Well, it depends on how good the waterpark is, if its really good and has things like master blasters, toilet bowl slides and those artifical surf things i might just be looking foward to the waterpark more. But its hard to compare yet. And BTW adam, "exitation" isnt a word, but "excitement" is.

I know "exitation" isn't a word, but I didn't use that word, I used "excitation". In case you weren't aware, 'excitation' can be defined as:-

1. The act or process of exciting or an instance of it. 2. The state or condition of being excited. 3. Physiology. The activity produced in an organ, tissue, or part, such as a nerve cell, as a result of stimulation.

Try typing 'exitation' into Google and see if it offers you an alternate (i.e. correct) spelling. :) And BTW gazza, "exitement" isn't a word, but "excitement" is.

Toilet bowl slide? A wave pool sounds like the go, especially if it can produce consistent 6ft right hander barrels and I can slap me and my 9' performance longboard on them :)

I've never been a huge fan of water parks. They burn my pale british skin (despite the fact that my parents, and grandparents are Australian). Anyway, Roller-coasters are more exciting, hence I vote SE.

I'm far more excited about what the Dreamworld Water Park will do for the industry in terms of giving water parks here some much needed stimulation - it's been a stagnant area for far too long. Superman will be great, but won't have the impact that an entirely new theme park will.

To bring up something that came up in conversation the other night. I do wonder just how much impact the water park will have. I do worry for Dreamworld that the public may still see it as the 'waterslide bit' at Dreamworld as opossed to the 5th Major Gate on the Gold Coast. I am excited to see what this new attraction brings to the table but I fear for it that WnW will emerge the true number one player from the battle.

For Dreamworld to succeed with this attraction they will need to be able to market it successfully. To let people know it's not just Dreamworld, that it's a separate new park on the level of the existing parks on the Gold Coast. I personally wouldn't be so convinced Wet'n'Wild will win in the long run. It seems to me like WVTP always plays defensive. Their attractions almost always come after Dreamworld's (Giant Drop to Wild West Falls; Cyclone to Scooby-Doo; The Claw to Superman) - John Menzies was even quoted saying that Polar Bear Shores was added solely to give them the edge on Tiger Island. Even with Wet'n'Wild, we wouldn't be seeing a $20 million investment right now if Dreamworld's water park wasn't in the pipeline. I have no doubts that the first few years will be tough, but Dreamworld would know this and have it accounted for.

I agree too, dreamworld need to remove "dreamworld" from the water park name. By the way, is dreamworld waterpark the official name they are calling it or is that the name it has at present. A cpl mths back i did the search for www.dreamworldwaterpark.com.au and sure enough the name has been taken, when itdirects you to trademark the site name:) I was thinking of paying the $50 or whatever it is to register the name, if DW already hadnt, lol. Anyhow, a name like, Cylone bay, typhoon lagoon (hello disney law suit:p) soak city(i know knotts has it:P) hurrican harbour(sixflags,lol) but names like these r awsome, and would suit the goldcoast summer atmosphere.

I was thinking Knotts Berry Farm have Soak City next door. So Dreamworld could call there park DRENCHED CITY or Boomerang Bay like there sister parks in the USA. "you know the parks that also have Nick Central"

^^Drenched city would be terrible, Boomerang Bay would be spot on I think. Seeing as Dreamworld already has a relationship with Paramount (Nick Central, Tomb Raider) there would probably be no problems with the name. And the whole Australia theme would fit, seeing as it would be IN Australia, and I'm sure foreigners would love it. On the whole I'm definitely more excited about the water park, I mean how often do you get to see an entire park being built, and It will be interesting to see what sort of ideas Dreamworld can come up with.
