Grab a Locals VIP Pass and you'll get... - Unlimited entry to the Big 3 Theme Parks for locals until June 30 2012 The Locals VIP Pass gives you unlimited entry to Warner Bros.

This is going to be the biggest year of theme park fun yet with the world's first SpongeBob ParadePants which is now open at Sea World as well as the out of this world GREEN LANTERN Coaster now open at Movie World. So for the biggest year of fun buy your Locals VIP Pass now! So you can pay $79.95 and get 39 days entry to the parkz... I think someone in marketing or website design needs a talking to...

Both the park, and Wyncenuros are making errors.

So for the biggest year of fun buy your Locals VIP Pass now!

-A 30th of June 2012 Expiry is not a "year of fun".

So you can pay $79.95 and get 7 days entry to the parkz...

-At the same time a 30th of June expiry is not 7 days away from now, its 39 days. Edited by Gazza

Corrected my error. Considering bub is due June 25 and that is 34 days away don't see how I did that. But the fact still remains they are advertising it at that date... Who will pay $79.95 now when they have been hitting it up at $39.95 for the last few weeks with that date? Emailed them about it because I would hate for their sales to take a dive :mellow:

So the reply.... Unfortunately, the Gold VIP passes can no longer be purchased, however if you are a current Gold VIP pass holder you are able to renew your pass by telephoning the Customer Connect team on 133 386. Regards But will they release them a little later like they did last year? They not releasing anything further at this point.

They were released last year at the same time as the normal VIP if I recall correctly. I would find it very odd if they do not offer Gold VIP's to new purchases. This entire launch is very odd with the new pass just showing up on the Box Office and no real promotion/PR release.

Just had a look at the VIP benefits page and they no longer have separate offers for Gold members. The early Saturday ride offer is still available though. I'm starting to wonder whether the VIP Gold renewal actually includes the same benefits next year round given the renewal price was the same as the vanilla VIP passes...

I would assume it is an oversight that their are no VIP offer/pdfs listed for this month. That said I also think that currently it appears the only perk guaranteed for the new round of Gold Passes is FN/WC. The new Pass is being advertised with the http://www.themeparks.com.au/ url that redirects to http://myfun.com.au/vip-pass.aspx with the price and details of upcoming attractions.

Where is my incentive to renew, if they're going to take one of my Gold benefits away? If the park early opens to general VIP holders - thats going to eliminate the point in having one. Instead, they should offer the gold again and see how many people JUMP at the chance to upgrade from a standard. I spoke to numerous people in park who asked me why I was the only one on the ride for half an hour - i told them I had the gold pass - they wanted to know where to get it from. Sure - Gold pass holders weren't flooding the gates last year. Half of the 'gold' benefits weren't made public when they were available for sale - all we were told was that it had FN\WC... and some additional 'member specials' that normal VIPs didn't get. So let's take a look at the additional benefits that were given: Exclusive queue line Early Entry with exclusive access (let's face it - it's ERT) Instead of canning the pass's availability to people to want to upgrade, and only making it available to renewals: 1. offer it again - except this time - make ALL the benefits public. 2. keep the price the same, or even up it (knowing what i know now, i'd have paid closer to $200 than $100). 3. Profit
