bad. The coaster itself is just a variation of the SDSC without the intro section. As soon as you leave the station you are out up the lift hill and into the first turns. The coaster itself is themed with corrugated iron tunnels and spray paint with black lights, some mannequins dressed as characters from the movies and some buildings with lights. That pretty much sums it up, not worth the hour and a half wait. The
