Movie World new ride: JUSTICE LEAGUE: Alien Invasion 3D.

779 posts in this topic

I just thought that it would be good to create a new thread about both new rides the attraction announced for spring 2012 on the MW FB page for the park this year. I am really wondering what the new ride in the batman building will be. That's if it will be inside the building.

There is actually only 1 new ride as the second one is Lethal Weapon retheme. I definitely think it'll be a dark ride, its exactly what movie world needs at the moment. Hopefully they put some real effort into theming, though based on past rides (lets just forget Green Lantern exists for a moment, ok?) I'll say we don't have to sorry about that.

I think it's GREAT that Movie World has begun releasing info and building up the suspense for a ride as far away as September. I also think it's great that Movie World are adding 2 new attractions this year. Go Village Roadshow! You really know how to do theme parks well

A good dark ride would be awesome. Something on the scale of Bermuda Triangle would be great but I don't think they could do that in the time they have. Maybe that's what they have in store for next year with LTRR and BT replacements.

Yeahh, That is why Movieworld said, 'This year we will launch two epic attractions'. Edited by xRazzBerryx

Movie world have put this on their website http://movieworld.my...TOP-SECRET.aspx Love the exclamation points before and after the sentence, just like something a non english speaking Japanese theme park would put on their website. On another note, I love the new Movieworld website! Much better than before when you couldn't even view pictures. I HATE the new descriptions for the rides though, they sound like they were written up by a 6 year old. Also, Wild West Falls is now an "extreme" thrill ride. Way to put families off riding one of the parks only family rides.

The background image on the website reminds me of the sort of photo montages all those fanboy theme park sites and facebook groups love to create so much. Interesting to see Lethal Weapon's track heavily featured. Guess this means it definitely won't be getting repainted. Either that or the website guys just had no clue

And a "Water Roller Coaster"

Well, it does "Coast", it does have a Track, as well as a Chain Lift, Air-Time, and Water, so I don't see why not!

I think WWF is pretty thrilling. The backwards dip and the steep end hill both get the heart pumpin :D

Aren't you forgetting that MW doesn't want families in the park any more. Removing all rides families (excluding Scooby as not all families can go on that) can go on. They couldn't remove WWF, so they decided to scare families off instead. Just for my defence. in case no one got it I was joking.

WWF definitely isn't a coaster. To be honest, even Journey to Atlantis at Seaworld Orlando doesn't have enough track for me to call it a water coaster, but everyone seems to classify it as one... The only "water coaster" Id definitely call a coaster is Poseidon at Europa Park, as to me its a coaster with a splashdown, instead of a log flume with a coaster section like most water coasters. But no WWF definitely isn't by any standards a coaster, and the manufacturer (Hopkins rides) call it a flume.

I was thinking the same thing joz. So much for it being about the new 2012 rides. Half of the information from the other thread that directly refers to this wasn't split off into this thread either.

Did anyone else read the article in the Courier-Mail earlier this week about Village Roadshow’s profits for the last period. It look’s as though the studios and park are doing okay cashflow wise. Hopefully this means good things for the future and maybe even better attention to detail in the attractions for this year!!! As for 2012 attractions. I would love to see a 4D simulator attraction in the batman building. It surprised me when the Batman Ride went because it was unique to any park at the moment in Australia and I loved the feeling you get in the simulator. And the shows were regular and they took a lot of people off other rides. I'm not sure there is enough room in the batman buildings for a quality dark ride with track work etc....

Well movieworld is doing alot for the park and rebuilding it we are getting new rides 2011 green lantern, 2012 justice league or wonder women in the old bat building, 2013 looney tunes replacement?? And improvements to current rides and they have been fixing main street and the general look of the park so it shows they are ready to spend money so it can only get better from now on and I can't wait to see what movieworld will look like in 5 years

From the placement of this sign it seems pretty certain the "Spring 2012 Attraction" will be in the old Batman Simulator Building. 404954_10150593667747182_106147617181_9358523_1532714208_n.jpg

Ok, should we split off from this thread and make a new one about how stupid the person who wrote Movieworlds ride descriptions for the website is?

Yes I'm also sick of thread hijacks. Back on topic... I'm thinking the "ride" in Sept won't be a ride at all because it's worded as "attraction" which makes me think its going to be a) something in the old Batman building and B) something to do with the Justice League. Maybe an interactive tour or something?

Ill make a new thread about the website then. My original post was more about the new ride page which somewhat hints to new attractions.

I made this comment a few days ago in the LW thread before it was split:

My guess would be a Justice League-themed Sally Corp Interactive Dark Ride.

