I'm going as general admission with fast track tomorrow night, also going next Saturday for my birthday on the UTT, how do you get into the secret rooms?

Through the fast track queue...  Walk past anyone else in the line, show your UTT pass to the attendant and tell them you want to go into the Terror Room...

 

Except with C2 is it on the left as you walk in the queue...

You'll hear plenty of "wtf are you doing?" and "what's going on"

as you come out you'll get a few "ha! you had to go to the back of the line". 

I got a lot of...  "Was it too scary for you"...  So then decided to walk back in and freaked that person out as they walked through :P  or tell them...  I'm on the Ultimate tour so was looking behind the scenes...

I just said loudly with authority "Excuse me guys coming through"...  Once you get to the front and the attendant lets you walk straight in and you go into an area the other guests can't enter they sort of figure it's something else...

I went to tonights FN, and had a great night, and surprisingly wasn't as sacred as what I have been in previous years. But I do have a mixture of positive and negatives from tonight.

Didn't arrive at the park until 5:45, and had no issues getting in, and quickly made our way up to the front of Main Street. Thought the opening act for the beginning of the event was pretty good, bit different from previous years with starting with the guitarist. From there we headed through the Apparitions Precinct, which despite being only a small area, was really well done and the two guys were providing plenty of scares. Probably my favourite precinct, shame they didn't use the whole alley way, or spreader into the AA courtyard, that would've really added to it. From there we headed to the Dusk till Dawn Maze.

Dusk till Dawn Maze: The queue was only about 15 minutes, as we were one of the first to get to it, and it did seem for most of the night this queue was relatively short. Having not seen the show, I didn't really know what to expect, and I did think the maze was rather underwhelming. Most of the scare actors were there in view and just walked back and forth. Despite there being a number of good spots that couldn't been used to their advantage. And it did seem relatively short too. Unfortunately this was my least favourite maze of the night. 5/10

We then headed for Friday the 13th. I will make one comment here, that it was great to see MW using more of the park for this FN. Using the WWF space and having two ways to get to the mazes out the back made the flow through the park much better.

Friday the 13th Maze: The queue was about 25 minutes for this maze. This for me was one of the scariest mazes I've been through at FN last year, and was one of my all time favourites. This year however it fell a little flat for me. All of the major scenes were still there, but they all felt too shortened. From remembrance, the cave scene with Jason charging towards you. But this year it just didn't have the same impact. The maze was still well put together, and had some great scenes, but was a little disappointed. 7/10

Conjuring 2: This was the maze I was most nervous about going through, as I expected it to have some big scares in it, and I was right. This was the longest queue, being about 45 minutes, and it just seemed to keep going. I thought as soon as you entered the sound stage you'd start the maze, but nope, you walk to the other side. But that provided a pretty good build up, with the news reporter over the speakers, and the posters. And throughout the whole time queued in there it was non-stop screaming from inside the maze. There were really great scenes in the maze, one of the most memorable wad the kitchen scene, really well done and quite intense. The scare actors were great and hid in some really good spots, such as the one who's above you. The sounds really added to it, making it a great maze. 9/10.

We rode SDSC, and then passed by the Gothic Hall precinct, which never had anyone actually performing on it, except one time, for about 5 minutes. The rest of the time it was just pre-recorded music. I remember last year always seeing performers there. We then went down Main Street, passing the Day of the Dead precinct, which wasn't anything special to be honest. From what I saw there was probably only about a dozen scare actors in the whole of Main Street, which was rather disappointing, as I remember there always being tonnes, and the smoke was really thick, and it was much darker so people got some really good scares, but there wasn't really that this year. The guys with the chainsaws are always great, as well as the ones with the knives. I wish they had the guys that would slide around on the ground again. And passing through the Halloween precinct, which was also fairly disappointing. Last year the Zombieland he precinct went all around the fountain and it was great. But this year it was just on the grassed areas.

We made our way to the final maze, Wyrmwood. I'll also add here that the panic rooms were running tonight. It was a shame that there weren't scare actors in the fenced alley up the back to mazes, as they always used to get some great scares in the 'Zombie Alley' to the sound stages.

