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

Given Dreamworld's clever signs reminding the guest of a ride closure due to maintenance (see below image), how do we think they'll advertise their temporary closure of Steel Taipan?

A short 5 minute brainstorm led me to the following:

I'd have loved to have seen a 'scale' texture on the path - but probably a pretty tricky one to pull off well.

It’s all @DaptoFunlandGuy fault 😂 You shouldn’t have said you’d love to see a scale texture. 
 

But you were definitely right that it would be hard to pull off well

I mean - maybe I asked for this so I can't really complain. I can see what they were going for but the template edges have been done as straight lines so you can see the square borders too and that makes it look horrible. I want to hope this is a 'work in progress' and it isn't finished yet, but it looks like they've cleaned up so i'd say that's it. I don't know - at least they tried?

On a brighter note though - After thinking we were going to get plain black cyclone fencing, I want to say that the white\grey school fencing is a much nicer look.

I said TEXTURE! TEXTURE! Not painted dots!

texture is the perceived surface quality of a work of art. It is an element of two-dimensional and three-dimensional designs and is distinguished by its perceived visual and physical properties.

If not done on the ground, perhaps they could hire an art firm like Balarinji or a First Nations Artist to cover the wall (or most of it) of Sky Voyager?

Qantas have worked closely with Balarinji numerous times for its "Flying Art" series and it would be nice to see someone use the large canvas at Dreamworld too...

I'd love a mixture of this and a vertical garden, especially when it comes to hiding the Sky Voyager plant area.
