You were hanging out for vintage car and merry-go-round action? The title is a bit misleading too, not really poor maintenance when they're closed for maintenance.

I'm not I'm saying tourist won't be happy when they see these rides closed i don't give two craps on Reef Diver

Seems like a lot at once and to be honest if I were a family with young kids I'd be annoyed. Not having an end date is not usually a sign of normal planned maintenance. It's weird it seems in the past 12 months, movie worlds maintenance has gotten heaps better but Dreamworld has done the opposite.

I'm with Rappa - unplanned issues during maintenance the likely explanation - not much they can do about that, and the terms and conditions do state that ride operations are subject to change without notice... I agree that if these are the only rides out of action, you're in for a good day - only question I have is with the carousel - for that to have an issue that takes it down until further notice after the installation less than a year ago - it's a concern.

With the vintage cars, the whole area where the attraction is usually prone to flooding, so with all the recent rain I wouldn't be surprised if that was a factor to its downtime.

During our visit to DW this time last year, I did notice more areas than I'd like appearing in need of maintenance, many areas looking "dated" or worn. Overall I recall it wasn't a huge issue, but something notable for a theme park charging such modern-day high entry prices.

Whilst I dislike significant attractions closed during times we plan to visit, I accept that it's sometimes necessary and at least they do advise well in advance via the webpage above which is good.
