Obviously you have less construction, a cool ferris wheel and no daylight.

We really enjoyed our stay at that hotel. Fantastic spot for a vacation.

Happily bore you guy but it'll have to be over a beer or something one day... Can't post on here.

 

I just love how many stories a ride that has never even opened has about it

We tried for a Xmas card photo, but someone wouldn't quite cooperate!

TPR Members doing the Sydney Harbor Bridge Climb!

TPR says goodbye to Sydney as we prepare for our first internal flight!

"Today I will be playing the role of airline host...and I'll do a better job that most LAX staff!"

travel5.jpg.d53fb9dfc44f53ecd01da4c227a07e10.jpg

And there is our plane!

travel6.jpg.dc39d19f89ddde6859206d84d1a6a9d2.jpg

It's like the plane knew we were coming!

travel7.jpg.8aa3b6c0d1270c01a453fe33345cb583.jpg

And just when things couldn't get weirder, we get spotted on the flight by TPR fan Scott who also just happened to be our flight attendant!

The view from our hotel....

Still our view!

Our day at Warner Bros Movie World started out with ERT on Superman! Easily one of the best themed Intamin rocket coasters ever!

wbmw02.jpg.7498fab05de499abb4c8f2d839821917.jpg

And then ERT on Scooby Doo first with the lights off and then with the lights ON!

wbmw03.jpg.ec39b5776ea5abf22ca80a91004ec6ab.jpg

Lethal Weapon was perfectly named...it was "Lethal!" ;)

wbmw04.jpg.50bc77bcd83d140c3b0833e70951ce61.jpg

It does have a BONUS HELIX!!!

wbmw05.jpg.30d5e60b8407ed462fa419e6e72b1b07.jpg

The park itself is very well themed and if it had maybe one or two more "major" attractions it would be on the map!

wbmw06.jpg.60cfe650bffd685cf5c33fa15a7208e7.jpg

It was time for credit whoring...

wbmw07.jpg.e8d5be0394ef92f4e3b2f5c7cf48131c.jpg

Roller Skater...check!

wbmw08.jpg.06480aa197e510d981f4a4f20be30ef7.jpg

I need to let the Knotts guy know about this!

wbmw09.jpg.84e9d26b2a7defd0e5b5ee4684d9037e.jpg

KidTums had an awesome time on the kiddy bumper cars.

wbmw10.jpg.0c6a6f39f3614155c1a7d09dcc80a633.jpg

This section of the park looked awesome!

wbmw11.jpg.fc781e87a7a2464f72af715baa0e804f.jpg

The log flume was cool...pretty much the same as the one at the Madrid park

wbmw12.jpg.ce2636841f88b3fc79aa9fd56b2a04bc.jpg

TPR gives it thumb up!

wbmw13.jpg.9e903eb019063c70b11bcd82c60b98ad.jpg

The Dirty Harry bar serves what might be my favourite named item in any park!

wbmw14.jpg.c44f008d6e446aa268bd655e88af9fa7.jpg

Yup...it's the "Make My Day Nachos!!!"

wbmw15.jpg.2f564aca17e8da038a8f7893660e4726.jpg

Getting ready to blast off on BatWing.

wbmw16.jpg.9bcad359f08c95882df4a0714b5e76b9.jpg

Superman is really awesome! Right up there with iSpeed, Xcelerator, and Storm Runner as the best Intamin launch coasters out there!

wbmw17.jpg.e22b0ba57da7f7c3ed3645776e52ba66.jpg

The short bit going in and out of the building was great!

wbmw18.jpg.8598052322da561e1a28775d6f4aa185.jpg

Awesome coaster!!!

wbmw19.jpg.7bcf6f535db567c09e38ebc45fdd8b3f.jpg

And yes, there are WB characters here!

wbmw20.jpg.c618d3cad61376b0175109eca33d00d3.jpg

And Looney Tunes!

wbmw21.jpg.d6d11086cae932968da94160fc9ccb55.jpg

We checked out the stunt driving show...

wbmw22.jpg.e5284de387e57c1d9beaa660eea1ef47.jpg

It was pretty much a Lights Motors Action rip off...

