Least surprising news this week

Stuff reports:

Organisers of a troubled water slide event that originated in New Zealand have scrapped the business model after the venture failed across the Tasman.

The Monster Slide event moved to Australia in March, leaving behind angry New Zealand customers owed refunds and suppliers claiming they are owed thousands of dollars.

Monster Slide Australia Pty Ltd was to run the Australian events and is linked with Monster Slide in New Zealand, which was operated by Trill Productions and its director, – a Wellington entrepreneur.

Despite the controversy in New Zealand, it was hoped organisers could make it a success in Australia. Nearly six months into the venture, they have failed to run three advertised events and have now torn up their business model.

I thought their business model was dupe people into buying tickets for an event they never actually provide.
