This morning I was invited out to Dreamworld to get a sneak peek of Steel Taipan and a walk through of the entire area. I’ll start out by saying, overall they’ve done a good job with the area. It’s ve

Occasionally I'll search through tender websites for theme park projects and yesterday's search at work had delivered some treasure. Here is what is worth noting: This is what the queu

*sigh. so sick of all these thoosie pages uploading a copy of the video with their own text or logo over the top without so much as even attributing the original source making it look like its "their vid". At least OurWorlds includes attribution.

Well... I guess we all know what that last rock mesh was for...

*Shots fired at Movie World lol.

Huh?

And this is why I said “I would have waiting” because that other awful video is out running around now and this one so much better! 
I hate that it’s barreling around a construction site but can’t have hype and a finished ride at the same time. 
 

Glad they put this out there.

The 4K version is up.

A million, kajillion times better. Now that we've got a solid POV, can we confirm the rumour that this is running quicker than the OG Blue Fire in Germany?

I've seen some photos of it and the orange is just stunning against the blue sky. Also really keen to see it with the zero car on the front - the trains already look sexy AF.

Did they let you in to record this one?

Yes it is running faster but I wouldn't put my house on it that it will be running at this speed when it opens.  Rivals ran faster during early testing before they installed the trim brakes.

Here's an update from this afternoon. ST was testing frequently so was able to get some decent footage!

Another angle of the sign; looks like the rockwork is shaped so you can sit underneath it:

Inspired by a certain other coaster's signage perhaps?

Soo…

We’ve all seen the POV now… What’s up with the launch having no build up or visibility?

Buzzsaw getting cleared may open up a potential viewing area of the launch. I'd also like to see some audio tied to it, similar to what they're doing with the Road Runner Refurb.

This is the modern entrance sign is going next to Sky Voyager in Main Street.

That rock seat would most definitely be the instagram feature to Taipan (as shown in the tender).

Also, is it unlikely we'll see the construction of the entrance signage seen in the first tender image?

After watching the first 25 seconds of @OgreMagic's video, it appears they do sound a horn before a test run...

Soo.... maybe you have the skills to create a side by side comparisons between the German model and Aussie model from the start of the first element.👍😉

We’ll see how boring my weekend is and go from there. 🥲