wbmw23.jpg.086378eb1ef2af4ff6b1ff163e92a5f3.jpg

But it was honestly pretty good!

wbmw24.jpg.58f470668d144cacb5c9025cf4ab5de7.jpg

And big explosions make everything awesome!

wbmw_016.jpg.ab7e9f853100d07f3f0476bb77c1d80c.jpg

It was very cool to get a "lights on" look at Scooby Doo. The park tells me that they have never done this for any guests before!

wbmw_004.jpg.4deda8fe04a0d7f989192c4b5c06186e.jpg

The dark ride parts were very cool. Reminded me of the "Dragon" at Legoland parks.

wbmw_010.jpg.a6195388dc2d29f93d25d14fc6256f3d.jpg

And the dark ride section was quite long as well.

wbmw_006.jpg.0d9513add0773e2b3d66dd05a7c05b69.jpg

The core of the ride itself is a standard 'extended' Mack Wild Mouse, like the kind you see at Legoland with the big drop.

wbmw_005.jpg.fb231a28d276e20b66bd73a003f8aee0.jpg

There are two major differences, though. The first being the elevator lift, which is similar to Europa Park's mouse or Journey at Sea World San Diego.

wbmw_008.jpg.75c86de66af9bffb3eaa74b2fc729b94.jpg

The other difference is that this drop is taken...backwards! You then enter a turn table right after the drop to go forwards.

wbmw_011.jpg.202ac2209791a88eac4cb221b82e07b3.jpg

And once you're turned forward it's pretty standard Wild Mouse stuff...

wbmw_007.jpg.6342f7bf8e611c30219b809ed71ed79a.jpg

Oh, yeah...there's a giant spider and lasers...it's like a Scooby Doo rave in a box!

wbmw_009.jpg.70545b1f52d2a8824a2ea689687d21ac.jpg

Is it just me or does Scooby kind of look like the dog from Redneck Batman?

wbmw_017.jpg.8fc9ce4c59b6942191cf078dd03c5e2e.jpg

Did we mention that Superman Escape was awesome?

wbmw_018.jpg.1075f8516a836ba9ef5dcc14dfdd5fca.jpg

The Superman figure on the back made me laugh every time I saw it! =)

wbmw_014.jpg.fb80615365ea20a068f4dbb3c1d2bd3c.jpg

It was very cool that Superman was there...it just looks kind of silly and made me giggle...

wbmw_015.jpg.e9cf3f651b570b22ed3312951ee82f12.jpg

Superman is "pushing" the train to safety...no really, that's the actual storyline! (to be honest, it's brilliant!)

wbmw_002.jpg.5d61c8a7e38255038244f2a5d891fe36.jpg

Here's the launch track shot! This comes after a long dark ride section (watch the video!)

wbmw_001.jpg.751904bad79809571f312f79d6279440.jpg

Yay! More POV!

wbmw_013.jpg.4ba3fc1858e0426786fc8d8eedf25158.jpg

I think I would put this one somewhere between Storm Runner and iSpeed. It was seriously kick ass!

wbmw_003.jpg.a86296b337248aca70b0f2ea22a6a172.jpg

And TPR members enjoyed a bit of ERT on the ride this morning! ;)

wbmw_012.jpg.fee617421f5ad144b0bd6133312915d1.jpg

And that pretty much wraps up our day at WBMW!

wbmw25.jpg.13ef479ba71e587b0fe310312c0f6162.jpg

Thank you to WBMW for a fantastic visit!

^Awesome work with respect to getting POVs up as you go. Very high quality...Our parks are quite restrictive when it comes to filming, nor do we really have enthusiast events where this can take place, so the only POVs out there tend to be sneaky ones on YT done with mobile phone camera. Good to have some now...Thanks.

 

How did you find Scooby with the lights off?

Wow, I had no idea that Superman was such an elaborate ride. For some reason, I always thought it was just a clone of the one at SFMM.

 

Scooby Doo looks like a step up from the Dark Knight rides, nothing more. Although, the dark ride portion definitely looks cool!

Both of those coasters are pretty impressive looking to me. How does Superman compare to Maverick? I loved Storm Runner and love Maverick and that thing looks like a cool mix of both (awesome launch with some great airtime).
