Aussie World’s SX360 Eventual Opening

29 posts in this topic

I came across a question and response on Facebook in regards to the SX360 opening. Had to laugh that they went with “that line” but glad they went on to expand on it:

Their response tells me absolutely nothing. It's just a standard response used by many businesses on social media when there's either no information to provide, or there is but the person responding doesn't know it or isn't allowed to share it.

That is very funny for soooo many reasons. 

It also appears that this post has been removed from the page as well. Interesting!!

Thanks for posting!!

Given some of the recent changes within the industry, I don't see this as a major issue. I mean look at SV. It's been delayed due to pretty much the same issues. 

So we can stop putting the blame on Dreamworld for not opening it on time? Also, did DC Rivals have to go through this new process when it opened or is this in relation to the new amusement laws that have come into place only this year?

People will obviously want to blame DW but the changes have the regulations have changed during that rides construction. Same here for Aussie World. These changes have occurred at a time that is unfortunate for the parks. Due to the transition in the regulations.

Rivals did not have to go through this new process. It was lucky. But SeaWorld's new ride line up will go through it. In fact, any new rides in the future in QLD will go through these processes, unfortunately.

Absolutely not. This is 100% DW's fault.

you'll find over time it becomes much more strict. Personally, I see it as a good thing. Other states will role this stuff out within due time.

We're also hearing of it a lot more in QLD because that's the main epicentre for theme parks and rides in the country.

100%. Plus given the circumstances as to why all those changes occurred. I mean some people have a fear of rides in QLD.

Back on track. This will be a nice little addition to aussie world.

Just to add a little further to the discussion, Aussie World still are not releasing the opening date for the SX360.  The impending arrival of the new spinning Wild Mouse coaster is at hand but this will not open until next year- when next year is open to conjecture. Are they anticipating delays before this is even built perhaps?

It's a good thing, but when they go too hard on people who are being 150% compliant, its a bit ridiculous.

Rules are rules. Heck, I've raced cars semi-professionally. But still, I had to sit the same driving test as everyone else. It's good for the theme park/amusement park industry that these new standards exist. It helps build industry confidence again.

Never said anybody is disregarding these rules because they are safe. You just have to look at it in a way where many of these people who work doing safety audits are not around amusement rides every day, that goes for parks and travelling machines. Just how it is I guess.

I get how people look at this and can be like "they don't work with the rides they don't know what they do". Essentially a ride is classified as heavy plant machinery. So with some engineering drawings, an engineer (like these specialist are) can easily assume and ascertain if the plant equipment is indeed doing what it is designed for.

The issue is not enough "inspectors" exist currently. But over time this will be built up meaning a new ride coming on the scene in a few years time shouldn't have as many delays assay today.

I agree that it hasn't been executed properly but like I already mentioned give it time and things will get better.

Yeah, but considering the new laws were brought in during/after the planning/construction phases of this ride (and SV), you would like to think the State Government would be working with the parks to help them strike between the shifted goalposts, especially Aussie World, you are an innocent party in the whole thing. I have less sympathy for Dreamworld, who have created this whole shitfight.

Yeah I totally agree, I think these people need to work more with operators and owners instead of going against them and being harsh because of a stigma.

Why shift the goal post for one company?. I'm sorry that's just crap. You have a road rule change and it's not like the state government does a rollout based on when people got their license. I am happy no company has received special treatment. Imagine what other companies would think or even the public then.

Youll find the regulators are working with the parks. Things take time.

There are many examples of new government legislation and regulations that have transition phases. I think that's all Strop was advocating.

Obviously, I don't know all the details of the new code. But it is kinda obvious that's where some of the issues have stemmed from. When you look at this case they started building. Got the job done then it seemed issues have arisen due to changes in the code. I am sure someone here would be much closer to the situation than myself.

Sure the signing of the process can take a while (I have witnessed this first hand in this industry) but I think the changes in the code really hit DW at a bad time. Same goes here for AW.
