  1. Is that the order? I’m familiar with touring plans for Disney Parks but haven’t been to the Gold Coast Parks in the summer since the 90s.
  2. Thank you! We’ll arrive early and see how we go.
  3. I know I’m crazy, but I’m going to brave WBMW this coming Saturday, and I’m thinking Fast Track might be the way to do it. It’s a shambles though: the MW website says it doesn’t include Rivals, and makes no mention of Green Lantern. The ticketing site says it does include Rivals, and doesn’t mention GL either. The sign posted here earlier, includes both GL and Rivals, so I’m assuming that’s the most correct? I was only at the park in July, so for me, the most important thing is Rivals, and GL as it was closed for refurb on my last visit. What do waits look like on this type of day? Would it be worth considering Fast Track?
  4. I just got back from my first trip to Japan, and unfortunately due to the rain did not get to experience the Backdrop variant of Hollywood Dream, but at least I can confirm it’s still operating as such. I think how it’s achieved is actually quite clever, being that they have 3? trains running at a time, 2 forwards and one backwards, and two queues. They just load whichever queue for the train that is coming in next.
  5. I can't help but feel Carnivale has been inspired by Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando, in itself obviously inspired by Mardi Gras in New Orleans. For me, the highlight of Universal's event was the fantastic evening parade, with the performers throwing beads into the crowds. Some of the floats also had guests chosen earlier in the day throwing the beads as well. Hopefully, Movie World can invoke the same kind of atmosphere.
  6. I was on exchange in the USA for all of 2013, so have only recently started taking notice of Wet 'n' Wild Sydney, and can't help but notice the abundance of features similar to MyMagic+ at Walt Disney World in Orlando, and have to wonder just how close they get to infringing on patents owned by Disney. Firstly, MyBand is obviously "inspired" by the MagicBand at Walt Disney World, for park admission and making purchases using RFID technology. I'm very familiar with the MagicBand at Walt Disney World, and it certainly is a convenient method particularly for making purchases. Fast Pass? "Inspired" by... Disney's FASTPASS System. They even used the same name! From what it sounds, as it stands at Wet 'n' Wild Sydney, it's very unfair unlike Disney's system, so I hope they can sort that out, and I hope they change the name. I can't imagine Disney would be super thrilled about their name being used in a (somewhat) competitor park, particularly with a system that requires additional payment. MemoryMaker of MyMagic+ makes an appearance as MyMemories, to gain photographs taken during your day at the park. I think the thing I find probably most bothering is that Wet 'n' Wild are even combining the words and using camel case exactly like Disney are doing. Surely it won't be too long until they're hearing something from Disney, wouldn't you think?
  7. I was at Sea World today, went to see Spongebob 3D. As has been said, the 3D was woeful. Out of interest, I put the glasses on upside down and it was perfect 3D. I told the attendant on my way out of the theatre and she was going to get the AV techs to have a look into it.
  8. Does anybody have any tips on using the Q4U to get the most out of it? I'm going to DW on Sunday 09/09/12 and am considering hiring one for the day, are there any particular rides where it's more beneficial to use it than others? Is it worth it?
  9. Ahhhh thankenyou. I shouldve thought to look on OzB.
  10. This seems like a pretty good deal for people that are into Big Brother going to Dreamworld even just once before November. It's $99.99 and allows unlimited access to both DW and WWW until November 30th, plus discounts of up to 50% on Big Brother Live show tickets, exclusive evictee meet and greets, free Big Brother experience tour, 10% off full priced merchandise, Early Entry to Dreamworld on weekends, and discounts for purchasing 1 day tickets for other people. I am going to the GC the second week of September, and am planning on going to DW on the Sunday and staying through for the eviction, so I bought one of these passes for myself and my friend as it would cost $80 each for a 1 day DW ticket anyway, and the 50% saving on the Live Eviction tickets and free Big Brother tour will pretty much pay for the difference, as well as allow us to go into WWW and have a look around if the feeling comes over us. Has anybody on here purchased one of these? Or does anybody know answers to these two questions: What time is the early entry for passholders? How do I purchase the discounted tickets? It says through Ticketek on the website. Ticketek asks for a password, which I don't have until I actually turn my paper passes into real passes, which won't be until the day I want to go to the eviction. Does anybody have this password and could maybe PM it to me so I can buy tickets in advance? TL;DR What time is passholder early entry to DW on weekends? What is the password for discount Big Brother tickets on Ticketek? Thanks y'all.
  11. Just hoping I could get some advice from you knowledgable people. I'm going to the Gold Coast (for the first time since 2006) the weekend of September 8/9. Now, I know you're not all prophets, but, based on previous ride openings, what do you think the chances are of this new attraction being open/soft open when I'm there? Do they have rides on soft opening during weekends or only during the week? Thanks peeps!
  12. Yeah, the images on the tower look REALLY fake. The corners that extend outwards on the left and right sides obviously don't stick out in the middle, it's just a straight line.
  13. I meant as an overall ride, but yeah, pretty easily misunderstood sentence. My bad. I could've just written "66km/h is soooooooooo slow, I can drive faster, only 3.5Gs, this ride is gonna be awful" but thought I'd try positivity for a change
  14. From an email just now... 66km/h should be fun on the tight curves and bends!
