No post mix machines behind the counter, they were removed when the self service machines were put in at Gotham.

This is incorrect.

Sweet Treats and Gotham have Post-mix guns. All outlets are capable of doing refills of post-mix excluding Village Bean and the Frozen Coke stand. (News Stand can do refills when the refill station isn't open too)

It's about time they stopped offering soft drinks full stop. Absolutely terrible for guests health yet they encourage everyone notonly to drink it,  but to drink far more than could be considered acceptable (sort of) as an occasional "treat".

 

That’s ridiculous. Adults can choose what they want to put in their bodies, and as parents choose for their kids. Guess they should ban beer, burgers, hot chips etc as well. 

If people can’t use self control and moderate their intake, or hell, if they choose to drink soft drink all day every day, that’s their perogative.

I don't have a problem with them selling soft drink. What I do have a problem with though, is the bottomless soft drink cups. I think it is very irresponsible and they need to stop selling them.

That's kind of my point really. You put it better than I did!

Guest should be allowed to drink the soft drink straight from the tap.  Better for the environment, no cups required and Village could save a penny on cups.

Would ask why you can't just buy a season long refill cup but that would stop the crazily overpriced reactivation fee if you wanted to use it a second day. For those complaining about soft drink you're not being forced to buy it and heaps of people choose it. I don't drink soft drink at Dreamworld but that's because the only options there are water or beer.

There’s no problem about bottomless soft drinks. Part of being a responsible parent is being able to moderate the crap your kids invest against the exercise they have. And learning to actually use that so forbidden of words: “NO”

Isnt the point of the stations is they dont need to be manned? How do you save money by closing them?

Weve had this discussion about soft drinks and health before. If you single them out as a problem you are a hypocrit if you dont also demand fruit juices, milks and iced teas removed from sale too as they frequently exceed the calories of soft drink and often contain vastly more sugar.

Only reason I can think of that is somewhat logical is they are willing to wear the cost of all the “stolen” drinks when the park is buzzing and they are making a mint from in-park spend, but not so much when it’s quiet.

I've seen how much post-mix soft drink syrups cost. Trust me, they wouldn't be losing anything significant!

      I understand that this has been added to their website around the last week or two but just thought I'd leave them here.

      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.
