Received a flyer in the mail... "$20 Book Now... $25 at the gate... $3.95 surcharge applies for bookings..." I guess you don't really save $5 booking early, but I guess that isn't the point. :P Should be great if it's anything like last time, really looking forward to it!

I had always thought it was a breach of trade practices to advertise something at a certain price and then lump on an unavoidable extra charge. There is no way tickets could be gotten for just $20 so why be deliberately misleading?

The surcharge only applies if you are booking the tickets over the phone using their 133 FUN hotline.

I agree with you. It's like ticketek and ticketmaster 7. They charge you like $4.00 even if you print out your own ticket. Your using your own printer and paper so they shouldn't charge you. Now back on topic. I bought my ticket at MW yesterday. Can't wait to ride SE at nite.

Superman's better at day but lethal weapon is a whole new coaster at night, the G's felt so much stronger for some reason?

Did the ride feel faster than normal? I rode it once and it felt alot faster than normal, and you could really feel the G's. Went back to ride it again a little later that day and it was closed...

Is it because you can't see where you are going, so you don't really expect the forces as much or something along those lines?
Yes, something similar to that, also your exhaustion through the days activities and usually your body's ready for rest because your body usual has a sleep/rest routine. So you could pretty much say its because your body's unprepared and not seeing anything just helps. what i said before, lethal weapon is so much better at night. Zane.

I regret to advise that due to planned maintenance, the WWF ride will be closed for maintenance commencing monday 15th oct for a duration of 3 weeks which means it "wont" be running on the halloween nights. Also Bat Ride will closed from the 15th as well for at least 2 weeks and it too may be closed on halloween...I know, it wont be the same without them but there should be enough going on to entertain the masses. I am not happy with the decision about WWF, as it is the most popular ride in the park. I will do everything in my power to try and convince otherwise, cant promise anything though. They are already rostering staff so....

Totally agree. If they're planning maintenance in advance, surely they can organise this maintenance to start later, especially since the "most popular ride in the park" will be out of commission on a special event, where the park is being showcased. Also, just wondering what we'll be in for as far as the Halloween theme goes? (First time this year)

If I were going I would just stick to Superman given the lines move fastest on that ride.
If they run 2 trains. Scooby would be quicker than SE if SE was on 1 train. Edited by dreamworld_rulz

On the movieworld website it says that "There are currently no Rides or Attractions scheduled for maintenance" Where did you get that information. As i'm on the Gold Coast for two weeks starting Nov and i don't want to miss them two rides.
