Towards the end of the recent ParkChat Live episode Bikash (the current COO of Village Roadshow Theme Parks) pretty much said there’s possibly more to come at Movie Word.

Meanwhile, Wet N Wild continues to rot.

Man could that be more vague

All the slides will need if if they are building 6 new ones. WWW slides are all somewhat compact and visible across the park. 6 brand new ones will be jarring against the old faded ones.

Which are in the process of being repainted, which means they're not faded.

No because it's a powered coaster so it doesn't count.

Aren't all coasters powered at one point or another?    If Rivals wasn't powered to get up a hill it would be damn boring sitting in a station.

The very definition of a roller-coaster is that at some point it relies on gravity as an acting force, so coasters that are powered for the entire journey aren't counted by most enthusiasts.

Tom and Jerry from September 21

This is probably the lamest thing Village Parks have done this year. Promoting 2 new Costume Characters as a Major Holiday draw? Not to mention Characters that are only well known by Children from generation X, Y at a pinch. Not exactly the Target audience here.

Yeah, there has been the same for Looney Tunes in recent years too.

Promoting appearances of a couple of new Costume Characters as Major Drawcards is my gripe. MW have been adding new Costume Characters for years and without being central as Major events, unless coupled with a new Show, Parade or both. In this case neither.

Maybe because they are not Looney Tunes characters, so them joining the stable is a bigger deal? 

I dunno, I have no problem with it. 

MW has had recent large expenditure and SW is now the focus. 

VRTP’s results presentation due in the next week or 2 and maybe we’ll hear more

There isn't anything wrong with a Facebook post which says 'Tom & Jerry are at Movie World from the school holidays. Hell Facebook is exactly the correct level to pitch that at. The problem is that even in presentations to the share market they talk about it like it's a big deal when it's really a total nothing.
