Rides shut at dreamworld today: 

- Motorcoaster

- Tower of terror

- Wipeout

- Dreamworld Express

- Log Ride

-  Shockwave

- Play School Wheel

Was this due to severe weather?

 

Motorcoaster, tower of terror, shockwave always close when it rains due to their systems. And normally the tails spin, claw and wipeout will close in the heavier rain, and then everything else will close when it’s torrential rain.

Quite strange that The Claw, Giant Drop and Tailspin were not closed if this was due to weather.

These ones don't usually close because of weather. 

 

Gennerally they close in torrential rain because claw feels like millions of needles stabbing you and tailspin close because the speed certain thrill seekers go on the ride.

Yes, however Gold Coast didn't face the brunt of the storm. Hence why they probably didn't close. They have to give park guests SOMETHING to do, right?

Hi guys, quick report from MW today, 25/2

Known downtime with invasion, Batwing and wild west, unfortunately add Superman to that list so far. Only midday, but it's been closed since the park opened.  Fingers crossed they'll get it going.

Jetstreams removed from maintenance page however are still mentioned on the website.

Match 5 has been changed on the maintenance page to “until further notice”. 

Lazy river is now closed for more than 4 months. Along with River Rapids for 5 months.

Not a good year for WetNWild.

Jet Streams have been closed since about October last year, but only recently the whole tower closed. The shade sail has been removed from the tower too.

Lazy river is always closed for that long because of the quieter winter period, and the river rapids must just be getting a very thorough maintenance period.

Wouldn't say it a bad year, just general park maintenance that has to happen.

@Roachie dont think anyone really knows. The Jetstreams have been closed since about October, and about mid January, the Sidewinders closed too. Then about 2 weeks ago the shade sail was removed. But I havent seen any other work happen on it, and I drive past it nearly everyday.

Maybe they are having issues with the waterpumps (That's just a guess, I've got no idea)

I was at movie world 2 weeks ago and no water at all, full of leaves and didn’t look like it was ever going to reopen but I guess it will after what’s it been 9 or 10 months. Will be great to have this family ride back

The western side of the Giant Drop has been in testing the last couple of days and is currently sitting at the top of the tower, so it seems that they have resolved the issue they were having with the cables.

The "Catch Car" at the top is been used as a platform to stand on whilst the works on the cables are undertaken.

Website says TOT is back open. This is early (has dreamworld gone crazy?).  

A friend told me today that ardient really does understand the fate of their theme park - as Dreamworld for whatever reason was playing the song “Dreamworld” by Midnight Oil throughout the park today...
