Village Roadshow Buys Another US Park

3 posts in this topic

Village Roadshow Limited (VRL) has secured a long-term management deal with Phoenix's Waterworld Safari water park today, with Village Roadshow stating that they wish to transform the park into a world-class venue. VRL will operate the Phoneix water park on behalf of the Maricopa County Parks & Recreation Department. Village Roadshow Managing Director Graham Burke said, “The Phoenix transaction represents a major step forward in our plans to take our highly successful Gold Coast water park formula to the United States.” “The Phoenix market is a superb fit for our business, with its long hot summers and year-round warm climate. With nearly four point two million people living in the Phoenix metropolitan area, and over thirteen million overnight visitors to Phoenix each year, we have the vital ingredients in place to create something special,” he added. Village Roadshow plans to expand the park in 2009 and 2010 with a budget of twenty-five million dollars. Action-packed rides like ProSlide's Tornado and Superbowl are planned for the park. This buyout follows VRL's buyout of Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park in Oahu, Hawaii and a conditional agreement with Queensland's Aussie World earlier this year. Village Roadshow Limited will officially take control of the park from October 8 this year.

The Phoenix transaction represents a major step forward in our plans to take our highly successful Gold Coast water park formula to the United States.
But what is WnW's formula? Being the only major water park in a sun drenched country for more than 20 years? No doubt WnW is a great park, but I cant really see what sets their formula apart from most other water parks.
