Dreamworld December Update 2019

125 posts in this topic

The pre-existing rolling gate is still there which shuts off the pathway. Likewise the fencing looks to be of a gate like construction, so in events where the train is not running, it can be closed off so it stops people from exploring.

I remember a time when gates weren’t needed, people obeyed the footpaths. Those times are sadly no more.

It is frustrating when staff are inefficient when loading just because the queue is small. I recall a year ago when staff would frequently load TOT once every 10 or so minutes just because the queue was only a few cycles long. You would hear them talking in the operating room while guests are waiting to be loaded. 
Safe to say since the change in management, I haven’t seen this behaviour in staff anymore.

Mr Yong sure knows how to operate a themepark looking back at previous management I think Dreamworld would've been screwed forever. 

No slide refurbishments

No new rides 

No new foot paths 

No renovations to the park 

No night time events 

No holiday events 

No nothing FULL STOP

From all reports, Greg is a good guy, but he is also the COO, and a very hands on COO at that. I’d say the change in operations (ie increase in efficiency) is certainly related to the management shuffle, which saw Mr Yong get given a spot at the top. The place has had a major management clear out, and with said clear out comes new methods and ideas. Ironic that for the first time in what seems like 2 centuries Dreamworld is being congratulated for its operations, where as the joint down the road is being laughed at... yes this is all a dream right?

The fact that 2 trains are operating is a good thing right.  Sounds like consumer confidence may be returning to DreamWorld.  What are the crowds like at the moment?

Anyone know how long ago they used two trains on MDMC? The time I only remember was when the ride first opened.

The upside of 2 train operations, the park is finally busy enough to warrant the second train again.

Although @Brad2912 said the queue wasn’t long. Also, when I’ve been at Dreamworld these holidays, the crowds haven’t been impressive. It’s been rather quiet, WWW is doing well though.

Saw it being used today. Ironically the Bridgeway is still open, and saw people still using it as well. 
 

Honestly, the path looks like a pathway for maintenance rather than a pathway that leads you on an exciting adventure.

Geh the complaints coming through that the Ferris wheel is so hot firing summer needs air conditioning

I’ve worked out you probably meant during* but the suggestion of air conditioning is stupid. 

Steel ride with Perspex windows gets hot in summer, surprise!

I did some looking into your statement, one person commented saying it was ‘like a rotisserie oven on hot days’ and someone else replied saying that the whole of the park is hot (which I agree with). Because of all that concrete and lack of trees/shading does make that whole area hot, so hopefully during the return/expansion they resolve that issue.

But in regards to your post ‘geh the complaints coming through’. I would say complaints and there was one person. One person. Who said it was hot. I definitely would say complaints are coming through. And no one mentioned air con. To resolve the issue, they just got to remove the Perspex. The ride already has bars, so no one can get through anyways. That simple.

Hoping if/when the Log Ride returns it's 1) got rid of the crazy "Flintstones" look, in all the time they had it closed, over the last few years and if they're really committed to a high quality product offering - go get some new log boats, with a purpose built COMFORTABLE lap restrain or similar and 2) Get some Quality THEMING happening...bring back the caves etc..... 🤫
