Movieworld Australia, New for 2016 - VILLAINS UNLEASHED!

Postby Colse35 » Tue Feb 23, 2016 12:03 am

Warner Bros. Movie World is set for a villainous take-over with the announcement of the world-first DC Comics Super-Villain Unleashed themed area and the Doomsday Destroyer attraction launching in October 2016.

DC Comics Super-Villains Unleashed, an immersive themed area, will become home to the Doomsday Destroyer, a monstrous looping ride like nothing else that will unleash an army of DC Super-Villains upon Warner Bros. Movie World. The aim is to leave mass destruction in their wake in order to prove that sometimes it’s good to be bad.

With Village Theme Parks Unlimited Memberships almost sold out time is running out to get yours and be among the first to receive Super-Villain Central and the Doomsday Destroyer updates and information. Premier and Elite members will also be eligible for exclusive access to the attraction once it opens as part of their members-only benefits.

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

The new area sounds like a good idea. DC does have a great Rogues Gallery. I was thinking Super Loop when they mentioned the Doomsday ride, too.

Well back in 2013 a 145m tower was proposed themed to Doomsday. A description for the rides reads:
"The ride experience would feature a low speed setting perfect for those who want to get a bird’s eye view of the Gold Coast. The ride would also feature a high speed setting to get hearts racing for thrill seekers. On the low speed setting, the ride would travel slowly up and down the tower and then rotate slowly at the top of the tower, while on the high speed setting it would zoom to the top of the tower then spin at a high speed. Riders would be seated in one of three gondolas which each feature twelve seats. Riders sit in individual seats where their legs hang free and they are secured by a chest harness. A height restriction of 110cm would apply for safety reasons. During the day the ride would operate in both “scenic” mode and “thrill seeker” mode at pre-designated times."

This was however was suppose to go into the helix of Superman. This ride appears to be going between Scooby Doo & Wild West Falls, in front of the unused Stage Show. The press release talks about looping and an interview talks about being inverted, so this plan is obviously out.

Most people seem to be guessing an Intamin Suspended Twin Hammer.

The rumour doing the rounds is that the new attraction will be an Intamin Suspended Twin Hammer: www.intaminworldwide.com/amusement/RoundRides/Suspended+Twin+Hammer/tabid/141/ProductNumber/Suspended+Twin+Hammer/language/de-DE/Default.aspx

If this is indeed what they're adding, it certainly fits the space they're currently preparing for the ride. I'm cautiously optimistic - Movie World definitely needs some flat ride capacity, and it would add some much-needed "kinetic energy" to that corner the park as well.

^That would make more sense to me than a Super Loop, at least when it comes to theming.

Awww... I was really hoping that they were sticking the the old plan. That ride looked so cool.
Still confused about why vekomas headquarters hasn't been burnt down by an angry mob of enthusiasts

^Yes, it's too bad those plans didn't work out. I like Movie World quite a bit--especially Superman Escape.

It looks like this flat isn't the only thing we'll see from Movie World, with a development application for a Roller Coaster approved. RCDB says it will open in 2017 and is an extreme steel sit down coaster.

They also had applications in for a lakeside precinct, entertainment precinct and Hotel.
