The experiences you won't want to miss at Gold Coast's reopened theme parks

Rediscover the thrills at these famous Queensland attractions.

Queensland’s tourism industry has received a much-needed boost with Village Roadshow’s stable of theme parks and attractions now open. 

It’s the first time the full range of attractions – including Movie World, Wet’n’Wild, Sea World and Paradise Country and Farm Stay, Australian Outback Spectacular and Topgolf – have opened to guests since they were forced to close in March.

Under new COVID-safe guidelines, guests will need to adhere to 1.5m physical distancing through all venues, download the Village Roadshow Theme Parks app and load their entry tickets and use contactless payments.

Additionally, there will be increased sanitation stations around the parks, regular sanitising of rides will be enforced and close selfies with characters banned. For a full breakdown of park-specific changes, click here.

The opening of Village Roadshow theme parks comes after Australia Zoo and the Currumbin Wildlife opened their doors in June. 

Dreamworld and WhiteWater World are the only Gold Coast theme parks yet to announce when they will reopen.
