I'm quietly confident that Zodiac is down for annual maintenance :P . It still stands, however someone's knocked off the gondolas :shock: That's the last I heard anyway. It went down about last Monday (24th Nov). I drove past on the M4 yesterday and she was still there I can tell ya.

^ What he said. There's no way that thing will close down. If it was removed (Zodiac was still there on Sunday), then it would be a relocation of the ride. I'm sure you meant that the gondolas were taken down. My pictures of Zodiac being taken down (and many other Wonderland photos) are here. ~Liam

Well Nightshifter sorry to burst your bubble AGAIN but the Zodiac was sitting hapily in it's place at 4pm this afternoon, no carriges of course but the arms and big long, arm. Nightshifter one word of advice, please chack your sources before you post info, as it often gives people not in Sydney a bad perception on Wonderland. And good to see, your spellings improved, been listening in class now have we? Except this paragraph

i heared that the park will end where the space probe currently is.
it should be heard, just helping out.

Try happily, its, carriages, check and spelling has (if you must, spelling's) :twisted: muhahaha Why would they spend money relocating Zodiac may I ask? It would probably cost them more than the ride is worth these days. There's no need. It's fine where it is. I like her spot. Good place for the op to have a kip and put your feet up :P

They think that our convos are interesting in these forums. lol :D

Shifty, you're right mate. How else are you going to get your answers unless you post? I've said it before, that's the idea of something like this, however I suggest you post as more of a question if you're unsure next time. Either way, you'll still get an answer anyway and a rumour doesn't bother me. It will just be quashed if someone knows better and expect a bit of a ribbing like you got if you make a statement and don't post as a question. In regards to the sh*t, make a choice. 1. I suggest you get the sh*t off your liver and join in the fun and games we have on this site, and put sh*t on us like we do to each other. That way, you will see that most have a sense of humour, and like taking the pi*s out of people - especially scatterbrains (sorry if I am insulting you - well, not really). 2. Pi*s off and thanks for coming. I hope you take the choice 1. Read back at the sh*t that has been posted. See where your ticker is old son, and YOU make the choice - I'll bet you can't resist answering us. I'm sure Rich as webmaster values your input, so keep it up mate and you'll get your answers.

It hasn't and won't be taken down so who cares? If the Zodicrap was painted, even though they're much bigger jobs I guess, I'd have Demon and Probe in front of the Zodicrap in the queue for a paint job. Zodicrap was only painted maybe 3 years ago?? Someone verify... They both need a paint job badly. Demon is almost back to the Titan days (ok maybe slight exaggeration :P) and Probe looks more pale everytime I drive past. Are you sure it was really painted? It's a big job and I don't know of any down time. If it was going to be painted, they'd be doing it now one would think...

Daniel, Zodiac has been re-painted a couple of times over the last few years, remeber when it was red, white and blue? They did a full re-paint in those colours a few years ago, then about a year/year 1/2 ago it was re-painted purple and yellow (which looks really good). I imagine that this annual maintenance is not for a major re-paint but a mojor overhaul of the machanics of the ride. Yes they will do a minor patch up job on the paint work but the majority of the overhaul will not be seen by anyone but the maintenance department. "The Bus is now leaving for Laos"

Ta mate, answered the painting question for us and confirmed that it won't be repainted this time around. It doesn't need it. Nothing a bit of turps can't fix anyway (graffiti). Demon on the other hand... How's she looking these days Bus?

Chaps, Noticed that half the gondolas have returned on the Transylvania side. Talk was it was meant to be open again by the weekend. Looks like the rain put a 'dampner' on things.

Zodiac is very much alive and running (soon anyway). We probably won't noticed much of a change in the asthetics of the ride as most of the work would of been done to the mechanics of the ride. "The Bus is now leaving for Frisby on the Wreake, Leicestershire, England"

How exciting. I'm sure all the operators are pushing each other out of the way to get back up there. Is that 'thing' still written on the control panel? I didn't do that by the way you bastards. Even though I got the blame from all concerned :P MUHAHAHAHA
