DC Rivals HyperCoaster - soft open discussion

See I disagree with this Single Rider practice. 

Single rider is a gamble, you don't get to get on every cycle, that's what the main que is for. 

Sure if no SR seats come up in a few cycles let a couple on, and then back to waiting. That's kinda Disney practice. 

Just "DC Rivals HyperCoaster Discussion"? not in Soft open now but still good to discuss.

 

Also completely agree with your view on single riders. When I was there a few weeks back one guy was letting 2 single riders through (apart from when a kid spilt his drink on the seat and they had to clean it / cycle it through for a blow dry) but when I came back to go backwards the attendant was only letting them on for single seats.

Yep going to add an excerpt and some photos you guys might enjoy. If you want to read the rest of my ramblings and swearing, you can go to that other place with the things.

WOW.  I rode in the 4th row & all I can say is HOLY #%$! The Airtime, the speed, the first drop. Omg. This ride is WORLD CLASS!!! Here is my experience of the ride.  - The lift hill

This review and experience is purely based on the soft opening on 16 September 2017. (No photos as there's plenty of time for those later)   Front Row: While the back row is great, and more

I don't disagree with this either - however being a gamble that it is, i'd also like to see them admit SRQ to a backwards row when the noone is there for the upcharge - not as a matter of course, but on an occasional run if there hasn't been a SR needed for a few cycles - and those who receive it should feel lucky - rather than sulk if it's not given to them.

but of course everyone who doesn't get backwards for free will then whine about the person that does, and this is why we can't have nice things.

I wonder if the back row is a success as an upcharge?  I’ve noticed many times, including when MW are only running one train the backrow is empty.   The backrow is awesome and is defiantly worth it but how many people have re-ridden it?  I would like MW to tweak the experience too your guaranteed to ride it once but if within your time slot there is available empty runs you can queue up again to re-ride.  This way the train is always full.  I wouldn’t advertise it but would tell guest as they got off that they can queue up and have another ride.

I got to ride DC Rivals this past weekend for the first time. First ride was at the front. Loved the experience. The 1st drop was the best just plummeting down. Second ride was in the middle. Still a great ride. I then paid for the backwards seat just to try it. Was a completely different experience and not one I enjoyed. I actually felt really sick once on the non inverted loop. 

Glad I got to try it but not for me. Prefer to face forward. 

Overall such an amazing addition. Really loved it

Really good idea, my only problem with this ride is that there were no good places to watch it from inside the park.

Also a bit annoying how most of the layout after the drop and first airtime hill isn't visible from the queue line. Trees get in the way from the indoor part of the queue. Maybe the trees are there for another reason, like sun protection or something, but I'd really love being able to see the ride from there.

      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.
