184 posts in this topic

Hopefully parts turn up soon if they hope to have it opened by Boxing Day. With construction yet to start and then ride testing to still be done

Wouldn’t say November is very wet on the GC. 

Average rainfall/rain days data show it to be the 7th wettest month of the year. 

Despite that though, most rainfall and rain days in November are afternoon & evening storms so will have little effect on construction timelines. 

The issue will be if there is a construction company physically on hand to build the thing

Disagree.

Storms tend to bring intense rainfall. It makes site prep, and concreting incredibly difficult. Once the foundations and concreting is done, sure, afternoon storms shouldn't delay much, but we're not there yet...

Did someone say delays...If a construction company pulled out surely a breach of contract which would come at a cost unless there was some sought of a termination clause which could include quote variations or regulation requirements etc etc .

Let hope this doesn’t affect our wooden coaster Leviathan from opening December 2020 cause you would expect construction do start January at the latest with a complex build to take 6-9 months to complete build depending if everything match’s up correctly and go to plan

Can someone translate this into English? Google Translate wasn't helpful.

@Whombex here you go

“Lets hope this doesn’t effect the wooden coaster, Leviathan from opening in December 2020. I would expect construction to start in January at the latest, with it being such a complex build. It’s probably going to take 6-9 months for the build to be completed, depending on everything lining up correctly and it goes all to plan”

Thinking waaay back to when Wipeout was built, DW started levelling the area as late as September and still had no trouble opening it well in time for the busy Xmas season.

I know that was a long time ago, but remember (like Wipeout) this is an otherwise transportable pre-fabricated mid-way ride. The biggest part of it's construction is getting the site ready (level, footings placed,  electrical wiring, landscaping etc). Once all is properly prepared you can expect the ride system itself will get slapped up practically overnight.

I'm not disagreeing with you, but one thing to keep in mind is that Sea World's ground preparation will likely take a lot longer than Dreamworld, due to the nature of the shallow water table, and sandy soils.

Absolutely @AlexB the area for the ride footprint appears to have been widened significantly.

Having not visited SW for a while, can someone confirm if the land has been reclaimed north into the Dolphin Lagoon or South into the Ski Lake?
