That is the fact sheet as provided to me from Village Roadshow Theme Parks (Movie World)

I am aware of Gotham City Gauntlet but from my understanding it is not themed to the video game

Hmm true.
And yeah that wasn't directed at you, it was more to make fun of Village Roadshow and their crap PR. Not really sure how its the first of its kind in the world. The only thing thats "first of a kind" is the KumbaK trains, but I don't think the GP care about that.

I'm just hoping that they can actually do something to salvage Lethal Weapon: The Ride other than just melting it down for scrap and starting over (that was one miserable SLC). This retheme sounds like a step in the right direction.

I really enjoyed Movie World last year, and thought the only bummer was Lethal Weapon (good queue, though).

If they end up adding a DC themed interactive dark ride with all these other changes and additions, they are going to have a great superhero themed 'land' area.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

On SLCs, "gut wrenching" is almost never a good thing. And if they hadn't improved the restraints, you might've ended up lacking the ears necessary to actually hear the on-board audio. :devil:

I have no doubt Arkham Asylum will still be rough but with these new trains you will not have anything to bash your head against :lmao:

You can see a slightly closer picture of the restraints here (image was too big to upload to TPR)

I Love Donkeys!

Maybe the thread name could be changed to be just Warner Bros. Movie World and talk about whats happening within the park?

I bet LW though is now looking a little different to when TPR visited. MW have released photos on their Facebook, with on behind the work walls showing of the new theming with a caption stating:
"A little sneak peak at the themeing work for Arkham Asylum – Shock Therapy, we are getting very close people."
Image
If you look at the photo closely on the ride hand side you can see some guys working on the track which is the break run and someone has stated that the ride is going to receiving magnetic breaks to slow the train down. It was also said the ride was in parts going to receive some re-tracking work, my guess smooth out some parts to make transitions easier or age, but in the end did not because they ran out of time to do so.

They also posted this photo a while back, you may remember as being the old building you would fly past on the ride now being turned into what looks to be a guard tower with the caption from MW's Facebook page being:
"The Tower themeing of Arkham Asylum begins"
Image
They have also posted some photos on their Facebook of some of the characters you may encounter in Arkham Asylum, these include Batman, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Bane, and Croc Killer with background info on all of them!
The ride is going to open some time in April, presumably in time for the school/Easter holidays coming up.

Meanwhile a Parkz member, One Day Holiday got these photos of the gutted Batman Adventure building.

They are clearly wasting no time on that attraction and the old simulators are already gone. Nothing appears to be happening to the old Looney Tunes building, even though it closed first. Although with all this other work going on in the park I'm not really surprised or care, my guess is they move over to that side of the park once the DC Comic area of the park is finished!

I'll hopefully be heading up to the Gold Coast during our winter, so I'll get to try out Arkham Asylum: Shock Therapy, and Green Lantern, but unfortunately I'll miss out on the Batman Adventure replacement.

Another note, I couldn't find a Seaworld thread and since MW & SW are the same company just thought I'd tell you Sesame Street has now left SW and Nickelodeon is now there with a Spongebob parade in the Ski Lake at the front of the park and Dora show where Sesame used to be. Once again, I don't live in that area anymore so some really good pictures of the parade, which looks to be top notch, can be found on parkz.

I agree this should become a "Warner Bros Movie World Discussion Thread"
