  1. They still do have allocated seating, however if you ask the loader if you can wait for a specific seat they will let you.
  2. Wild West Falls at Movie World has Lap Bars and operations have always been really good. for a 7 minute ride with anywhere between 11 - 13 boats in circulation we would normally get about 600 per hour. For an Australian park that was pretty good, the constantly moving platform made things easier as we would only stop it for a guest that required assistance or if all the checks were not completed before a boat got to the end of the platform. I think my personal record as a loader in peak season and 15 boats on the ride was 850 riders with each boat having 8 riders. But that was when it was a fu
  3. Good luck with that. Village Roadshow are very strict on loose items sadly, so unless they release an official video themselves I wouldn't count on it sadly
  4. Hey guys! As many of you might now be aware DC Rivals Hypercoaster entered technical rehearsals today! I got to ride it 3 times this afternoon. First ride was facing backwards, second time I went in the front row and the third time I went in row 10 (best seat for Airtime). As far as the ride goes, a few little things to note. Riding backwards is an extra $10 per person and is reserved in half hour slots (so your wristband might say return between 10:30am and 11:00am for example). Fast track is also currently unavailable at this stage and from what I have heard is likely not to be implement
  5. The food at Sea World hasn't improved that much at all. However at Dreamworld and even Movie World the food has dramatically improved. Just don't get a burger from the village theme parks
  6. Looks like they have reused most of the VR footage from Movie World's Arkham Asylum Coaster in Australia. Not a bad thing by any means as IMO the VR worked wonders on the attraction here and is a very solid addition.
  7. Would be great to do it after the Commonwealth Games IMO as the parks are adding quite a bit hopefully before then, but whilst it's on i'll be avoiding the area like the plague (and i'm a local!). However the moment dates are announced for this, I intend to do this. I can't quite afford an overseas trip right now, and even though i've been to most of the parks here it still seems like a great experience either way.
  8. Funny you should mention a Hot Wheels themed roller coaster. Dreamworld in Australia is in the process of refurbishing / retheming it's Arrow Roller Coaster (Cyclone) into a Hot Wheels themed ride. "A special part of Australian motor racing history will soon have a new home at Dreamworld with motor racing royalty converged on Dreamworld as three Peter Brock racing cars - including his most famous ride ‘The Big Banger’ - arrived at the park, the first instalment in Dreamworld’s new Motorsports Precinct. With works underway the construction is on track for Brock’s Garage doors to open post-C
  9. Here is the video in question about the open air Zipper [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]
  10. http://www.afr.com/business/tourism/royal-caribbean-dream-boat-to-debut-in-australia-in-2017-20150415-1mleb1 Can I say right now how damn excited I am that a QUANTAM class ship is coming to Australia in 2017! I've been looking enviously at the other ships that RCCL have and compared to anything we have in Australia this is just amazing. http://www.royalcaribbean.com.au/findacruise/ships/class/ship/home.do?shipCode=OV&wuc=AUS
  11. iPhone 6+ 128GB Space Grey. Finally Apple released what is IMO the perfect phone for me, the screen is just gorgeous and the phone feels great in the hand. I think my iPad Air is a bit jealous as it's not getting used anywhere near as much anymore now.
  12. I'd say honestly Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster and Superman for obvious reasons. Overall my favourite park as far as friendliness and just pure fun would have to be Aussie World. The staff are just awesome and seriously love their jobs and nothing is too much for them to make sure your day is great. The WipeOut at Dreamworld also gets an honourable mention for me, as it's one of the only Vekoma Waikiki Wave Super Flips left and it's just had a full on refurb so it should still be around for a long time yet.
  13. So... my mum decided she really liked my Nokia Lumia 1020 and brought it off me. So I brought a Samsung Galaxy SIII (4G LTE version with 2GB RAM instead of 1GB) I know it's an older model phone to be buying brand new but when it outperforms phones that are being released right now... it's a very good phone. I did love my iPhone 5 though, but the screen really was just a bit too small for my liking. If they had at 4.5 inch screen or something i'd maybe consider switching back.
  14. This annoys me too - it's probably park policy but the employees at Movie World seem to enjoy telling guests that they need to go all the way around to ride again. Really irritating on a ride like Arkham Asylum, where one cycle takes about ten minutes because the park has found the slowest possible way to operate an SLC. As an ex employee of Warner Bros. Movie World I would like to clarify a few things with you. It is park policy to not allow re-rides on the attractions within the park. The only major ride that allows re-rides is Wild West Falls when it's quiet and we would allow you to s
  15. Can I just honestly say right now... that coaster makes some of the roller-coasters i've seen at carnivals look like something B+M built! I personally don't think I would allow myself on that ride yet alone a child if I had one!
