DW saw a working train and had to put a stop to it 

Well for me it's good to hear they aren't banking on steel taipan to completely turn the park around

Vintage Cars now takes photos 

 

They have replaced a fence along the train line, it’s a shame they don’t continue this further instead of using pool fencing 

 

"Vintage cars benefits from the now-defunct log-ride photo camera"

"Train line benefits from all the left-over corrugated sheeting they bought to hide TRRR after they killed four people."

I'm fairly certain that past the woolshed area the fencing was old timber sleeper style fence, with maybe chicken wire on it, wasn't it? not pool fence? (agree that billabong area had pool fence though).

Dronkey Flyer maintenance extended until June 25. I would say a Dreamworks rebranding is coming. Pretty poor the park waits until 9:00am on the day its supposed to open to extend maintenance.

^It is when a large majority of the rest of the kids rides are also down at the same time. 

The entire ride was missing from the pad. They knew it wasn't going to be up. Probably 4 days prior to the due date, due to the weekend - its piss poor regardless of which ride it is, but especially because their kids offering right now is severely lacking.

So the one thing DW had going for them, they threw it out the window too?

The kids offering is very poor at the moment, 'Big Red Boat' is half capacity (lol), Gingy's Gliders is shut, The Donkeys are shut and the Shrek Carousel is down, if you have a toddler there is nothing.

Am I not understanding this sign correctly, since when has the tiger cub area been to the right (this sign is as you enter into Tiger Island from Dreamworks)?

When the Cubs are first put on display they are in that indoor display with windows for the public to view them through, to the right of The Den area. It’s currently  behind the closed gate however

Took some photos behind the walls at Trolls Village today. Is it just me or does the 'background' look 'new'? Anyone have any guesses as to what the theme could be?

Could this be 'Winterville' for Winterfest?

Yes that’s the remainder of the Trolls theming, I’m talking to the left of the pictures, where the old “stage for Trolls use to be.

Most ride’s were running smoothly at Dreamworld yesterday with only 5-15mins wait however:

MDMC was running horrendously slow. The wait was about 45 minutes for the standard queue (it’ll be a even longer wait for the poor families in the sidecar queue). This is a very long wait compared to The Gold Coaster - 5-10 mins and BuzzSaw - A walk on. In my opinion, MDMC is the ride that most guests would use Ride Express on during peak period yet its one of the only rides that you cannot use ride express on. 

Vintage Cars was running with only three cars, making it a 30 mins wait.

Gingy’s Gliders has returned looking fresh and like it’s had its 10 year full strip down and fully repainted.

Carousel is still mostly missing and off-site.

Lots of demo happening in the park yesterday and over the last week. The log ride sign was thrown in the bin while I was there. Few logs remain and theming left to the side but the site is pretty much all flat and lots of earth being brought in.
