So doomsday destroyer is down for maintenance again I was at the park Sunday and they were testing it, And i was told it doesn't open til Feb. Whats going on with the ride seems closed a lot. Also the Arkham Asylum was stuck on the lift hill now every media page is running with and many people are now talking about how unsafe the gold coast parks are.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Was just at the park yesterday. The coaster was bare and the only things you could see other then darkness was the guard-rails around the track. The ride was shockingly bad without the theming. Just pure boredom. I understand maintenance has to be done. But to rip the theming out in the school holiday confuses me. Maybe a re-theming coming?


VR Maybe? Also odd cause there's a new Scooby Doo movie coming out.

Let's set a greeeeeat example/standard - strip all themeing and make you wear a headset to see it. VR on a wild mouse would also set a record low capacity..

I'm really hoping the ride is just getting a touch up. The lengthy ride is just pure fun. Really sad to see them running it empty without any notice to the GP.

You say that sarcastically, but don't be surprised if that's what actually starts happening in a few years.

They are the same park that brought only one train for their SLC, Now the wait time sucks. So it wouldnt surprise me if they do it.

^ No, the SLC opened with two trains - a blue and a red. Over the years, the two trains were butchered together to make one 'purple' train.

Was the old ride supposed to be like a windseeker 2.0 type ride?

The Kumbak trains use the original Vekoma bogies - as the park only had one complete set of bogies, they were only able to get one 'new' train.
