Favourite Ride

  1. I thought I'd start a seperate forum for Leviathan specific construction updates, so that we can easily follow the coaster in one place. This was my first time seeing the vertical construction progress, so I took my big camera lens to the park to get some close up shot of the construction Overview: Close ups: Despite the coaster not yet reaching it max height, it can already be seen for a lot of different points across the park
  2. Seems odd that the Flume ride has no reopening date for maintenance? Last week it said 20th November....
  3. Have you been on the new Vortex at SW, is this a similar reincarnation of the Wipeout?
  4. Operating Hours at Wet'n'Wild Gold Coast Monday - Wednesday the park will be closed. Thursday operating as it has normally during off-peak (10-3) Friday-Sunday normal operating hours. I will be surprised if they keep Wet n Wild open through Winter this year. It struggles through winter on a normal year, and during those years there's always plenty of debate on why it's open, I'm sure there's plenty more support for that debate this year. All I'll say on that debate is that you're extremely lucky if you get close to 1000 people (a day) through the gates, there are many
  5. From The Brisbane Times: Here is the Facebook Live stream they made of the protest (protest begins at around the 03:20 mark):
  6. My reason for this is that all signage for Spongebob 3D has been removed and a while back when they announced Vikings revenge would retire they said it would be removed to make way for a new attraction coming in 2019 but as you all would know that never happened and the ride has sat SBNO for 4 years or so
  7. I just thought of marking a place for us to share stories from Theme parks whether they’re insane, scary or happy share them here. Here’s one from theme parks me I remember going into hot wheels sidewinder just to look at the queue because I was too scared to go on it Don’t know what’s going on with the photos so just try your best to ignore it thanks
  8. Here are some drone shots of the vortex and the new Atlantis construction the vortex looks near complete Note this is the youtube video i got it from
  9. Can someone please show me the route of the former Sea world Train. Thanks
  10. The demolishing of the water slides has finally started. The question to be answered is why have they fenced off the car park????????? Thank your TPSN for the photos.
  11. Why did the Sea World Water park get removed? Just curious
  12. Global travel giant TripAdvisor has banned ticket sales to theme parks and tourist attractions that breed or import whales, dolphins and porpoises for public viewing. The new policy, which will impact major venues including Sea World on the Gold Coast, comes after the travel company stopped ticket sales for elephant rides, selfies with tigers and other tourist entertainment deemed cruel to animals. Sea World has hit back at the announcement, saying the health and wellbeing of animals were its top priority and it has a strong reputation for caring for marine animals. Tri
  13. So I am surprised nobody has mentioned this yet. But Sea World did a live stream this morning about the polar bear cub and announced a few things. The most exciting will be Castaway Reef which is the new splash pad area which will be a multi million dollar attraction opening in October this year. Along with the Sea Jellies opening next April, the new Sea Lion show and the VR replacement in 2019. So hopefully we see SW transform back into its former glory.
  14. The Queensland Government has released the “The Spit Master Plan” for public consultation. https://haveyoursay.dsdmip.qld.gov.au/30703/documents/91000/download. The current SW car park is marked to be turned into a Village Centre. "Which entails a low-rise boutique mixed use development facing The Broadwater and Carter’s Basin provides additional short-term accommodation linked to Sea World and a multi-level car park. Visitors can arrive by ferry or light rail and are provided with a range of connected experiences, including afterhours activities, creating a vibrant ne
  15. An interesting article from The Sydney Morning Herald: The article which brought this "feud" to light 5 days ago only refers to the selling of Village Roadshow Pictures, "Village Roadshow's British marketing business, its stake in the American iPic Theatres premium cinema outfit, and its Hollywood holdings" as the closest thing to John Kirby's proposed 'break up' of Village Roadshow which is referred to in the above article. Is that what is meant by "break up"? Or is it the 1st stage of the "break up"? Or would the company split in 1 go forming a new theme park-cinema-studios
  16. Sea World is to demolish shortly the iconic Rescue Point Lighthouse, which has been a feature of Sea World and it's lake since 1972, the year Sea World opened (or more precisely, got renamed from 'Surfers Paradise Ski Gardens'). It's one of the first things you see after entering the park, immediately across the lake, and gives an immediate sense of the park's maritime theme even though over the years, the Lighthouse has been a low-key attraction at the park featuring mainly exhibitions such as to promote Sea World's Research & Rescue Foundation and their work. It's most recent usage would
  17. Not sure if this has been discussed, But does anyone else think that Village Roadshow should sell Sea World to 'Sea World Theme Parks & Resorts'? And if so, does anyone actually know the chances of it actually happening? The park seems to have gotten worse over the years and it's honestly just sad, so I'm hoping that a decent company could make it 'good' again. Plus if they did sell it, then it could help Village pay off debt. After all, they sold Wet'n'Wild Sydney, so what harm could selling Sea World do? (By the way - if this has been discussed before th
  18. Some interesting points from the results presentation: This was written in the 'Cost Reduction' section of the 'FY19 Outlook'. Could this mean less operational time of the rides in financial year 2018/2019? Also, TopGolf's attendance is stated as 25,000 people in the last financial year. TopGolf was only open for 19 days last financial year so it's average attendance is 1316 people per day so far. Based on the current attendance and revenue, each TopGolf visitor spends $36 per visit. TopGolf's maximum capacity is 540 (90 bays of 6 people) and since bays are booked hourly (ov
  19. Sea World Jellyfish attraction update - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVjHtpZ5BSc Construction going on everywhere, jet rescue main viewing path/out the front of vikings ride and entrance to splashdown of flume and entrance of storm blocked off. Jet rescue operating with long line. Creatures of the deep ending fenced off. Lots of maintance is all you need to know.
  20. Storm and JR also now have 1 hour free locker hire
  21. 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 h
  22. As has been occurring with Movie World, there have been a number of improvements happening around Sea World lately too. Fast Track is no longer available at the park, with signs being replaced by Fast Photo The Frozen Coke stand in The Plaza has received an upgrade The Dolphin Aqua Adventure has been refurbished The decking around the Nickelodeon Store has been replaced And the Seal Guardians set is now complete and staff were meeting and discussing the new show Really bright and vibrant now There is a cave in
