The only thing that's surprising about that is the arcade, as there are arcades that are open, and what's the difference between that and something like dodgems or tailspin? Otherwise not surprising really. Think it'll be a few rounds of eased restrictions to get everything back on track.

 

Also controversial, I'd totally give them a pass for waiting till September to reopen WWW. I'm still totally of the opinion that the water parks should be open year round, but this year I'd be OK with it. There are no tourists from Victoria or NZ to give the full Gold Coast experience to, the only people up at the moment are locals and we ain't swimming. WnW opens soon enough and by the time WWW is ready to reopen WnW will have most of its stuff opened too.

Wet n Wild is closed today due to 'Severe Weather'

It's hardly severe weather today. I guess it makes sense to close from an operational standpoint though as patronage would be super low on a cool and rainy day.

The carpark and some areas in the park regularly flood when there has been as much rain as we’ve had over the weekend. And with only a quarter of the park open and only a few dozen guests visiting when it’s sunny, it just isn’t worth them opening
