Just an edit to above post, I have since been told by someone that was at the ride this morning as well and spoke to an attendant while the ride was down, that apparantly a bolt had either come loose

I find that most theme park enthusiasts are very heavy smokers.   

Want to ask if it's operating today? This is the place... no guarantees you'll get an answer though. If you are at Movie World and can report that it's running, delayed, temporarily closed, how l

And should it be re opened tomorrow morning at the membership early access thing?

You're asking should it? yes, of course they should have their $30million ride reopened in the morning.

Will it? It depends on what is broken, and how long it takes to fix.

I think youll be safe. Nothing is broken, dont know where the 25 mims came from. Power issues hit the whole park after 3. Pretty much every major ride went into e-stop because of it apparently. Usual case of resets and evacs as needed id expect. If something really was wrong, you'd probably see them working all night to get it sorted for tomorrow.

The issue with the power outage yesterday certainly didn't deter the crowds today. :)

Though the fast photo viewing area when exiting the ride was down. And I noticed that the reel for photo arm bands has been removed. 

When I went to the photo kiosk at the end of the day, I was informed that the photos were being taken from one of the trains only. They were having some sort of issue with the other.

Was at the park today. Queue around 10.30am this morning was over an hour.. however, there was an issue with the ride causing about a 25 minute delay, with multiple empty train cycles, before continuing as normal. Not sure what the fault was with the coaster.. 

I took a backwards seat ride around 3.00pm which was a walk on. Had another standard ride at 4pm which was less than a 15 minute wait. Think the heat of the day drew most of the crowd out of the park.

As a cool side note, I was given this lanyard when i entered the queue for the 4pm ride, to give to staff at the loading station, so they have an accurate queue time:

The guy behind me in single rider was on ride 66 and isn't going back to Victoria until he reaches 100 he said! 

Wow!! 66?? I’ve ridden it 68 times in total but that’s taken me quite a few visits since it’s first soft open day - and my early access helped bump my ride count up. Looks like I’ve got some competition! ;)

4 more rides on DC Rivals today. There was a film crew here around midday plus they ran a train for ‘VIP’s’ - no idea who they were though. 

Also, the right seat in row 9 was tagged out and not used as there seemed to be some issue with the seat belt. I was there when a maintenance guy came to have a look at it but they continued to keep it out of service until at least 2pm when I left the park.

      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.
