Sea World December 2017 Improvements


Recommended Posts

As has been occurring with Movie World, there have been a number of improvements happening around Sea World lately too.

Fast Track is no longer available at the park, with signs being replaced by Fast Photo

The Frozen Coke stand in The Plaza has received an upgrade

And the Seal Guardians set is now complete and staff were meeting and discussing the new show

Really bright and vibrant now

There is a cave in the far left corner

There is a pontoon bridge through the middle, quite a few props on the left stage and two cables with balls attached to them hanging across the water

 

A few other things to note or I believe should be done:

- There is still no 1 hour free locker hire for Storm or Jet Rescue (Hopefully this is implemented for these rides too)

- More shading should be added around JR as its quite an open area of concrete

- As posted yesterday all food stores and outlets were open when the park was closing, and can confirm all stores were open when the park opened.

The sneak peek thing is really just a demonstration of behaviours they have been teaching the animals..it isn't too bad.  Actually if they demonstrated a few more things and explained everything as in-depth as they do in this "preview" then it would be decent.

I expect the actual "show" to be worse as it apparently emphasises how we should protect the environment by recycling etc.  Saying you should recycle 100 times is not educational...this is one of my huge criticisms of the affinity dolphin show.  They don't actually tell you any facts about the animals, in that case the dolphins but over-emphasise a sound bite without giving you much to relate to.  Not very memorable.  Hopefully Seal Guardians is better and does actually create some memorable moments....

      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.

      Opening Hours - Plan your day at Sea World Gold Coast

      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
      Overview:




      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
