Well it does look like Sea World will be getting a new water coaster. Here is the link with all the info on that upcoming attraction.

It looks like it is going to be a Mack water coaster, with the layout from the plans an exact copy of those from the Mack web site link.

Can only hope for a nice long coaster sometime soon...

GO THE WIZZ! The staff at Dreamworld were absolutely AMAZING on Friday. I was taking that photo for PKI Man, and then the lady from the helicopters just comes up and asks if I want to jump in. She then took the photo for us.

Talk about great service right there.

Aww man you should have gone to WWW, there is some pretty awesome stuff you missed like the BRO and the Rip, I mean you had done the main DW stuff hadn't you?
Geez Hurricane, you're misleading the poor kid :P

I'm a little late here but yes Robb the PA show is still running. It never closed, they talk about it every year and it looks like its more possible than ever it will be replaced.
But they still can't get the time line confirmed.

The Mack coaster has been canned but Sea World is getting something much more exciting... stay tuned...
Cheers

Well, BRO looked cool, but KI has pretty much the same thing...but abit smaller. The Rip looked cool, but I was really only interested in that and Super Water Coaster Thing. But from what I heard, it's LAME compared to Deluge at SFKK.

New Things Done at DW that day:
-Meeting new friends
-Metting the WIZZ!
-Getting a GREAT ride on ToT! Make sure you leave some space between you and the lap bar, then you get that 6.5 seconds of 0 g's!!!
-Breaking The Claw
-Seeing the "Aussie Zoo" section of the park
-Seeing a 'roo with a joey in it's pouch! It's soooo wierd!
-Getting more pictures =)
-More Giant Drop!!!

It was an AWESOME last day in Australia. I was so bummed to leave. I'm in Denver right now because flights got canceled and delayed...so I have some internet time! If it isn't too slow, I will get some more pictures up.

LOL! I remember breaking the Claw! I was sitting there thinking "Uh... shouldn't the floor be coming up right about now" And then the op said "We are experiencing a short delay" It took them 15 mins to get us off... and I missed my bus home!

But yeah, it was great meeting you and I hope you had a great time in AU!
