Thanks for the great and frequent updates Richard. Just a couple of questions for you - Do you know what the big hole in the centre is going to be for? Do you think the new attraction will be considered part of Ocean Parade or Main Street? The area which has been cleared is quite a substantial size. On another note, I have noticed (from all recent pics) that Dreamworld is looking really good overall. Lots of extra theming and plenty of bright, fresh paint

Richard I have a feeling you are being cautious about what you say regarding the new attraction. Is that why you haven't really answered my questions? Do you have a few secret details and ride specifics up your sleeve or are you just not wanting to speculate too much?

Have a look at the Mondial website and their version of the ride. It has a large square platform the lowers as the ride starts and rises when the ride stops. Have a look at the video on the site and you will see what I mean. I haven't seen any video of an Intamin one so I’m not sure how the platform works, but what I can see from the picture on the website it looks like the whole platform drops down too. "The Bus is now leaving for Yeo Yeo Platform, NSW"

Hey guys I just got an email from a contact in management informing me that the ride will actually be what was formally known as "Bounty's Revenge" at WL which is being relocated and named Gyro Swing... Guess we had all been led down the garden path a bit on this one :-(

You really think so? I did at first too, thought someone was having a lend but I'm afraid not. No one said it was a Gyro Swing model, just it was Gyro Swing and Bounty is/was a ride trade manufatured product...
