Movie World November 2017 Improvements

I could be wrong, but to me this looks like not only a bit of fun, but also an abstract reference to Daffy Duck, and possibly Tweety Pie (although that one's stretching it)!

Or perhaps I'm just too much of an artist!

The wristbands on the activities around DD have been replaced with these cards.

However, as at 12.30pm both the DD shop and the Scooby-Doo shop are closed!

Was green lantern still closed?

Yes, no signs of activity. AA is getting some new Signage over the entrance way. 

Superman was running really well post service. 

Rivals was good too, was extremely slow when empty in morning tests, by the afternoon was running very fast.

AA might be getting transferred over to the new train chassis.

Haven't we covered this ad nauseum already? Arkham isn't getting a new train or chassis.

The rolling stock from both the blue and red trains was cannibalised to make a 'purple' train in the days of lethal. They still maintain the bogeys and switch the hangers \ seats from one set to the other when its time for maintenance. i believe this speeds up the maintenance time as they can do all the axle and wheel assembly maintenance without keeping the whole ride offline.

Poison Ivy didn't have a card Wednesday. To me it looked like it was barricaded off anyway (or are those barriers always there?)

Chalk another one down for MW’s death spiral into non-existent customer service. 

Just got to park, only one turnstile open on a Saturday to get in, so line back last the ticket windows (so yes for the unfortunate day trippers you walk through after getting your ticket and then have to go back behind the ticket booth to line up and enter...). 

Couple of people with Prams go to the turnstile clearly marked “disabled and prams entry” only to be yelled at by security that those gates are no longer used and they must join the regular queue (hmm maybe take the sign down then...).

My son and I get to the front, our Membership cards don’t scan so we are informed “oh you too, these don’t seem to work anymore for anyone today - you need to go to the ticket booth inside near where the roof starts”.

I incorrectly went to the guest services and was told no, it was the little booth that usually sells up sells to OA etc. No one in line which I though was great I’ll get this sorted quickly and get on with my day. I walk up, the girl is busy playing on her phone (hiding it behind the pc monitor), Looks up at me as if I’ve just annoyed her and disrupted her snapchat time, I tell her I’ve been sent here to sort my passes out, and without any thought she sternly says “well you can’t do that here, my camera doesn’t work so go back to the front” and looks back down at her phone... 

 

seriously if it wasn’t for the fact my son loves coming here, I wouldn’t step foot in the place on recent experiences. It’s truly pathetic...

oh and the drink refills self-service no longer exist... both the food kiosk at entry and at Gotham burgers are now closed and shuttered up. You must line up and be served a drink. Making the already excessive queues at Gotham ridiculous and at the entry 

movie world has gone to shit. Rant over.

I know it's the quiter time of year now, but this all flies in the face of the promises were given just a few months ago about better service and everything being open the whole time the park is.

Looked good for a short time, but you have to be consistent.

Well that’s good. 

Conversely, friendly staff at Dreamworld.

I was at movie world this morning and they had three gates open? Got a “Disney Welcome” to. Hello (name), hope you have an awsome day! The people at the up sales desk were great as well? Only bad this was everything was breaking down so we moved onto Dreamworld.

Lucky you... I’ve never had a Disney welcome in my life at MW, I went in at midday, when I left at 1pm was still only 1 person in and line was still to the ticket booths. 

MW have told me they are striving for excellence in customer service... at this point I’d accept a moderate level...

I wouldn’t say I’ve had a Disney welcome, but over the past couple years I’ve had a pass, I’ve only had a hello (name) have a great day a couple of times. Most of the time they just make eye contact and scan the pass, or are talking to the person next to them
