I thought I'd start a seperate forum for Leviathan specific construction updates, so that we can easily follow the coaster in one place. This was my first time seeing the vertical construction pr

Forgot to upload these after visiting Sunday. 

Howdy folks - here's the latest nearmap overview taken last weekend - 6 days old and hot off the presses!

Looks like we can see some of the queue in there

Was looking at the model photos again and looks like you won’t necessarily queue through this part (unless the ride has a very long wait time. But most of the queue will be in the building itself and this area is more the entry to the ride. The opening that we’ve seen is definitely the attraction entry. There is also the two paths that wrap around Trident, one that goes under the coaster track near the lake. Based off the nearmap image, it appears that will still be the case.

construction really seems to have slowed, still people on site each day but mainly laying the track which looks to be mostly completed now, station work hasn't started yet, (11/07) only really few people working each day now compared with couple months ago, Interesting tho that the pad for triton seems to have been cleared out and ready to possibly start some work on that soon.

I think you mean 'Trident'... ;)

 

Unlike a steel coaster like Taipan where the control systems come with pre-fabricated bolt-on parts that simply slip into place and plug in, woodies, even though the massive structure appears complete, can still take a lot of work to place a lot of ride control components as they don't have a prefabbed hole to just slot into. 

And @jack.c even if that wasn't the case, its still got a lot to go until its predicted opening day around 5 months from now. (So if you're impatient now, you've got a looong road ahead!)

What’s going on with construction? When will testing commence? Has the station building been completed? Theming commenced? Why is this so slow ??

It feels like they're were powering through up until DW announced Steel Taipan's opening date goal, and just went "oh well, no need to rush, we've got til December to get this all finished now"

good old auto correct, 

 

still lots of track work going on but really minimum crew on each day just the one crane running and a hand full of guys, look like all the running track is in place now tho,

Realistically the station could go up in a week there's not really much in the structure it's self, I'm assuming we won't see the trains on until there's somewhere to store them out of the weather.

Just drove past the park, all the scaffolding has been removed from around the coaster. And the flag poles at the top of lift hill are also gone

It’s good to see construction is progressing quickly 

Just reading through this forum again and this made me laugh. A year later and still under construction

From my recent visits, it doesn’t appear that they’ve started on the station/queue yet.

@Naazon might be able to confirm

But things aren’t looking confident for a Summer opening. But they might not be in a rush anymore because of the border/lockdown uncertainty at the moment. They might decide to push for an Easter 2022 opening instead

There won’t be any interstate visitors in Qld again in 2021 (except for maybe NT/WA) so I don’t think they are gonna get the bang for the buck they were counting on with a Xmas launch. Whether they accept that, take the hit, and still open Leviathan, who knows. I doubt Trident is a priority in the current circumstances. I’d say it’s also pushed back the AA replacement plans too

It seems like there hasn’t been any major works been done since May. Construction of the station and maintenance building will probably take 4-6 weeks. Then we will have testing for 4-6 weeks. Plus landscaping, pathways, theming and signage. There probably another 3 months worth of work to go at the minimum. So if we don’t see work start up again next month, I don’t think we will see a December opening

      Operating Hours at Wet'n'Wild Gold Coast

      Monday - Wednesday the park will be closed.
      Thursday operating as it has normally during off-peak (10-3)
      Friday-Sunday normal operating hours.
      I will be surprised if they keep Wet n Wild open through Winter this year. It struggles through winter on a normal year, and during those years there's always plenty of debate on why it's open, I'm sure there's plenty more support for that debate this year. All I'll say on that debate is that you're extremely lucky if you get close to 1000 people (a day) through the gates, there are many days where 10% of that is hard to reach.
      Good weather days during the holidays are exceptions to the 1000 people rule, but they don't justify months of operation.

      Opening Hours - Plan your day at Sea World Gold Coast

      Warner Bros. Movie World Gold Coast operating hours

      I'm expecting that both Sea World and Movie World will reduce weekday operating hours through winter as well. Especially noting the conservative date ranges currently shown. (and once this happens, Dreamworld will obviously follow suit; if they don't announce it first)

      Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if COVID sees our parks completely adapt their operating schedules. Weekend operation of our main parks, Seasonal operation of the water parks. There are plenty of logistical issues with that, especially with contracted and salaried workforces. So it's not super likely to happen, but I can't say I don't see them moving closer to it.
      I know most of you are going to jump to "That doesn't make any sense, plenty of people still go to the parks during this time." As enthusiasts we have to understand that what we THINK makes sense, and what actually makes sense, are in many cases very different.
      Reducing hours means that you're increasing density of guests on the hours/days you're actually open, which means you're far better justifying the minimum number of staff you're required to have there anyway. Doesn't mean it'll feel any busier, especially without international tourists being here, and it goes without saying that a large majority of locals spend far less than interstate and international tourists, which is the part everyone seems to forget when talking about operating hours.
      this is all talking about off-peak, I'm not suggesting they'll change anything during the peak September-January season.

      I just thought of marking a place for us to share stories from Theme parks whether they’re insane, scary or happy share them here. Here’s one from theme parks me I remember going into hot wheels sidewinder just to look at the queue because I was too scared to go on it


      Don’t know what’s going on with the photos so just try your best to ignore it thanks

      My reason for this is that all signage for Spongebob 3D has been removed and a while back when they announced Vikings revenge would retire they said it would be removed to make way for a new attraction coming in 2019 but as you all would know that never happened and the ride has sat SBNO for 4 years or so
