Tube Hire

26 posts in this topic

Is it a must to hire the tubes? I know you'll need the tube for some rides but i was thinking, what if i wanna go on those rides that do not require the tubes? Where do i put my tubes then? What are the rides that need hired tubes anyway? :huh:

You only have to pay to hire tubes for use in the wave pool! :P All the other rides that use tubes don't require you to hire one. Geez, that would suck so badly if you had to pay for tube hire on top of admission!

They are asking if you have to hire your own tube and take it on the rides at wnw, not if they are free or anything dreamworld. The only thing you need a tube for is the wave pool (although thats not a necessity; you CAN go in there tubeless) and the lazy river (tube a must). All the slides at wnw have thier own tubes apart from the body slides on the mountain, twister and the speed slides off the Mach V which are tubeless. Super 8 has it's own mat.

Mind you, if it's a busy day, sometimes you'll be waiting ages for a tube. Some people *cough* mum *cough* spend their whole day there. Can you use hired tubes in the lazy river anyway?

I thought the fact this post is in the WnW forum was a dead giveaway to what park Velo was asking about. I wouldnt really bother hiring a tube for the wave pool though. Its the sort of thing you get over after a few minutes of being in there with it. Its probably worth hiring if you are seeing a dive in movie, just be prepared to be a prune.

You can either hire a Limo, drive or get a Taxi to Helensvale Station then a train to Nerang then a bus to Sufers.

Oh my wouldnt that be quite a sum to get back home. Thanks, will see how then. Oh will the weather be good during March? I will be there then, hope i won't be sweating like a hog. :D On a sidenote, will boardshorts be allowed? Any tips for a WnW first timer?

^ Weather here is always beautiful. Board shorts are certainly allowed. Tips for a first-timer? Hit the Extreme H2O Zone first and ride the ones there a few times so you have achieved that much. Whitewater Mountain (body flumes) can also get long lines during busy days so do that early too.

I see thanks. Would prefer to wear boardshorts there. Damn i will be there around early March, looks like i have picked the wrong time to visit Gold Coast. Its the rainiest month of the year. Will it rain so much tt they will shut down the rides? Sigh it will really be a spoiler man... if it rains on most days of the 6 days (4 themeparks plus repeats) i have set aside :(

Your worried about rain and your going to a water park? Care to explain how that works? Just messing with ya man, but rain will shut down Tower of Terror and Superman, apart from that its pretty much business as usual unless its either a torrential downpour, or a storm.

Just to be clear, he is talking about Electrical Storms in terms of them shutting down the rides at WnW.

Once I went to Movieworld, it was pouring all morning and all the scooby doo ride flooded and that closed, Lethal weapon was closed because of the lightning. WWW was still open but it was bad. So movieworld can practically close all its big rides if it rains too much, I dont know about the spaceshot. Another time at wet'n'wild by the way it was my best visit ever it was like 2 in the arvo and this huge fork lightning stuck and everyone screamed and nearly everyone left then half an hour later it was sunny and all the slides were open again and all the hired tubes were just floating by themselfs.

Lol, I'm sure the spaceshot would be closed. I wouldn't dare ride that in a storm anyway.

When I went to movieworld I asked why superman and LW close in rain and they said it was because when rain drops hit your face at a fast speed it feels like a bee's stinging you.

Yeh thats true I was on the front seat on the leathal weapon and half way up the hill lift it started pouring and it was really painful> The rain felt like little rocks hitting your face.

That happened a few weekends ago. I was getting in all the Gold Coast theme parks with Miro - ParkFanGermany - who I worked with at Wet'n'Wild - and his friend Jakob before they left for Germany. On Saturday, we hit Whitewater World in the morning then DW in the afternoon and the Cyclone queue was non-existant. So we went on, mainly to experience it going near the water park... and regretted it when it started to rain on the lifthill. 'Ok, maybe it's not going to be so bad,' I thought. How wrong I was. Talk about painful! We had our eyes squinted against the onslaught for the whole ride and barely saw anything of WWW. :P Oh well
