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.

When Storm opened it was advertised as a family coaster, but it’s also listed as Max thrill. You can’t trust VRTP’s interruption because they list WWF and Scooby as thrill rides too.

Based off other coasters of similar thrill that the Gravity Group have done, I’d say it’s minimum height will be 120cm

I came back from Sea World today! And I took some photos of Leviathan. I didn't saw anything happening on site today, But I'm happy that I saw The Wooden Coaster in person today.

I agree, but with the the way the park has been designed, it just wouldn’t work because that area includes the back of house, staff area, maintenance area and the storage area for the stunt show 

There's more than one way to skin a cat. Sea World is in incredible mish mash of one way paths, choke points and pointless gates. They need to connect the dots and run a path down the eastern side.

Turn the boat\truck parking into a photo opportunity - i'm sure many kids would love to stand in front of the 'truck' boat for a picture. And you don't need to remove all the other infrastructure - just a simple 4-ish metre wide pathway through the middle. Walking guests past long lengths of bare hoarding doesn't seem to be an issue at the Seal exhibit behind storm, so I don't see the issue - and if they need to close the pathway for a few minutes during the stunt show it wouldn't be a big deal.

Plus, put some nice imagery, educational information about the animals etc, maybe install some seats on the far (road) side facing the lake with some speakers so if people have walked down that way and gotten held up by the show, they can sit and watch the show?

I'm sure these people who are actually paid to run theme parks could improve on my spitballed, spur of the moment ideas - so its definitely doable.

That side of the park is the only day time operation ‘back of house’ access for vehicles, plant and other services. You’d also have to pass through back of house staff areas and maintenance workshops to get to it. Else you’d have to go in front of the dock which obviously can’t work because then it’s not a dock. 
 

Yes there are terrible chock points in the park, but opening that path to guests just isn’t an option.

Should just fill in the lake and get it over with already. They keep eating into it, getting smaller and smaller. The stunt show is just a shell of it's former self, will anyone really miss it? Think of all that space for new rides!

      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
