  1. I wouldn't be going around saying stuff like that unless you have a credible source. So far the only new investments that we KNOW are happening in the park is a retheme of Lethal Weapon with the new trains, and even then we are not 100% if they will actually retheme the ride or not.


    Until such a time as it is confirmed, the DC comics dark ride is a rumor. Also Sally Corp already had a dark ride at Movie World, the looney tunes river ride.

  2. The coaster went vertical early this morning, and I have some construction pics. I'll try and keep TPR updated every 3 - 4 days at least and i'll take photos before work each day too



    Through the fence!!



    We have erection! So far the station, pre lift and the first part of the lift hill is installed.



    A bit of a look of where the attraction is located, at the front of the park next to the ticket booths.

  3. KMG Tango's just have the most uncomfortable / strange looking harness ever! Seriously... it's not male friendly at all.

    The way the ride works is you sit on a small padded (not very much) bit of metal like a bicycle seat and the metal cage comes down over your body. There are seatbelt like straps that are attached and lock TIGHT over them and dig into your neck a little bit as well. You can either hold onto the metal framework or onto 2 bike like handlebars that stick out from the bottom of the seat.


    You are lifted 21m into the air and the main arm spins at 21RPM, with the tri-star (where the gondolas are attached) spinning at 16rpm and the seats can also flip and all motions are capable of rotating in a clockwise and counterclockwise motion.


    Generally speaking it's a very uncomfortable ride, but if you push the harness down TIGHT it can be comfortable.


    Here's a few pics and a video to show you just how fast it spins and how high it goes.

  5. I managed to come across some blueprints for the attraction, and that is what I have used to design the ride. Alot of the curves in the finished product will be alot more "sudden" and have some slight G-Force spikes just like the real attraction. It also has some of the famous "Arrow Transitions"


    Hopefully I will have it finished by mid March, and then i'm going to start working on a Sea Viper recreation and a Lethal Weapon one

  6. "Originally opened at Luna Park in Sydney as Big Dipper in 1994 but was closed after just nine months due to noise complaints. It also opened (along with the park) for a brief period in 2000 to coincide with the Sydney Olympics but closed again after. The original cost of the ride in 1994 was $8 million. In 2001, Dreamworld purchased the coaster for $3 million. The original budgeted cost for modification, installation and theming for Dreamworld was $5 million, but the costs went over this figure by $500,000 - still a saving of $2.5 million on the ride's original cost.


    Two inversions (sidewinder and vertical loop respectively) are the very last elements on the ride. Reengineering of many of the supports took place as a result of the move to Dreamworld as in Sydney it was built atop a single storey building in parts."
