  1. I believe the coaster at Australia's Magic Mountain still holds the record of "furthest a bus load of theme park nerds will drive just to ride a Zyklon" !
  2. Sorry Joey - but in most all cases, water dummies do not come free with a ride purchase. Of course, all ride manufacturers are more than happy to supply them, but they can add an unnecessary cost to to the purchase of the ride. Not to mention that if a park gets water dummies for ALL of their new ride systems, there becomes the eventual issue of storage (or disposal) of all of those water dummies after commissioning. It is much more economical for a park to get a single set of water dummies and re-use them for multiple attractions where and when needed. The only downside to this is if a
  3. Not entirely great. The two days we were there a few weeks ago they had two of the three courses closed. Heard from the team that typically one or two of the three courses are closed daily for upkeep and "other" reasons @Looty: Completely agree on your opinions of Tron. It is a beautiful building and fantastic preshow experience - the attraction is sure to be a big hit in Orlando. I also felt the ride experience once you get inside the show building after the launch was a letdown. I swear that Robb's videos made the ride look more amazing then it actually was. I consider my expe
  4. Ferrari World is never very busy during the weekend of the F1 race. While spectators do get in free with their race pass - most visitors coming to Abu Dhabi for the race are there for the race and race-related events, they are not particularly interested in an amusement park. Locals not going to the race stay away from Yas Island that weekend of the race due to the potential traffic congestion. If you were at Ferrari World the following weekend (UAE National Day) - you would have seen some pretty significant queues. A little positivity and fact-checking goes a long ways!
  5. Wow! SO much incorrect information - really wish you talked to a few more people and got your facts straight before jumping to conclusions! Not paying debts (including not paying staff) is a serious crime in the UAE and rumors like this (and that is nothing more then a rumor) should never be posted on public forums Over at IMG, I give them some credit for their quick-response in installing those smaller "coin-operated" rides (which are free to use and have been there for almost a year now) and the mini-train. All done based on guest requests for in-park transportation and more things
  6. My head hurts just reading that post. Holy crap! Speaking of record breakers, I think we have a new winner for "longest run-on sentence"
  7. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Reminds me of most of the coasters we rode with TPR in China!
  8. The thickness of the spine... Don't be too sure of yourself! The thickness of the spine on a Mack Rides section of track also may equate to something as simple as a longer distance between support columns.
  9. Hotels only for tourists. I believe there are some spots to buy it if you have a license provided from the government for home use, but that's a Dubai Dave question. The "only at hotels" rule is a good general statement, but the UAE has, in order to promote tourism, allowed alcohol service at a number of other locations that are not connected to a hotel. For example, most all sporting events and other performances (concerts, festivals, etc) sell alcohol. Even all of the shows at the Dubai Opera House and the Dubai World Trade Center offer alcohol service. Many parks in the region al
  10. The relocation of Wild Wadi has been rumored for awhile. If you take a close look at that specific resort area of Dubai - including the Madinat Jumeirah, Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah Beach Hotel, and the new Jumeirah Al Naseem - it's obvious that the land the park sits on is far more valuable than the water park itself. Especially knowing that a significant number (way way more than half) the park's attendance are free admissions.
  11. Motiongate Dubai is beginning the technical rehearsal period today for their brand new How to Train Your Dragon area. The entire new "world" is absolutely breathtaking - photos just don't do it justice! I'm sure DubaiDave will be posting lots of photos soon. In the meantime, will give everyone a few photos of the beautiful trains from the new headliner attraction, Dragon Gliders - an inverted powered coaster from Mack Rides
  12. For Motiongate - keep an eye on their website. They just announced some AMAZING "Summertime" deals that should be in effect when you are visiting - just need to purchase them through the park's webstore. http://www.motiongatedubai.com
  13. Sorry - but the privilege of shooting a POV is being "reserved" until our friends at Theme Park Review visit us in March!
  14. The buses are, actually, just temporary. There is a very cool fleet of air conditioned trams already in testing at the resort to bring guests from the main (general) car park to the parks. There are multiple stops on the tram route - depending on what is most convenient to the park you are visiting. The VIP parking area (and Valet) are directly adjacent to Riverland - so no transport needed for this separate car park.
  15. Hollywood Tour is an amazing experience - the ONLY ride that even comes close to the awesomeness of Hollywood Tour is the shining star of Singapore known as Treasure Hunters!
