WVTP Changes

166 posts in this topic

this topic is turning away from "WVTP changes" and more towards "Lets see what we could find what we think is wrong about WVTP" hahah, I sure this would be much more fun if you choose dreamworld as your topic park :P (And I really think movie world should have a look into the upcoming movie "where the wild things are" cause it looks like its going to be good) zane.

nah, there;s enough topics about that already. I think most of the people are still finding changes that are happening at WVTP's and if they want to say that theres something wrong then i still reckon its within reason. Edited by kieron5379

What about the movie soudntrack - the saxophones etc?
Its still very much there.
Being the massive Lethal Weapon fan I am I will be devastated if the re theme that area! The noises and the soundtrack set the scene for the ride fantastically!

Wow! I was just about to post up the exact same thing. They sure are discounting heavily and making many money saving deals over at WVTP. How are they going attendance wise?

Hey guys, Just reading this, and i couldn't help laughing. My son's birthday is actually on the 4th of may and he wanted to take his friends to Movie World. So just to clarify the birthday boy/girl gets in for free and his friends and myself get in for 50% off the normal rate. Good job WVTP and keep up the great deals!

This was the deal for annual pass holders last year. I was going to take friends with me to the park on my birthday, but nobody was free - we ended up doing something totally different instead. However, this year, my birthday falls at the end of May, and my birthday offer arrived in the email a few days ago - except the discount for up to 4 people was only 25% this time.

It says that the discount is 50%
Pre-purchased tickets at the 50% discount offer must only be used on the child's birthday and in conjunction with the free birthday entry.
Cheers

My birthday is the 5th and I received this too. I think it would be a pretty good way to spend the day too. Particularly when you consider how many people can't afford to buy an annual pass or even full-price for a day. Well done, WVTP!

When i read about the offer yesterday, (i can't remember but) i think it said the discounted tickets have to be booked 4 weeks prior to the birthday.
Yep, thats what the article says.
Child or child’s parent or guardian must have joined and activated their MyFun membership previously for the child to receive their birthday email 4 weeks prior to their birthday.

Here's a copy of the email I received dates 25th April:

Happy Birthday ADAM, BUGS BUNNY, TWEETY and the whole LOONEY TUNES gang at Warner Bros. Movie World would like to wish you a fantastically exciting upcoming birthday and a very happy year ahead! To celebrate your Birthday we'd like to offer you a great reason to bring your friends to visit Warner Bros. Movie World to help celebrate your special day with an awesome admission deal. Download and print the voucher and present along with your current Warner Bros. Movie World Annual Pass at the front gate and up to four of your friends will receive 25% discount* off full one day admission rates. And while they are visiting have your friends join you for the next year by upgrading their day admission to an Annual Pass so they too can take advantage of the special offers and discounts. Visit the Upgrade Booth located near the Fountain of Fame for assistance.
The link to the voucher within the email also says 25% I'm not saying the 50% deal isn't great for those who have children, but just that the annual pass deal has changed.

Not according to their website ash. But I believe it was rides open at 10:30 except for weekends and holidays, where the rides open at 10:00am. Great idea business wise, but damn did I and many others feel ripped off (and I knew about before the visit).

Sea World is open every day of the year except Christmas Day on 25 December. Rides and Attractions Open 10:00 AM
Wet'n'Wild Water World is open every day of the year except Christmas Day, 25 December. Restricted trading hours apply on ANZAC Day, Australia's National Day of Remembrance on 25 April, with the park opening at 1:30pm. The park opens at 10:00am every day and closing times vary throughout the year.
It seems only Movie World is the odd one out.

I guess this is on topic, but SW has lodged a DA for a:

BLD2908650 (23/07/2009) NEW FUN 'N' GAMES BUILDING
Lets hope they fill in some useless spot with this, and don't go and take a chunk out of larger bit of land that can be used for expansion....They do actually need to start slotting stuff in like a jigsaw since they have run out of space now.

Mmm, I'm not optimistic about it being anything better, going off recent developments. If I was on the panel, I would actually look at a splash battle which could be easily themed to pirates in association with the new stunt show while that's there. Afterwards, it would still fit in well. I doubt that would come under 'Fun & Games Building', of course, just putting forward my idea of what I'd do that would be famliy friendly and could be done on a moderate budget.

Splash battles are a lot of fun, but I cant help but think for 9-10 months of the year the ride would be deserted. They really are horrendously wet, much worse than say WWF, and literally like you have stood under a shower for a couple of minutes. To put it in perspective, at Alton at the peak of the busier day I was there the flume and rapids were in the 40-60 minute range, and battle galleons was hovering around the 5-10 minute mark, despite being much lower capacity. People like getting wet, but there is threshold. For that reason, I reckon put it at WnW, at least it would get consistent year round ridership, and better returns.

Well despite the fact that you generally have to walk down a pathway of about 100 - 150 metres to get to the 4D cinema, if they were using existing infrastructure and just fitting it out differently (say by non-load bearing walls, new electrical cabling etc) I doubt theyw ould need to submit a DA, so I don't see it replacing the 4D cinema. I'm thinking substitute for the current arcade taking up space under the licensed restaurant near cartoon beach. Where? haven't a clue.

Heard this was in The Bulletin sometime during the week, so if its correct tell me cause I didn't read it. But Wet'n'Wild is appently demolishing ALL BBQ's at the park that so many people use to use for picnics or big sporting groups. Once again to try and make a quick buck, if this goes through I put money on it they we say goodbye to the big groups and the parks oncew great attendance records fall dramatically.
