Visited Seaworld on Friday morning (27/10). Took a trip on the monorail to get some construction pictures of Cataway Reef. Enjoy!

Was open today

Another day, another new fountain.

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.

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.

      Operating Hours at Wet'n'Wild Gold Coast

      Monday - Wednesday the park will be closed.
      Thursday operating as it has normally during off-peak (10-3)
      Friday-Sunday normal operating hours.
      I will be surprised if they keep Wet n Wild open through Winter this year. It struggles through winter on a normal year, and during those years there's always plenty of debate on why it's open, I'm sure there's plenty more support for that debate this year. All I'll say on that debate is that you're extremely lucky if you get close to 1000 people (a day) through the gates, there are many days where 10% of that is hard to reach.
      Good weather days during the holidays are exceptions to the 1000 people rule, but they don't justify months of operation.

      Warner Bros. Movie World Gold Coast operating hours

      I'm expecting that both Sea World and Movie World will reduce weekday operating hours through winter as well. Especially noting the conservative date ranges currently shown. (and once this happens, Dreamworld will obviously follow suit; if they don't announce it first)
      Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if COVID sees our parks completely adapt their operating schedules. Weekend operation of our main parks, Seasonal operation of the water parks. There are plenty of logistical issues with that, especially with contracted and salaried workforces. So it's not super likely to happen, but I can't say I don't see them moving closer to it.
      I know most of you are going to jump to "That doesn't make any sense, plenty of people still go to the parks during this time." As enthusiasts we have to understand that what we THINK makes sense, and what actually makes sense, are in many cases very different.
      Reducing hours means that you're increasing density of guests on the hours/days you're actually open, which means you're far better justifying the minimum number of staff you're required to have there anyway. Doesn't mean it'll feel any busier, especially without international tourists being here, and it goes without saying that a large majority of locals spend far less than interstate and international tourists, which is the part everyone seems to forget when talking about operating hours.
      this is all talking about off-peak, I'm not suggesting they'll change anything during the peak September-January season.

      I thought I'd start a seperate forum for Leviathan specific construction updates, so that we can easily follow the coaster in one place.
      This was my first time seeing the vertical construction progress, so I took my big camera lens to the park to get some close up shot of the construction

      Close ups:

      Despite the coaster not yet reaching it max height, it can already be seen for a lot of different points across the park

      I just thought of marking a place for us to share stories from Theme parks whether they’re insane, scary or happy share them here. Here’s one from theme parks me I remember going into hot wheels sidewinder just to look at the queue because I was too scared to go on it

      Don’t know what’s going on with the photos so just try your best to ignore it thanks
