Looks like the green room is getting some serious work done to it. Similar work that is being done down the road at WnW. The painting is the easy part. I wonder how much bracing is being repaired and replaced. I know some at WnW was. I think Proslide might be in the country also.

How so?
They installed safety fences at a rail crossing, they are actively repainting their rides and performing maintenance on their water rides during this winter and they left a sticker on the ground from an event that technically ended a few days ago, but it's still technically winter, so the photo ops are at least still relevant

100% right @Jdude95. I mean they are doing annual maintenance. It's a part of life unfortunately. I know @AlexB and I discussed this either in this thread or elsewhere. It makes sense to do the maintenance during the cooler periods where not many if any guest turn up. Also means they save on staffing cost. Essentially it is actually a win for the park. Save on wages, gets important maintenance done.

Just realised the Tot2 store has been removed from the list of shopping outlets on the park map. It was still on the most previous version.

Movie world did the same with superman, maybe with Scooby doo. Saving money as not many people buy Souvenirs just after riding a ride

^Yeah, look.... "citation needed" - but there's a reason Disney always exits you through a gift shop, and that's also the reason why many of our parks have shops at exits. Its a proven formula.

Low attendance and low revenues put pressure on department heads to cut costs, and saving on staffing by having less shops open is a no-brainer - but that doesn't mean those shops don't make money when they're open.

As for superman, it was always a stupid idea to exit through a gift shop when you don't permit loose articles... unless you come back through the locker room first. stupid design decried from day one.

yes, can't find a spot inside the park that's accessible for a picture at the moment. was here yesterday too and no work was being done on it. 

You'll definitely be able to see it from the car park. :) If you see anything, be sure to snap a pic - would be a shame to see it go but it does open up a huge corridor for Dreamworld to use.

You might also be able to see a bit from the train.

it was actually a lot harder than i expected to find a spot to photograph. the fences and the trees dont help!

train wasnt running today so I couldnt use that.

alright so let me explain these photos for a second.

this photo is the "office" area as far as i'm aware.

this is the main amphitheatre which I couldn't get a proper picture of. best view of what's happening is on GD at the moment. a digger was ripping chunks off when I saw it earlier.

Hopefully the new roller coaster is going to be part of the TRRR site and extend out to where the amphitheatre is, if so we are in for a major roller coaster. Crossing fingers 🤞although they did state $20 million where rivals was $30 million but I think you can still achieve a decent coaster for $20million.

Although I think the first priority before building or announcing any other ride is to get the long awaited Sky Voyager open I can't get over the latest article that Dreamworld are still finding it complicated to comply with new laws. Surely the manufacturer knows how to comply with the Australian Standards otherwise they shouldn't be building in Australia essentially.
