I'm Back!

8 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, sorry about not giving any two cent coins this week but I have had some major illnesses since Friday. But that didn't stop me going to dw on saturday, ooohh, and I have a couple of photos except, I will be posting them on Saturday because I will be near my lovely friend ADSL which makes life easier. Well I guess we've all heard about about Queensland's big 700 mil upgrade in power and funny thing was that on Saturday Dreamworld was quite severely affected. The Log Flumes were all jammed up on the first lift hill, but the new lift construction did come in handy said the ride-op at the time. Then there was Cyclone, which had its train stuck halfway up the lift hill and had to have a ride-op sent up to manually release the harnesses and get everyone down. Luckily I was able to venture into areas of "staff only" origin and there is some seriously whacked stuff under the Cyclone queue line, ahem, moving on..... :rolleyes: Giant Drop had both side's winches stuck somewhere on the tower, one was on the magnets the other was sitting at the top. River Rapids was fully drained, not to mention that one of the Rapid cars were half-sunk in the river! :D And the park had hundreds of screaming guests which I also have photos of and plenty more, but you have to wait for photos. Buh-bye :eek:

Yep that must have been some life threatening illness. You managed to get off your deathbed and go to Dreamworld just 24 hours after being struck down. Isn't modern medicine amazing? "The Bus is now leaving for Illiadoctor Swamp, South Australia"

On Friday it was like a very bad headache, Saturday afternoon when I was waiting with ops for the GD's power to come back on I began to have a very intense cough. Apparently now I have a viral infection, and are still very sick.

According to security logs I understand that Slick was discovered snooping in the area below the Cyclone. He was then escorted back to the GP area of the park where he belongs. Naughtly little boy.

More luck of the draw than anything. Some guy broke his $1200 Nokia phone in the bottom of the cyclone area and was asked to go with the reide-op downstairs into the area. Had a bit of a look around. And then we went back to the park via a gate directly near the Cyclone entrance.

Is there a fence to jump to get into there, or can you get there fairly easily, but you are not really meant to?
Slick would like us all to believe that he is all powerful. The area he was discovered in is a back-of-house area, and he did not leap into the centre of the Cyclone queue area in a single bound. I'll be amazed if he ever brings along a friend...
