I remember that one always being kind of empty. Didn't like it that much

Yeah, there wasn't much to the concept, but I think the repetitiveness of the fencing and the fog made for an awesome eerey atmosphere, and the feeling of impending doom as such. The openness of the maze without fixed walls also made the screams from other groups ahead and behind more audible and they filled the studio. Very simple concept, but worked well, IMO..

here is what I want to see for this year,

Resident Evil

Silent Hill

Texas Chainsaw 

Halloween,

maybe for one precincts this year it could be called be called The Flim Vault and have some of the characters like Freddy or Michael Myers roving in the area, just my thoughts 

also, having a Nightmare On Elm Street maze would be good as well, I'm fully aware they did this franchise already back in 2010, but this one can be themed to 1984's Nightmare On Elm Street

Yeah but at the same time, the suspense of there being something "just around the corner" gets boring fairly quickly.

I know they are changing they're makeup designs and going into prosthetics this year, and changing the consistency of the Blood, so it doesn't melt off!

Tbh I know there was a post with someone wanting American Horror Story but good luck. Considering licensing was hard to get on merchandise with Hotel this year, I doubt it could be included in an attraction like this.

If Gaga wasn't involved from now, it'd probably be a lot easier. :wacko:

Gaga doesn't own the licensing for the show, nor the likeness to her character in the show (not that excluding her character from a maze lineup would be noticed or detrimental). 

Whilst she would have a say in the licensing of her actual image for the show (merch etc) her presence in the series makes acquiring the AHS licence for the purpose of a maze no more problematic.

I would love to see a room in a maze similar to the one in Halloween at HHN where there a mirrors and multiple Michael Myers, some real, some fake. That would be awesome yet very scary.

Agree, that was one of the best bits of HHN Hollywood last year. I really enjoyed both their Michael Myers mazes, last year and 2009 (which had parts from all the films rather than the first like last year).

The doomsday area might loan itself well to a very gnarly scarezone, and I wish they's use that dead space behind lethal weapon in Chinatown. For a maze or a running-the-gauntlet-like scare zone.

They did a gauntlet type scare zone in there the very first year they had A Fright Night...  Before you were allowed to dress up, before the scare zones, before the mazes...  It was poorly done (in all fairness it was the first year) but was not over the top like the mazes are now so you were happy to walk through it, get a little scare, a bit uneasy, or laugh at the people you ran out screaming on your way to Lethal Weapon.

Hopefully they are going to start making their zombies look more like Universal's, I remember last year they didn't look scary at all..

 

I think a scare zone based on just horror movie icons would be fantastic!

You can't spend hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars on what is just essentially an extra. Some of the latex prosthetics can run to over $1000 for a mask. No way they would have the budget of the big overseas parks. I thought the character zombies were done well, skin looked corpse like and the congealed blood looked gooey and sticky. Made the wounds look pretty fresh and nasty.

Last year USH did an amazing walk through 'gauntlet' scare in the backlot. Basically you had to navigate the whole thing to get out and it was massive and scary as hell. 

They had other 'purge' areas you had to navigate in order to reach other mazes which basically put you face to face with actors trying to stop your progress. Was very effective.

Although it would make a 3rd consecutive year, another Wolf Creek one could be done but this time based on the series. For those who have watched it, episodes 4 and 6 come to mind (tunnels and final confrontation). Especially the chasing through the tunnels, they could make an actual elaborate maze (i think Arkham was done like this?) consisting of tunnels and you've got multiple Micks chasing you, with death around dead ends.

 

Another idea would be a well done 3D maze. The demons done in USH's This is the End maze were extremely well done, and the depth could only make it better. An idea i literally just thought of that could also be harnessed REALLY well in this situation, is colour projectors. So in 3D mazes for those that don't know, Chromadepth is used instead of stereoscope (red and blue glasses). Chromadepth separates colours based on their position in the colour spectrum, so red is close, green is mid, and blue is far away.

 

Say they had a green wall with a face projected onto it in different hues of blue, and then bam it changes to full colour (maybe even moving). So you're walking down a hallway and at the end is a blue patch as you get closer you can make out features and determine its a face, then when you're say 2-3 metres away it changes to a full proper face popping out of the wall, and all of a sudden you notice lightly defined hands protruding the walls at you as this face changes, the hands change to red. Cheap and overly effective jump scares, because lets face it psychological scares don't work in this situation.

Yeah ever since they've moved mazes out to the backlot they've used that corridor really well. They come from everywhere and really get in your face and they've got their cue from when another tram from the lower lot arrives rather than people randomly going through anytime - so they're all ready and waiting. And you ain't going back to the lower lot unless you go through. Definitely the best scare zone.

how did you get the photos above the walls last year? I'm thinking about using a selfie stick to see what's going on behind the walls

I used a selfie stick. A monopod or tripod would work but the selfie stick is easier and doesn't make you as obvious. I noticed they moved the machines around to stop people (well me) from getting close enough but still managed to get the shots

      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.

      I am heading to Movie World in a few weeks, and I am 160cm and 130kg carrying most on my bum and thighs. I know there will be some rides I won't fit on. But does anyone know which rides have tester seats before you join to line. To save me queuing up if I'm not going to fit.

      Operating Hours at Wet'n'Wild Gold Coast

      Monday - Wednesday the park will be closed.
      Thursday operating as it has normally during off-peak (10-3)
      Friday-Sunday normal operating hours.
      I will be surprised if they keep Wet n Wild open through Winter this year. It struggles through winter on a normal year, and during those years there's always plenty of debate on why it's open, I'm sure there's plenty more support for that debate this year. All I'll say on that debate is that you're extremely lucky if you get close to 1000 people (a day) through the gates, there are many days where 10% of that is hard to reach.
      Good weather days during the holidays are exceptions to the 1000 people rule, but they don't justify months of operation.

      Opening Hours - Plan your day at Sea World Gold Coast

      Warner Bros. Movie World Gold Coast operating hours

      I'm expecting that both Sea World and Movie World will reduce weekday operating hours through winter as well. Especially noting the conservative date ranges currently shown. (and once this happens, Dreamworld will obviously follow suit; if they don't announce it first)
      ---
      Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if COVID sees our parks completely adapt their operating schedules. Weekend operation of our main parks, Seasonal operation of the water parks. There are plenty of logistical issues with that, especially with contracted and salaried workforces. So it's not super likely to happen, but I can't say I don't see them moving closer to it.
      I know most of you are going to jump to "That doesn't make any sense, plenty of people still go to the parks during this time." As enthusiasts we have to understand that what we THINK makes sense, and what actually makes sense, are in many cases very different.
      Reducing hours means that you're increasing density of guests on the hours/days you're actually open, which means you're far better justifying the minimum number of staff you're required to have there anyway. Doesn't mean it'll feel any busier, especially without international tourists being here, and it goes without saying that a large majority of locals spend far less than interstate and international tourists, which is the part everyone seems to forget when talking about operating hours.
      this is all talking about off-peak, I'm not suggesting they'll change anything during the peak September-January season.
