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


Recommended Posts

I can attest to how true it is that many who don't like thrill rides are missing out. My mum really didn't want to go on it because she had seen the TV spots and thought it was a thrill ride. If I wasn't there to tell her otherwise she would have missed the ride altogether, and it's the only ride in the park she can go on.

Turn another ride backwards and add at least one turbine?

Hey guys, I had to join your community here at Parkz as I have been following this topic for a few months now as a guest and am really loving all of the back and forth. I am the lead designer of the

Scooby Doo was $13million... Although it did include extensive building work being the extension of the roof of the old Gremlins ride building. However $9million is still alot of money. Funny enou

Noticed that there is no signage for the new Justice League ride and as I was sitting outside a lot of people looking at and taking photos of the building but not going in. Even in the queue line people were commenting they thought it was just a walkthrough thing and not a ride. Meanwhile this is still displayed outside the new "DC" area (attached image of signage). Will we be seeing any updates done soon? Was able to walk on the the Justice League ride while Superman and Green Lantern had 30 minute wait times. Response: Thanks for the message, we are definitely aware of the old signage and have new artwork on the way. Lucky for you, you were able to get right on the new attraction ;)blank.gif Being a customer service rep I know they just used a combination of the can-can, phrase substitution, and staging techniques, so I replied: While yes it was great to get straight on, as I work in the hospitality industry where we frequently get guests attending the park, my main concern is the fact that many members of the public are missing out on the opportunity to experience the attraction due to the non existence of signage. There were also a few coming off disappointed as it is marketed on your website as a thrill ride...

Got to try this out 5 times today. Overall impression - good The only sign (apart from what's on the building itself, but you really can't see that until you're right in front of it) was a small A-frame sign that said it was open for technical rehearsals and the safety sign. The queue from ~4pm (when I arrived) was about 5 minutes. Got a few rides in before waiting for FN to start. Throughout the night when we went on it twice more and the line was at most 15 minutes. I don't think anyone knew it was there. First time the gun worked well and I got 71452. 2nd time the gun didn't work at all and I got about ~3k points (you seem to get pitty points along the way) Other times were hit and miss, which was a little annoying but nothing to cry about. Hitting the targets in 3D was pretty hard, not sure if I was just aiming at the wrong spot or what but it was pretty quick and you don't really seem to be given a chance to know what's going on. Theming was good. The stars in the tube with the silver dude (audio was a bit muffled or it was too noisy in the queue or whatever but I didn't catch his name) didn't go out when he shot them. Only 2 of the 3 did. Batman seems to be very lazy in this. He's at the start telling you what to do, then appears at the end to say good job. Lazy bastard could have helped.

I went last Friday night, it was a walkthrough straight past the pre-show to a 1 minute lineup. All of my friends thought the ride was closed since there was no line up outside the building and overall in my opinion the ride was okay, good theming but kinda boring. I know I got highest score but there was no sign when exiting to show everyones score and who got the highest?

I don't think they really need a tv or whatever at the end of the ride to say who got the highest. I mean theres only 4 in your car so you can just look at eachothers scores. Different to AvsPvsY where there are a lot more people and you need a tv showing the scores.

No, they need a screen. Put it down the bottom of the one with all the Justice League members thanking you. Went on this twice on Friday night, first time I was the only person in the queue so rode alone. Good to see all the animatronics were working, noticed the guy behind the door is wearing a Batman shirt. Still had issues with targets not registering though.

I think having it plonked at the bottom of that screen would be a break of theme and would be too hard to pay attention to the main screen and the small one. Better to have it overhead as you approach the unload. Xrazzberry you can't see other peoples scores if sat in the front.....also stop being a wanker with semantics.

No I have noticed you seem to get random points during the ride including during the final screen. Approaching the screen is also where the photo is taken. I posed for it with both guns. Think about it, the only time everyone is really facing forward to look at the screen for the photo.

      Hey everyone,
      As it is looking very likely that the Arkham asylum at movieworld will be replaced what does everyone reckon the theming for the replacement attraction will be

      There will be no theme park that will be able to compete with us’: Movie World plans for a hotel
       
      Village Roadshow has reignited its plans for a hotel at Movie World, lodging a trademark application that reveals its likely branding for the nine-storey, 398-room landmark.
       
      VILLAGE Roadshow has reignited its plans for a hotel at Movie World, lodging a trademark application that reveals its likely branding for the nine-storey, 398-room landmark.
       
      IP Australia records show Village Roadshow applied for a trademark for “Hotel V” at the end of March. It is pending registration.
      Village Roadshow, which was delisted from the ASX last year after a takeover by private equity firm BGH, gained development approval for a hotel in 2017 for its 14ha site at Oxenford.
       
      Planning documents reveal the development will include 32m high, nine-floor “theme park hotel” with 398 suites which is earmarked for land currently occupied by its northernmost carpark fronting Entertainment Drive.
       
      The ground floor will house reception, a lobby, administration office, business centre, bar, function centre, cafe, kitchen, kids club, amenities, gym and hotel back-of-house facilities.
       
      Ramp access and an elevated walkway on level one is planned to provide guests connection to the adjoining restaurant and dining precinct building plus theme park entry.
       
      The project is also set to incorporate “extensive outdoor swimming facilities, outdoor guest recreation areas and feature landscaping plantings”.
      A three-storey restaurant and dining precinct building, including a ground-level cafe and upper-level restaurant is also a feature of the plan.
      “Guest access to the restaurant and dining precinct is provided via an elevated walkway above the proposed porte-cochere, which will provide a prominent architectural feature” planning documents lodged by Urbis said.
       
      Village Roadshow declined to comment on hotel progress, but chief operating officer Bikash Randhawa has been active on social media, hyping big upcoming reveals for the company: “I don’t do this often, but get ready for some HUGE announcements from us. There will be no theme park on the GC or in Australia that will be able to compete with us.”
      When someone posted a photo of a Harry Potter studio, Mr Randhawa replied: “That’s small with what will happen over time.”
      When another person suggested another theme park was coming to the Gold Coast, he said “over the next few announcements, better than that”.
      Mr Randhawa said “no way” when someone suggested a casino could be built at Movie World.
      The hotel will be Village Roadshow’s latest in a hefty pipeline of investments on the Gold Coast, which in recent years, have included the $35 million DC Rivals Hypercoaster, Top Golf and its $50 million Atlantis precinct at SeaWorld, which is expected to be completed in mid-late 2021.
      The news follows revelations last week that Dreamworld’s owner Ardent Leisure was also shopping for major new attractions as work continued on its $32 million flagship ride, the Steel Taipan.
