Just got home from a day at Sea World on the Gold Coast! The park has closed quite a lot of attractions in the past few years, such as; Skyway, Sea Viper (Arrow Coaster), Vikings Revenge Flume Ride and Spongebob 3D. The problem is they haven't replaced them with new attractions! The park did say that they will construct a replacement for Vikings in 2019. Leaving only Storm and Jet Rescue as the only thrill rides in the park. But they have just built the new Nickelodeon Land with 3 themed areas (TMNT, Dora the Explorer and Spongebob). Definitely a great new fresh of life to a dying kids area. I got 2 rides on Storm Coaster and 3 on Jet Rescue. So lets get to the photos

I still feel like it was a complete waste of 20 million dollars, they could of gotten something so much better!

The all new shade and hub of the park.

The sad remains of two closed attractions (even though one was really stupid)

The games kind of ruin the nice feel of the hub.

The castle were the 3D theatre and Vikings Flume were, only just under 3 years until something replaces it.

The park looks wonderful, I especially like the Nick area. However, did Storm Coaster really cost around 20 million USD? Quite the investment for a park that small.

 

Yes it did, but that also includes a bit of deconstruction of Bermuda Triangle Flume Ride.

The thing I remember most from this park was how terrible the food was. Has that improved at all recently?

 

 

The food at Sea World hasn't improved that much at all. However at Dreamworld and even Movie World the food has dramatically improved. Just don't get a burger from the village theme parks

Most of the major parks in Australia are all owned by a chain, similarly to Merlin. Movieworld, Dreamworld/land? and this are all owned by village theme parks group plus maybe more I forgot.

half correct. Movie World, Sea World, and Wet n Wild (both Gold Coast & Sydney versions) are owned by Village Roadshow Theme Parks.

 

Dreamworld is owned by a company called Ardent Leisure.
