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.
Not sure if this has been discussed,
But does anyone else think that Village Roadshow should sell Sea World to 'Sea World Theme Parks & Resorts'? And if so, does anyone actually know the chances of it actually happening?
The park seems to have gotten worse over the years and it's honestly just sad, so I'm hoping that a decent company could make it 'good' again.
Plus if they did sell it, then it could help Village pay off debt. After all, they sold Wet'n'Wild Sydney, so what harm could selling Sea World do?
(By the way - if this has been discussed before then can someone please just link me to the thread?)
Village Roadshow has posted results for 1H17 this morning, with the presentation to happen later this afternoon.
For those interested, the slides from the ASX are posted here.
So far my favourite bits are:

And of course the interesting font use for the new campaign:

Hello! I decided to make this topic purely because Sea World aren't doing too great at the moment and are in need of some new ideas, SO, share them on here!
Personally, i think that they should be focussing on expanding the park and adding new attractions, while removing old ones. Have fun!
