34 posts in this topic

I'm at Aussie World today and spoken to an inside source who says that there will be a "major new ride in 2017" and the "biggest ride for Aussie World yet".

Excitng! Any predictions?

Speaking to a representative on Sunday who informs that shipping containers started arriving early Sunday morning for their next install and that they are hoping for 2 new attractions in place by the end of the year.

Excellent news, thanks Wycen!! Obviously the shipping containers contain the ride to replace the Octopus which was removed earlier this year. This is the first that I have heard that they are looking at TWO attractions this year though.

If Aussie World keeps on adding one or two new attractions like this every 18 months or so then  it is going to be a very attractive option to visit for families.

In my mind, Aussie World is just one major attraction away from stepping into a far bigger market than they currently place themselves in.IMHO. both Aussie World and Adventure World in Perth are the nation's number one parks to watch for growth in the future.

Did your source mention anything about the type of attraction they are planning at all? Aussie World are a bit tight lipped at the moment, as you can imagine.:D

No nothing unfortunately...  Was very forthcoming with the above information and given the maps having coming soon over the Octopus I would agree that is the shipping containers...  TBH I have never been to the park but it is most definitely something that as a family and some friends are looking at doing at the end of the year :)

It would be very sad to see it go.  On the other hand though if it does go what sort of room does that open up for the park?  Maybe time for a big (for a park that size) modern coaster?  Imagine what a Boomerang would do for that place? Particularly if it had Vekoma's new non sucky restraints

Totally concur-It would be an absolute shame if it was to go if this report is true. Aussie World sure are very tight lipped about this.Given its rarity in the world, the uniqueness of the ride and its historical importance, surely there must be someway to keep it operating. LPS Wild Mouse unit is heritage listed and as such, they must maintain this ride to an accepted operating standard. If true, it must be something that is SEVERELY wrong for them to be contemplating removing it.Fingers crossed , hopefully we see the situation improves and Wild Mouse continues to operate, thrilling new generations to come.

Aussie World is ripe for a new modern small to medium coaster. Plenty of possibilities out there.
