Warner Bros. Movie World (WBMW) Discussion Thread

I never paid this coaster the slightest attention, even though I'm very interested in Mack hypers. Sounds like it's a top-class ride! I'd definitely ride backwards at least (and probably only) once--I never miss a chance to go backwards on a coaster if I can help it. I'll be very happy if similar designs start popping up.

I'm a bit confused by the $10 upcharge for the backward facing seats.

 

Do they literally take payment at the gate of the ride? Or do you pay for it at the admission gate? Is it "per ride" or do you get a pass for the day?

 

That being said, the ride itself looks phenomenal.

 

The theming of the queue is meh for me, looks a little too Six Flagsish. But hey, for me, if the ride itself kicks A$$, I always look past it. Minimal shade too. WOULD IT KILL THEM TO PUT UP SOME SHADE!???!

You buy a wristband from either the park's photo booth or out the front of the ride to ride backwards, they give you a time slot to show up in and you ride it then. It's only valid for one ride.

 

There are poles set up in the queue, so I'm sure shade isn't too far off.

With DC Rivals Hyper Coaster being open for just over a year it has entered its first extended maintinance period. However it seems to be some major working happen to a ride that is only just 1 year old. Photo credit to Gold Coast Theme Parks.

So 3 pieces of track from the Air time hill have been removed.

Seems odd for a ride thats been only opened a month.

So I can only think that it could be excessive forces and they're reprofiling (which is odd, as you'd think they would just trim it), excessive vibration and they're replacing the track, or they have found problems with the standard of manufacture/construction and are fixing it. Any locals have any better ideas? Was this part of the ride really THAT forceful? Or had any uncomfortable forces? It's all a bit odd to see such drastic maintenance a year after opening.

I'm sure it's a combination of everything you just listed. I can't really think of any other reason this much track would be replaced after only a year of operation. Just like Chuck said, this does remind me of what happened with I305.

I know I'm like 4 months from the last post but I found this as to why they removed those track sections.

 

After a very successful first season of operation and as part of Village Roadshow Theme Park’s Technical Services and Mack Rides Engineering process of continuous improvement, some minor track adjustments have been identified to further improve what is Australia’s best and smoothest rollercoaster experience. This is currently underway and you can look forward to experiencing the ride again on 17th September.
