    I always thought for every ice cream parlour ever its like: -cup or wafer cone is standard, -waffle cone is extra -dipped fancy cone is a bit more on top of that. That said I always get cup, you don't want the intensity of nice ice cream weakened by a bland bit of waffle cone.

    Dirty Harry Bar toilets are the MW equivalent.

    Tailspin difficult to spin?

    I wonder if this was a manufacturer driven change on certain models, because a few of them, like the one at Tripsdrill and the one at Legoland Japan were stupidly difficult to get spinning and stay spinning.

    Outback Splash 2020/21 expansion

    It's Gas. Spin around and have a look at the signs either side of the road. https://www.google.com/maps/@-31.6543134,115.9567202,3a,15y,1.66h,81.52t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sRumQf4oDYS7HIPS_DvfBmA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 The saucers/saws on these slides literally do nothing other than look interesting. They're about as useful as the top half of a Tornado. That said, they don't use much additional fibreglass according to a Proslide rep I've spoken to, since all you are doing is "unrolling" the top of what would otherwise be an enclosed slide.

    A bootleg Kamikaze rather. That slide also has Polins knock off of the Proslide flying saucer, though theirs is a saw shape. See the plans in the pdf below. DA360-20-Plans.pdf I dont understand why they dont have the space for the expansion slides to one side so you can sort the raft sliders and the mat sliders by the two staircases, like this:

    Possibly due to the fact it's a weekday. I'm confused....Hasn't Giant Drop had a sign since it opened in 1998? This pic is from TPRs visit 9 years ago: https://www.themeparkreview.com/parks/photo.php?pageid=356&linkid=10144&pageno=2

    Magic Mountain Glenelg

    What I’m saying is that in terms of the types of attractions on offer, things are pretty much the same between the new and the old one (Having visited both) Obviously the new one has new ride equipment (apart from the old carousel) and the slides have a different layout. The old Magic Mountain was never a “theme park”, it had: 4x Slides (All body slides) Sky Cycle Carousel Bumper Boats Arcade Games Mini Golf The Beachouse has 3x Slides (1 raft, 1 body side, 1 turbo tunnel) Mini Train Bumper Cars Bumper Boats Arcade Games Mini Golf Ferris Wheel Indoor Playground

    Doesn't it basically have the same attraction lineup as the old Magic Mountain, with the one difference being it has dodgem cars and the ferris wheel in lieu of the sky cycles?

    This is my favourite part: Is this a giant lifeguard chair?

    Sort of like this https://www.parkz.com.au/photo/20465-Adventure_Pier/gallery/sort/newest/location/park-291/offset/43 But it needs more words stencilled on it, like "Live, Laugh, Love"

    Ok a show of hands, who even knew DW had these things before DW announced they were closed.

    Magic Mountain Glenelg

    From outside it looks like the slides are the coolest thing ever weaving in and out of the rockwork, but inside it was unthemed and all the slides were open air so it was basically just like a giant warehouse. Did look impressive though!
  13. Yeah, it's been at the Kybong travel stop for years, which itself has now been bypassed. https://www.google.com/maps/@-26.3068695,152.7214337,3a,40.7y,297.05h,90.7t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s4VM_8s5q9cinCT-iAV80qA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 I stopped off to have a look when I was passing through one evening, still open but shadow of its former self with a massive food court that has been cleared of chairs and multiple areas closed off, so it just feels desolate.
