I'm guessing it won't ever be shown in the future, seeing as small boobs were banned, and we all know
(I'm joking, btw)

I saw it a couple of times back in the day. There were really crappy camera angles for the projector screen above the puppet stage (these would largely involve Tails flying above the stage), poorly done songs, and terrible voice acting.
But the pantomime aspect was awesome. I went and helped Dr Robotnik build his evil machine one time after he sung his song about evil or whatever. It simply involved tipping little plastic and foam cogs from a bucket behind the puppet stage. The presenter told me I was a brave boy for helping him. That punk didn't know I was toughest kid in the land, obviously.
All in all, childhood memories. Good stuff. All you haters just never got to see it.
As for the building, as Nattala said, it got smashed to smitherins in 2008 and now a new retail sector is being built there. There is a timeline saying that the amusement park opened to huge crowds, but it was short lived and closed 2 years after opening. Ouch. But I gave it good buisness. Still have that Knuckles toy. Good stuff

Awesome videos, thanks for the links!
The building did stay around for awhile but it was demolished in 2008, there's actual footage of it being demolished HERE . I think the building looked pretty cool actually, I remember thinking as a kid that the blue thing on the top was a Chaos Emerald. Anyway for those who are interested there's also some footage of the SEGA World Australia and some of the rides HERE including a talk with a Sonic costume.
Does anyone know if SEGA World London had Aqua Nova? Because I remember that ride, but I dunno if my memories of it are from London or Sydney.
I also remember a ride where like, gremlin-like things attacked you. I can't remember if it was actually THE Gremlins (as in the film) and was at Australia's Warner Brothers Movie World, or it was at SEGA world Sydney or London. Anyone know?
I barely remember the coaster. I remember being sad it wasn't Sonic themed. I don't remember what it did, though.

My 3rd trip to Sydney was sad, the massive Sonic and Tails were gone from the front, everything that had to do with Sega World was torn down / removed.. all that was left was a thank you note to all its patrons on what used to be the front entrance
