Village Roadshow Theme Parks to offer Free Entry to GC2018 Athletes and Volunteers
Village Roadshow Theme Parks’ is getting into the spirit of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games by offering complimentary entry to four theme parks to athletes and volunteers.
During the GC2018 games period, all athletes and volunteers will be eligible to enjoy the thrilling rides and attractions on offer at Warner Bros. Movie World, Sea World, Wet’n’Wild Gold Coast and Paradise Country complimentary on production of their GC2018 accreditation documentation.
Village Roadshow Theme Parks CEO, Clark Kirby said Village Roadshow is Australia's largest theme park operator and he is proud to showcase the parks during GC2018.
“We are excited to offer athletes and volunteers the opportunity to experience our world-class rides and attractions while they are here on the Gold Coast,” he said.
“The parks will provide a great opportunity for athletes to simply relax and have some fun outside of the fierce competition taking place.
“It is also a fantastic way for us to say thank you to the thousands of hard-working volunteers who will be helping throughout the period.”
Commonwealth Games Minister Kate Jones said it was important to recognise the volunteers who had already started to work at Games venues in the lead-up to the opening ceremony.
“We’ve trained more than 15,000 volunteers who are selflessly giving their time to make sure we deliver the best Commonwealth Games of all time,” she said.
“It’s great that Village Roadshow have recognised them for their hard work as well.
“What makes the Gold Coast such an important visitor destination is the variety of its tourism offering – from the natural beauty of the hinterland and the beaches, to the theme parks and the nightlife.
“Village Roadshow are an important part of that mix and we’ll continue to work with them on tourism opportunities in the future.”
Village Roadshow Theme Parks will also be offering a special ticket for all team officials and athletes’ family and friends to visit the parks during the period.
