  1. 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.

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.
