    Australian Season Passes

    Adventure World's platinum pass usually retails for above $200. It gives you great discounts on food and entry to their night events. It also includes a couple of fast passes, discounted entry for up to 8 friends and a reduced price for a cabana. https://adventureworld.net.au/pricing/platinum-season-pass/
  2. They were willing to offer a chunk of land, but they weren’t impressed by the offers. https://www.ausleisure.com.au/news/northern-territory-government-remains-committed-to-darwin-waterpark-plans-despite-applicant-rejections/

    Nostalgia at the Parks

    Did anyone notice Shawn's POV of Area 51(aka Bermuda Triangle) in one of the latest videos on Theme Park Woldwide? It's about 38 minutes in. https://youtu.be/55672DBdRs4

    COVID-19 & Theme Park Closures

    Perth Zoo opened on Saturday. There was no limit on numbers, but you did have to book ahead. The indoor areas like the nocturnal and reptile houses were closed. https://www.mediastatements.wa.gov.au/Pages/McGowan/2020/06/Perth-Zoo-reopens-to-the-public.aspx

    Coronavirus and theme parks

    Yeah, people are generally having a positive reaction to Adventure World closing. Outback Splash is staying open and limiting its attendance to 500 people. Screamscape has picked up on the fact that the GC parks are still open.
  9. Cool photos - always great to see another park in Australia. I'm sure Gazza would appreciate it if you entered them on this page: https://www.parkz.com.au/parks/AU/Whittlesea/Funfields
  10. Hope you didn’t miss the nearby cup noodles museum.

    Northam Aquatic Centre

    Finally got the chance to drive the hour and a half to Northam and ride the slides. It’s a really nice new aquatic centre that replaces the old Olympic Pool on the other side of town. It’s $5 for pool entry for adults and another $5 for a 2 hour session on the slides. The weather in Perth has been awful this past week, so the sun actually turned up, today, and there was a top of 27 degrees. The water isn’t heated, so this temperature was just fine. We arrived just after the start of the morning two hour slide session(10-12 and 2-4pm on weekends) and I wouldn’t have seen more than 5 people on the slides and probably another ten in the rest of the pool complex. The four slides come off a three storey tower and thankfully they all land into the shallow splash pool from the same direction. There’s a small kids slide on the first floor. A light blue/teal open slide on the second floor, and darker blue and light green enclosed slides from the third floor. The young staff were helpful, chatty and relaxed. The blue slides are the quickest, faster than the Gold Rush at Outback Splash. The green slide was wider, like it was meant for tubes, and runs out of puff just before the end. There’s definitely more to do here if you’re a single rider than Outback Splash. The slide tower is pretty narrow, but does the job. The enclosed tubes have a decent length of time in the dark. The tower is surrounded by a lovely little native garden and there are plenty of shaded areas for families to gather. The whole complex looks pristine and puts the rest of Northam to shame. It’s got a lot going for it, considering its price point. The local community should be very happy with this investment.

  13. It's not a replacement for Wipe Out?!! Or is that the chill area?
  14. Good point about a lack of investment in family rides.
