    Movie World updates 2018

    This part is now no longer fenced off and has got a handicap ramp. If anyone is intrested
  2. With this being discussed about in most topics and construction starting soon it might be time to for its own topic. We all know TopGolf is going to take up a lot of land but where will this baby go. From what information we have out there, I believe that TopGolf Australia will be based on the one located in Las Vegas. To get this topic going I have scaled the images together using AutoCAD and tried to position it into likely locations. This is the location I think some people think it will go. Only thought I have on this one is why fence the swamp if you're going to need to pull it down again. This options makes some sense to me but is does mean the number 1 filming tank needs to relocated and it’s not your everyday backyard pool. On the flip side, removing the filming tank could open up the whole area up to MW. Overflow car park. This could be why MW is planning a new car park. I would think MW would want the new car park finished first before any constructed happened in this area. MW saying construction to start this year might be referring to constructing the car park in readiness to resume the current overflow car park. Which leaves current area behind AOS. We know a new show is coming and maybe MW have new plans for the animals. In this location I can still see 6 stables left for MW to use. Maybe AOS new show will only need half the amount of animals in it. @AlexB can I have an image of the new sound stage. This could all be undone by its location.
  3. Does anyone know if Movieworld still do the unlimited dining option for Rick's Café?

    VRTP On Google Street View

    After saying "the Gold Coast theme parks should take note of" Jamberoo's online park map upgrade, it seems it was the other way around but just for one aspect of it - the virtual tour. VRTP since September 2017 have allowed Google to add Street View of their parks. However, integration of this into their online park maps hasn't happened...yet (nor a live chat feature to their websites ). A list of links to access all the main attractions are below, which can be convenient for future reference. Note: If you can't move in a certain direction, refer to Google's map as they do not have Street View everywhere. However, the map's detailed routes can be conflicting with where you actually can go in Street View. Paradise Country Production Drive Parking Farmstay* Entrance Former Warner Brothers. Movie World Studio Tour Trams Homestead Clancy's Opal Mine Lorikeets Dingoes** Wildlife Photo Centre/Walk Koalas Animal Nursery & Walkthrough Stockman & Sheep Dog Arena*** Billy Tea Campfire, Stockhorse Arena & Wagon Rides**** Gold & Gemstone Panning Shearing Shed Farmhouse Restaurant *This is the entrance to Farmstay. Follow the road/signs to reach the actual Farmstay reception/accommodation. If you turn right at the 1st intersection of sealed road (which you can't in Google Street View), it takes you to the Native American Camp scene in Wild West Falls, which is around 100 metres away. **The Dingoes exhibit can be seen in the distance behind some trees. ***This view is from the road between the entrance & the Homestead. The entrance to the Stockman & Sheep Dog Arena is behind the bins on the left, which is located next to Wagon Rides. ****Billy Tea Campfire is the undercover area to the left behind the water tank while Wagon Rides is the undercover area to the right.

Throwing a basketball at a hoop? It's something people can do at home. It's also in such an open space, making it look tacky. And the advertising is odd - "$5 for 3 balls. Everyone wins a prize". "Everyone"? So essentially it is 'Prize for $5'? Having not visited the Gold Coast theme parks in over 5 years, using Street View really shows how much the parks have changed with the now-targeting towards locals & an over-reliance on carnival games etc. to make revenue in most parks through repeat-visit locals.

  5. Want to ask if it's operating today? This is the place... no guarantees you'll get an answer though. If you are at Movie World and can report that it's running, delayed, temporarily closed, how long the queue is or if it's one or two train operation then please share... even if no one asks.

    Movie World's website

    Why is Movie World's website so old and outdated like they can open the best ride in the Southern Hemisphere but they are not capable of creating a reasonable website. Like come on it is so easy these day we even have websites to do it for you.

