Something like this would be the PERFECT replacement for Arkham Asylum. It's well themed, and it's actually about movies in general rather than just being Superhero themed, something Movieworld needs

This has been a thing since basically forever. From my point of view, once something has been announced broadly to staff then it's fair game. If you really care about stuff not getting out, you don't

One ride. Two ride. Red ride. Blue ride.  This one has a little star. This one has a little car. Say! what a lot of ride there are.

If we can't know, but you already do and tell us that you know, then that's not really fair. It just makes no sense to give teasers to people in very vague descriptions when you're not even employed by VRTP or a website/page dedicated to sharing information about them. After all, if what your saying isn't true then we've just been led down a rabbithole of speculation which we didn't need to discuss

Here's the thing - if they are trolling you - then you're playing right into their hands.

if they aren't, then they're going about it in the worst way possible. This doesn't earn them any rep points. It's like me saying 'arkham will be replaced by a ride that may or may not be a coaster. And it may or may not be black, white, red, grey, pink, green, purple, orange or fuschia.'

If one of those things is right, i'm gonna stand on my soapbox and proclaim loudly how right I was... but its easy to hit the target with a shotgun from 5 steps away.

We've covered on these boards many times how much the "i know something but i can't tell you" crowd can just fuck right off so either way - just don't feed them?

So what I'm getting atm:

If you hold confidential information, don't share it. And if you do use the 'special list of dos and don't shares' (but it's recommended you don't share).

Either way, if you do, use SUBTLE hints to not share EXACT details, like:

"what colour will the track be?"

"oh idk, it beams with bold, bright and brilliant colour, silky flaked texture, dazzling on the side of a shiny coke can..."

I'm tempted to have that being a rule that we don't mention staff or management by name so you don't get the childish name calling and low key bragging that you get.

Nobody has been name calling and you might want to ask the person you are talking about here, to change his user name to Park Management.🤪 

Anyway, I have no problem if Parkz wants to change the rules on the trot but let be noted it has always been the way of Parkz.  Even from the very top.

 

“It's laughable how DeborahThomas was able to throw the Disneyland buzzword out there and distract people while saying exactly what yesterday's ASX release said. It is a transparently obvious attempt at damage control....................

There's a difference to posting in direct response to public comments to bashing someone behind their back or name dropping for the street cred, and I think anyone engaged in this in a good faith way can see that. You're allowed to say '<name> spoke to the media and said this. I agree/disagree with them' compared to just bringing someone's name up out of the blue to criticise them and things they've done.

 

FWIW I wasn't targeting you with the original comment, I actually forgot the name dropping was a thing you'd done till you reminded me by posting about it. It's been a thing on the board for the past few years and I don't like it. I've probably done it myself if you go back in time enough, but it has been a bit of a trend at different times for lots of people to do it, and I don't think it is either good or helpful.

I haven't come back to cause shit. 🙂

You don’t need to cause shit, there’s heaps of fodder on here without needing to involve yourself.

In regards to what to do with Arkham, I’d say pull it down, remove all the theming (whilst it was better than without it, a lot of it is just flat graphics). Let’s expand out the park footprint, there’s heaps of space and land around there, and if noise is an issue, put it in a building.

From Bikash “We also have the brand new, tallest waterslide at Wet’n’Wild, obviously the Atlantis at Sea World with the Trident and the wooden coaster, and there are a whole bunch of things we have planned for when we re-open. You are in for a very big treat here Gold Coast.”

Maybe the big treat is the AA replacement?

      I understand that this has been added to their website around the last week or two but just thought I'd leave them here.
      Movie World has added planned maintenance periods for the following rides in 2022:

      There will be no theme park that will be able to compete with us’: Movie World plans for a hotel
       
      Village Roadshow has reignited its plans for a hotel at Movie World, lodging a trademark application that reveals its likely branding for the nine-storey, 398-room landmark.
       
      VILLAGE Roadshow has reignited its plans for a hotel at Movie World, lodging a trademark application that reveals its likely branding for the nine-storey, 398-room landmark.
       
      IP Australia records show Village Roadshow applied for a trademark for “Hotel V” at the end of March. It is pending registration.
      Village Roadshow, which was delisted from the ASX last year after a takeover by private equity firm BGH, gained development approval for a hotel in 2017 for its 14ha site at Oxenford.
       
      Planning documents reveal the development will include 32m high, nine-floor “theme park hotel” with 398 suites which is earmarked for land currently occupied by its northernmost carpark fronting Entertainment Drive.
       
      The ground floor will house reception, a lobby, administration office, business centre, bar, function centre, cafe, kitchen, kids club, amenities, gym and hotel back-of-house facilities.
       
      Ramp access and an elevated walkway on level one is planned to provide guests connection to the adjoining restaurant and dining precinct building plus theme park entry.
       
      The project is also set to incorporate “extensive outdoor swimming facilities, outdoor guest recreation areas and feature landscaping plantings”.
      A three-storey restaurant and dining precinct building, including a ground-level cafe and upper-level restaurant is also a feature of the plan.
      “Guest access to the restaurant and dining precinct is provided via an elevated walkway above the proposed porte-cochere, which will provide a prominent architectural feature” planning documents lodged by Urbis said.
       
      Village Roadshow declined to comment on hotel progress, but chief operating officer Bikash Randhawa has been active on social media, hyping big upcoming reveals for the company: “I don’t do this often, but get ready for some HUGE announcements from us. There will be no theme park on the GC or in Australia that will be able to compete with us.”
      When someone posted a photo of a Harry Potter studio, Mr Randhawa replied: “That’s small with what will happen over time.”
      When another person suggested another theme park was coming to the Gold Coast, he said “over the next few announcements, better than that”.
      Mr Randhawa said “no way” when someone suggested a casino could be built at Movie World.
      The hotel will be Village Roadshow’s latest in a hefty pipeline of investments on the Gold Coast, which in recent years, have included the $35 million DC Rivals Hypercoaster, Top Golf and its $50 million Atlantis precinct at SeaWorld, which is expected to be completed in mid-late 2021.
      The news follows revelations last week that Dreamworld’s owner Ardent Leisure was also shopping for major new attractions as work continued on its $32 million flagship ride, the Steel Taipan.

      I am heading to Movie World in a few weeks, and I am 160cm and 130kg carrying most on my bum and thighs. I know there will be some rides I won't fit on. But does anyone know which rides have tester seats before you join to line. To save me queuing up if I'm not going to fit.

      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.
