I hope it is WWW stage 3. Looking at the crowd sizes today between the 2 water parks you can definately see that WWW needs some urgent additions. Then again I will be happy with whatever it is... even Big Brother.

Nice to see the 12 year olds over at outsiders have put this up like they have some big info.... with a tiny little comment about where it came from.

OI Buddy, We are not 12 year olds, Brad found the Job opening on the Dreamwolrds website. he posted it to the page, after seeing it i said i recalled seeing this on Parkz this afternoon. Brad then gave skeetafly credit as the source. If any of you have an issue with this please dont hesitate to contact me - harrisonk@outsidersaustralia.com Edited by HarrisonKohn

Dream World needs to not put in any new rides for the next few years and save up for a decent rollercoaster. I would happily forego any new rides for up to 5 years if we got something amazing at the end of it. But of course that won't happen. Meh

Its not so much about 'saving up' for a new coaster...They are a well resourced company and can chuck down heaps if they want to...Thats how they were able to finance the $60mil cost of White water World. Its more about the return it will make. They'll spend $20 mil on one if they think it will make them back $20 mil.

Deadline focused? Like how the past additions have met their deadlines for opening on time with no problems... I think this has to do with the makeover of what was Nick Central. About the only thing I can think of upcoming that requires all the highlighted skill sets. Don't think after this year there would be anything like that requiring all those abilities opening and don't really see the next WWW stage would be a 6 month job from start to finish.

I like this dave guy :lol: Even if it was WWW3, 6 months to me seems a bit rushed, keep in mind though I have absolutely no idea how long these things take, I would just assume for a multi-million (assuming) investment, it might take a bit longer to plan, get approval, and order everything.

Now now, play nice dave, just because the outsiders are under 18 doesn't mean they aren't professional adults (lol). Also, let me know when you want to have that beer or three at Dirty Harry and I'll be there Dave, been a big fan of your work since June last year.

I had the same thoughts about the Dreamworks installation, but surely they would have that sorted already. It was touted as being a Summer Surprise, which would most likely mean a December opening. That's 3 months at best, and they haven't even hired anybody yet. If they allow a few weeks for the hiring process (I haven't looked up the ad to see what the deadlines are), then this project can't even start until November. Given the 6 months they have outlined for the position, this looks like it will be something opening in June/July.

Also, let me know when you want to have that beer or three at Dirty Harry and I'll be there Dave, been a big fan of your work since June last year.

You can afford to have 3 beers at the Dirty Harry Bar? You must really be making the big bucks ;)

I don't want to say this too loudly, but alcohol prices are the one area of the revenue department that I'm quite pleased with. I mean, sure it's more expensive than the local pub, but it's far cheaper than Surfers. I wouldn't be upset if they pushed the grog sales more, and when I go to Fright Nights I intend to spend lots of money in club blood, and I encourage everyone else whose old enough to do the same.

Would be nice if public transport was a little more accessible after hours from the parks for their night time events - certainly opens up the option of having a drink.

Alcohol prices are more reasonable than most clubs I have been to, I was just having a bit of fun. Ironically, I think beer is cheaper than soft drink (the way it should be!). I look forward to having a few vampire prepared drinks in a fortnight's time.

I agree on the pricing also. As for Dave, nice when a new member seems to actually get the spirit of what Parkz is all about!