    DC Rivals HyperCoaster - backwards seating

    Managed to get a go on the backwards seats It was very intense and I can definitely see myself doing it again soon
  8. To put it politely, the hyped tour is a clusterfuck on night one. Full review later. I'm confident it will get better as the event goes on though. Please note - It's not all doom and gloom, this was said in the middle of a VIP experience that certainly did not seem enjoyable. In saying that, there's a lot of positives to come from the event which I'm outlining in a post further down the page. Don't give up on the event just because of some night one issues. I want nothing more than to see Fright Nights grow and improve.

    Fright Nights Photography

    Time to share your pics from this year's event. I found this years event a lot harder to photograph. The lighting was a lot harder to work with, but the event seemed a bit brighter. Not really sure how that works, but I guess it poses a challenge at least. And for all my complaining last year about the purple lighting, this image was blue when I started.
  10. Fast track can now be purchased for DC rivals for $15 (one use only)
  11. Early access for annual pass holders can now be booked from the park's website. 8:30am access to the park, running for two weeks from next week and then on the weekends for a few more.

    Fright Nights Reviews (2017)

    Event just finished, will do a full proper review tomorrow but I will say this Jigsaw is my favourite maze out of all the mazes so far and I think it will be the maze that will please a lot of people UTT Experience is much better than what it was last year Didn’t get the chance to watch any of the shows so I can’t comment on them Zombie Termination was ok, very similar to the offerings at Knott’s but I wouldn’t do it again How I rate the mazes as of the moment 1: Jigsaw 2: Conjuring 2 3: Halloween 4: FDTD IDK but Conjuring 2 and FDTD felt a lot more better tonight than what they were last year
  13. Promotional video for the dc rivals has been released but no set date of the school holidays its opening. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2nWv0YQY9Y&feature=share
  14. From the 21st-27th August, the normal day time parade at MW will be pushed back from 3:30 to 5pm.
  15. I also got the park today and was impressed. I look at the top of Batwing and think this coaster will be the same height. Fence at Green Lantern isn't blocked of either so here are a couple of pics.

