Theme park Crowds....

40 posts in this topic

Hi, just thought i'd ask anyone who has have visited any of the theme parks during the holidays as to how bad the line waiting times and general crowding of the parks were? Im seriously considering visiting a park these holidays, but the only thing putting me off is the crowds. Can you please tell me as to how your waiting experience was?

Thanks

Yesterday at Dreamworld:
- The Claw: Within 2 cycles

- Wipeout: First cycle

- Pandamonium: Within 2 cycles

- Tailspin: 25-30 minutes

- Other rides like TOT2 have long waits but that's no different to quiet days.

Also, at WWW the longest queue was about 15 minutes and that was for the hydro coaster. Most slides were pretty much walk ons.

Why is it that with 2 of the 3 threads you've started you've attached a completely unrelated stupid photo?

Because sometimes people just need that little bit of laughter to brighten up their day.

I'm sorry, but hold up a minute. Look at this creepy motherfucker. Look at him!

^I agree. I was at Movie World on school holidays last year and the lines were too long on every ride (even Justice League). I normally visit on off peak week days. Short lines make it a much more enjoyable day (except Dreamworld annoy me by opening some rides late, closing rides early, or not opening some at all)

I wonder when their gonna get heated water like its Gold Coast cousin has?

The pools are more than likely heated. It's not opened through winter because of the temperature difference. The Gold Coast has warm tropical weather all year round. While Sydney is warm during summer and fairly cold through winter.

Heated pools keep the same or similar temperature even if there is a slight temperature drop. People would rather swim in a heated pool because the temperature is bearable, unlike unheated pools, where it takes ages to get use to the temperature.

Wet'n'Wild would want their guests to have an enjoyable experience in the park. Rather than shooting down a slide into an unbearably cold pool, all to leave you rushing to the edge of the pool to dry off as quickly as possible.

Winter in Sydney gets fairly cold. Even if Wet'n'Wild Sydney stays open all year round they would start loosing money due to the fact that guest wouldnt enjoy sliding down slides into a warm pool all to climb out and encounter a burst of freezing cold air as you walk to your next ride.

Winter in Sydney gets freezing at times, well beyond 'fairly cold'.

A year long water park is not viable. The park can do whatever they want with water temps, but they can't effect the outside temp. No point going down a slide into a slash pool of 26 degrees and then getting out to a 12 degree day.
