good they should get rid of this old boring ride and put something more new and exciting in it's place.

What sort of ride can you buy for the couple million they saved?  Anything that you know will be as big a hit as the flume ride?  Certainly nothing as big as the flume, probably nothing as family  fri

Think its about time that they seriously think about relocating Surfrider to Seaworld, as per the original  plan. Its compact, and its a great fit for the park as a spiritual succesor to the Pirate Sh

How high is the chance that VRTP's major announcement could be bigger than we thought, and include Sea World?

It's possible. When looking back at SE's construction, SE was first formally announced to the media within a larger announcement about expansions at all VRTP tourist attractions. SE's major media announcement that was dedicated just to SE didn't occur until 4 days prior to opening. Looking at the timetable I put in the '2017 Movie World roller coaster' topic, such an expansions announcement might occur in early June 2017 (though it's highly likely such an announcement could be held prior in a different time period).

How is it unlikely? 

I'm interested to know how some people on here know the fate of certain rides based on little more than their own assumption?

If I were to listen to educated guesses then I would only be paying attention to the comments of a handful on here. Maybe start by reading what @Richard has had to say on the subject of home grown/in house rides?

In the case of the Flume ride, I would say SW will do absolutely everything feasible to keep the ride. If it is however found that repair cost is greater than that of a superior replacement then logic would suggest it's days are to numbered. Personally, I do not believe that to be the case.

So ive never told this story here but when my mum and dad took myself and my little bro to Seaworld/Nara Resort for 3 days back in 2001. While mum waited with my little bro in the pram, dad took me on the Vikings Revenge Flume. At the loading dock, something happened which caused the boat dad and i were in to immediately dispatch right after the boat in front and then an empty boat behind us immediately dispatched as well so the three boats were hitting each other through the channels. Dad started freaking out as the boats got to the conveyor hill as he thought something bad might happen on the way down (capsize, crash, i dunno what) so he jumped off the side on the way up and i remember being totally distressed while he tried to help me off. I think we just waited there for a while because we didnt know what to do/where to go and then they shut down the ride and one of the ride attendants came running up to us and was really angry because we had apparently made them shut down the ride and when dad tried to explain that he was worried about what would happen going downhill, the attendant told us that there was a safety mechanism at the top of the hill that stopped the boats and only let one down at a time. So that was my experience on the Vikings Revenge, lol.

Honestly though, in response to your post @POP...  Yeah with a young kid I would definitely be worried if something like that happened...  You would think though that staff would have stopped the ride so you stopped at the lift hill as a precaution...  If one thing failed (like the release of so many boats already) and no safety system kicked in at the next available point (the start of the lift hill) you would be hesitant to believe that the next safety precaution would kick in properly...  Especially if you had no detailed knowledge of how the ride system works...

Pretty much lol, and dad already HATED going on rides and i do believe this was the last ride he ever went on.

^Yeah, that's what I thought happened on Viking's Revenge - a whole bunch get dispatched at once then they separate before the lift hill.

Typical dad moment, though. A friend of mine was on Transformers at USS with his family and completely flipped out when the ride came to a stop just beyond the station.

No actually they didn't seperate at the lift hill they were still almost on top of each other. That's what dad decided to abandon the ride. We were told that the boats get stopped at the top of the drop.

      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.

      I thought I'd start a seperate forum for Leviathan specific construction updates, so that we can easily follow the coaster in one place.
      This was my first time seeing the vertical construction progress, so I took my big camera lens to the park to get some close up shot of the construction
      Overview:




      Close ups:





      Despite the coaster not yet reaching it max height, it can already be seen for a lot of different points across the park

      I just thought of marking a place for us to share stories from Theme parks whether they’re insane, scary or happy share them here. Here’s one from theme parks me I remember going into hot wheels sidewinder just to look at the queue because I was too scared to go on it


      Don’t know what’s going on with the photos so just try your best to ignore it thanks
