    COVID-19 & Theme Park Closures

    Have updated the original post based on the VRTP update found here (thanks to @themagician for pointing that out).

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    I'm calling it - it's high-vis orange, and I reckon it's pretty snazzy.

    COVID-19 & Theme Park Closures

    I've refreshed the original post with updated dates and links. Does anyone know how our non-QLD parks are doing? If there's a regional park that's not on the list that you think is worth a mention let me know.
  4. The ironically man-made river is now protected so it can't be drained, so if anything it's a question of "what can you do with the island?"

    Creature Cruise at Dreamworld

    FYI Country Fair was the name for Ocean Parade before it was Ocean Parade.
  6. I've put together a quick consolidated knowledge-base for guests & members to stay up to date with the latest COVID-19 related impacts to the country's major theme parks & water parks. This initial post will be updated periodically. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Timeline for parks to re-open (last updated, 16th June, 2020 @ 9:58pm) On the 8th May, prime minister Scott Morrison announced the easing of COVID-19 related restrictions in Australia, which included amusement parks as a part of stage 2 of 3 of the easing plan. At present, this plan is being implemented at the state level, and as such, each state is progressing with this plan on a different timeline based on a myriad of factors, including (but not limited to) active cases of COVID-19 and the rate of infection in the community. However, as of the 13th May, it's been noted in the media that many larger businesses (including our theme parks) may not re-open during stage 2 due to the 20-person limit that was outlined in the plan, making it fiscally impossible to operate during stage 2 or even into stage 3. In a previous thread, it was noted that some larger venues (like our theme parks) may be exempt from this 20-person limit subject to a COVID-Safe plan approved by the government. This however has yet to be clarified upon by the government, and as such, there is no confirmed timeline or date that are our parks will re-open on at this stage. Amusement parks (in particular Gold Coast theme parks) are working with the government to develop and approve COVID Safe plans to re-open for September School Holidays. Village Roadshow Theme Parks hope to re-open Sea World first in early July, followed by Warner Bros. Movie World & Wet 'n' Wild in time for September school holidays. Village Roadshow Theme Parks have announced re-opening dates for their parks. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Below is an updated list of major parks and their current state of re-opening. I'll continue to update with links and updates from the discussion. (last updated, 16th June, 2020 @ 9:58pm) Queensland Dreamworld: Closed WhiteWater World: Closed Warner Bros. Movie World: Re-opens 15th July Sea World: Re-opens 26th June Wet 'n' Wild Gold Coast: Re-opens 15th July Paradise Country: Re-opens 26th June Australian Outback Spectacular: Re-opens 3rd July Top Golf - Open Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary - Re-opens 26th June Australia Zoo - Open New South Wales Luna Park Sydney: Closed Raging Waters: Closed Victoria Funfields: Closed Luna Park Melbourne: Closed Western Australia Adventure World: Closed Sidenote: a reminder to all to keep this apolitical. Parkz is about having fun, not doxxing those you disagree with. If you're not sure about what's allowed to be posted, our community guidelines are a great read if you're bored during lockdown.

    Drone usage at gold coast parks

    You'll need to read the whole thing. Will paste here for the third time: "if a ride-op spots a drone near a ride like say Rivals, they're going to stop the ride and notify security out of abundance of caution for safety." By all means, contact the parks for permission first.

    Drone usage at gold coast parks

    I think you answered your own question - you can't fly over people. Going to re-quote myself for prosperity.

    Drone usage at gold coast parks

    Don't is my general suggestion. Follow CASA regulations but above all else use common sense - if a ride-op spots a drone near a ride like say Rivals, they're going to stop the ride and notify security out of abundance of caution for safety.

    New Attraction for Dreamworld Suggestions

    The majority of Disney's guests don't understand the science or the reasoning behind what makes parks like Disneyland so magical, but it's unquestionable that every single guest appreciates their attention to detail and it's why they continue to be the gold standard for theme parks globally.

    Vortex ride Delayed at SW

    I'd almost agree, but the hotel is "Australia's only theme park resort" and is a real money spinner for the chain.

    Shipping containers in Dreamworld car park

    Agreed. I'll miss Tower of Terror for sure, but the purist within likes the fact this will no longer seperate the park into two halves.
