I picture something either this size or smaller if it cost a few million. This is Kahuna falls from AW costs 3 million AUD.

I have recently been to Sea World, and there is no way that this could be finished by this year. BUT something which resembles what this photo has in the corner, a volcano looking thing, is featured in the new area. So you might be on to something :)

When it comes to water parks, I dont think theming throughout is essential, but definitely a perk to have for individual rides. But when you look at some of the parks in the US, in particular, Volcano Bay; that water park looks incredible and the theme it has seems to really add to the overall experience and feel of the park. 

For me, WnW, despite not having a theme, the built up vegetation of the park really adds to it and makes it feel like a nice and relaxing place.

I think Australians tend to not care about theming because we never get any of it anyway.  I'd say we have 6 well themed rides and 4 of them are in the same park  when it comes to the GC. If we had more cohesive and immersive theming, then maybe people would care more.

I think theres also the question of "How do you theme a waterpark?"

And i think "Like Dubai" is a good way to answer that.

Or like this (Alton Towers waterpark, UK)

The Old Waterpark or the Old Old Waterpark?

It used to be part of the park, and free. Then someone had the brainy idea to close it to theme park patrons and make it part of the resort.

I expect that this will be included in admission - primarily because there won't be the capacity issues we saw with the mammoth, and because the park is so seriously lacking in things to do that they need to take the pressure of somewhere.

If this is an upcharge, VRTP need to just neck themselves.

Is the pad going to be included in admission or will it be up charge like the old waterpark.

The waterpark was only an upcharge for the last few years it was open. It was always free for everyone in Sea World before that!