I thought I'd repost it here because I have something that could support my theory. In an interview in October 2011 (just before the closure of Batman Adventure), John Wood the Chairman of Sally Corp stated the following:

We have our biggest project that we can’t talk about unfortunately, but this is really going to be a blockbuster! It’s an interactive dark ride with a major intellectual property involved with it, a major location and a major park. We think it’s going to be the top of the industry, we will know for a year, but we are working to integrate some what you know. It’s actually slated for Christmas 2012.

It seems to check most of the boxes. Despite Christmas falling just outside of the "Spring 2012" period I believe it could still be it. I wouldn't think it would be something overseas as it is the wrong time of year for the majority of their attractions.

      Hi there! I haven't visited the gold coast since 2010, and I'm thinking about returning for a trip later this year in December. Could somebody please offer a quick summary of the current state of the parks there? I'm specifically interested in Dreamworld/White Water World, Warner Bros. Movie World, Sea World and Wet n Wild. Those are the parks I'm most familiar with, but I'm sure there's way more worth visiting on/around the coast. So if you could offer what your experiences have been like recently, it would be very much appreciated. What's the best? What's the worst?
      Looking into other forum posts, and the recent news articles - I've got the feeling Village Roadshow Parks isn't doing so hot lately. But maybe I'm mistaken on that, what do you think? 
      Thank you for your time.

      I just found a website where you can view high-quality historical satellite imagery of the Gold Coast. It is amazing seeing the theme parks in such detail in the past.
      Just an idea to 'past the time' until MW's hypercoaster track/support pieces appear, if anyone wants to see something specific of a Gold Coast theme park, just post below and I'll upload one (or the most popular request) each day until then. I'll provide the link to the full website (and thus, the source of the imagery) when the pieces arrive if there was something you wanted to see that had not yet been posted.
      To start off, here is Sea World on Tuesday the 10th of July 1973:

      How can the theme parks in Australia stop people having no confidence in them?
       
      This is what what was said after the GD safety stop.
       
       
       
      “We spent the day at dream world today and obviously started off with the iconic 'giant drop.' After spending 5-10minutes stuck up the top and my missus getting quiet nervous saying 'this isn't right we shouldn't be up here for this long,' we finally came down. We were offered no explanation at the bottom, even though we were greeted servicemen/engineers and security, and were ushered along and out the gate quickly. Throughout the day we also noticed that no other visitors were riding the giant drop and it remained empty. I am disappointed in the lack of communication from the staff in this anxious time and suggest that visitors are better informed and looked after in the event of another ride failure, especially the giant drop! “
      Other people’s replies
      “I'm glad you are both okay. “
      “I didn’t see anything on the news glad your ok “
      “OMG, I hope you guys are okay! I heard about this and saw you were at Dreamworld, luckily no one got injured this time! “
      “Absolutely disgusting it's not good enough,this time all were ok thankfully😱Same as SeaWorld some of their rides weren't operating but still full price “
      “There seems to be a spate of equipment hiccups, and failures, with some of these rides, lately. Glad you guys came out on the good side of the ledger. “
      “Going to buy a lotto ticket I think! “
      “Its disgusting after everything thats happened there you would have tjought they would have spoke etc to you “
      “Not good think things are getting to old need replacing “
      “Katie Stevens this man is not concerned the sensors worked- good thing they did or who knows what could of happened. What he is saying is that there was a severe lack of communication from Dreamworld around the incident. This was a big enough incident to alert engineers and security and it even made the news. There should have been communication for all patrons who were on the ride at the time “
      “now I'm freakish out about our visit “
      “They haven't learned “
      “OMG!!! Not good. Are you guys ok? Huge spit needs to happen- not good enough!!! So long as you 2 are ok that's the main thing it Dreamworld Gold Coast need to get their act together!!!! “
      “The fact we were able to ride the attraction while it obviously wasn't in 100% working condition is in itself concerning, just expected better from dreamworld “
       
       
      I totally understand people feeling like this.
      The media have beaten DW up and now are beating every other park up.
      What I would like to know from the parks is why does it come across they are not fighting back.
      All the parks know that every stoppage is going to be pasted everywhere.
      I think all the parks need to come together on this and create some type of positive campaign about why rides stop.
      At the very least when something does happen they need to talk to the customers.
      Customers are anxious and it’s up to the parks to solve this.

      Road Runner Rollercoaster was the 2nd ride to make it into Parkz All Stars Aussie Theme Park.  Escape from Madagascar is the 2nd ride turned into paperclips.


       
      Parkz All Stars Aussie Theme Park line up

      1: Jet Rescue

      2: Road Runner Rollercoaster.


       
      I know everybody has been checking in every 5mins to see who will battle next and the wait is now over thanks to @Santa07.    @Santa07 gave us a selection of 3 but I thought I would stuff it up and add one more..

      It’s time to battle! which one will be left standing?
