That video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSFRpJO2xgE) has the POV provided by Movie World and my own footage (filmed with permission) of Amber riding for my GCParks site.

The full update can be seen on my blog.

The full video of Amber riding can be seen on YouTube with a small plea for TPR to return to AUS.

Donkeys are my way of life!

I rode this yesterday. In all honesty, it's more comfortable than Battlestar, because the shoulder straps simply don't neck cut.
It still tracks like a regular Vekoma, but without the headbanging its a pretty cool ride.....I've got no issue with some roughness if there is no headbanging.

Having the ride ops wear orange jumpsuits or prison guard uniforms is clever. It's good to hear that they may have made an SLC more rideable, anyway.

I love how the year after TPR goes to Australia, almost all the parks have now decided to either get a new ride or upgrade some existing rides. Wasn't there like a 5 year span of nothing really happening at the parks in Australia? Awesome.

I have to be honest, I was a bit disappointed with it being rethemed to DC comics as over half the parks rides are now DC, including all the major coasters bar Scooby. However, there aren't many Warner Bros franchises that would've worked as most are cool but a bit dated (e.g Matrix), and DC comics are timeless.

Also, I agree all the parks seem to be improving somewhat after TPR leave haha. Movieworld got a new coaster, a revamped coaster and a soon to be announced dark ride, Dreamworld got a new coaster and even Aussieworld are expanding with a new DiskO and Flume ride, and unannounced $1million ride.
When TPR come back I'm hoping they will also be able to ride Australia's first B&M. I can dream :p

Yes Jimmy it has been a bit of a GO TIME in terms of construction here, an we're not done yet!

What it means though is in a couple years TPR can come back to a swag of new attractions and those that did the last trip will have much to see.
Certainly exciting times for those of us working for the parks.

And TPR was the first group to ride that new DiskO.

But the flume had yet to be built.

And now to return to the real topic of this thread, which is already in progress (and my apologies for aiding in its derailment). ;)

How about that Movie World?

I felt the same way after my trip in 2006! Lethal Weapon was terrible then, So I can only imagine how it rode up to last year, but this looks like a great improvement on the ride experience.
