This was an image attached to LPs Email.  I’m noticing SLC Track. 🤔

Oh god, I remember seeing the same image around Luna just a week ago. I really didn’t know why they included SLC track, looks like The Goldcoaster from Dreamworld with it’s original yellow colour (funnily enough, was originally the Big Dipper V.2 at Luna in the 90’s).

Hahaha..yeah this is very poor. Looking at this you would think that LPS was putting in an Arrow Suspended Coaster!!! 🤣


There should be something representative of the new Big Dipper- their art department has had a huge brain fart!!

It seems to be their main graphic used to advertise their NYE event at the park. I'd imagine that they just had a background-less coaster track image lying around and just slapped it on to save time cause the track is just the same image duplicated at slightly different sizes. Otherwise they'd need to have a photographer go out with ideal lighting, find the right angle for the track, take the picture, edit it and then cut out the background to chuck it on the graphic. That's a lot of work for a single event where the ride isn't the focus. 

From what I know the marketing and content team at LPS is pretty small (and watching the job listings they're struggling to fill spots) so I don't envy their work load. Likely they just pumped it out as quick as possible and then moved onto the next thing.

On a positive note, at least decals have been applied to the facade in front of the BD station to make it look somewhat authentic and faithful to the intricate facade that it sits next to.


Surprised this wasn't at least asked - i thought they hand painted those on, rather than just stick-ons... can anyone confirm?

The Big Dipper is due to open on Boxing Day at this stage. The testing will of course continue - next week the 2nd train will be added and 2 train runs will commence. The next big ticket item will be Plant registration.

Wild Mouse is also set to reopen Boxing Day and has had 4 of the 6 towers completely replaced with the final two being locked in for replacement in February. Most of the track has also been completely replaced as well, by the time Boxing Day rolls around she will feel like a new ride.


Good times!!!

Was busy reading the BD page on LPS website but couldn't get over what's underlined:


New Big Dipper


The Big Dipper returns, but not as you know it. It’s bigger, dippier, faster, higher and 360° loopier. It’s the world’s first inline seating launch rollercoaster, and Australia’s tallest and fastest multi-launch coaster. Big kids only.