    Wild west falls

    Good evening sorry if this has already touched base on here... but i am just wondering what is going on with wild west falls ..... is it usually closed for this amount of time for maintenance or are they doing a refurb???
  17. So this is a speculation thread along with predictions of how this would fit in Fright Nights along with a wishlist. So this is my first prediction for a maze in Fright Nights. Since its debut in 2011 American Horror Story has been a critically acclaimed series that it has been the most wanted IP in Halloween events. So how would a American Horror Story maze fit in Fright Nights? Well since its a anthology series it would start with Murder House were guest encounter Rubber Man, Tate Langdon, Pigman, Infanta, and others, the next part of the maze would Freakshow that guest encounter Elsa Mars' troupe of Freaks since its Halloween you might encounter the troupe of Hell along with there leader Edward Mordrake & his demon face along with being stalked by the season's iconic character Twisty. Lastly guest check into the Hotel Cortez formerly own by the Countess along with its ghostly residents, and beware of the demon hidden not under the bed, but within the bed. That's my first prediction of Fright Nights 2017.
  18. CLARK Kirby’s career has come full circle since, as a child, he helped clean the cinema of his then-fledging family business Village Roadshow. Village Roadshow commenced operating in 1954, owning and managing one of the first drive-in cinemas in Australia in the Melbourne suburb of Croydon. “I have a long history with the theme parks her — my grandfather Rock Kirby started Village Roadshow, back in 1954 in Victoria, the drive-in cinema down in Melbourne. “Entertainment is well and truly in the blood. My original background was in the cinema industry — I like to say I worked there when I was four years old when I started to clean the amusement rides down at Sorrento. “I worked every school holidays for the family in the cinema we had down there. “Then I completed one degree up here at Bond University and then went on to study at a number of other universities and ended up in investment banking associate director of mergers and acquisitions with UBS Investment “It was a great opportunity because I advised a lot of entertainment companies here in Australia — including PPL, Channel 7, News Corp. “It gave me a broadbased understanding of different business models and management styles within the entertainment world, some incredible companies. “It was very diverse, and very interesting trying to impart advice. “Then I came back and headed up corporate strategy for the group then since 2012 I’ve been chief operating officer of the Village Roadshow Group and sitting on the board of the theme park group. “In May this year I assumed the role of CEO and executive chairman of the theme park group. “Really because we do see it as our most important business and a business we see enormous growth in here and internationally.” What do you love about the Gold Coast? “I don’t believe there is any city in the world that can rival the family friendly lifestyle we enjoy here on the Gold Coast. “The weather and sublime beaches promote a healthy lifestyle and world class attractions mean kids and big kids will always be entertained and inspired. “I am also in awe of the incredible sense of pride and community spirit of the Gold Coast. “Initiatives like the Gold Coast Community Fund have been so generously embraced by locals wanting to help out those doing it tough.” What do you think can be done better on the Gold Coast? “We need to ensure there is sufficient planning and investment in essential infrastructure such as public transport and traffic management to deal with the existing congestion and to support and encourage private investment and development. “Coming from Melbourne, I have also seen the incredible power of sporting events to drive tourism and investment. “The Commonwealth Games is already electrifying the city and I would like to see a sustained calendar of major sporting events through the year.” In your travels, what have you seen being done elsewhere you think could work well here? “Universal City Walk and Downtown Disney are great success stories. “These retail, dining and entertainment precincts create a vibrant, fun and safe destination for all ages. “We are moving towards creating our own version of this alongside Movie World when Australia’s first Topgolf opens after the Commonwealth Games next year.” If money, laws, time and approvals were no issue, what is one big project you’d undertake tomorrow? “A cruise ship terminal — provided it meets all environmental requirements and the appropriate traffic mitigation solution is implemented, a cruise ship terminal would be phenomenal for the Tourism industry on the Gold Coast.” What conversations should Gold Coast movers and shakers be having? “We need to consider what our city is going to look like in five, 10, 20 years. Is our infrastructure going to be able to keep up with rate of growth predicted for the Gold Coast? “Where are the jobs going to come from and are we providing our kids with the relevant training and opportunities to succeed? “The long term future for the Spit is another important issue for me — there is so much uncertainty around development on The Spit. “We desperately need a masterplan to ensure that any development includes sufficient investment in infrastructure to ensure residents and existing businesses are not negatively impacted. “In the more immediate future, we need to ensure that we fully capitalise on the incredible exposure the Commonwealth Games will bring to the Gold Coast.” http://www.goldcoastbulletin.com.au/news/opinion/village-roadshow-ceo-says-gold-coast-is-golden-but-needs-to-keep-up-with-the-rest-of-the-world/news-story/796eedbff960121e90826c41e46f17ee

    MW New Website Backgrounds

    Wasn't sure how new these are but they definitely weren't there the last time I visited MW's actual website. Some of the pages for their rides have new backgrounds. GL: Batwing: SDSC: SE: WWF: DC Rivals: and Arkham Asylum: I think they are a nice new touch.
  20. I must admit that's what I thought when I saw it this morning. I will probably give it a try when it opens, but I doubt it'll be a regular one for me. Doesn't look much fun.
  21. I'm feeling a bit lazy so I'm not going to type out a back story on this one. Again, no prizes other than an internet high five and maybe a picture of a kitten. RULES: To make it fair for everyone, your design must be submitted using the template below The theme can be whatever you want as long as it's related to Fright Nights You can use whatever software you like to design it, as long as the design is submitted on this template You can submit as many designs as you like Entry and exit may be wherever you like Entries close 31 May 2017. If you submit an entry after that date, there is no guarantee of being awarded a high five or a kitten photo. You've got 2 sheds. You've got 2 mazes. A-maze me!
  22. An advertisement played on Hot Tomato today advertising a new Night Parade these school holidays at Movie World. The ad said “Come to the all-new parade these school holidays from 6 o’clock”. It also said new characters will be introduced to MW during the holidays. In the past MW, has run a special parade event like the one below. The advertisement did not mention a name for the parade so what do people think it will be?
