Doomsday Destroyer - 2016 Movie World construction

Recommended Posts

the theme for SE is your on a subway train and an earthquake happens. before the subway train is crushed supes saves you and pushes you to the next station. when you hope on a real train you don't get off at exactly the same station you board on right away now do you? that's where the immersion comes in.


so if you don't want to use a locker than either leave your stuff with friend/fam OR use your private locker and stop complaining about them :P

Latest piccies...  Annnd a video  

my spelling played up i mean latest more to come!

I don't understand why people are complaining about content. We've never had such comprehensive coverage of a new attraction before. Every member's contribution has been fantastic and is very much app

there's a few people in here (won't name names) that have been saying it doesn't need a drop floor, won't be one. now that there's a nice closeup of it...confirmed that's the joke :lol:

Still doesn't need on. Didn't you hear Movie World has teamed up with the Australian Paralympic team to get some new recruits into their ranks.

To be honest, I'd rather many people visiting the park and sharing their construction pics than none at all.

Yes, some are daily visitors, but I don't want that to discourage the less-frequent visitors taking similar pics to what may have been posted the day before.

You never know, it might just be one of these "also" pics where we notice some subtle differences that provides a major clue to the ride/themeing/etc.

Anybody else thinking they are having issues to get it balanced?   

That's what I've been thinking for a while too. It hasn't really been testing except for slow speeds and they did do something to the counterweights quite a bit after it was first running...

It still looks like some theming will go on the arms. I wonder if I'm wrong, or they're waiting for the performance issues (if any) to be fixed.

they will run it on slow speeds for a while than gradually ramp it up. doesn't mean it's unbalanced. the motor and gears are all brand new they need to slowly wear them in.

 Yeah my thoughts exactly Blade. Lots of moving parts on these, you would assume there would be a 'break in' procedure... surely? Even if it's just to ensure all the gears have seated properly.

If memory serves, the 'spear' was only mounted on one side of one car. It's hardly going to be balanced doing that...

Plus, only a couple of dummies got to have a ride.  After giving it much more thought I now believe the spear was installed to test it.  What they were testing on the spear or ride, I do not know.

      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.