Wyrmwood Maze: We queued for about 30 minutes for this maze, and wow what an improvement on last year. This maze was great, and had so many good scares. That strobe lighting flashing at the start really messed with you, but really added to it. All the scenes were really good, and the scare actors did really well and provided some great scares. Especially in that last scene. I think something they could add, as there are a cars in a couple of scenes, is have their horns go off, like the scene in the Wolf Creek 2 maze, to me that would just add that something extra, and provide a good scare. 9/10

There were a few disappointments this year, but as always you can see how much effort the park and designers put into the mazes, but some things fell a little flat. I don't know if its because of the construction throughout the park, or delays with maze/precinct designs. What they did well, was really great, and really added to the night. But those few things, mainly lack of scare actors in some areas, was a shame. But I still highly recommend that anyone who's gone in the past to go, and hopefully some minor things are sorted for the remaining nights. Overall I'd give the night a 7.5/10

Hi, I rearly comment but I brought my ticket on Groupon, it's not working. It's said processing for 3 days. My last option is the unlimited entry ticket, how does it work. Do you just go to the gate and scan? do you get a pass or paper ticket? 

Hi, why don't you just wait the three days for the Groupon ticket? Tonight's event is fully booked out anyway, so either way you will have to wait until next Friday at the earliest to use it.

They were there doing it last night as well. 

When I first entered MW last night, one of them slid up to me, expecting me to be like everyone else jump out of the way in fear. I didn't. Which ended in him subtly crashing into my leg and a bunch of nearby people laughing.

Awkward moment, haha.

Oh I didn't see them the couple of times I went down Main Street. Well it's good to know they're still there.

And also, was really surprised how quick we got out of the carpark too. We were leaving at the same time as a lot of others were, and it only took a couple of minutes to get out.

Atmosphere looked great in that video! 

 

Anyone else agree that movie world should upload the mazes to their YouTube channel in HD once they know they won't return? I always feel like it's such a wasted opportunity. I would love to look back on previous mazes like Saw, nightmare on elm street, arkham asylum, evil dead, wolf creek etc but there is no good footage of them to be found online! They should definetely do that from F13 and wrymwood this year as we know they won't be returning.. Just a thought :rolleyes:

Purely a guess, but I'd say there's licensing issues preventing them from doing so.

Was funny last night, a bunch of young teenagers were in that room trying to console the girl, hanging out with her and trying to provide her with their own means of councilling, hahaha.

They weren't scared in the slightest, if anything they were just entertained. The whole room was full of people at one stage. 

Meanwhile Michael Myers was outside,  staring people down face to face as they tried to get photos with him.

I honestly think people that go to fright nights and go out of their way to show how not scared they are and act too cool for school and brag about it are just losers. 

Why go? It's just ruining the fun for everyone else. 

Yay you didn't get scared mr/miss cool how friken sad for you.

I'll go ahead and give my review as well on this years Fright Night. I will say that the last two years (1st time going was 2014) have been better IMO, however it was still a great night and definitely worth going. 

The reasons why I thought this year was weaker than the previous was:

1. Mazes were shorter.

2. It felt like there were less actors in the mazes & roaming around. 

3. FDTD was very weak. 

In saying that, I think the real reason this year has been a step down is because they couldn't use the soundstages, but there was nothing they could really do to stop that which is unfortunate. 

I will say my thoughts on my favourite maze which was with no doubt, Conjuring 2. This maze was amazing! Well themed with great scares. My favourite rooms were the kitchen & the bedroom. Oh boy! That bedroom scene really messed with my head! Amazing! I unfortunately didn't get the ceiling scare, however I did see it. Would someone please tell me what happens with it? I would have loved to have seen this maze in one of the soundstages with bigger sets & a longer maze. 

To sum up I thought it was still a great night, even with the shorter mazes. From what they had to work with I think they did a great job. Definitely worth it :) Think I might have to try the UTT next year ;)

      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.
