The Parkz Update: Sea World, August 2014
Sea World's Sea Viper has been almost completely demolished in under a week, changing the skyline of the park forever. In this Parkz Update we check in on the park for one final look at the iconic roller coaster.
Sea World's Sea Viper closes after 32 years
The oldest roller coaster on the Gold Coast has today had its closure officially announced after an ongoing period of maintenance and inactivity. Opening in 1982 as Corkscrew, the coaster was one of a small handful of similar rides remaining in operation from steel roller coaster pioneer Arrow Dynamics.
Sea World Corkscrew replaced by new attraction
MyFun, the ticketing portal and online presence for Warner Village Theme Parks, have reported the iconic Corkscrew Rollercoaster will no longer be entertaining riders as it has for the past 27 years. In its place will be the exact same ride, with a colour change and a new train – arguably the most exciting new attraction to hit the Gold Coast this summer!
